I enjoyed monopoly on the ps2 but was let down by the previous ps3 monopoly game. So my expectations were not too great with this new 'Streets' version of the classic game. But thankfully i was pleasantly surprised with a well presented and addictive game that surpasses my favourite ps2 version!
Graphically this is perfect, colourful, bright and clear. You now have a 3D city to play around with real houses and hotels being built in seconds as proper 3D models of houses and hotels. Sound is also excellent, although the constant ramblings and oh's and uh? from the character players can annoy after a while, but they can be turned down to leave the sound effects and music.
This is also a game that will soak up the hours very easily, with friends or against the AI players. Many boards to unlock and extra playing peices and boards can be downloaded from the playstation network.
An excellent game that has converted perfectly from the original board game with the advantage of never losing peices or having anyone cheating on you. Lots of bonus features including customising the rules, fantastic virtual 3D monopoly world and online games that all make this the superior option to the original board game version. A game that will not ruin your social life or have you screaming with frustration, instead it is a game to enjoy for any member of the family, a joy to play and highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice twist on a classic game 17 Dec. 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, I've had this game for 3-4 days now and on the whole I have really enjoyed it. The gameplay is interactive and the ability to play online gives the game quite a bit of longevity. I have found that if you are dominating a game then some human players leave (with their tale between their legs!) but these players are replced by AI so you can still carry on a get your win which still counts for the rankings.
I would warn you now that some of the characters will grind on you fairly early on but thankfully you are able to tweak it so that they become silent (or quieter). One issue that I don't like is that you can only see the board in the traditional format on your go and even then the time you can look at it is time limited. They should have made it so that you can flick between the 3D animated board to the traditional board by pressing L2 or something but alas, you can't :-(
Don't let that put you off though, it is still good fun and will easily take up an evening without you realising even thoug the games do flow as all rent/taxes/fines etc are taken automatically without the need to scramble around for change from the bank! I've only played single player and on-line so far but this could be really good with friends and family as well.
I have noticed that even though the game has only been out a few weeks that a few things are popping up in the Playstation store which I'm not keen on (Championship board for £5.49 anyone?)
ps. I know a few people out there like collecting trophies... this is a give away for trophies!! I have played for 3 nights (about 6 hours) and have 23 trophies already! An easy platinum by the looks of it!!
See you on the board!
Happy gaming!

4.0 out of 5 stars Money, money, money 10 Nov. 2011

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I collect Monopoly boards, and while not possessing much skill at winning the game (it IS largely based on chance) I do like to get through the various different themes out there. I tend to cheat too, mainly by making-up 'rules' and nicking from the bank when no one is looking (I always had three $500 bills!). Cheating, however, is not an option in this video game from Electronic Arts, so you've got to play legit.

It's a BRILLIANT spin on the Monopoly design, with some new gameplay dynamics to really make it go fast. The boards available are colorful and pretty, and the music is frequently quite pleasant too. I just wish that the characters weren't so annoying. The game comes with 41 trophies, and you'll need to play online for a bit to get the Platinum, but this is where I think the game can achieve some real longevity. After a while, online play becomes impossible for games if they are not constantly updated. But with so many franchises licensed for Monopoly boards out there (the Simpsons, Garfield, Star Trek) it would make for some wonderful downloadable content.

Don't listen to the bad reviews, this is well worth the money, and might even have gotten a higher rating, possibly even better than the real thing, if it were not for those deeply annoying characters.

I must admit I LOVE Monopoly. And for a long time I wanted to purchase the Monopoly Streets game. BUT after reading all of those reviews who stated different DONT'S of this game, I was unsure and hesitating whether or not buy the game. But my partner told me definitely to do so. And I really have to say, this is my absolutely NO1!

1. Reviews telling you that you can't play other than with 4 characters are WRONG! You can play by yourself + 1 virtual (pc) character. Simply just select player options as follows: 1. player - hosting player (or something just like that); 2. player "virtual - easy, medium or hard"; 3. player HUMAN; 4. player HUMAN. Then you simply select your character, than press X and THERE YOU GOOOO! You are playing with just 1 automatic character.

2. Reviews telling you that you can't play online without a inviting a friend are WRONG! I just played a custom play with another online player who I never heard of! Just search for available matches.

3. The only disappointing thing about this game are online players leaving the game when you're about to win!!!!!!!!! I really hate those jackasses :)

All in one - if you are a lover of the Monopoly game, this one will make it so much more fun (due to the 3D mode and lovely characters - one of them looks like Victoria Beckham BTW lol). I would recommend this game 100%. Hope you will too. Wish you at least so much fun I am having. ;)
