I agree with cleone333. It's like the game knows what it takes to get passed the walls that you create. And yet it buys up into every piece of the board while you land on every one of its properties and it lands on one of your own. The algorithm is set to handicap you when you decline trades with the AI. Do better people. It's not realistic.... it's an antagonist.
It's fun until the game cheats you. 3/5
It's everything you would expect from a Monopoly game however, there's a bug. The game doesn't know how to count! I would be on one of the four railroads, then I shake the dice and I get ten, but instead of going over ten spaces, I go over nine, causing me to land on a AI's property with a hotel. Therefore, screwing me over. There has been similar cases of this happening but anyway. If this bug is fixed, I'll change my rating to five stars.
Love it! 5/5
By Ricky la
I read the reviews first before buying. Some people complained that they never win. Well, I decided to buy and I've won 2 out of the 4 games I've played so far. You just have to know how to play they game. I love it and definitely recommend it.
Fun game 5/5
Game started off with a win on the first game on medium, followed by a win on hard after three more goes. It's fun, and if you play smart, you'll do well.
Badly rigged 1/5
A played a game on my ds a long time ago and it was the same way but this is so much worse. After 3 minutes of playing I could tell that the dice were rigged and weren't truly random. Very disappointed and wish I had spent my money elsewhere. Otherwise I find the controls somewhat difficult to use. Particularly the manage properties. As for further advise I think it would be nice if they added different boards from different themes or made them downloadable
Good game, definitely rigged 3/5
This game is most probably rigged. The rolls are not random whatsoever.
Dont waste time! 1/5
By The Commander 127
Nothing random about dice. It picks who will win and they never land on ur properties until it is too late. Idiot developers need to make it truly random.
Other reviews are bogus 5/5
I have had this game on my phone forever and decided to write a review after seeing how stupid the reviews are for this game... The dice are not rigged... I have won more than 50% of my games on hard difficulty vs 4 AI. Actually, if I had 1 complaint for this game is that it's too easy. The AI trade as though monopolies don't exist. I would go as far as to say this was the single best game purchase I have ever made. Other games have come and gone but this one is ALWAYS on my phone.
True true 3/5
As every person who plays it, game is rigged, Fridge you monopoly designers, but it's a good game to play.
I can't seem to win. I've changed the difficulty to 1 every single time and the computer still seems to beat me every time.
In fact I owned every single property on the board except for 6 of them and yet the computer NEVER landed on them but I landed on all of theirs. Hmmmm?
Visually appealing, won two games but I've played about 10 so far and the patterns become painfully obvious. If the games decides your going to lose then your going to lose.
If your first roll lands you on income tax, just go ahead and restart because it's a guarantee you'll land on it every single time.
as for the computers? well I owned the orange set, had a hotel on each of them and literally they got passed by, and I counted, 13 times in a row until I became in financial debt, had to sell sell sell, when there was one house on it THEN they land on it but it doesn't matter because yellow and green have become death ally.
oh and even if I managed to get lucky and by pass all that, that right you guessed it, income tax, you just whittled down to nothing.
All games played on level 2 difficulty
By Ned nelly belly
I can't even star the game!
Stupid game 1/5
By Person who does work
Sucked terribly I would never play again 🖕you really need to delete this game
The AI cheats horribly. The AI consistently rolls high numbers on the dice, resulting in more trips passed go, and consistently rolls doubles. EA really messed up here. I want my money back!
I don't get all the complaints. I win on this game all the time. Learn how to make deals people. LoL
You can't win 1/5
For some reason, this game is literally designed for you to lose. I had a whole side of the board covered in hotels that 3 computers rarely landed in. All of a sudden, they'd be rolling 10s and 12s when they got near me. Even when I was close to winning, the computers would only bankrupt each other and acquire each other's properties so that one would end up owning everything and beating me anyway. I can tell when it's going to give me three doubles in a row for the purpose of sending me to jail or it will just give me doubles so that I can land in the computers hotel. Idk who designed this but it's not random. Horrible game.
A few flaws 2/5
Pretty good app but you can't leave the game to check text or whatever, even if you hit pause. Was playing with my daughter and during her turn I was going to answer a couple of texts, paused it and got booted from the game.
C'mon now. This game can last hours!
Beautiful Display, Moronic AI 2/5
I teach mathematics and with this subject, I teach probability. The odds of any given circumstance may be astronomical, but it's never impossible in this game. However, too many of specific occurrences, namely landing on Income Tax multiple times in succession and repeatedly going to jail stretch the limits of probability. In many games, it appears my token is magnetically attracted to the fourth spot after GO. Three, four, and five successive lands on Income Tax over a large number of games (at least 120) make the claim of random rolls hollow.
Trading with the AI in a two-player game guarantees a human win. The AI has no clue what a good trade is. It will accept a second utility card along with cash in exchange for two other cards which gives me two complete sets. It indeed overvalues the Utilities. Secondly, I let a game go on and build-up large amounts of cash to see how much that affects trades. The AI refused an M8,000 trade for a worthless card but accepted the trade for the same card with little cash and another worthless card. It is so eager to sell itself into losing that anyone not able to participate in trading that turn gets screwed out of a game for the same reason.
But it is a visually appealing game. And on the iPhone screen, this says a lot. Just wish it wasn't like playing with five year olds.
The odds of winning are greatly reduced however because the same types of trades are main between the other AI players, which
Very first turn: Land on Income Tax. There goes $200. Later on: Pass Go. Land on Income Tax. Finally made my way around again. Pass Go. Land on Income Tax. Once again: Pass Go. Didn't land on Income Tax! Landed on the Railroad... owned by the AI. $200 gone again. I think this is why people say it's rigged...
Game is rigged 2/5
By MU Dude 2015
It is incredible how the other AIs land on the space before your monopoly 15 times in a row. Ironically I didn't own that spot. I red some of the reviews before and it is just not possible. Not worth playing.
Great Game, hard to play colorblind 3/5
Hasbro, PLEASE change the color scheme a little bit. The blue and purple look IDENTICAL to me and I can never differentiate, making it so hard for me to play.
The other colors (I don't know what they are) are at least distinguishable from each other. I know other color blind people may have it worse than me, but the blue and purple look so much alike it's ruining my experience. Please update the game and make the blue like white or black or brown or SOMETHING.
When playing wirelessly wether Bluetooth or wifi and the screen goes off the game gets disconnected and you can't reconnect no matter what. This a must fix. Also Bluetooth only allows one phone to connect. Why not have it where we connect with a code to the host and we play without the need of wifi or Bluetooth.
Bad ai 1/5
Unbalanced AI. Stacked waaay to far in computers favor.
GAME RIGGED? 2/5
By I like UNO
I now how to play monopoly, and I started by putting all AI to level 1. It turned out great until the end! It was a one versus one with me having all but the green properties. And every lap around the board I would ALWAYS LAND ON HIS HOTELS on green properties! RIGEED
fun but... 3/5
i cant connect with my buddies via bluetooth
Good but not great 3/5
By Tick time for
I love it. I really do. The only problem is I'm getting bored of only having three difficulty levels for Al. All I want is to be able to play with other people in the game. I try but for some reason it never finds anybody locally. Please, please, please fix this!!!!
Great with exception 5/5
I am a fan of Monopoly. I don't travel without the board game. I love it! I'm stoked to have it on iOS but I feel limited in the challenges I'm given. For example I'm only able to play on a difficulty level of 3 against computers because it's never able to connect locally therefore I'm not able to play against other people. I'm a bully in Monopoly and I wish I could play against other real-life Monopoly bullies so I can see who the real champion is. I'm competitive so computers are starting to bore me. Hopefully you fix that so I can connect globally or something with people and be even more joyful.
The game cheats 3/5
Don't get me wrong, it's a time killer and it's fun to play. It beats playing alone..however it cheats. I tested this theory by buying up most of the board and blocking the computer Al from ever getting a monopoly. As a result Al incurred a great deal if money but couldn't do anything with it. I only offered money in trades for properties so that I could have monopolies and Al couldn't. I won two times after figuring this out. Al had a lot of Monopoly money for a while until every once in a while it landed on my spot and I got a great deal of money from houses and hotels I put on there as my money allowed. I was very poor for the majority of the game. Al cheats. So you have to cheat if you want to win too. Don't take any of the offers it makes and don't trade your properties for anything other than money and you will eventually win.
POS APP 1/5
By Scronald Grimaldi
Rigged and confusing
Computer player unrealistic 3/5
By J Cuff
Rarely ever pay for an app but this seemed reasonable and was rated well. Graphics are cool, game is an easy way to play for a fan of monopoly. Defaults to an auction setting where if someone doesn't buy the property you offer $ for it and goes to highest bidder. Found this slowed down game and computer strategy made little sense. Computer player will offer the worst trades throughout game. C will also accept many cash only for property offers that a regular player would NEVER do. Difficulty level is frustrating because it is clear that the Hard difficulty just makes the dice role unfavorably for you and favorably for them. They should have made his trading strategy better or property acquisition more aggressive rather than tweak the likelihood to land on something. Eh, it's on 99 cents, I feel like I got my money's worth but will likely not play all too much more after the novelty wears off.
ABSOLUTELY RIGGED 1/5
It is INSANE how rigged the dice are...I lost with 6 monopolies when the computer had 1...I understand that sometimes you have bad luck with dice, but there is no way that the computer made it around the board SEVEN TIMES IN A ROW without landing on ANYTHING of mine
3 against 1! 3/5
This game looks good, in the play mechanics are very well thought out.
The problem is that when you play against more than one AI opponent they give each other ridiculous trades that no human in his right mind would ever consider.
(The last game I played one AI player traded the two yellow group properties to complete the monopoly to another AI player for Oriental and the 2nd player did not own any other properties from that group.)
Frustrating adaptation… Even more so if you love the game.
NOTE: on the other hand, if all 3 AI players have missed landing on all six "hotel" properties around free parking for the third time around the board and you're about to land on boardwalk with a hotel for the third consecutive time (or whatever other injustice you think is about to befall you)... BEFORE YOU LAND ON THE PROPERTY you can always hit the home button on your phone...swipe to close the game..."restart" the game and you will be standing happily on boardwalk ready for the next move and still have all your cash.
Great game !!! 5/5
By My back just like me
I'm happy to say I beat the computer so everyone on here rating it bad because they think it's in favor of the computer is incorrect ! The secret is to buy both dark blues (boardwalk and park something I forgot) but the you have to put houses on them and the computer will bye all properties it lands on unless it can't afford them so he will soon lose money and hopefully land on boardwalk and won't be able to pay and he will lose
So UNBELIEVEABLY biased. 1/5
Do not waste your time with this game. You can own almost every property on the board with houses and hotels and the computer will have one group with houses/hotels and he will somehow always "miss" your properties, instead always landing on Chance, CC, Free Parking, etc. Meanwhile, you will ALWAYS land on his, go to jail, or end up paying through Chance or Community Chest. And this was on easy mode! This is the most unfair game I have ever played. So frustrating to have all those things and still end up losing because the computer basically "cheats". Deleted this game. =(
So much fun! 5/5
Was skeptical to get the game after reading people couldn't beat the computer! I play one game with my fiancée and demolished him. Then I played against the computer and it took me a while but I was able to beat the computer on my first try! I love this game so much it's so convenient! Can play with my Fiancée, family, or best friend wherever, whenever!!!
This is for fun 5/5
By Hinata 5
This game is for fun not to be complaining and to in joy I have had this game for a long time on iOS and I never seen any of the issues you all are complaining about the dice are also random not rigged
fun game 5/5
It was one of the best games that i have ever played because whenever i play it, it looks that i play the real game. please put new updates
SO FRUSTRATING 2/5
I have played against the easiest al so so so many times and it is utterly and completely cheating. The die are rigged, and the game plays out so unrealistically. I know how to play monopoly and I am good at it. I have played the actual board game HUNDREDS OF TIMES and the amount of times I have landed on the al's ONE set of properties and the amount of times the al has not landed on my MULTIPLE sets of properties is so unrealistic and frustrating, it's ridiculous. This is not fun anymore.
Doesn't even deserve a negative 5 stars!!!! 1/5
This game totally favors the ai opponent over the player I put my game on easy mode and ever single time I land on chance or community chest I lose money but if the ai lands on the same exact square he gains money and he never lands on my property and I always land on his
This game is horrible
It is the biggest waste of time even the history of apps
Great but.. 4/5
Great game! it is great to play against computers.. however I wish you could play others over wifi from different places!
Dice in favor of computer 1/5
I owned from jail all the way to go to jail and had houses and hotels all through out. Had all the railroads and the utilities and the computer managed to pass through 6 times and never hit more than a utility or railroad. Always landed on chance. Even when he went to jail he would pay to leave, roll a 10 and go to free parking. Then roll an 11 or 12 and pass the rest.. I hit it's green property (his only ones, I had rest but mortgages) 3 times in a row owing him $1400 each time.. causing me to give up after hitting it a 3rd time. The game is fun and all the mechanics are there, but the dice favor the PC so much that it's not fun in the long run.. I have beat them, but I had to get a monopoly very early and just buy out almost the entire board..
Please fix wireless game. I'm trying to play with friends and it keeps staying on the loading screen,also happens to my friends.
Game of the year 2017 5/5
By Jose Ball
This is the best game ever
Strange bug ... only on max difficulty 3/5
It's Monopoly. So yea, there's that.
AI is average, and always bugs you, brokering for strange lopsided trades. But twice now, since I bought the game a few hours ago: I've been playing advanced difficulty, and owned at least one property on each color block. Then the AI asks for a trade, and I deny it. But for some reason, the AI then awards itself with the properties it asked for while giving me nothing in return.
Deny the AI a trade when you have it somewhat cornered on advanced difficulty, and the AI mugs you... ? I'll keep playing, but that's sure a weird bug.
Love it 4/5
Addicted to playing this, but my one problem is that you can't play with your friends unless you're sitting with each other. I want to play with my husband while he's at work but we can't!! Change this please
A total joke 1/5
This is the 3rd try that I downloaded this garbage app. It is beyond ridiculous how rigged this game is. The ratio of you landing on the computer's properties versus them landing on yours, is grossly disproportionate in their favor.
I'm an awesome Monopoly player in real life and have won countless times, and I've never seen anything like this. AND THIS IS ON THE EASIEST LEVEL!!!
Save your time and money on this stupid app!! It's junk!!!
AI cheats 1/5
This would be a good game if the AI players didn't collude with each other to give themselves monopolies all over the board. Case in point: Thimble has Boardwalk and Shoe has Park Place. Shoe trades Park Place to Thimble for St. Charles, even though no one even owns the other two properties to go with it. Now Thimble has a monopoly and Shoe has only St. Charles. In what universe does that make sense? The AI opponents will make deals like this throughout the game and before you know it, there are houses and hotels all over the board and you don't even have a single monopoly yet. The only way you can possibly have a fair game is by playing with only one opponent, which takes all the fun out of the game.
Fun but a little slow. 3/5
I don't get all the complaints on here. I manage to win about 30% of the time. So I don't think it's rigged. Sometimes AI even gives crazy trades the benefit you way too much.
As I said fun game. I mean it's monopoly! Just the animations are a little slow. Wish I could turn them off.
There could also be an online mode that would be nice.
Terrible AI 1/5
This game is ridiculous. It's nearly impossible to beat the AI. It will never land on your housed properties and you will always land on theirs. AI owned boardwalk and park place only, I owned almost every other property, had 2 full lanes. AI didn't land on mine once, I landed on boardwalk and then chance that read "go to boardwalk" immediately after. Not fun at all. Waste of money and time.
Just get the free version, this game cheats, you might as well not get cheated outta real money while it cheats u out of fake money
