Description official descriptions

From Sculptured Software comes an adaptation of the classic board game Monopoly for the dominating console systems of the early 90s (later also ported to Game Boy Color).

The game can be played by up to eight players (only four in the Game Boy versions). Any number of positions can be taken over by computer opponents. The game comes with eight different opponents, which are selected from a portrait gallery (8- and 16-bit versions feature different names and portraits).

It is possible to set up a time limit for a game, and also to customize the game. Amount of starting money, owned properties, houses and hotels can be set for any player before starting. The game also comes with a number of preset scenarios with varied starting parameters. The 8-bit versions have eight scenarios, the 16-bit versions add another four. The Game Boy versions also feature the scenarios, but don't have the customization option.

During gameplay, the board is seen from the top. Moving tokens are displayed in a special animation in the center of the board, as is a hand throwing the dice. Auctions and trades take place on special screens, with the 16-bit versions being more elaborately animated and illustrated.

A good game, if you liked the board game you'll love the video game!

The Good
It's just as fun as the board game plus you can play with up to seven other people, who can be friend's (you'll have to share the controller) or Computerizer's. It's easy to learn how to play and it's fun.

The Bad
After playing for a couple month's it gets extremely easy to win and therefor looses it's fun, and you can alter the difficulty setting of the computer player's.

The Bottom Line
A great game for kids, especially if you like the board game, but when you get older it gets to easy.
