    How do you make a great game even better? Simple! Bring together some of best artists, musicians, and programmers to re-create Parker Brother's Monopoly game in fully animated 3D!

    Westwood Studios and Parker Brothers have teamed up to enhance the best selling game ever for the PC. If you think this is the game your parents played, think again....

    Westwood Studios' animators have worked for over a year to compile more than twelve thousand frames of smooth 3D animation for Monopoly CD-ROM. Players will instantly notice that each character comes to life with it's own personality as they sail, drive, and hop around the multi-colored properties of Atlantic City. Watch demolition crews blow up your houses and build hotels, or simply get away from it all and take a ride on the Reading Railroad. It's all there, it's all animated, and it's more good-natured fun than you've had on your computer in a long time...

    Yet, what's more fun than forcing your best friend into bankruptcy? Well, for starters how about forcing SIX of your friends into bankruptcy! Remember that kid that took your lunch money in the fourth grade? How about the dweeb that married your sister? Better yet, use your suave negotiation skills to throw your business partners into the poorhouse while the boss is away! With Monopoly CD, you'll be able to play up to six people over a computer network, or compete against rivals half-way around the world with built-in Internet support. French, German, and United Kingdom versions of the game are fully compatible, so you can use either pounds, francs or dollars as you purchase Oxford Street or force your opponent to mortgage Parkstrasse. With Internet capability, fame and fortune can now be yours as you capitalize on the rest of the civilized world. Plus, lots of player choices and game variations are available to allow you to keep friends and relatives on thier toes.

    Can't find someone to play? Then add a few computer opponents to negotiate with. Our programming & design team has worked hard to allow the computer to exact it's revenge for every bit of user abuse you've given it over the past few years. Believe us, from now on you'll think twice about reformatting that hard drive.

    And as with all our previous games, our audio department has worked overtime to make the soundtrack for Monopoly CD one of the best ever. Go back to the 1930's with a cool jazz/ragtime beat, or decide on something a little more modern. All the while, you'll be delighted with the array of neat sound effects we've cooked up for you.

    Amazing graphics, Internet and network support for multiplayer games, an enhanced artificial intelligence, and a cool soundtrack you'll want to hear over and over again make Monopoly CD-ROM one of the most awaited games ever!

    Available now from Westwood Studios and Parker Brothers.
