Thanks for reading my review of Monopoly for PlayStation!  --kramer4077

Overall:  6/10--This is the first time I've played the PlayStation version of Monopoly.  I've previously played it in real life, as well as on Nintendo and Nintendo 64.  The game was going fine until two issues really bothered me so much to the point that I needed to end the game.  Don't get me wrong, this isn't a horrible version by any means.  But there were some things that should have been fixed in the game.  The first issue I'm talking about is that the computer opponents would ask you to trade...they wanted to trade a lot...they wanted to trade on EVERY turn!  No, I didn't want to sell Virginia Avenue for $64, and I certainly didn't want to sell it for $67, as if adding $3 would make me want to sell it.  As if that didn't bother me enough...there was no way to skip through animations or make your token advance quicker.  So when you rolled a 12 you had to painfully watch your token advance 12 squares.  There was also no way to make the computer players go quicker so you didn't have to watch their turn.  You had to watch every time they rolled and moved around the game board...I nearly fell asleep!  In other game systems there is a way to skip through or turn off some of the animations.

Graphics:  6/10--The graphics were pretty decent.  It was nice that the board would rotate as your token would advance around it, making it easy to see.  The game didn't zoom in or do anything too annoying that some other versions of Monopoly do throughout the game.  The animations were kind of cute at times, especially the train properties animation.

Sound:  6/10--There was some background music and sound effects to go with the dice and the tokens.  The race car went zoom, and the ship made a boat whistle sound...those kinds of normal sounds.

Addictiveness:  3/10--I probably won't play this PlayStation version again because of the issues I've stated above.  I didn't like when the computer asked to trade with me on every turn and that there was no option to skip through animations or the computer's turn.  Some people might not mind the issues I've discussed and they might enjoy this version.  It is much better than playing in real life.  You don't have to get the real board, money, and pieces out--it's all digital in the video game!

Story:  There is no story; it's just the game of Monopoly.

Depth:  6/10--It is the game of Monopoly, just the straight-forward traditional game with no options to choose from.  There was no Free Parking money option or $400 when you land on GO.  I've seen some of those options in other versions, and it would have made this game more interesting to throw some of those in there.

Difficulty:  5/10--If you know how to play the game of Monopoly in real life or have played it on other systems, this version should be easy for you. If you haven't played Monopoly before, then I suggest finding the rules online before trying to play this since there is no help option in the game.

Nice review, short and sweet. I can only play monopoly with others, though, not computers. It's not the same, ya know?

Awesome-Kid : For sure, and it's nice playing with real people on the video game so then no one has to be in charge of the money.  The video game does all the banking for you!  I highly recommend the N64 version--it's really a fun one!

So I'm guessing the computer doesn't make monopoly greater and playing with real people will be better. Anyway this is a good review yet your overall score (5) didn't match the score you put in (which was a 6). Besides that you did a fantastic job on making this review and I hope to see more from you in the future!
