Review from Jake Erdman
Duplicated If you have monopoly pre installed on your phone and purchase the app from the market the game will be duplicated on your phone. Furthermore, the pre installed app costs more. Lastly, when emailing ea games, do not email help@EAMobile.com, all you get is a worthless auto reply. I will not purchase another ea game again.
A fun time waster, buggy though. Game plays fine on my RAZR M. Just about a perfect replication of the classic boardgame. My only real complaint is that it doesn't keep saved games. I saved after two hours of playing. Had beat all but one AI opponents and when I started the game back up just ten minutes later it asked me to choose my preferred language as if it was the first time starting the ap and my saved game was gone.
Great App, Few Issues. Not sure why anyone is saying it's rigged, I'm having a blast playing this, and getting good at winning. But I do wish I could save my house rules and disable that stupid tutorial. There is no way to turn it off, either, if you accidentally enable it at the start. Some other player color options would be nice too. But I love this app and am very happy to have spent a dollar on it. A dollar is nothing compared to buying the actual board game.
Not rigged- I downloaded this last night. I'm not an "expert" Monopoly player but I do know how to play quite well. The game is supposed to be challenging, like a real game. I played it 6 times on medium and beat it every time. If it was actually rigged, that wouldn't happen. My only complaint is that the touch controls are way off during trades, building houses, and entering dollar amounts. I also wish there was a way to un-animate gameplay to make it faster.
First off if this game would actually let me unmortgage property that would be a great start. Secondly the game doesn't fit my screen so the controls are hard to manage. Lastly the skill settings are highly inaccurate. On "easy" I sat in jail half of the game letting the computer character buy up property and land on community chest every other roll. Plus when I did pass go, I inevitably landed on income tax, over half of the time. Switched to medium and won. That makes no sense at all.
Rigged Monopoly is a great game....unfortunately this app isn't. The AI is completely rigged. I owned an entire side of the board and the computer landed on chance three times in a row. Also the number of times you will land on the one property with a hotel is staggering. Keep in mind this is on very easy. This game will make you want to throw your phone through the wall. The odds of the computer being this "lucky" are astronomical small, and yet turn after turn and game after game, that is exactly what happens.
Great app Alot of people hammered this app in there review, but since its now only 99 cents, I thought I would try it since I enjoy the board game. Its great. I have noticed no bias in the gameplay at all, I have noticed no lag or slowdown at all, and its not crashed once. I am using a samsung tab 3. This is worth 99 cents any day of the week, and I have no idea why there are so many negitive reviews. The graphics are nice and the game moves at a good pace. Overall the app has exceeded my expectations.
