- Summary: To celebrate its 75th anniversary, the world of Monopoly comes to life through a living, breathing city that you can build, own, and monopolize. MONOPOLY STREETS has everything you love about the board game, presented as a street level tour of Mr. Monopoly's fully animated world.
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.… Expand
3When 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.… Expand
