    "Fun, HOWEVER...."

    March 17, 2012  |   By Syrinx77

    Pros

    Very addictive & fun
    nice graphics

    Cons

    The program *Totally* cheats.

    The die rolls are decidedly NOT random the way they should be. So it's fun...when it doesn't feel fixed. (& it often does) For ex., the computer will roll its turn, buy a property & 8x outta 10, you'll inevitably land on *that* spot on your very next turn.
    Also, you can count on the program often getting the last property of a color when it already owns 2 of them.
    Another thing, if the computer ever offers a trade, DON'T accept. Ever. You're being set up for it to *definitely* get all 3 properties. Oh & if/when *you* get a monopoly, be prepared for the computer to *not* land on your houses for a few turns.

    So the bottomline- yes, this game can be fun, but only when it doesn't feel fixed. They Really ought to improve it by making the die rolls truly random. Play at your hair's own risk. You may wanna pull it all out...
