Pros: very nice board game to digital translation, less mess, easy to carry, ...
Cons: negotiations are kind of tricky for real bargainers
Hate the mess of board games? Hate the calculating of money, transfer of funds, all those cards... HEY THIS IS FOR YOU! One of many classic board games digitized to elecronic rebirth, this version of Monopoly is a welcome addition to your library, especially for those of you who just want a simple game.
Graphics: In comparison to the old 8-bit Nintendo version I knew and the 16bit versions I have seen, this game is an improvement, the picturesque deed cards are wonderfully fitted to their worth and are visually descriptive. the movements of your game piece across the board are also fluid and even comical. While you must realize its a purely digitized version of a SIMPLE BOARD GAME, the graphics are about as nice as you can have.
Sound: Multiple playing tracks set the mood for a calming or exciting game of Monopoly. Sound effects at corner spaces are also pretty nice.
Controls: Controls, like the game, are simple and easy. direct the pointer with the d-pad for selections and another button rolls. It's nice and easy. Interactions between players are also easy, however it is difficult when dealing to propose a slight change in offers without resetting the whole deal, therefore not all that great for those who like to negotiate via controller as in the old Nintendo 8-bit version.
Fun Factor: All the fun of Monopoly without the mess, calculations, and cleanup. Its a gotta have if you like the game, its full of replay and options even for when you are home alone and up for a game.
