DO NOT BUY IT!!!!!! -0 stars 1/5
THIS GAME FAVORS COMPUTER EACH TIME. I LITERALLY SAT HERE PLAYING 6+ HOURS AND LOST EVERY GAME. Don't buy it's not fair and a waste!!!
Just make it random 3/5
Why couldn't they just make the dice rolls truly random? This would be so much more fun. There should be a difficulty setting that forces the dice to be truly random.
Dice not rigged 5/5
Almost didn't buy because of the negative reviews. If you know the major strategy, you'll win more often than not. Still possible to tweak game rules to make it a little more interesting.
Build Houses 1/5
How do you build houses?
Cheater cheater pumpkin eater 1/5
Let's skip to the middle of the game.. I knock out two AI players and am down to just one AI.. It owns both utilities and has a monopoly of the reds and the dark blues.. I own everything else.. All properties have hotels (I turn the hotel limits off) and I have about $4K.. At this point, the AI goes to jail, stays on for 3 turns and doesn't land on my property when it gets out.. On the next turn, they go directly back to jail, again without landing on my property.. They repeated this algorithm 7 times.. Meanwhile, I go around the board 20+ times and land on a red or a dark blue every time.. Now I have no hotels and the AI has like $17k and I continue to land on their properties every trip around the board until I'm mortgaged into bankruptcy.. I started playing this game almost 30 years ago and never saw that happen once.. The game obviously cheats..
So rigged 1/5
I really love how this game works.. let's see an example... so computer has 3 houses each on boardwalk and park place, and two houses each on the red section, computer gets the card that says it has to get hotels repaired yet it only pays 120... I had 3 houses on the light blue section and got the same card and paid 400....-_-
Unfair. I need money back. 1/5
This is terrible game. If dice is not fair, what's the point of the board game? Such an unpleasant experience and requesting money back.
UNPLAYABLE / DO NOT BUY 1/5
By daniel boom
Game fragrantly cheats and grossly favors itself without reservation even at lowest difficulty. I WANT MY MONEY BACK.
LOVE THIS GAME!!!!! 5/5
By Donde esta everywhere
I really enjoyed playing Monopoly as a kid and this app totally does the original justice! I saw several poor reviews about unfair rolls and such and I can honestly say this game is fair and a ton of fun for any Monopoly lover. If you are undecided, buy it! You just need good business strategies to win!!!!!!
Claims of rigged game are not absurd 1/5
By Skooty Dice
I couldn't quite remember why I deleted this game the first time...until I got it again and played it for a week. Not one win. Anytime I was able to gain a monopoly, the AI would never land on those properties. Not worth the buck I spent on it. Get the board game and play with friends, at least you can be in good company if you're losing.
The game is always in favor of the computer. I want my money back!!!
PLEASE ADD MULTIPLAYER 3/5
Great game. Love Monopoly but it gets boring playing CPU all the time. Add multiplayer!
This game is impossible to win 1/5
Every time I think I'm ahead bam!! The dice always tend to favor the computer. I purchased the game earlier today and have not won a single game. It's ridiculous.
Fun game, hilariously infuriated reviews... 5/5
IMO; the dice are NOT rigged just because you can't seem to win. The "difficulty" seems to adjust the responsiveness of the AI (i.e. willingness to trade, if they buy themselves out of jail or wait, whether or not it plays dirty with auctions when my funds are low - kinda like a person) and that makes it fun and challenging... if your primary complaint is "I can't win", then perhaps it's time to learn to play more strategically. I am playing against the exact same AI and have both won and lost my share of games - frustrating as the losses can be.
If you think that the dice are rigged, I would guess you've never played repeated games of monopoly on a real, physical game board with another real, physical person that make you want to flip the board over and scream. Haha. Sometimes the rolls are ridiculous in real-life too, and they're not loaded. Sometimes I clean the floor, sometimes I lose terribly... same goes for playing against this AI. I've both won and lost - though I've won more than I've lost - and have played dozens of games... some games it does feel like the dice are stacked against me, but GUESS WHAT... that is how it feels in real-life Monopoly, too.
I get really frustrated, but it's a good time.
Is this game truly rigged or not? 4/5
By Rhi Rhi ;)
Though i may not be able to give you 100% answer i'd Say no. Played this game 1000 times (not full games , but ive had this on my ipad a very long time). Some people just have worse luck than others. Part ofd this game is strategy people maybe try something new to beat computer? Iff you play the same strategy and it didnt work the first times just try it a different way. You are gonna win and lose, if u don't win maybe switch it up.
Lots of fun 4/5
I win 4/5 times in level 3.
Trade trade trade and get a monopoly as fast as you can
Get all the railroads
Win win win
WASTE of $ 1/5
Won't doing anything but attempt to load. Nice...
Many complain this game is rigged... how does that help the developer??? Ok then. Just like the election, this game is fine. Great game. Not your problem the bad reviewers just blow at monopoly!!!
The game wouldn't let me do auctions nor could I keep the game going when playing with another player....
Fun game but.... 3/5
Don't expect to win. Even on easy settings it's hard to get a win.
Entertaining BUT........ 2/5
The game favors the computer wayyyyyyyyy toooo much it really makes it no fun. I mean it's not a slot machine or a gambling game.
Change the settings a little bit there hasbro. Otherwise your game is not worth it
Do not download. Fixed dice to help comp win. 1/5
The game is fixed. The dice are loaded. It is set up to let the computer win. It is a horrible frustrating game. It is completely wrong. I would not get it again or recommend that anyone get it. It will make you want to throw your phone. I hope the creator fixes it. The comp will not land on your properties while you go around and land on their properties losing your money and eventually lose.
The AI in Monopoly is beyond dumb 2/5
The decisions made by AI are just plain dumb, no matter what level of difficulty you are playing. In the hard level of difficulty, the dice rolls, chance, and community chest cars are NOT random in any way, shape or form. I have played at least 500 games, and I can predict what I am going to roll or draw about 50% of the time. Dice rolls always skip the properties you need and put you in jail. Chance and community chest are ALWAYS the ones where you pay or go to jail. The AI always gets the good cards. ALWAYS. However, after a certain point in the gameplay, it does go back to random. This is after you have been screwed by the computer.
Game is rigged 1/5
I have tried over and over and over to try to win on easy. I tried everything. I owned almost half of the board and they owned only park and boardwalk. However, I would constantly land on boardwalk and park over and over every round. However, they will manage to avoid my property. This game is horrible. Until they fix the AI, don't buy!!!
I just want to win already ... 3/5
The game is absolutely stacked in favor of the computer. I've been playing the same game over days in my free time. I managed to pull out of mortgages and financial struggle to now own the pinks, oranges, reds, and yellows - all with houses or hotels (limited building like in real game). I have over $100k. The computer owns Boardwalk and Park Place, the browns, and the light blues. We've been stuck in the ring around the board for a ridiculous amount of time. I whittled the computer down to $5000 and now it won't drop any lower. Somehow I always land on Park Place and Boardwalk in consecutive turns. I've been hit with taxes, housing costs from Community Chest and Chance, jail, railroads, etc. The computer just won't lose. Frankly, I'm too stubborn to quit because it'll show as a loss in my stats. If the favor of computer can be fixed, then please do it. I love Monopoly but I would like the satisfaction of winning (or losing) fairly. Thanks.
Not fun, not fair 1/5
The dice always favor the AI (computer player). I had this experience a couple of years ago too and it hasn't changed. The dice and other things favor the computer. The computer player sailed past all of my properties/hotels on an entire side of the board. What are the odds of that happening once, let alone 11 times (literally)?? Meanwhile I land on "his" properties all the time and he barely had any. What are the odds? It wasn't a 1 time thing, I've experienced these same things numerous times where the computer gets miracles against astronomical odds. Another example: I've played monopoly for 30 years and I've never been prevented from passing Go for a half hour until I played this iPhone version. And that's happened 3 times in this game. The AI is too consistently and unreasonably favored and it makes for a frustrating experience that just wasn't fun for me. Deleting it again, this time permanently.
No matchmaking/cheating AI 1/5
At the end game , regardless of whether or not you own the whole board and are dominating. The AI players will always land on chance to avoid all your property while forcing you to roll into their hotels at the most convenient of moments. The AI cheating wouldn't be as much of a problem if i could at least play online in random lobby's with other players around the world. BUT O WAIT I CANT. So unless if you have friends who also own iPhones and are planing on buying this game DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. Its a waste of a dollar. EA clearly does not care about this intellectual property (or their reputation as a studio) Don't waste a dollar.
Why in the world can't you save settings 2/5
Why do I have to reset my settings every time I play the game? Bluetooth multiplayer is quasi reliable, Wi-Fi multiplayer is practically useless.
All I do is win, put yo hands in the air, make em stay there 3/5
To those who can't win against the AI, the secret to winning is trading. The AI only has a rudimentary understanding of return on investment, and so will accept long term detrimental trades for short term profit. Even with the obviously loaded dice, bad trades will kill over time most of the time.
About the dice, they are definitely loaded. The game seems to be setup to last a certain amount of time. Load up properties with hotels quickly and watch the other players magically dance around your properties. After the game has dragged on long enough, then you'll be allowed to win. If the computer manages to set up a monopoly quickly, the dice rolls will favor you in order to keep you playing.
I DEAMND A REFUND 1/5
I DEMAND A REFUND
Would give this a 5 if rules were followed by AI 4/5
Love this game. Very good except for the fact that the AI is not exactly intelligent. Trades are horrible, especially on the 'hard level'. Also, last time I checked, you couldn't mortgage a property just to buy another one, especially in an active auction.
You all need to make sure the rules for monopoly, the real rules, are being followed by the AI.
PLEASE FIX ASAP!!!!
The AI blatantly completes the most improbable revolutions around the board. They will avoid every property you own time after time again. Not fun.
Bally is best 4/5
By Thanks Bally
I appreciate you Bally 😌👍🏻
Not fun... 1/5
By Mr. Vik
This game has serious internal flaws. It will pick a random player and use them as a guinea pig for every possible negative outcome. Not realistic or fair. A waste of money.
Rigged don't buy 1/5
First game acquired st Charles to New York and all 3 ai avoided it 4 times in a row my normal strategy won a few games on normal 2/5
Second game went to jail 3 times in a row while ai went around the board getting properties.
Won first game on hard with board walk
Last recent game changed strategy to acquiring boardwalk and park place and all 3 ai avoided it 6 times in a row
Also during last game purple gets doubles and lands on a property through chance acquiring 3 places in 2 turns yellow gets a rr and and something else. Red gets 3 properties in like 5 turns
Since they took most property I went around the whole board and acquired a rr and park place ended up trading rr for boardwalk plus 300 and had 2 houses on them all game and was completely avoided 6 rounds by 3 ai in a row
I took a family trip and while we were there we played monopoly board game and I was still craving the game for the by the book rules which we didn't play. So buying this further further fuels my anger because the game cheats. One game I landed on income tax 3 times in a row after passing go.
Rolls are not random 1/5
By Mike. Mentel
This game proceeds to let you down as much as let you win, 90% of the time you can guess which place you and your and opponents piece will land. Either to your favor or huge loss no matter what stradegy is used. There is definitely an algorithm to keep it fair between AI and user... Not fun
By Oyster mushrooms
This game is not worth the money it's dice are rigged for the the ai so it will always win
Rigged and bad quality 1/5
I was expecting something WAY better but I guess that's kinda my fault for expecting good things from electronic arts. The die is completely in favor of AI!!!! I always get 7,6,5, or 9 EVERY TIME. (Mostly 7) and overall difficult to use!!!
Fun but rigged 3/5
Impossible to win
Dice are absolutely rigged 1/5
Every single time I went past go the dice made me land on income tax and the A.I NEVER land on my monopolies, always land on the community chests and chances In between where they ALSO get positive cards giving them money where every card I get is either jail or a fine. Cannot play this game when it's not based on the chance of the dice instead is based on making the A.Is immortal. Absolutely furious about this horrible game.
Update review 1/5
Just silly now. They made the resolution so tiny I must use reading glasses now. And they thought "M" is necessary replacement for "$"!!!!???? Really!!!??? This is the garbage you spend time on? Not improving the AI? Have NEVER lost a game even on "hard." Would delete but my 7 year old niece likes beating the game.
AI is dim. You figure out the way to beat the AI in about 5 games. No it is just a matter of seeing how quickly you can beat the game. Still play it once a week, but it has lost any challenge.
Random my butt 3/5
It will pass the time BUT too easy on lowest setting and rigged on higher one
Not a great game 2/5
Rolls are not random. One player has better luck after going around the board 4-5 times
Rigged die and the screen continually goes black 1/5
By Rich Man Jones
One of the reviewers mentioned a scenario where you can own the majority of the board with hotels and houses on all and the AI will manage to go around the board six times without touching any of your stuff while you on the other hand hit every tax and the chance/community chest always gives you the horrid maintenance cards.
And ever since I updated to iOS 10.2, the screen continually goes black so often that it's frustrating to keep playing.
Unenjoyable and Rigged 1/5
By *Punk Rocker*
Truthfully I thought everyone saying the game was rigged wasn't being honest. However, it's true. The game is so rigged there is no chance of beating it even on the easiest level. It's not even fun to play. It's just frustrating.
Level of difficulty 4/5
Been playing for years.
It is getting boring now especially when one wins 9.5 games out of 10.
Difficulty update anyone?
It's ok implementation of the game, pretty and official. But animations slowing the play a lot.
I love the AI 3/5
pretty good how on medium they're easier than on easy
Game is trash 1/5
Please don't waste your money. Dice are not random and game play is terrible.
