I rented this game as a precursor to buying it, and I'm glad I did. My son and I are big fans of Monopoly and love playing old school on a board and on the computer or whichever console happens to get going at the time. That said, the voices were very annoying, the animations were not that great, and we got bored very quickly. We played for maybe an hour before it went back in the mailbox.
Cute for a while. The Wii version is lacking internet play and does not use the wii's controller in any normal wii fashion, only button pushes. That's a big downfall. Appears to have been made by non-Wii programmers. Very disappointing. It is better than the old wii monopoly game but not by much.
I like Monopoly, and I like Wii, But this game CHEATS. At first I just thought that the computer was lucky, avoiding all of my properties every round, but after the computer avoided all my properties (especially properties with houses) EVERY game....I have deduced that the game cheats. I lost 12 out of 15 games due to the computer players avoiding my properties. And that was on Easy AI.
