Mr Moneybags Wants You to be RICH! Diamond review

AdvantagesEasy to Set up, Easy to Play, Fun for the whole family

DisadvantagesThe music can be annoying and you could cheat, if you wanted to

"...the owners of the original Monopoly game, Hasbro, and decided to pick up this PC version of the game. Remember, this was many years ago, and I believe it cost me all of US $5 and it came with no box at all – just in a cellophane wrapper around the regular CD case. The Installation Stuff: Normally all you have to do these days is put the CD into the drive, close the door and the program will automatically begin to install itself. However, this ..." Read review

Cash, Fun and Ritzy Property

AdvantagesAddictive, no board or pieces to lose, choice of game type, ability to customise

DisadvantagesSome problems if playing a foreign board (see op)

"...have the room for a monopoly board when it was all set up. Games can often take several hours and more than one sitting to complete, so it would be impractical. Furthermore, at the moment, finding a game partner, or partners, would be almost impossible – St Andrews has become a summer town of OAPs and tourists. So for me, the computer version was ideal since it needed neither space nor any human players. You can play against computer opponents, ..." Read review

Uncle moneybags is the man

AdvantagesGraphics

DisadvantagesNone

"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 animated, sound made version. The railway stations have life like noises of the hustle and bustle of the busy station of London. There are the 3D effects ..."

Monopoly updated, streamlined and a lot of fun

AdvantagesIntelligent, fun version of the classic boardgame

DisadvantagesIrritating music, too many graphics, a couple of software glitches

"...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 used to playing a version in which landing on Free Parking gets you all the fine-money, you can do that too. The software includes AI players, and you can play with a mix of human and AI players. This game ..." Read review

Monopoly

AdvantagesMonopoly, but on computer

DisadvantagesMonopoly, 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 versions of board games, if you're just playing against human opponents, you're better off with the board game itself. The computer version's advantages are ..." Read review

Estate Agents Beware

AdvantagesEasy to play, customizable rules

DisadvantagesAnimations 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 game, with free parking as my favorite square. You can customize the rules to make individual games more interesting, such as landing on free parking means ..." Read review

Disadvantagesboring

"“The world’s favourite game in live action 3D.” I loved Monopoly, well the bored game anyway. I played it for months on end when I was younger. Now, being in the 21st century, the all round loved game has come out for your P.C. Naturally I went straight out and bought it. What a disappointment! I loaded it into my P.C, which was simple enough, but then I had to play. I’m sure we all agree that the best part about the ..." Read review

Advantagesgreat graphics, very very addictive.

DisadvantagesCan 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 play against your friends, people over the internet or simply against your computer. The key to winning this game is the transactions that you do between ..." Read review

Advantagesonline and multi player

" Eat your heart out Waddingtons! Hasbro interactive have released a real cool version of the famous old board game with all the trimmings. No more do you have to chase those dice or notes across the sitting room floor, no more cheating manipulating bankers. The computer game does all the work for you. All the rules and regulations apply just like the old game but with a difference, everything in this game has a life of it’s own. Watch the ..." Read review

Money well spent

AdvantagesCan save unfinished games without packing up

Disadvantages8 people round a pc screen can get alittle cramped

"...am a geat fan of monopoly but living in a smallish house, having the monopoly board and bodies galore strewn accross my floor for hours on end is not alot of fun. The answer is pc monopoly. Its the traditional game but without all the hassel of the board and the pieces and the money all over the place. Its great fun and easy to use and when its time for tea and you haven't finished the game you can simply save it and resume it at a later date. You ..." Read review

The Love Hate Game of Vitual Monopoly.

AdvantagesFun for those whose familys refuse to play the board game anymore because you cheat

DisadvantagesGets repeative and quite annoying

"...be fair if your a monopoly fan that game is pretty ok! Its nothing on the real board game but thats to be expected I find that i end up hating all the other tokens saying and the way they are like the dogs "Smells like home to me" drives you up the wall. Then after that while when its on the shelve you forget the whole hate for the game and subject yourself to playing it again, you end up hating the whole thing but wont dare quite the game ..."
