    Monopoly for Switch does about everything right. The game offers numerous boards and you can adjust the rules to suit every need. And you can play the game where ever you want with up to six players. The waiting time with six players is long though.

    While Monopoly for Nintendo Switch doesn’t feel like a big enhancement of the three-year-old iteration that came before, the flexibility of options it retains does incentivize those initially put off by the game’s infamously, never-ending demeanor. Unfortunately the questionable frame-rate levels, wonky online experience, not to mention the plague of lengthy load times one can suffer through at unknown times, ultimately stop the game far short of being considered an essential Switch library addition. Charming and surprisingly effective moreso with its strategic elements it might be, the issues present will require anyone going into this to be just that bit more wary.

    Monopoly for Nintendo Switch is just alright. It doesn't do anything majorly wrong and does exactly what the product claims. That product, mind you, isn't anything majorly exciting and would have benefitted from a bit more content. It’s interesting playing an animated version, and if you are in for the commitment you can have a decent time. That being said, there are plenty of party games on the Switch that offer more instant fun.

    If Monopoly is your thing, you can’t really go wrong with Monopoly for Nintendo Switch. It performs exactly how you’d expect it to – offering an almost exact, neatly-executed copy of the experience that you can get from the board game. This is its main problem, though – it does so little to offer anything new that it almost seems pointless having it in the first place. Call us old-fashioned if you like, but we’d play the board game version over this one any day.

    Monopoly on the Switch works, much as it did on PlayStation 4. There are some nice little elements, like themed boards, which don’t change the gameplay in any way, but are fun to see. All the popular Monopoly house rules are in there too, so however you like to play the game you’re covered. Loading times are a bit long, and the AI takes its sweet time to take each turn, but otherwise it’s a very clean, visually appealing take on the board game.

    Monopoly super-fans will likely find the Switch version to be another great addition to their already-heaving collection, but for the rest of you you'll be getting an identical experience without the heart or soul.

    Basically, don’t bother with Monopoly on Switch until it becomes way cheaper, and with far fewer bugs and glitches.

    I love this game. The load times have been fixed with a patch and it now loads very fast. The living boards look very good and the attentionI love this game. The load times have been fixed with a patch and it now loads very fast. The living boards look very good and the attention to detail is great. If you look closely you can see details !ike a window washer on the side of a building or a swat team practicing abseiling on the police station. Very "living"! The classic board looks a bit boring and they could at least have added a nice environment like a living room in the background. I don't care too much as I bought it mainly for the living boards. All in all I'm super happy with my purschase. Expand

    Usually, I go into a lot of detail and opinion in my reviews but how much could I possibly write about Monopoly. The game has been aroundUsually, I go into a lot of detail and opinion in my reviews but how much could I possibly write about Monopoly. The game has been around longer than anyone reading this has been alive and has probably been on every major console in the history of gaming. The biggest difference now is that it is on a legit portable console. However, Ubisoft did not really take advantage of this.

    I guess your expectations have to be a little different when you are playing a video game based on a board game. The first thing the game has to do be able to do is let you play Monopoly in a way that feels authentic to real life. I am happy to report that it does a very good job of this. Unfortunately, Ubisoft did not go much further than this in that it only gives you a few board pieces to collect through accomplishing certain achievements in the game and has a few custom boards such a haunted theme and a theme park theme. Other than that you do not get much else but at least there are options to customize your games and play with your own set of rules. The AI is also fairly competent.

    Not much more for me to say other than if this is on sale and you want to play monopoly on your Switch than go ahead and pick this one up. You are getting what you would expect. 6/10 Okay.

WeMonopoly has always been a classic game to play, however when me and my family were playing the game it crashed and deleted our save file. We all wanted a refund immediately and sadly we got the digital version so this is impossible with the eshop since all sales are final for digital games. We were having such a fun time playing until this happened and we were so far in the game that we just didn't want to start over. Expand

    I bought this title on the switch store to play with friends during the epidemic. The software was all up to date and my internet connectionI bought this title on the switch store to play with friends during the epidemic. The software was all up to date and my internet connection was good. I was having a fun time playing with my friends but about 2 hours in I clicked the button to make a trade and the game suddenly had an error and booted me from the online game. The game does not allow you to rejoin a game in progress and put my assets were up for auction to my friends who were still online. It's untrustworthy and will waste your time by not allowing you to finish games you start. The graphics and game play aren't very advanced and this game is a few years old so I really can't fathom how they haven't worked out most bugs. Their support team also wasn't very helpful. I would say avoid this game until another company besides Ubisoft remakes it. Expand
