5.0 out of 5 stars Very addictive, yet simple game. December 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
I wanted to hurry and write a review as I know a lot of people are considering purchasing this since the price is temporarily 50% off. I LOVE Monopoly so figured it was a safe bet for me. When you first start it seems a little strange until you get used to the flow of the game, but once you get past that, it is very simple to play. The developer did a nice job of simplifying the controls so that the game moves quickly. I've been playing it for about an hour straight since purchasing it, and really enjoy it so far. As of now, no freeze ups or problems. Great little cheap game -- so far I highly recommend it. It is worth the full price easily, but grab it while it's on sale!

Update: It has been several weeks since I purchased this, and I have played it so often I truly worry I will wear out my D-pad (no problems thus far, just my own paranoia). I still have had no problems with freeze ups. It's obviously not as nice as playing on a game console in color, but it is always my #1 go to game on the kindle for those moments of boredom (think: airport). My biggest complaint would be that it is only enjoyable, for me, to play on the "hard" level, as it is so easy to win on easy or medium. The main reason for this, is that the computer will not mortgage properties to raise money for auctions or to purchase properties on those levels. Ex: If I land on Boardwalk and notice that the computer only has $50, I can "pass" on Boardwalk, and easily win it in the auction for $51. For me, that seems like a setting that should have been removed from the "medium" setting. Final impression is that even at full price, you will more than get your money's worth. As soon as you finish the game, you are thinking "just one more time". I continue to be very impressed at how the developer made the game flow so smoothly on a device (kindle) that is obviously not ideal for gaming.

This is my first game download and I love it! At first I wasn't sure what to do. I am not an instruction reader (drives my husband crazy). I mean this is Monopoly - how hard could it be? To save some learning time I suggest you read the Instructions first, although it is pretty easy to just plug and play.

The action is (of course) a lot slower than a computer game - but for the price, it is a lot of fun. The Kindle graphics are black and white but look very good. Without color, it is harder to distinguish your properties and when someone wants to trade - knowing what they are trading isn't immediately known. You have to 5-way control over the "lettered" card, to view.

I like that you can play with multiple people or against the computer. It even keeps track of stats (only if you and the computer are playing (according to the help)). There are three levels of play, Easy, Medium and Hard. You set this at the set up of the game by moving down to the AI player and clicking right or left. This allows you to add another human player, none, or the three levels of AI play.

You do have to hit the Controller after every move, even the AI. It gets tiresome; I have high hopes of the game improving over time.

The cost, even at full price, is very reasonable! This is a great Game for Kids, but don't expect to get your Kindle back for reading - it's very addictive. So, if you are planning to get a game for your Kindle, and want to build an empire - then take a look at the most popular game of all time - Monopoly.

CAUTION!! This IS a very addictive game. I played for 3 hours straight - I was getting really mad that the AI player never landed on my monopolies and I was determined to beat it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game with room for improvement December 22, 2010
By B. Gul
Verified Purchase
The game is well adapted to Kindle in terms of visuals and gameplay, but there are some flaws that can be easily fixed and I am demanding an update sooner or later. (I wonder if the game is rushed for the holiday season.)

First of all, even the hard AI is not challenging enough. They sometimes offer silly trades by offering just a small amount of cash (10% higher than the original purchase price) and you can also fool the AI easily with cash.
What's worse is that obtaining monopolies is easy too. For some reason, while trading, the AI does not care too much about whether you will be getting a monopoly or not.

In terms of hardware, Kindle can handle a better AI. I remember playing more challenging Monopoly games on my 33 Mhz PC 15 years ago. The AI level on Kindle Monopoly should be able to match at least the AI level of this old Monopoly for Windows.

I also have the Monopoly game on my smartphone and the AI of the smartphone version of the game is much better than the AI on Kindle.

Another issue is controlling the game. Controls are a bit annoying. The full keyboard system for trading is well thought, but other than this, the controls are below average. For instance, you must press the 5-way after every event. What I mean is that the AI turns cannot be automated and everytime an event takes place (rolling dice, purchasing property, paying rent, etc.), you must press 5-way to continue. It gets boring after a while. There should ben an option to skip AI turns without pressing any keys.

There is a similar issue with property management controls. You can buy houses only one-by-one and it is time consuming.
