I found myself so bored of this game so quickly, i put it back into the mail the day i recieved it. Not only did it make me feel bad for the original creator of Monopoly, ut i feel bad for anyone renting this game! Here's my reasons:
Gameplay: very slow paced and boring. Each player takes turns rolling the dice and then moves the number of spaces on the dice. Some slots have places you can buy for a fee, which you can whole-heartedly deny, or you can land on a space allowing you take a card from the Chance Deck. Chance Deck cards can vary from paying 1,000 hard-earned bucks, or earning 10 to 15 dollars. Seems fun, right? Nope, it gets really boring and pointless after fifteen minutes...
Graphics: Graphics suck... what else can i say? Sorry if this part is a bit too short and lacks details, but i really can't put in any details on how fake, and stupid looking the Graphics looked.
AI: You will find yourself screaming at the AI who continuously beat you EVERY TIME. It is WAY more fun to play with friends, instead of the annoyingly smart and devious AI. Trust me, you're whole effort to raise money and become a millionaire will be undermined the second it's the AI's turn. Playing with friends is way more rewarding.
Conclusion: Some people may really like this, i can see why; Monopoly brings back the old memories of a truly great game. But is it worth buying a PS3 (or Xbox 360) just to play Monopoly when you cna go to Toys R Us and buy one for a buck? Nope. Anyway, see ya'll.
I think they did an excellent job on this one. The older version of same game was very poorly done. This revision has music, interactions, better interface, animations, and produced the [expected] flow of entertainment in the gaming multimedia platform. They brought in sounds, voice talents, and made this classic board game as exciting as it can be on the system.
It's kind of ironic, because when you want to play a classic board game, you should pull out, dust off and gather up the pieces of the actual board game! But this generation will at least get an idea of what games were like "in the old days!"
