Nice Application - I enjoy this application. It is worth the money. The slowness of Monopoly was due to figuring out who owned a property, how much rent was etc. This game greatly speeds all of that up. It is a big improvement over a physical board. A few suggestions for improvements as of Jan 20, 2013 would include: 1. Be able to set the speed of play; sometimes AI notifications happen so fast it is hard to keep up. 2. The Chance and Community chest cards appear to reshuffle i.e. the get out of jail free card seems to come up as soon as it is back in the deck. Normally cards are not reshuffled until all cards have run through. 3. Placing audio controls in a more obvious location such as the menu bar. 4. Being able to set new house rules as default for future games. 5. If you initiate a trade where you give something up and not get anything the system could alter you one additional time to ensure that this is what you actually intended. 6. Players in jail should reside on the orange square to differentiate people who are just visiting; pieces just visiting should reside on the just visiting portion of the tile. 7. The ability to permanently hide (disable) the trade notification instruction about drag or click.
Waste of Money - This is the worst game I have ever purchased from iTune. The folks giving Monopoly anything above two stars are evidently not experienced players. The difficulty levels are a joke. At the two easy levels of play the computer makes some of the dumbest moves/trades you will ever see. A six year old is not as stupid, so yes you can easily win at those levels. So if all you want to do is win all of the time, those levels are for you. But as you move to the Medium and Hard levels the game achieves that increased level of difficulty by rigging the dice throws to favor the computer. Play over a hundred games at the Hard level like I have and you’ll see what I mean. The dice toss should be controlled by a totally honest random number generator so everything is fair, but for some reason the builders of this game did not do that. Shame on them. Forget the difficulty level stuff and just make it a totally straight-forward and honest game. Absolutely not recommended for experienced players.

Force closes, confusing play - There needs to be some changes to this, and there needs to be a patch - it continually force closes on my Mac, and this is the only game I have that does this. Some things that need work in the game: It's sometimes hard to see what's going on with the way the board is displayed, and how fast it goes. I wish there was an option of an arial shot, instead of looking at it sideways. I guess they were trying to make it more realistic, but it makes the game confusing and hard to desipher what's going on.
Needs an update for Yosemite... - This was a nicely made game, unfortunately since the upgrade to Yosemite there are some minor issues that don’t make the game unplayable, but they significantly dampen the experience to the point that it becomes unenjoyable. One, you can’t see the dots on the dice. So you roll them blindly, and the computer just tells you what you rolled afterward. Two, the shapes of the monopoly pieces are indistinct blobs. Now, neither of these things is a major hindrance to playing the game, but together they are an annoyance that makes the $9.99 pricetag seem ludicrous in hindsight (it was priced a bit high to begin with). If this gets fixed I will happily upgrade my review.
Rendering issues with Yosemite - Love the game but currently characters and dice are not rendering since I updated my Mac to Yosemite.
Please FIX IT!!! - I love this game on my iPhone and thought that I would like it on my mac. I can not get the graphics to work. I’ve tried all the usual trouble shooting but there are still gray globs and dice. Other graphics are wacky, too. It is very disappointing!
Not updated for OSX Yosemite - As one of my all time favorite games, I’m sorely disappointed this game hasn’t received an update in over 2 years. If you’ve upgraded to OSX Yosemite, don’t bother purchasing or trying to play this game. The tokens are missing all their textures so you only see blocks and the dice don’t have their number indicators on them anymore. They’re blank cubes so you have no idea what you rolled. Granted it the game moves your tokens for you, but playing blindly is lame. I tried for about 30 seconds before I got fed up with it.
