Monopoly Here and Now: The World Edition
This is one very addictive game. The turns go fairly quick, the game pieces, background, and different boards look excellent, and unlocking the different boards is fun. My girlfriend and I have been playing this game almost non-stop since it's release. I never really liked Monopoly the board game. I always thought the games were too long. That hasn't been a problem with this video game. Games can be played in 10 minutes. Games can also last for a couple hours. Which, in my opinion, is a great thing. A friend of mine doesn't enjoy this title because she says the free PC version is better. I personally have never played the free version. But if you're a fan of Monopoly, or you are looking for a family oriented game, this is a definite must buy in the "games for the family" category.
This game is addicting and is LOADS of fun. The board is a little hard to see but, it is a blast! It is a little pricey, and it seems like the dumb computer cheats! Also even though it tells you can play in 30 min, it will most likely take as long as it would if you were playing the board game with all of the trading and waiting for all of the other people to finish their turns (for us it takes 2 hrs)! The graphics are STUNNING if you have an Hd tv with hdmi. And the sound is all right. You have to turn the vol. up pretty high to hear the "Money Man" talk. The interface is a little hard to control but it is ok. I would recommend being over 5 to play this because as I said it is a little hard to control. In conclusion, this game is challenging, great for families, and loads of FUN!
