I enjoyed this a lot--it's interesting to see what they could do with Monopoly even if it may not have been 100% successful.

And every Monopoly game reminds me of Monty Plays Monopoly on the Apple IIe. It let you pick what random cards Monty got in Chance or Community Chest, and it even let you charge your own rent for properties like Baltic.

Seeing the 40x40 depiction of Monty behind bars was the highlight of that game. It seems like this has quite a bit more in terms of aesthetics without jumping overboard. I'm glad to know about it even if I don't have a PS3.

Great review. I'm really interested in picking this up for me and my sister to play.

I loved the original SNES Monopoly. That was a good hook for the review.

Thanks for the feedback, guys! Honestly, I wasn't expecting much in the way of comments but this was a game I definitely wanted to play and review, so I'm glad that it seems to have covered everything it should have while (hopefully) making for a reasonably interesting read.
