Dragon (Apr, 1990)
You can play either the British or American version of the game, including the extra armies cards. Dice rolls are fair, and the fun is tremendous. If you are looking for one of the best board-game conversions, look at Risk.
Zero (Mar, 1990)
Although the computer game offers little that you can't already find on the board game, this is undoubtedly an excellent conversion, capturing the spirit and the strategy of the original.
The Games Machine (UK) (Apr, 1990)
Both CGA and EGA versions appear in one package, and like the ST game the real appeal of this version is the ability to stomp over your friends and still buy them a drink afterwards. A great board game has been turned into a first rate computer program - again!
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Mar, 1990)
Hier müssen die Programmierer gelobt werden. Durch und durch ist ihnen diese Umsetzung des Brettspielklassikers gelungen, das seit jeher mein Lieblingsspiel ist und das ich nun auch vordem heimischen Bildschirm allein spielen kann.
Computer Gaming World (CGW) (Mar, 1990)
Each of these products is a faithful translation of its boardgame ancestor. Virgin MasterTronic has improved with each new release. However, since these products generally sell for under $20.00 in their boardgame incarnations, the question remains, "Does having the computer version with its potential in-house opponents provide sufficient justification for doubling the cost? That is, of course, a personal decision the consumer will have to make on his own. In this reviewer's opinion, Scrabble is the weakest product (given cumbersome play and graphics), while Risk and Clue: Master Detective are the strongest. Monopoly has been released in numerous shareware and public domain versions which thereby weaken its standing. Assuming one has sufficient human opponents, the boardgame versions still offer better play value. However, the computer versions can supply a modicum of opposition (and you don't have to share your potato chips!).
