When I heard that Monopoly was being released on the Playstation 3 console I imagined it would be the coolest most amped up virtual version of the game ever.
I had a version for my desktop computer that I picked up 6 years ago that was awesome, with stunning 3D visuals, and game piece animations that were just adorable. I honestly thought 6 years later that the game for PS3 would be similar to the old school PC version, only better.
Sadly I was disappointed, because the game is very boring, lacks in animation, and is basically the classic board game, only without all of the annoying pieces that you once had to clean up off of the floor.
This PS3 version comes with a standard classical board, as well as some specialty boards that you can unlock. It plays out just like a real life game would, but is boring and adds nothing fun to the game play at all.
There is another version included called The Richest. Here you basically play Monopoly with a new twist where mini games are added. Unfortunately the new twist is twisted, and confusing. The mini games are also played out pretty bad seeing that the controls are so awful on the game.
Overall this is the worst version of Monopoly I have ever played, and it was not at all worth the $40 I spent on it.
