Bankrupt from the start
Monopoly has received numerous computer conversions over the years, and here’s yet another one to add to the list.
Thankfully, being EA, the presentation of Monopoly Here & Now is extremely polished and nearly makes us forgive the exclusion of popular UK landmarks like Old Kent Road and Oxford Street.
Navigating the board is extremely easy for the most part, there’s a wealth of different options to choose from and Wi-Fi play is also available. Best of all, however, is the fact the game is limited to four players meaning you don’t have to wait an age for your next go.
Slick presentation aside, Monopoly is far from perfect. Playing against the computer is a nightmare, as the game always seems balanced in its favour, while W!-Fi play is only local. Sure you can pass your iPhone between friends, but you may as well just sit down with the original board game.
