Monopoly Wii Review

 

The Wii has gained a reputation for family-friendly games, and a board game conversion like Monopoly should be a banker for a company like EA at Christmas. The most important aspects have to be the ease of use, the extra features added and the...

Monopoly

 

If the idea of playing a board game seems too last century this virtual edition might be worth a look, but be aware that this is only ever going to be second best.

Plays a good game of Monopoly ; Nicely presented

Some menus are cluttered and hard to read ; Not so easy to play with unorthodox rules

EA has managed to produce a competent virtual version of the classic board game, but we still can't recommend it over buying the real thing. You get numerous boards and the questionable Get Rich Quick mode, but you lose so much by not being able to...

Monopoly

 

The world seems to be going crazy about revamping old board games at the moment. Michael Bay is making Battleship into a movie (Pearl Harbour 2? That's just sadistic), Pirates helmer Gore Verbinski is doing Cluedo and Sir Ridley Scott himself is taking...

Up to four players using one or multiple remotes ; Plenty of rules to change to your liking ; The game functions very well ; Raise your Wii remote to bet during auctions ; A couple of nice updates like the World board ; Can still play as the car, hat,...

You constantly feel rushed ; The Richest Edition is too complex and dull ; Single players can't skip the computer's turn ; Rules can be changed but not broken ; No internet options or competitions ; Can't silence the background music or host ; You...

Still, if you have the choice, it's better just to buy the real board game.

Monopoly Review - Wii

 

monopoly review: Wii Monopoly proves that sometimes, technology doesn't improve a game.

You can't lose the pieces, Family members can't cheat

Richest Minigames are poor, Richest Mode itself is so random as to be worthless, Family members can't cheat

Wii Monopoly proves that sometimes, technology doesn't improve a game.

Monopoly Streets

 

Proceed to go and collect $200.

Plenty of modes ; Colorful and detailed boards ; Local multiplayer ; Great soundtrack

Wii version gives you no benefits for a huge price premium over other platforms ; Character voices can be annoying

I didn't know if I should pick this one up or not, seeing that my auntie already owns the first Monopoly game on Wii. I guess I'll skip this one. Thank you for the review, Matt.

Monopoly Streets Review

 

Monopoly Streets admirably brings the famed board game to life, but annoying characters and poor pacing keep this outing from rolling doubles.

Seeing your property develop is a nice visual treat ; Entertaining minigame auctions ; Plenty of options for custom play ; Classic boards available ; You can play as your Mii

Some character voices quickly grow annoying ; Poor pacing ; Only includes two cities

Of course, the concept's main attraction is the opportunity to see your properties develop. Upon purchase, each property features a quaintly decorated garden until you can afford to buy houses and hotels, and these, in turn, are built according to the...

Monopoly (2008) on Wii

 

This party-remix mode may seem confusing to begin with, and it can be -- since it throws almost all of the standard Monopoly rules out and just retains the barest foundations of the game. But after a few rounds, its appeal reveals itself and its fun...

Take a long ride on the Short Line.
