Flawed but good
I love MONOPOLY so I play this game a lot and enjoy it but it does have a few quirks that make it less fun than it could be. The main problem is the animations that to make the game take forever to play. I really wish there was an option to turn these off. Not only do they take a long time but the motion can be nausea inducing.
If you understand basic strategy of the game the AI is not very challenging even on the hardest setting. I tend to win 2/3rds of the time against 2 opponents at the highest setting. It amazes me the other reviewers claim the AI is cheating. It definitely is not. The die rolls are clearly random. Don't blame them for when you lose.
The bottom line is that if you like the board game you'll like this app. It includes many options for house rules if you play that way. So download it and enjoy.
Really needs an online mode you can play one turn at a time, the way Words with Friends works. It is not possible to offer a property trade in lieu of rent (collecting player must have enough cash on hand to trade, so you can give it back to them as rent). AI trade evaluation is crap, which leads to ridiculous/cheating trades between AI. Otherwise decent app. Minor complaints, when bidding on a property, it forces you to mortgage before bidding, those mortgages are not canceled if you lose the bid. The interface for mortgaging or building houses makes you scroll through every property on the board, it should skip groups you don't own or don't have a monopoly of. Should add a quick dice roll option, even after turning off shake to roll, the animation is still slow.
There are some major issues with this game. To begin, difficulty level should be based on skill of the computer increasing not changes in the probability of the dice rolls. For example, if you set the game to difficult, the computer doesn't get better at trading or property strategy; however, the dice roll more in their favor. It's a guarantee that you will land on the computer players' property with a hotel EVERY time and they will always land on the community chest or chance in between your properties. There should always be a 1 out of 12 chance that any given number can be rolled at any given time, regardless of difficulty level. This is not the case in this game. If I sit down for a game of black jack, the game should be more or less difficult depending on the skill of my opponent, not whether they stack the deck or not. This is a terrible app and a waste of time.
