    Sonic Monopoly

    Everyone likes board games! Among them, one is king, and it's pretty tough to beat when it comes to video game renditions of these American classics. I'm talking about the one and only Monopoly, a game that everyone knows. It's time to take those hotels into the digital realm, friends! Fire up your Genesis, grab a few friends, and prepare to spend the next twenty hours or so trying to stay out of jail. If you don't have the time or the friends, then you can always settle for our full review to get your fix.

    nothing beats sitting at a table playing the real thing with a bunch of family/friends (risk is even better!)

    This is a good rendition of the classic board game - and I think its pretty fun. I think if you go by the review manifest - he got the score just right. But I think it feels better than a 6.

    slow boring non-skippable animations. (the dice shaking !!)
    only 2 controllers

    could have been better than the board game.

    Unskippable animation scenes is bad but not having to take out the game set up the bank, shuffle the cards and have the hazards of accidently stepping on a hotel or house may out weight that.

    My problem with Monopoly is that it goes on for way too long. At least this version lets you end the game at any time.

    Thats true. It would have been cool to have a save battery - I mean, nearly everytime I play the actual board game its a multi day marathon where you just play for a few hours and then leave the game there and come back to it the next day.
