An actual review
I'm going to write something besides "it doesn't have multiplayer." It is a bit disconcerting that this game has no online capabilities, but that is not the reason I bought it. Even more disconcerting is the number of people complaining about this. I bought the game because I wanted something other than the Pogo game. Someone in one of the posts mentioned the Westwood game, this one reminds me a bit of that. I enjoy the animations and the game play. Besides the fact that it is only 4 players and the only multiplayer is hotseat, I think it is a very well done game. I haven't tried it in full screen mode (which I've heard has issues) and only played 1 game on easy (which was obsurdly so) but rather enjoyed the experience. If I have issues with the game, I will post them in a calm fashion (rather than the whining I see a lot of on here), but over all, I'm satisfied with my purchase so far.

I agree... The game have good graphics and the animations are nice. The gameplay also feel good and make you want to play the game for a long time. As everyone know with monopoly when you loose it is not so fun, but I can say that the AI play rather good and do actual feel like a human player.. Sometimes they are very protectie and do not want to sell a property to you, other times they like to trade ect.. all in all the game monopoly is good and the AI play both good and bad and even make "mistakes".. I did make the game work and played it in window mode, but after switching to fullscreen mode im unable to start the game anymore since it freeze the computer.. To make a long story short I have uninstalled the game since I cannot fix the issue ( not even with an uninstall/reinstall ).. Also there was some problems ingame with the buttoms stop working once in a while, then I click the deskop and return to the game that fixed the problem every time, sometimes 4-5 turns in a row.. :-( But nice game, just a shame it do not work properbly. I hope a fix will come arround soon.

I love it, I don't however have this on steam, Ihave a Retail version I bought which I use for single player abd use pogo for MP... however I do prefer the single player for it's graphics and gameplay is a lot smoother compared to the pogo, but ya... I think this is an awesome buy for someone who doesn't already own a copy and wants to play alone,

your "actual review" consists entirely of two fragmented sentences.

it seems the real point of your post was to complain about the complainers.

can you guess what that says about yourself?...

Even though I am better in English than most of the posters on message boards, I am not perfect.

My original post may have complained about the complainers, but the real point was to emphasize the fact that I am satisfied with my purchase where, it seems, most are not.

ok, the first time i played, it didn't have a pop up help (which might have made starting a bit easier). Now, the help is popping up on nearly every turn and i can't find a way to get rid of it. This is really annoying.

There is an option to turn off help pop ups when setting up a new game (Called tuturials, selct off I think)
