  1. Monopoly is Monopoly. Can’t make it much plainer than that.
  2. For what it's worth, those dice animations really are the best we've ever seen. [Christmas 2008, p.119]
  3. EA has managed to produce a competent virtual version of the classic board game, but we still can't recommend it over buying the real thing. You get numerous boards and the questionable Get Rich Quick mode, but you lose so much by not being able to play the way you want.
  4. The game is not criminally poor, and nowhere near as painful as having red hot needles shoved into your eyes, but at times you get an insidious feeling that those involved put as little effort as possible into delivering the final product.

    This game is so basic AND BORING! It really has no special features except for a few little games you could find on your PC for free. For the This game is so basic AND BORING! It really has no special features except for a few little games you could find on your PC for free. For the money it is NOT worth it. You have more fun playing it in real life! Expand
