Editors' reviewThis fast-paced version of the classic real-estate-mogul game seems even more addictive than we remember. Monopoly lets you play against up to three computerized or human opponents on your Palm device. Available customization options are not plentiful, but you can at least choose your playing piece and which AI opponents you face off with. Monopoly's colorful board is laid out just like its real-world counterpart, and gameplay proceeds in the same manner with one exception. Although you'll be able to reject or accept trade offers from other players, we could never figure out how to initiate a trade ourselves. That said, the built-in opponents can be quite clever, and it took us a few tries for us to bankrupt them. We would prefer a longer trial period, particularly since the game is so entertaining, but you should still be able to get a clear enough picture whether it's worth purchasing. If you love Monopoly and carry a Palm, we see no reason why this one would disappoint you.
Now you can play the world's most popular property-trading game on your Palm Powered PDA and experience the thrill of owning it all right in the palm of your hand. Buy, sell, rent, and auction property with up to four players. Practice your Monopoly skills at any time by playing against up to three computer opponents with eight identities and playing styles. Or you can mix any combination of real people and computer players in any game. If you have ever played the classic board game then you'll immediately know how to play on your Palm Powered PDA. The computer plays the role of the Banker so it automatically, accurately, and completely scores every player, every play and every game. The Monopoly game for Palm Powered PDAs includes the ability to auction properties, buy/sell houses and hotels, mortgage/unmortgage properties and even set up complex trades with other players.
