  1. A dull, expensive experience, but it's faithful to the board game, at least. Yawn. [Jan 2009, p.70]
  2. What a colossal mistake! [Dec 2008, p.93]

    The monopoly board game is more fun than this video game. How do you screw up porting a fun board game to xbox? The action is slow and boring. The interface is not good. It's actually disorienting since the board is constantly spinning around -- hard to see where you are. The whole thing is lacking in every way. Full Review »

    Somehow they didn't include online play. Xbox live is the main reason I wanted Monopoly in video game form at all. If this was an xbox live arcade game for 400pts / 5$, I'd still feel ripped off if they didn't include online play. But this game is a full fledged, expensive game. It's a major rip off. I gave it a 1 since some of the ideas in the game are okay (gameplay modes etc). But they didn't include enough to warrant the price. Full Review »

    Massive disappointment. I fail to see how the same developer as the fantastic Monopoly Party (PS2/Xbox/GC) - a game that has an incredibly smooth and easy interface - could then create a version on a more advanced console that is clunky, awkward, slow, and confusing to play... and with no control options to speak of, you're stuck with it. Well, actually, no I'm not... it went back to the store the day after I got it. Stick with the last-gen version, you'll be VERY glad you did. Full Review »
