Personally, I think the standard version is actually easier than the so called easy one. If you run out of money in the easy version the only option you have is to sell one of your shops(there is no such thing as a mortgage). However, the standard version allows you to buy stocks which you can sell for a profit and even use to slow your competitors down. There are more than a dozen unique boards to play on and tons of things to unlock to personalize your mii with. I would have preferred the movement of your character to be automatic until you come to a fork in the road but instead you have to move it step by step. Overall, I think this game is a simpler but more interesting version of monopoly. I hope they make a version for the DS or 3DS(the graphics are simple enough that it shouldn't be that hard). They may have to limit the content like they did with mario party but it would still be worth it as long as they kept the standard mode(if they limit it to one, that's my preference).
