  • Summary: The Monopoly Party game is the fastest way to discover what your friends are really like. It's an intense buying, trading, building, and deal-making frenzy because every player moves at the same time. Here's how it works: Everyone rolls a set of dice at the same time. As soon as everyone rolls, everyone moves. Just roll and go. Then do all of the things you love, such as buy property, pass "Go," and draw cards from "Community Chest." Play Monopoly Party and find out who will cut you a deal when the chips are down and who will bankrupt you out of the game. Collapse

  1. With only room for four players and no Live play, the party aspect of this game is somewhat limited.
  2. Something does seem to be missing in this translation, and the game seems a little sanitized.
  3. On the one hand, aside from the camera issue, it’s a solid adaptation of the board game with a unique twist. On the other hand, I still prefer to play the actual board game, and the lack of online support makes this an exclusive party.
  4. The sad thing is that, like the real game, this is consigned to be played once or twice and then put away to collect dust for half a year before being dug out again on a rainy day.

    Not bad technically, but it just seems pointless.
  6. On a console, you're left with a classic board game and no nifty little houses to roll around in your hand and lost under the couch. [Dec 2002, p.144]
  7. We don't really need video versions that make the game ridiculously more difficult. [Jan 2003, p.80]

    The game was easier due to the fact that you have no mess to clean up, and it is alot of fun!

    It's got traditional monopoly which is done well. I like how it included the option for all kinds of different rules that some people disagree on. But, the downside of this game is the non traditional stuff. The party part is absolutely terrible, and the board themes are the worst. Expand
