Pros: Good old traditional family game
Cons: Too slow, boring graphics
Monopoly for the Playstation is a good game. My sister got it for Christmas, and I got Life, which I definitely recommend better than this game.
The object of the game, you know it. Everybody's known it for about 70 years. You get to try to become the most powerful person in Atlantic City by trying to buy everything you can and making people pay for the use of your utilities, while avoiding jail, hospital stays etc etc.
The graphics are tremendously boring. Just looking at the tv makes you want to fall asleep. And the game can be too long for one to finish play in only one game.
But the game overall has its plus sides, and thats what makes the game entertaining. In the first place, there is a new token you can choose to play with, the airplane. Then, you can save the games and come back and play 1 year later if you can. And althought the game is long most of the time, it provides close finishes and it allows people to leave the game room in excitement as it always provides great finishes between the winner and the second place player.
Monopoly won't monopolize the game market, but it sure will make "stock traders" check it out!
