Many years ago, while wandering around a shop in the US, I happened upon the CD-ROM version of the ever-popular board game of Monopoly. Always wary of knock-offs, I was pleased to see that this was produced by the owners of the original Monopoly game, Hasbro, and decided to pick up this PC...

Some problems if playing a foreign board (see op)

I’m not a frequent player of computer games – in fact, I only possess three in total for my PC. It is the latest addition to this extensive collection that I wish to write about, Monopoly, which I acquired from streetsonline, where it is sold for only 17.99. In this op, rather than...

“Uncle moneybags is the man”

Graphics

None

A CD-ROM of the most popular board game ever hit my PC about a year ago, since then it also hit the playstation! Uncle Moneybags is the narrator, although he doesnt really narrate, and shows you around the famous streets of London, just like the boardgame. This game has been turned into a 3D...

If you've ever found yourself playing shorter versions of the boardgame version of Monopoly because it's just too complicated to work out all the mortgaging and so on, you'll welcome this version! It's exactly like the boardgame, and it even includes variations on the standard rules, so if you're...

Monopoly, but on computer

Monopoly, but on computer

Monopoly is arguably the world's best-known board game; basically it is a turn-based game in which you buy and sell property, build on the property, charge rent to any opponent who lands on said property and attempt to bankrupt all your opponents and be the only one left. Like all computerised...

“Estate Agents Beware”

Easy to play, customizable rules

Animations tend to slow down the game.

Wheel and deal with stacks of cash, with an excellent version of the world-popular board game. The playstation version is simple and easy to play. You can have between 2 and four players as a combination of your friends and computer opponents. The board is exactly the same as the original board...

great graphics, very very addictive.

Can take a long time to finish a game.

This is a very very addictive game. Everyone knows about monopoly, the general gameplay, rules and how to win. This version of the game brings it to life every aspect of the game is animated, to the sports car zoom of around the board, the ship rocks and goes up and down as if in the sea. You can...

Ok well depends what type of a gamer you are but personally after the first few weeks of buying the game (because it was in the 3 for £10 section at game) It ends up being one of them games that gets shoved to the back of the shelf or is on ebay! To be fair if your a monopoly fan that game is...
