  • Fun but...

    by bassnboy

    Fun to play and I love the table top mode, however I find that it takes up a large amount of memory, almost 1 GB. I feel that it is a little excessive! Other than the size requirements it is a fun little game!

  • Fairly easy, but fun

    by DataPilot

    I like to play against a couple of AI players on the "Difficult" setting, and usually beat them - but not always. Once you get used to how the AIs make less than great strategical trades, you can beat them at their own game. In fact, you have to, otherwise they'll gang up on you. I haven't played this game against other humans, yet, as no one else in my household enjoys board games. But it's a heck of a lot better than not getting to play Monopoly at all, which has been my situation for years!

  • Perfect, except file size

    by Steven Stolarczyk

    I've found this app to be excellent. Visually, it looks incredible. As far as gameplay, it allows you to do anything you'd want to do (legally). Controls are a little confusing, but not too bad. But, according to my usage statistics, it takes up nearly 1 gigabyte of space! For me, that's so huge that it nearly outweighs the quality of the app. Great app, but way too big.

  • Multiplayer Woes

    by Rocky1234

    Why are the iPad and iPhone versions different?

  • Tabletop crashes

    by Curie-us1

    Most parts of this game work well but when playing tabletop mode there are some issues when passing. The game crashes when 2 people are playing tabletop and one chooses to pass on a property. As soon as they bid, the game crashes. It did this about 10 times in one game making it too easy to pass on property and unfair. Fix this please. Using an iPad Air so it's not related to lag. Other than that issue the game works well.

  • Too many busy animations

    by Nanettesgarden

    I love this app and appreciate its loyal translation from Parker Brothers cardboard to digital. But please clean up all the busy animations, such as the line drawings that obscure the game board every time doubles is rolled and tokens go to jail. I also have noticed some sloppiness with the audio tracks not in sync with the animations. I liked the older version better.

  • Good but

    by Kira2013

    The game is great but when playing medium lvl all you get from chance and community is to pay something all the time, and the computer always getting a monopoly

  • Crashing

    by J.Rez

    Keeps crashing when going to place a bid. Please fix ASAP so I don't feel like I wasted $7.

  • Its good but

    by The_wolf98

    Its good but sometimes it crashes

  • No real online

    by whatwhatinthebut

    It would be pretty cool to have a true online where people could play globally

  • Good, but needs improvement

    by CJKMN

    This game is good, has a good amount of options, fairly decent gameplay- though the screen is a bit busy at times, maybe removing the fade away on letters and reducing number of things like money symbols flying across the screen- the tutorial offer on startup is a little annoying, this game definitely needs a worldwide or gamecenter multiplayer, able to pick other random players to play with. Other than that I have no major complaints.


    by Justarski's

    When I was the cat my first time playing I got all of the monopoly and won best game ever!

  • Just like the real game

    by Hammoid123

    This game is so fun. As if Im playing on the real gameboard.

  • Best game ever

    by Tyuioplkjuhuhoitdeswaqzxcvbnm

    Thank you for making this game

  • Not too bad

    by Salsander

    After seeing all the negative reviews, I expected the worst. I was pleasantly surprised to find everything working nicely. The single player is a blast and the computer AI is smart. I also enjoy the tabletop multiplayer that works wonderfully with the iPad screen space. My only gripe is the high memory usage (which is nearly 1 GB). It isn't terrible, but I can see why it may be an issue for others. [I have not tried playing multiplayer with multiple iOS devices, so I can't judge that. And for those giving one star ratings about the cat, grow up]

  • More players

    by Silent Crusader

    Only thing missing is letting more than four players to play.

  • Needs an update

    by rusty pumpkin

    Needs a space constraint and also the user playlist doesn't show the songs, so I have to uninstall reinstall for it to get rid of my songs! HELLO?!?!

  • Do not listen to the other reviews.

    by EggyErik

    If you are looking to play monopoly but not buy the board game, then this app is perfect for you. The display and graphics of the game are of high quality. This game is really good and fun for the whole family and I have yet to have any crashes. This app takes my monopoly experience to the top and I am sure that it will do the same to others

  • Crash from auction

    by GriffSaysSo

    iPad mini, every time the Auction launches the app crashes. The rest of the gameplay is great, but this is a crucial gameplay problem. Please fix or refund my purchase. Thanks

  • ....

    by Blade slayer

    I loved it , it worked great on the iPad air

  • Great graphics and gameplay, terrible cheating computer opponents

    by MoutFawd

    Running on ipad air: 5/5 stars no crashes after four hours of marathon game play. Graphics are superb on retina ipad air and every animation is fluid and detailed. BUT the biggest issue is the cheating computer opponents on hard level. The dice is rolled to their advantages and never have I played monopoly in which some body (in this case the computer) rolling 7 double six and rolling numbers to avoid landing on my hotel properties. Clearly cheating or terrible algorithms for human players making computer players have the advantage. I once had the computer avoid my hotels on boardwalk and park place a total of 32 times. While I land on their hotels more than 40 times continuously. The game gets so frustrating because of the poor dice cheats from the computer players. I can only give the game two stars because it's computer players are just plain cheats. Also makes incredibly dumb trades. Overall if not for the computer players cheating I'd rate this game a high 4.5 stars. Too bad there isn't multiplayer online. It would be worse actually because human players would probably rage quit more than the computer fixing the dice! For the next update if ever, please fix the computer cheating when rolling the dice!

  • Urmagerd

    by Latascia Hamilton

    Okay if you're gonna make an app at make it not crash every time i open the goddamn thing. I deleted a ton of worthless apps that i occasionally use to play this because i like monopoly and it still doesn't work. If I could rate this no opinion i would buuuuuuuut, i cant because life is just unfair proving this true by making an app that I spent a couple dollars on crash every time i open it thus, not letting me play this legendary board if this is my fault then I will accept the blame but if it is their fault i swear to god i will throw my ipad out the window and murder athe person/team who created this app.


    by osubucksfan

    You will roll whatever it takes to lose. AI will roll whatever it takes to avoid you. DO NOT BUY THIS.

  • Screws one player

    by MarshalAnson

    For some reason if you're playing with more than one human player it picks one and gives them every bad roll, every bad chance or community chest card. If you put hotels on a busy space no one will land on it,while you just so happen to land on all of their most expensive properties. Unplayable.

  • Keeps crashing

    by Saintshouse

    Keeps crashing during the bid process. So frustrating.

  • Ai has way too many cheats!

    by Cuegirl96

    I have played several hours of this game and several games. I know I have bad luck some times but in this game get ready to have ALL of the bad luck. When landing on the chance and community chest cards 97% of the time I pay out, fined or go to jail. When the ai lands on them it receives large sums of money. 78% of the time I land on "go to jail and/or all of the tax squares" thus causing me not to collect the 200 along with paying out the 100 prior to passing "GO". When playing the ai I find it more frustrating then enjoyable due to the fact the cheating is so oblivious and right in your face. The odds of anyone person always landing on the negative cards and not being able to pass "GO" and the ai always getting payouts and not landing on another players property are highly unlikely. Until they fix the cheats with the ai I can not recommend this game. I do however hope the developers read these comments so as to make the game more enjoyable.

  • Needs random number generator!

    by JonseZe

    AI cheats!

  • Don't waste ur time

    by Semititieidjjfjdm

    I hate this game u literally land on opposite players spots every 2 seconds, this game is horrible, don't waste ur money on a dumb game like this, it's a disgrace to the amazing original monopoly

  • Needs game center support...

    by mdrxb

    And interface is much too clunky.

  • Constant crash

    by Jmpdblc

    iPad mini. Unusable. Can I have my money back?

  • Crashes

    by JamieLynnette

    Paid money for a game that crashes right after opening. Great job guys. Not.

  • Paid for this & doesn't WORK!

    by Triniyd

    FIX it! Thanks

  • Fix the bug

    by Bjmyangel

    Tabletop mode- when we do not buy a property and it goes to auction, the app closes. We cannot play unless we buy every single property we land on. Please fix!

  • Tabletop play is buggy!

    by RCBA

    It crashes upon pressing bid on a 4 player tabletop game every single time. Very frustrating. Couldn't locate an in app feedback form :/

  • Stupid

    by Dave Ramos

    Buy this if you enjoy getting crap

  • Needs more player

    by The_Dude : )

    Only has up to 4 players so I hope you have only 3 friends or a small family

  • Crashes

    by aggrobot

    App crashes. No replacement for the real thing as a consequence. This is on an up-to-date ipad air.

  • Best cheating game around

    by Fgo18

    Nice, take a great board game and make it a cheating bastard!!!

  • iOS 7 iPad air - game crashes at auction

    by mazumas

    Really upset the game crashes when you go to auction mode on iOS 7.0.4 -.-

  • Okay

    by dad254

    Pros, fun gameplay, great family game Cons, takes really long to load, takes up so much storage for one little app. Overall, this app is not very good. Plus, it has annoying ads. If you paid for the app there shouldn't be adds.

  • Crashes!!!!!

    by Mandyleah

    It crashes every time you try to pass on buying a property. I was excited about this game, but until the crash issue is fixed it is crap!!!

  • Wifi/Bluetooth

    by Joleen0313

    Wanted to play game with my nephew who lives less then 15 miles away. How do I request a refund?

  • Kiss your multiplayer game goodbye

    by kane250

    1 hour into a multiplayer game and the app loses connection. Then it appears to be stored in memory, but you can never rejoin the old game. What use is this game if you can't play with friends?

  • Crash

    by Janjan217

    App crashes when bidding.

  • Fake

    by kaboomfool

    If you are looking for a game where you waste an hour only to get destroyed by the computer. on easy. you picked the right game. This game is terrible, and beyond frustrating. In each game I played, the computer continued to roll double after double. Literally each AI player had 2-3 doubles in each of their first 5 rolls. you do not get the true feeling your playing a board game everything about this is rigged.I gave it 1 star.

  • Keep on crashing!!!

    by Jojo78902@3

    Please stop crashing,thank you!

  • Crashes all the time!

    by maboudre

    This is a great game but in tabletop mode, every time you try to pass instead of purchasing a property when you land on it, the app crashes. Way too frustrating!

  • Frustration with trick dice

    by NM1R

    It is a fun and addicting app (when it works correctly) but I am frustrated with the trick dice. Even carefully placing the stylus on the desired square the token lands on the adjacent one. I have just deleted the app from my iPad 4 and would not recommend it.

  • Non Random Dice and Poor AI

    by Argentum928

    while the graphics are decent, the game is slow, limited playing pieces, unimaginative functionality, etc. But the two biggest issues are; 1) the supposedly random dice become decidedly non-random when you play against the AI, and 2) the AI players make property trades that are obviously and statistically not in their favor. Each player is supposed to act in their own best interests, not make stupid trades giving one AI player a distinct advantage. That is just bad programming.

  • Monopoly

    by Arminii7

    Great app I love to play monopoly!

  • Could be so much better

    by Patotheduck

    Bluetooth and wifi games are lost if the app is left. So makes it pretty useless to play with friends. The moving camera while others are rolling the dice is very annoying. It would be better to be able to see the whole board the whole time as an option. Why a max of 4 players? Why no online games with strangers or friends? Overall it's fun, but it could be so much better.

  • Good, could be better

    by Qermaq

    Gameplay is fine, as you would expect. The captions that accompany the play actions with animations off are very slow, we need a skip option. It's hard to follow the action with animations off and there's no way I can find to at a glance see all your property in a Deed Card style view. Also, at end of game we cannot see the final layout, or save our winning results. All in all worth the money, but this supposes the game will DEVELOP over tine....

  • Huge file size and too much bling

    by toasty_tim

    All the flashy star explosions and animations need to go. This game causes seizures! And 950 mb for a board game is ridiculous. Scrabble is only 50 mb. Monopoly for ipad has too much extraneous bloat to justify keeping on my ipad let alone playing it. What a waste of $.

  • FIX MULTIPLAYER !!!!!!!!!

    by Messi pro

    Only reason I DL this app was to play on wifi. Please fix this option . What are we paying you for?

  • Why no 1 human table top mode?

    by Xeddex

    Please please update one line of code to allow one human player table top mode. This is killing me. I want to play monopoly on the ipad and have it feel like the boadgame. That's called table top mode which is perfect EXCEPT for the fact that you can't start a game with only one human player. Why? There is no reason for this. Personally i don't want to see all the non-table top mode annimations; i just want to play monopoly. That's not too much to ask is it?

  • Ouch! Don't waste your $$$$$

    by sappdawgs

    Crashes all the time! Can't play! Doesn't work! Waste of money! Too bad my 8 year old spent his money on this! Lesson learned!

  • Almost Perfect

    by Daxxos

    The game plays well. The only thing that bothers me is no online multi player and there are a few minor bugs.

  • Doesn't work

    by Taylerrrrbhfghjhb

    :( so sad! It has a glitch or something. Every time player 2 goes, it automatically buys the property it lands on and automatically rolls for them. And yes I am on human mode. I really wanted to play this with my family tonight :( so bummed

  • Cheats, wth with the cat?

    by notherpinion

    If you update, it gives you the cat -- and you lose the iron. This is not a physical version of the game, so why on earth would you eliminate a piece? Not like you have to make them at a factory. Very frustrating that it essentially plays with loaded dice and the "IA" players make deals when not their turn and in ways no real players ever would.

  • App is a Waste of Time and Money

    by Maiken5390

    I bought this app so my wife and I could play Monopoly without the task of putting the board game together. I bought it, it won't even download... and then I go report a problem and ask for a refund and "This app is not eligible for refund." apparently. Don't buy this app, its absolutely terrible.

  • Crashing, fix this please

    by Richardgonzalez

    Do not buy until this problem is fixed, great app when it was working, avoid until this is fixed

  • When are you going to fix income tax?

    by EPJS

    It's supposed to be $200 OR 10%. But the game doesn't have the 10% option.

  • Rigged

    by stcy252

    I have it set on medium, and my piece always lands on pay income tax, negating the $200 for passing go
