    It's just great fun. [Christmas 2008, p.101]
  2. It’s a calculated, strategic exercise that requires ample time and patience. The Wii version gracefully combines the classic gameplay with new variations in a format that’s visually pleasing, entertaining to play, and a very strong representation of the Monopoly experience on a gaming console.

    It's by no means a killer application but Monopoly is a faithful reproduction of a timeless classic.
  4. It’s always refreshing to be able to play it with impartial AI, and the AI difficulty settings are well judged, but unless you’re a total addict, chances are this is one for the game shelf, only to be dusted off on the odd occasion.

The music is good enough to not get tired of which is important in games that can last an hour. The Monopoly Man can be pretty funny sometimes. I feel that the computer does unfairly gives people breaks which can prolong the game. Also, the computer is idiotic when it comes to trading. I dislike the automatic rent when you land on property. Overall, a fun Monopoly game that is relatively quick compared to the board game. Full Review »

Although it diminishes the fun that board games like the Monopoly board game brings, its an easier and lazier way to play, and at this stage in age, how bad can that be. Full Review »

The lack of online multiplayer and the voice over that gets old quick set this game back, but it was nice to see different board themes and tokens. I recommend it. Full Review »
