Monopoly Streets (Wii)

 

For the greater part of a century, Monopoly has done just fine for itself as a game of abstractions, skillfully avoiding any questions of how a thimble and a howitzer can lead to rubbing shoulders with John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie. Even its...

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

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

Fix the 10 for 11

Lots of fun

Consumer review by:

Very poor quality game

 

1. Inconsistent with the actual board game. Luxury Tax is 100 dollars instead of 75. The chance and community chest cards are not the same as the actual board game, for example, "It's your birthday. Collect $10 from each player." 2. Several times the...

Monopoly is one of my favorite board games of all time, even with the flaws I'm mentioning it still is a fun game

Inconsistent with actual board game ; Slow game play ; Difficult operation
