Rip off of the classic board game

Isn't it more fun to play on the classic board game instead of playing it on a confusing video game. Imagine yourself as an adult. Where you need to make money and use it wisely, just like in this game, Monopoly. Monopoly is the best long lasting fun board game in the world because it is fun, it is really popular, and there are many editions to play. This game was invented in 1904 and it still exists right now. Monopoly is the fun long lasting board game of the century(and the one before). But one thing might be that some people think it lasts tooooooooo long, and before the game ends, they just quit. Then you just sit there, staring out in the blank. There must be a game, or something you’ll like about monopoly because there are way too many editions you can ever count. They have your favorite video games like: Fortnite, Super Mario, or Legends of Zelda. Or they have the Disney characters that you like, Mickey Mouse, or villains. But if you’re an adult or teenager and you say something like, “ No, ppppbpbpbb, it's too childish.”, well, Monopoly solves the problem. Unlike other board games, Monopoly uses your brain a lot because it's all about making decisions. So no matter what, you should buy the Monopoly game in any editions you want. Why don’t you go find a toy store and buy a Monopoly board game to play with your family?

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

If you're a fan of the board game, you will love Monopoly Streets. The three-dimensional graphics are a hoot (watching an avatar hop around in the giant shoe, say, or seeing one surf along on the iron); and Mr. Monopoly makes for a very charming and likable host. The many, many ways in which you can customize your game mean that pretty much anyone (even those people who've always hated Monopoly because it's too long) can find a way to play that's appealing to them. One highlight is the property auctions, during which all four players frantically raise and lower their bids until time is called and the highest bidder gets the deed. There's an entire strategy to those auctions alone, in which you may not actually want to spend your money on a property, but force your opponents to overspend instead. Monopoly, as a board game, always flirts with becoming dull or repetitive, but in this video game format, it feels fresh and exciting.

Online interaction: Online play is available on all three consoles. With PS3 or Xbox 360, unmoderated voice chat can be a part of that online experience, so that kids could hear things they shouldn't. Parents don't have to allow this option and can disable it by using parental controls on their consoles.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
