I play it with my girlfriend and friends its just monopoly without having to pull out your old box and trying to remember how to play (rules, etc..) This game makes it simple, it knows all the rules, explains the game very easily, does all the math and banking for you, but at the same time allows you to make trades with other players at your leisure. 1 to 4 players. NO ONLINE, NONE AT ALL! I know it's lame, my friends and I had 1 especially disappointing night when we discovered that. But IT'S FUN! It also has many different boards to play on with different themes and stuff. I've had it about 2 weeks and am about done with it now. IT IS WHAT IT IS....>MONOPOLY!
This game is pretty fun. My wife doesn't like horror games like i do, so this gives us some bonding time on the 360. It has standard monopoly with about 10 different boards, mini games, and Richest games. Even though I'm 24 years old i would recommend this game to anyone.
I like monopoly, but come on... feels like the developers played this game once and stuck it on the shelves.
Pros: It's Monopoly Up to 4 players ( no multiplayer) Easy 600+ achievement points Several cool boards to choose from
Cons: -the little monopoly guy is annoying, after the first couple of playthru's you should be able to turn him off...but you can't. Thus he goes thru his 'tips' schpeal every game. For those with a lack of patience or who easily know the rules, you should just be able to turn him off and enjoy the game. -On the Richest game mode, you have to choose 4 players... you + your friends + the rest CPU... so if you and ur buddy just want to have a game, you're out of luck. -The mini games between rounds of the Richest mode give unfair advantages to the losing players... i understand them trying to keep the player with the most cash from overtaking the board, but some of these disadvantages per mini game are ridiculous. That should also be an option to turn off. -Very little options to choose from. -This game felt like an opportunity to highlight their new Richest Game -while i can't prove it... i am suspicious of the 'randomness' of the dice rolls... play through the game a few times, you'll see what i mean.
Conclusion: Easy points for those obsessed over gamerscore. It's monopoly, so if you're tired of your same ol' board game, try this version. Definitely a "Rent" only game... owning it would be horribly frustrating to me. It's a good start for a game, but needs a little bit of polishing in my opinion.
