Acceptable but disappointing

The first version of Monopoly for Wii was actually very good. This new version was advertised as being different and new because of it's presentation of the game board as a real city. It would be reasonable to assume that, since this is the only significant difference, a lot of detail and creativity would be put into it. This just isn't the case.

My chief disappointment is that while, like the last title, additional game boards with fun themes are unlockable, THEY'RE NOT 3D! In fact, they're the exact same boards! Seriously. There's only one unlockable board that has 3D city features that are supposedly the reason this game exists. Like the first board, it's short on creativity and even novelty.

The game's tokens are represented alongside characters that have voices. The voices are so deeply annoying and add so much time to the game that you'll be quite thankful that it's possible to turn them off.

The one great redeemer that justifies playing this instead of the original is greater control over the game rule parameters. In particular I love the new speed die, which is a third die that rolls with the usual two that has two new special faces that actually add a great deal to game play.

Okay but not okay

We only kept this game for a day, and only played it once. We played the speed version, after an hour we forced ourselves bankrupt so we could quit. Its okay but the graphics could be better for being new version and all.

It is cool to see your buildings grow but not as impressive as the commercial makes it seem. The game play is somewhat confusing and we played with our 12 year old and still struggled. If I was going to choose between this and the regular in the box board game.... old school would def win!

Lots of fun for the family, and better than actually playing on the real board. Try it out and have a blast
