    In short, it's Monopoly, only prettier and easier to get out and put away than the board game. Now if you excuse me, I need to roll doubles to try and get out of jail.

    Monopoly Streets is a fantastic rendition of the classic board game that offers up just about any combination of play styles you can imagine.

    Monopoly Streets isn't going to make new fans if you already find the core Monopoly gameplay boring and mundane, but if you're a fan of Monopoly and want a version to play on your home console, whether online or offline, you probably needn't look any further.

    If you like Monopoly you'll like Monopoly Streets. But it you like it, you will probably already have the table-top game at home, and would prefer to play it without watching a television. But its virtue lies in the possibility to set up specific rules, and add additional extras to a basic formula, specially in online modes.

    If you love Monopoly, but couldn't care less about online play, get a 2008 version. It makes no sense to pay extra for pretty much the only new feature.

    EA hasn't done that bad a job here, but I'd personally rather stick with the real thing.

    Monopoly Streets does have some aces to play, but can't make us forget that it's still funnier with the real tabletop version.

    If you enjoyed the board version of this game, you will enjoy Monopoly: Streets. Indeed, it it different in many ways, but it's so much easier to play on the PS3 then playing the Monopoly World board game with the credit card and every transaction that you need to do manually every time you rent or buy something... I wish you could play 6 players like the board game, you can only play 4 players. I would also enjoy some minigames on the side, like Mario Party or something... because it would make the game much more interactive. Also, i'd appreciate more available character since there is only about 10 of them, which are by the way all annoying and childest. Gameplay is good, simple. Graphics are okay... I mean it's a board game. There is some downloadable content but the thing is most of them are not free, which is pretty stupid. For example, you have to buy a new board 5 bucks to play it... a damn board?! And finally, I don't get it in 2011 why they haven't think yet of a Monopoly version that you could totally personalize your board, change prices, name of places, characteristics of cards, etc. It would make this game so much better and enjoyable. But, despite all my negative comments this is still a game to get to play with your family :) I recommand it, but don't get too high expectations!!

    My final score is a 8.

    In short, Monopoly Streets is exactly what you expect. The replay value is particularly long and the game is fun online or with actual friends. The new visual style, showing off the streets is still nice looking even though the graphics could actually be better. Expand

    It was really fun in the beginning but it's too expensive and after a short while you just get tired off it. The biggest problem I had though is that everyone seems to be tired of monopoly so I had not one friend or family member who wanted to play it with me. Sad, isn't it? Online play is impossible because it's too buggy. Expand

    When the game works, this is some fun to be found here. But what I've experienced so far has been a buggy absolute mess. Save-files that don't save. Trophy's I've clearly won that don't unlock. And if you're playing someone online, and they quit (which happens often if they're losing), prepare for the game to lock up very soon.
    They released one patch so far, and from what I've read, only made matters worse.
    Hopefully a new patch comes soon. But currently as-is, the PS3 version sucks.

    This game's online play is a mess. I want my $30 back. Online play is so buggy that you'll probably only get through an entire game without it freezing about 40% of the time. EA keeps the disappointments rolling. Expand
