    Don't get me wrong- I'm a Monopoly nut. But sadly, this game isn't Monopoly. Last I checked, Monopoly allows up to 8 players. Last I checked, the version of Monopoly that they made for the SNES back in 199X allows up to 8 players. So I wonder, who was the moron who decided this version should only have up to 4? Even when playing against the AI? Monopoly fans will be sorely Don't get me wrong- I'm a Monopoly nut. But sadly, this game isn't Monopoly. Last I checked, Monopoly allows up to 8 players.

Even when playing against the AI? Monopoly fans will be sorely disappointed by this title. And to think it was popular enough to be ported to every platform in existence. Even on the freakin' PC it limits you to 4 players (how do we spot a crappy console port again?) Sorry, but the title lies. Despite the unique board, the monocle-clad protagonist, and the little metal dog, this game is not Monopoly. Monopoly has 8 players. Expand

    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 Massive disappointment.

    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 Somehow they didn't include online play. Xbox live is the main reason I wanted Monopoly in video game form at all.

    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.

  1. What a colossal mistake! [Dec 2008, p.93]
  2. A faithful conversion with a clever spin on game play on the Richest mode. It’s a real shame there is no online play.
  3. With Monopoly for the Xbox 360 you're actually getting a really fun and well thought through experience worthy of the table top version. This very fact makes the absence of an online mode incomprehensible since this is an experience not meant to have by yourself. Because of this omission the table top version still rules supreme.
