Monopoly fans who were disappointed with the earlier release of Monopoly: Here and Now will be very pleased with EA Games' second release of the popular franchise, Monopoly. Unlike the previous release, Monopoly features all of the classical properties that were featured in the original board game such as St. Charles Place, Illinois Avenue and Boardwalk.

The controls for the game are easy to use. To roll the dice the player needs to give their iPhone a quick shake and to buy, sell and trade properties with other players there is an action box displayed at the bottom of the screen which the player can select by touching the icons accordingly.

The visuals for this game are very pleasing and give a good overall fun feel to the game. The 3D animation is smooth and the interface is simple to understand. The sound effects are able to be turned on or off during game play and allows players to have their iTunes music to be played in the background. Multi-player support is also included, players can choose to either verse AI or connect with other players via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The game also has three different difficulty settings to choose from and players are able to save their game at any time.

Monopoly is an exciting adaptation of the original board game which can be enjoyed by players of any age and is a quick and easy alternative for those who don't like wasting time setting up the board or for those who want something fun to play while they're on the go.
