    Pros: nothing to clean up, lots of options
    Cons: but not enough useful options, game progresses slowly, the computer makes dumb decisions

    Summary: The Same Old Monopoly I like a good game of monopoly. However, just playing with the original rules all the time can get to be very boring. I like to play with the Beyond Boardwalk rules, which spice up the action quite a bit. I got ... read more

    Pros: Nice and easy to play
    Cons: Quite boring

    Summary: I brought this game because it sounded good and looked alright. I had played the board game many times in my life. Hours of my life wasted. But there you go, it was a fun. So i ventured out to my local store and and paid for the promising Monopoly ... read more

  • Monopoly - NOT the beloved board game

    Dec 24, 2001 by

    Pros: it's Monopoly, so you already know HOW to play the game...but...
    Cons: pretty boring, little action, the game "plays itself".

    Summary: I grew up, as did many of you, with memories of the cousins gathered around grandma's dining room table for hours, playing the game of Monopoly, trying to beat my brother or older cousin, usually unsuccessfully - but loving the hours of intense and ... read more

    Pros: Great classic, family game. No animated violence
    Cons: Still takes awhile to play!

    Summary: 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. ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The graphics are pretty nice...
    Cons: Just that you can't make any rules of your own is the bad part.

    Summary: Monopoly is my all time favorite game in the world. Usually, when you play with your family, you can add some different rules of your own to make the game more fun for all of you. When you play now, you can't add any rules. The game is still ... read more

  • Monopoly- graphically uninspiring

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: If you like monopoly and don't care about graphics it's probably enjoyable.
    Cons: Silly graphics

    Summary: This game suffered most from its attempt to look "cute." It just ended up looking silly instead. It's basically not that special, just another computer port of the board game. I've seen 2d versions on computer that were a lot more fun than ... read more

    Pros: graphics, gameplay
    Cons: sound

    Cons: I'm still thinking about that one.

    Summary: As a kid I never really played very many board games. No friends, busy family. I think that I played half a game of Candyland once though, I got all the way to Candy-Cane Lane. Than, a vision of heaven struck itself upon me: MONOPOLY. The game is ... read more

    Pros: No little pieces to keep up with.
    Cons: Looooong, just like regular Monopoly.

    Summary: Have you always loved playing monopoly, but hated keeping up with all the little pieces. Did you NEVER trust the banker? Like your Uncle Tom, who always seemed to never run out of money. If you fall into the categories above and you ... read more

    Pros: Its monopoly
    Cons: It's monopoly on playstation

    Summary: My ty-raid continues against board games on game platforms. I have nothing against Board games but they don't belong on home consoles. They should be played for real, with friends or other people. I played this game, and I just didn't see the fun in or ... read more

    Pros: Non
    Cons: Game Speed is Slow

    Summary: I have tried many video versions of Monopoly and am almost ready to conclude that it is impossible to capture the essence of the board game digitally. The biggest problem is AI. I mean, when you play with humans and someone is being stupid, you tell him, ... read more

    Pros: It's monopoly...
    Cons: it's monopoly...

    Summary: The PlayStation version of the classic game of Monopoly is hard to review. The game is very simplistic, but the classic board game is that way. The question posed by the game is, “should the video game be more?” If the answer to the question is yes, ... read more
