This game is awesome. It is arguably the best game I've ever bought for the DS. The DS version is perfect, it just has a classic monopoly board and has a very clean look. Even the trading and negotiating menu is very clean. There are no "mini games" but there's no need for them. The customization of this game is awesome! You can turn auctions on/off, customize free parking (taxes y/n to free parking), and make landing on go $400 instead of just $200. The only complaint I have is that the Income Tax takes away $200 and doesn't give the player an option to take the 10% option instead. That is why this version is 99.9% authentic. There isn't any online play, only local play (your friend needs a cartridge too; no DS download); however, you can play w/ multiple people but you have to pass a single DS btwn each person. The sound/music is okay. It never changes and becomes bland, but it isn't that bad. Usually I end up on my bed/couch listening to music/watching tv while playing Monopoly. This is a great game, though when my AI opponents are on "Hard" they tend to get better rolls than me. When AI opponents are on "Normal" I cream them. I like that I can play Monopoly wherever I go (b/c it's on a DS) and I don't have to beg my mom/friends to play with me (b/c of AI's).
