Pros: Great classic, family game. No animated violence
Cons: Still takes awhile to play!
I have always loved the game Monopoly. My only problem is that it's so long that no one wants to play the board game with me and that makes me sad. My husband bought me the Playstation game for Christmas so I'll always have someone to play me.
The game is highly animated with lots of choices and options. All of the material from the classic board game is included, along with many, many extras along the way.
All of the board pieces are included on the game in an animated fashion. Of course, there's the little dancing, animated banker fellow on there as well. It's nice to see a game that I grew up with, come to life in such an excellent manner!
The game features great sound effects as well. You can modify the sound as well as most other features of the game. It takes a few minutes to get used to the menus but selecting your choices is as easy as can be.
Monopoly is now one of the greatest hits of Playstation. It did take us a while to locate a copy. All of the stores were sold out. We managed to find this copy at KBKids.com. It may take a little searching, but if you want it bad enough, you'll find it.
So, if you want a piece of your childhood, a little nostalgia, a classic family game, then get this one! You'll enjoy it for hours and hours. Next time you are in the mood to play and no one else wants to, you are in luck, there are lots of computer players just waiting for you!
