Don't get me wrong this game is fun to play, but no XBL. there is also a real lack of options. I just wish I could turn the old dudes voice off, or all the little times you get a monopoly and the show your property turn gold. If you could turn that off it would sped things up a bit. finally, one of the major things in the game is your passport. but there is no way to look at it while your playing. anyway, just rent it, unless you have kids or someone to play with.

I personally liked it. It was fun and and most of the achievements are easy to get. I'd say you could raise your gamer score 700 points easy from playing. However, because of it's repetitiveness and lack of forward process (meaning the only thing you can open up are new board styles) If your like me you will get bored after a few days. It would be better rented than bought.
This game is very lacking from what one would expect. NO XBOX LIVE. Aside from that there aren't many "house rules" variations and there aren't many diffrent ways to play the classic game. The game always has 4 players regardless, no more no less. There is no way to cut out the animations so the gameplay is very slow. Richest is a good idea but not what it should be. It winds up being a lazy attempt at Mario Party.
