What do you get when you cross Atlantic City, Park Place and Baltic Avenue? You get the world's most popular board game. In Hasbro Interactive's Monopoly for the PC, fully animated tokens respond to dice rolls as they hop, skip and race around the board.
With all new graphics and animation over the first Monopoly title, this version lets you play against the computer or have fun with up to six human players. You can even challenge yourself with others over the Internet using Microsoft's MSN Gaming Zone.
The classic board is alive and well in Monopoly as is the entirely revamped 3D board with the ability to customize your very own. Use the provided clip art or your own images to create a town or theme the whole family can enjoy. Or select from ten different city versions included in the game and play using their familiar landmarks! Have fun landing on: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Washington D.C. You can also get right into the game by enabling the Quick Game rules.
Original music scores and realistic sound effects keep the game moving and add detail to the 3D animated tokens. And what about real estate, you ask? Buy, trade and sell properties in a whole new dimension. Simple click and drag controls let you manage your money in a realistic fashion. Go ahead and mortgage that house. Better yet, buy it if you can afford it. Become the winner when you're the richest player left standing!
Custom options allow you to set the number of houses, hotels, Free Parking Jackpot amount, initial cash, salary for passing GO, income tax rate, income tax amount and even luxury tax. Set the Auction Time Delay where Mr. Monopoly waits for further bids before saying "Going once..." Collect double money for landing on GO. Whatever you do, witness it all in 3D animated glory with Monopoly for Windows 95 and Windows 98. Just don't forget to pay the rent! ~ Cal Nguyen, All Game Guide
