Reviews:

Computer Gaming World, February 1996

"This new version of Monopoly, however, does the old American boardgame classic proud. Some of the computer opponents are annoyingly unpredicatble. They can even be made to mimic human behavior patterns, from how it rates property, to how often it offers to trade, to how much money it keeps in the till.

"The program installs and runs beautifully from a Windows 95 operating system. Virtually every common variation on the rules can be used, including impossibilities like unlimited houses and hotels. The on-line Help is very throrough and covers virtually every aspect of the game, including the details of creating your own AIs and using the game on the Internet.

"Overall, Monopoly CD-ROM is a big improvement over previous versions, and is definitely the best available version of the game for your PC. It offers several hours of light entertaiment to the solitary gamer and a welcome opportunity for social gamers."

CD-ROM Today, December 1995

"If there's a board game that's better known and loved than Monopoly, I can't think of it. Parker Brothers' game of wheeling and dealing - with its plastic hotels, funny money, and little metal pieces - is an American institution. Bringing such a game to computer isn't really all that hard; the challenge is to create something beyond a mere flat, two dimensional representation of a game board. It's a trick that Monopoly CD-ROM has pulled off in spades."

"Animation, music, and Internet hooks may be so much flash, but at its heart this is an engaging and well-done computerization of an immensely popular board game. By providing real flexibility in game-play options and the power to play against a wide variety of computer and living opponents, Westwood has brought Monopoly to the PC with a bang."
