MONOPOLY - The Board Game for Negative User Reviews

Should be freeReally annoyed that I paid 6$ for this game and haven’t been able to finish 1 multiplayer game..Version: 1.0.7

Fun but a rip offIts an addicting game and makes you deal with how to spend wisely, however the add ons is a rip off and can’t change your name in the same month which makes it more money stealing. This app shouldn't be like monopoly in real life..Version: 1.5.0

Don’t even botherAi coding is ridiculous. It’s always rigged against player one and it always seems to favour player 3… why? This game is completely garbage and please don’t waste your time buying it. The software coders need something unfortunate to happen to them… like playing their own sht game..Version: 1.5.6

Number of player caped at 4Make no sense that we cant be more than 4 in the game should be at least caped at 6. Maybe not in Multiplayer because player might leave but at least in custom game..Version: 1.8.9

This game is badThis game is bad I wish I never spent my money I want my money from it back but I can’t.Version: 1.6.3

"We've fixed it" but they haven't.UPDATE 24-May: Once again the devs release an update to fix unreliable online play and it does nothing. Still unreliable, still frustrating, still ripped off. UPDATE 17-May: Tried it again and sure enough it just froze with no action on the AI player an hour into the game. This makes it 4 out of 4 games that have frozen. UPDATE 16-May: Latest update has made the game even more unreliable. We've played three games and every time it has frozen. Their infrastructure (by their own admission) wasn't sufficient and it's no better with this latest update. Developers - Forget the new features until you fix the game itself 🤦‍♂️ 1 - Randomly the game will stop and it's no one's turn. Can't get it to move to the next persons turn, so the game just stops. 2 - If I'm playing "Online with friends" and I dare to change to a different app, it disconnects the game and then there's a 50/50 chance the game will crash out (as above) or I'll be replaced with an AI bot. It's incredibly disappointing to be playing against friends and then to have a game destroyed by glitches..Version: 1.1.6

AI Advantage is blatant an abhorrentThe AI advantage is abundantly obvious in this game. It begins from the start. The chances you’ll go first are low, I’m talking 1/30. Then you’ll land frequently on properties already purchased. To top that off when you go the chances you’ll roll a 4 are about 75% putting you on tax and paying out $200 before you really start. AI trade offers with other AI are never rejected so they’ll get a property set quickly. I’ve had it where AI has been around the board twice, I haven’t even made it once and AI has a property set and hotels. Dev’s have said they don’t give an unfair advantage to AI. I say, if your willing to pay the money for the game see for yourself in addition to several other comments with people having the same issue. You’ll get to the point where you can predict by round 2 which AI is going to win, then the game becomes about watching them land exactly where they need to. It’s so obvious you can be more accurate predicting where the “randomness” is going to place AI. Your chances if doing this correctly are better than your chances at winning. Oh, and this is on easy mode. For Dev’s to say that AI doesn’t have an unfair advantage is an insult, share your probability tables then. The game is a waste of money and time unless you enjoy frustration and watching AI get miss your property over and over while you will miraculously land on theirs over and over..Version: 1.11.3

Please Beta test before releasing updates, Thanks!I would of course give this game a better rating if there wasn’t a problem, but boy, was there a problem! I woke up this morning to play everybody’s favorite board game when I noticed that the interface had changed slightly. Apparently, there were some ‘improvements to the interface’. I didn’t think it was I big deal at first until I hit a brick wall. You see, I was trying to buy a house on States Avenue and with the ‘improvements to the interface’ they’d added, the stupid Buy Houses button completely covered up the property, so good luck putting a house on States Avenue! (or Virginia Avenue, for that matter!) These ‘Improvements’ make it very hard to see what I was doing at times, but make it impossible to do certain things to other times. This makes the game virtually unplayable at times, particularly making certain plays like trading or mortgaging property or buying/selling houses. I’ve been playing this game a lot recently and only noticed this problem today, which means it updated last night for me to enjoy these ‘improvements to the interface’ today. I’m playing on an iPad Pro 12.9 if that helps your designers fix the issue, but quite frankly it shouldn’t really matter. The software should’ve been tested more vigorously before release. Put simply, PLEASE FIX, THANKS!! Other than that, the game’s great!.Version: 1.1.2

Do not purchaseExpect to go to jail all the time and never collect $200 by passing go. The game will constantly send you to jail to prevent you from earning income. When you do finally get past GO expect to land on income tax often erasing the $200. While this is happening no one will land on your properties,ever. Eventually the game let’s you pass go and start winning but for some reason draws each game out forever. Save your money and frustration. Do not purchase.Version: 1.3.2

Not ImpressedThe game locks up, there is no ability to communicate with other players, you can’t choose how many players, and you can’t turn off the dragged out process with each roll. Was excited to be able to play online, but this whole game needs fixing, as well as removal of insulting prices to get upgrades! A game of 6.99 shouldn’t have costs of nearly $50 to upgrade!!.Version: 1.0.4

Cheating *collusion* Long Waiting TimesMany players I have come up against collude. Both players will buy anything they land on. Then when most streets are bought, one player will trade all their money and streets for $1 with the other cheat. Also game stalling and freezing occurs often. No chat as-well. This game needs so much improvements and anti-cheat prevention software..Version: 1.1.3

Pretty averageThe multiplayer is pretty average, I would suggest creating lobbies instead of just randomly joining people, also the multiplayer games mostly fill with AI that attempt to act as other players but you can tell as soon as they do trades because they offer amounts not ending in 5 or 0. You should be able to speed up the game when playing with AI, such as a simple speed up button or be able to skip animations. The game overall plays like monopoly but yea, adding these would make the game much better..Version: 1.0.5

End button disappearsConsidering you have to pay money to have this app you would think glitches would be fixed regularly. The whole time I’ve owned the game (and my friends have owned it), during a game sometimes when it’s your turn when you try to end the turn the end button disappears and nothing happens. This becomes really frustrating when you’re more than halfway through the game. Please fix it.Version: 1.6.21

Biased against the playerIf you don’t mind having no genuine chance to win in 4 out of every 5 games then buy it, otherwise you are best trying something more mature in terms of game play. I bought this three days ago and have spent a lot of time on it. When playing the AI single player, the game is pretty well unplayable. Even in Easy there is an anti human bias and loaded dice. It means that it is impossible to develop reasonable strategies or tactics. You end up winning around 1 game in 5, regardless of your strategy or experience. Strategy and experience are NOT recognised or rewarded. When it comes to human vs human it is similar, there is a bias against all but one player. Now the Devs have come on and said its not true, but whether it was intended or not it does exist. The game play experience is so poor that it renders the journey un-navigable. The graphics seduced me, I thought they were indicative of a great game. Sadly I was wrong. As for those graphics, there needs to be an option to play a flat board without the 3d environment. It would increase the speed of game play a lot and wouldn’t be unnecessarily visually invasive. Overall, it appears that money was spent on the very seductive graphics to the cost of genuinely engaging game play. I’d seek my money back if it was possible. So that’s an honest review, I don’t normally bother but until game play is significantly improved its best to stay well clear..Version: 1.6.7

Great but needs real improvementNow Im a huge fan of the game which was why I downloaded it. However there is so much improvement needed. When playing there is no time limit on turns so if a player decides that they are losing instead of just quitting the game they decide to just leave the app so there is no way for their turn to end. This is left with all other players waiting. I waited HALF AN HOUR on one game just because I thought I’d leave it while I was watching the football. This happens way way way too often and it simply ruins the game completely. Why dont you simply introduce a time limit on go’s so that players will have to take their go otherwise if their time limit runs out you can deduct some of their cash. Another idea is once its one players go give the other players the option to call time so there can be a time limit once time is called. This one issue is really really bugging me about the game Especially with it being a paid game too. I RECOMMEND YOU NOT TO PURCHASE THIS GAME until this issue has been resolved. Its really unprofessional of them to not fix this issue yet and it seems like they do not care about our views as there doesnt seem to be much done about it. Another issue is that once a game has been won there is literally nothing else to do. There should be a leaderboard or a tournament or some other option as once a game is won we cant even see our own stats etc. Dear monopoly creators, please Improve!.Version: 1.4.5

Would like to pause online games with friendsEverything works great, but in real life we might play for a while, then leave it for a day or two before coming back and finishing. The app can do this if you’re in pass n play, but would be great if we could do this when playing with friends online. In online chess you can set a time limit for each turn, up to a week or two, and this is a function we would use for Monopoly if it had it..Version: 1.4.2

Freezing IssueThis happens from time to time, after a few games the game decides to freeze while everything else is active. I’ve had this happen to me quite a few times and witnessed the same issue happen to my friends while playing together. The timer doesn’t help at all once it runs out it magically reappears never to run out again, even if I minimise the game hoping a bot replacement would atleast continue the game but never works. Its a big bug as the game is literally stuck even after the frozen player quiting the game. If it happens during the start its not a big problem until it freezes during a long lasting game which is just frustrating and annoying making it almost unplayable. I genuinely enjoy this game ignoring this issue while it is uncommon to happen it makes us players regret purchasing this game, it should run smoothly being a paid game..Version: 1.1.6

Shifty gameDo not purchase this game because it is poorly designed and it is just waste of your time and money.Version: 1.5.6

Unfair - unrealisticThe game is designed to last far longer than should be possible. I decided to take notes to see if it was luck or that there is scripting going on. This game took 17 complete passes to win. 1. I paid exactly £2800 in fines (including community chest etc) 2. AI paid £600 in fines 3. By pass 8 I had hotels on Navy blue, brown, orange and red. 4. AI did not land on any hotels until pass 15. 5. I went to Jail 5 times (twice in pass 8) 6. AI went to Jail 3 times (conveniently when he had less than £300) 7. AI bought 2 yellows and I paid over £800 across the game on these two squares. 8. I received £420 in “prizes” from community chest etc, AI received £730. 9. I paid £200 fine (on passing go) 8 times, AI paid £200 on 5 occasions (avoiding all my hotels in the process. 10. I paid hotel/house maintenance on 2 occasions (nearly bankrupting the 1st time. Scenarios like this present itself in every game. I intend to screen record my future games for everyone to see. This could be a great game. Graphics are good, UI is very friendly. Sounds are fun but this is all marred by (I hope a well intentioned) a weighted AI and dice to ensure a longer “fun” game. Monopoly could just change the game physics to allow for more realistic play and allow the user to decide the level AI bias..Version: 1.6.21

Scripted games galoreI guess this is the downside of an electronic game vs real dice. Many scripted games which favour the computer or the person in the weak position. Any strategy goes out of the window on this one. Even if you have 3 sets with houses on vs 1 set. The computer does its best to even things up unfairly with timely dice rolls and random community chest and chance. I just played a game where I had 2 sets, oranges with houses and hotels, Mayfair and park lane with 3 houses on each and 3 stations, against an opponent who had two yellows and very little money... kick in the script. They buy the last yellow, miss all my properties 4 times around the board, I get house repairs, they take all the money from free parking and put houses on their yellows. I land on the only one with 3 houses and then continuously on the yellow properties 4 times in arrow while he misses all properties with houses and the stations every time. He keeps landing on mine only when all houses are gone. No surprise I land on it twice in one go, to go bankrupt. The developers of this game have clearly scripted this game for what reason, I don’t understand. I’ve played many games with real dice on a real board and have never experienced this. Advice to the developers, Make it random and fair..... it can’t be that hard. I Won’t be playing this again. Save yourself the frustration and play the board game instead..Version: 1.1.2

IMPORTANT: Game-ruining glitchHello developers, On this game recently in ‘online with friends’ there has been a glitch where the ‘end turn’ button once pressed will sometimes disappear and the game will not move on to the next round. This forces my friends and I to have to start a whole new game which is incredibly frustrating and annoying. I have tried many things to fix it and nothing will work, so please, fix this glitch because customers such as myself will certainly not be happy..Version: 1.9.4

New update, new bugSince the last update, some trade arn’t displayed to the player, or the are really fast then automatically refused. The game also keep freezing..Version: 1.2.1

Ripped offYou took away my profile and gave me some random one and won’t let me change it back so I deleted and reloaded the app and same thing… your game sucks what a waste of money… I want my money back 😡😡😡😡.Version: 1.5.8

Single player mode isn’t realistic at allIt’s incredibly unrealistic playing single player mode, despite it saying “easy”, “medium” and “hard”. The “easy” isn’t as such, and is almost equal to the “medium”. All dice rolls seem in favour of the AI player in single mode. Quite disappointing and very frustrating when playing the game. Random dice roll does not simulate game play!.Version: 1.5.0

Can’t trade in online modeThis app has always been very glitchy and I’ve often not been able to complete games due to it crashing. However very recently it’s been completely unusable due to the fact that no one can make trades in online mode. This needs to be fixed BADLY. Also - I suggest that there be a chat function where you can write custom messages. Would really help aid trading..Version: 1.2.1

FixedThe single one on one player that you play against the computer is totally fixed in this game why didn’t you just leave it with electronic arts hasbro you have ruined this game.Version: 1.6.21

AnnoyingI really regret purchasing this version of Monopoly. I enjoy the game and used to play it on my computer until Microsoft’s updates prevented it from running. This version totally favors the AI players. I’ve played about 20 games and have only once been able to purchase a railroad by landing on it and a couple times when the computer player put it up for auction. Only one time did I ever land on a utility to purchase, but I land on them constantly after the AI players own them. Almost every game one of the AI players will own 3 of the railroads. And once you trade for a color set and build the AI players will land on Community Chest, Chance or a railroad but stop landing on anything you’ve built a house on. A few games I’ve managed to trade for most of the properties on a side, yet as soon as I do I’ll land on everything EXCEPT what I own time after time around the board - something that is EXTREMELY unlikely in a truly random game. Also I’ve yet to be the first player…a few times I’ll tie for the roll of who starts but always lose on the 2nd roll. I’ve played this game as the physical board game and from a disc when it was playable on Microsoft enough to say with confidence that there is nothing random about this version of the game despite what the developers claim..Version: 1.8.13

Computer just cheats… ALL THE TIME!!The game is great because you can play with your friends and interact which is awesome and I love it! But if you play against the computer, it just cheats - all the computer players constantly land on chances & community chests and get free money, on the odd occasion that I land on them I always have to pay money out (EVERYTIME). Also the same player (the dinosaur) has landed on chance and then got a card to pass go 4 times in a row… so they are not landing on anyones properties, they are not paying out any money, they just keep skipping the whole board and collecting £200 everytime - it’s like the computer has decided that this is the character that will win and that’s it… Worst part is… I currently have the level set on EASY (can’t imagine what difficult would be like) - I’ve now played 3 games and everytime the T-Rex wins straight away, even though in one of the games I owned 80% of the board, but he just managed to skip everything. I however ALWAYS landed on income tax and then his property on EVERY ROUND! Honestly, just disappointing for people that may just want to play by themselves….Version: 1.7.6

Decent game but has problemsEdit: Adding to this months later. Just played a game where I went around the board 6 times and didn’t land on a single color property that can be built on. Watched 2 AI’s set to medium acquire 2 FULL sets each within 2 passes around the board. 1 AI specifically had 2 oranges and not enough money to buy the 3rd, but landed on the single property it needed 3 times in a row before it finally had the money to buy it. Incredibly rigged and frustrating, the OPPOSITE of a game of chance. Worst 3$ I’ve ever spent, don’t waste your money. First off the game is noticeably rigged. (Surprise right). Any time I put the computer difficulty to Medium and above, 95% of the time I’m the last to roll and when I do half the time I land on 200$ tax my first roll. Second I wanted to see if it was possible to own all properties on the board, it is, but as soon as I got to that point I went to jail my next 10+ turns in a row whether it was from landing on chance, 3 doubles, or landing on the man himself. I kid you not I spent 15 minutes straight going to jail. The only thing difficulty should control is trading/managing properties, not taking the random aspect out of the game and rigging it against you. Can’t tell you how frustrating it is rolling last on 90% of games and getting screwed over on every chance and chest landing..Version: 1.5.6

DisappointedBought this game as a bundle all the other games work great! But this game is the opposite, haven’t had one full game yet and we have tried multiple times, every time it just freezes and you can’t exit out to refresh the game because you’ll just end up losing your whole game. Would also be great if you could exit out and then come back to it on a later date of you had not finished playing. Has the potential to be a great game but was very disappointed with the game overall, mainly because I paid money for it to just not work in the first place, would rather just have my money back really..Version: 1.2.5

Biased Dice and AI luckMonopoly is primarily luck based, so it’s strange to see the same pattern in every game in the pass and play. The blue AI always has lots of money and no properties, the red AI always has lots of properties and no money. They trade completely un-strategic properties to give each other monopolys, for far less than they’re worth. Then even after I have hotels on green, yellow, pale blue and pink, somehow manage to only hit one of my properties every couple of laps of the board. Ive noticed this every game for the past week, 2 games per night, which is enough to make ‘bad luck’ seem implausible. If the AI was fixed, this would be a great game..Version: 1.1.3

Been playing for 2 months…I have been playing this game for just about two months now and I can honestly say that the frustration is outweighing the fun. Other people reporting that there is nothing random about the dice rolls are 100% correct, in my experience. I’ve played dozens of single player games since buying this and I notice the exact same patterns that others are reporting. I don’t mind losing a fair game, that’s part of the fun. I’m also not saying that the AI makes you lose every game. But it does feel like a good number of games you just see the AI sail past multiple blocks of properties you own, not just once but over and over. Only once you lose all your houses and are bordering on bankruptcy do they start landing on your property. This happens quite frequently. I have I’ve seen developer feedback back to this on other reviews and they say, we would never intentionally want the player to have a negative experience. I believe them, but I also wish they would take another look at the single player AI, algorithms. whatever you want to call it, because there is a balancing issue and it’s ruining the experience, at least for me. Again, nothing wrong with losing, it’s what makes winning fun. But when you’re losing to the same recurring patterns and it gets to a point where you can predict the AI rolls, that’s just not fun. I hope the developers read this and consider the feedback as I will continue playing the game in hopes that changes are made..Version: 1.8.5

Needs SERIOUS fixing.There are a few things that keep this game from feeling like a genuine Monopoly experience for mobile. One of my biggest complaints is the fact that you cannot do something as little as pull down your notification screen a smidge without being forced to bear a 20 second+ dimmed out “Rejoining game...” screen. That’s ridiculous. Why should it take that long to get back in the game when I hardly even left? The connection errors/bugs are ridiculous and make it rare to get a solid game in. That’s unacceptable, really. What’s the point in playing a game that’s likely to crash because of bugs? Also, the lack of any form of communication between players is upsetting. Seriously, no chat box? No ability to use our microphones? You want to charge $4 for a board game and not let us speak to each other? They’re also charging $30 for a season pass that I believe features strictly cosmetics. 🙄 Marmalade, if you want our money at least give us a solid game. Another complaint I have is the only games rules we have to choose from are: Classic and Quick mode. It would be nice to have the options to change the rules/play custom games and whatnot. To the Monopoly fans, tread carefully because this game was clearly developed as a cash grab and not to give us the mobile Monopoly we would expect in 2020. The base gameplay is acceptable, but the flaws make the game close to unplayable..Version: 1.0.11

FLAWED!There are some things you have to fix. First of all, the game treats the computers fairer than me, and me fairer than other people on Online with Friends. Second of all, we shouldn’t have to pay ANYTHING! Especially $40 on the season pass, they say save 74%, but in reality you may not save anything. Update Response: I bought the Explorer Pack, and I will admit it was fun to use, but it is just a main way of showing off sometimes and makes no changes, be glad I am not changes my rating to 1 star. Let me explain my problems in more detail. The AI is stupid. They hope for the best with their roll of the dice and often I have to quit the game just to make things fair, as in many other reviews, the AI is rigged. Problem #2. Monopoly is a simple board game, why do you have to PAY MONEY for a simple board game. Explain that in your response. Problem #3. I realized that Online with Friends gaming will sometimes freeze, or be out of order with the turns of other people. It will say it is one person’s turn, when really it is the next persons turn and sometimes vice versa. You are better than Bloxels, who deletes reviews. Thank you for your time and patience! Monopoly is one of the best board games created! Just please fix the bugs!.Version: 1.7.19

Fix the game please (very rigged and algorithmed)I know monopoly is already raking in money so u guys probably don’t care much, but this app needs a lot of word, the AI is so bs. The harder the mode the more rigged it will be, i owned brown set, orange set, and red set. And the hard ai only had pink set and managed to make me my friend land on it while he didn’t land on a single on of mine, he then sent us to jail and made us both land on pink the second try which bankrupt my friend and gave the ai the dark blue set. I understand the AI is meant to be hard, but it should just make the AI make smarter decisions rather than make the entire game rigged. And can you guys please fix the dice. It isn’t random rolls at all, the game has a weird and annoying algorithm that tries to make the game longer than it should for no reason. Making poor players land of random jackpots and making rich players constantly get taxed, land on poor people property and etc. fix the game pleaseeeee.Version: 1.9.4

Options and ProfilesThis game is really great. I love a game of Monopoly to pass the time, but there needs to be more free options for boards and pieces. I understand you have to buy some and that’s fine, but all of them. It’s already a paid for game. I also feel like your profile should track how many games you win or lose, even against the computer. Would be more fun if you could track your progress and maybe what colour sets you then to buy more, or highest number of houses or hotels in a game. Highest earnings. It would be great to see it evolve.Version: 1.6.20

Worst APP STORE game everEven though the board game is an amazing game for the whole family. This game is a nightmare. It will get stuck an hour into playing and the hours you have spent playing a full game mode will be lost. It has happened to me 8 times, yes you heard me right 8 times and i have only played 3 games successfully. On top of that, there are no achievements and no way to track your progress. I should have read the reviews before purchasing this horrible app. Will be requesting a refund now..Version: 1.1.3

Great game when it doesn’t freeze. Few other annoying issues too.Positives: Great game, Great functionality, feels like the dice is decently random. Negatives: -Freezes and won’t recover 1 in 3 games. As previous review, it’s annoying when you’re 10 mins in, it’s infuriating when you’re 40 mins in. -Chance and Community Chest cards do not function as per the proper game (shuffled, then drawn in order and card placed at bottom of the pile to cycle through again. The last game I played the first 3 chance cards were ‘Advance to Mayfair’ - complete rubbish! They are Monopoly, they are the experts...they should know better. -The tab for mortgage obscures the oranges which is a bit annoying clicking it over and over when you are mortgaging/unmortgaging oranges until it finally works. -More annoying is when trying to buy/sell houses on the light purple (Pall Mall etc) and the tab affects your ability to do it...over and over the tab goes in and out as you try to click the sliver of property around the tab with no houses added until your time runs out and you’ve not managed to do what you intended. It affects that group so badly I now avoid the set. Completely skews gameplay because of bad programming. Maybe if those issues were on a free version but at £3.99 that should be pretty basic stuff to get right. Those issues really take away from the experience of an otherwise 5 star app..Version: 1.1.2

Dice is totally unfairThis game has a fully broken dice. It decides at the start of a game who’s going to win and who’s going to lose. Certain characters will land on multiple properties and even take sets by themselves, while other characters will go around the board 10x and not land on a single property that they can buy. It’s beyond a joke to be honest. A game like this shouldn’t be 110% luck based. There should be some skill in the game which decides the winner through smart trades ect. Instead you’re playing a game that favours one player, heavily punishes another player, and the other two are in between. They need to fix the coding of the dice that allows some fair gameplay land actual skill in the game. Currently it’s just a pressing the dice simulator and the winner is who ever lands on the most and most beneficial sets. Yesterday I played a game where one player landed on all FOUR stations HIMSELF. He then proceeded to take around 5000 in rent total by the end of the game JUST from the stations because every character was continuously landing on all station.. like what is that all about?!?! Where’s the fair in that?.Version: 1.1.0

Freezing games all the timeGood game well made and enjoy playing but pretty much all the games I have been playing online have frozen without loading again so everyone can’t continue, tried multiple time with the same problem. need an update to fix these constant issues.Version: 1.5.0

Nice, but no thanksThe game itself is very nice. It’s monopoly. But the AI just ruins the whole experience for me. When you start off, if you get lucky, you might buy a couple properties in the first few laps around the board. The AI on the other hand will make extremely one-sided trades and eventually get color sets within 5 turns. But of course they still somehow have 1200 left even though they bought around 7 properties. Then they put hotels on the given set. That’s when everything goes downhill. Everybody somehow starts landing on those properties and the one AI starts taking off. Meanwhile, even if you have 10 properties, you’re lucky to get a color pair with a few houses on them because you had to trade to get it and the AI had to overprice the property they’re selling you. I have started about 30 games, but when I know I’m going to lose the game I quit just to save time. I’ve won 1 game out of the roughly 30 games. If you have average luck you’d win about 7 ish games. So the math isn’t mathing on that. I don’t really care if I win, I just want to have fun. It’s hard to have fun when the game is manipulated against you to get absolutely crushed every game. Also another thing I’ve seen is that there are a lot of issues when leaving the game and the incorrect housing will be there, people will have different amounts of money, or a move just won’t even register and I’ll be back where I was before. So some major problems there also..Version: 1.7.7

Rigged as hellThis WOULD have been fun and entertaining IF it wasn’t so obviously rigged. The dice rolls are not random, statistically improbable to the point of being ridiculous - this becomes even more transparent after you get a monopoly of any kind, your AI opponents almost always seem to get repeated miraculous rolls time and time and time and time again, you might get the odd one land but- what’s the point of playing when this is such as pervasive theme with nearly every game, don’t buy this game unless you want to lose, lose again and then keep losing because no one lands on your property- two thumbs down, game designers need to install a REAL random simulator.

Game is filled with broken glitches that ruin your gameHi this is the second review I’ve written this one is short because it’s self explanatory. You need to play your own game for real sit down for an hour and play each mode especially play with friends because the game glitched out and I could not return back this is a serious issue because the game will disappear after and have no way back to return. Other glitches were someone will only own 1 railway station and they you have to pay $50 for the one station when we all know it’s $25, when your playing pass and play and your first player and every time you can not at all trade with the AI’s :/ like what this game is a really good time waster but you seriously need to sit down and uncover all the bugs for the game you so furiously rushed with no consideration for the people that HAVE TO PAY FOR THE GAME THAT IS BROKEN!!!!!! seriously please play your own game.Version: 1.0.8

Unaddressed freezing issuesThis is partly my own fault for not checking previous reviews. I can see there has been an issue with the game freezing while in play that has been a problem for more than 2 years. The game is great but I think considering what was paid for it, I would expect an explanation as to why this issue is not resolved. The game is not a short one and it’s really frustrating to be an hour in then loose everything. Not really good enough..Version: 1.7.13

It's good but could be betterI do enjoy it, but it would be better if it kept track of your score, had some kind of leaderboard and also had some incentive to different milestones if you win, could include different counters or different monopoly board countries, It's pretty easy to get bored of playing after a few weeks when nothing changes without spending more money..Version: 1.8.6

App will not let me purchase new boardI’m trying to click on it and it won’t let me purchase the board when other games let me what’s happening I would uninstall it and open it again but I’ll have to buy it again.Version: 1.0.7

BugsSecond time I have paid for monopoly on my phone. I still have the old version from about 6 years ago. Unfortunately it’s impossible for my friends to find so I have paid again so we can play together. There were a couple of bugs during trades. A friend couldn’t afford to pay a debt on my property. So I suggested a trade and I would cover what he owed plus a little extra to trade. The funds didn’t go over to him. Forcing us to quit the game. Also when playing with others online they do not end turn. I would suggest a gentle prompt. Or maybe some sort of timer as again I have had to quit games. I would also suggest a button that speeds up the ai players (this was an option on the old game). This is probably the only reason I am still using the old game. Hope you appreciate the suggestions. Would love a voucher to buy a new board!.Version: 1.6.14

Changements étrangesPourquoi l’impôt est à 200$ et non à 10% ou 200$, quand il te reste 201$, c’est chaud! Et taxe de luxe sur mon jeu de table a toujours été à 75$ et non 100$..Version: 1.11.1

The game appears to be riggedGood graphics and smooth gameplay however when playing against the computer, after multiple games over months, it is very clear that the game is rigged for the computer to consistently avoid your property and for you to consistently land on theirs. Takes the fun out of it when it is supposed to be based on chance..Version: 1.5.0

People keep quittingI was super excited to play this game because my boyfriend had installed it on his computer and I wanted to play with him. I bought it and started playing with other people but the issue I constantly run into is either when somebody is losing or about to go bankrupt they intentionally quit the game. Or I assume they quit the game because the game will just stop. They won’t roll, make a trade, or put houses down. The game is at a standstill and I have no idea why. There needs to be some sort of timer for everything so that way the game can keep moving or if someone doesn’t make any moves for a long period of time or purposely leaves the game they should go bankrupt and their properties should either get auctioned off or return back to the board for the other people to buy in the future. It’s super annoying having to leave a game because nobody is moving or being sore losers. I don’t have any interest in playing this game anymore because of this. It takes so long to even start getting to a place where you’re making money and getting people to land on your properties so going through all that just to quit because someone doesn’t want to play the game anymore is annoying. Wish I could get a refund..Version: 1.2.1

Good game, poor executionThis is definitely one of the “Greatest Games Of All Time” as we all know, but when it comes to playing it, you can be half way through a round and have accumulated all the deeds you wanted, just for the game to suddenly crash. Definitely builds you up for a failure. $7 for a game that crashes every time. Not worth at all, very disappointed..Version: 1.4.11

Glitchy Expensive, Glitchy, Mess of an App. Horrifically built. Do not download.*game is hyper, hyper expensive. You can literally buy a physical monopoly set for the cost of the season pass. Some micro transactions within the game are more costly than the entire original PC port of this game, which is ludicrous considering it’s already not particularly cheap for the base app. Typical hasbro. I wouldn’t mind so much if the app was made well and didn’t glitch consistantly. But.... *Playing on an iPhone XR, encounter a game breaking glitch in around 30-50% of online matches I play. Usually in the form of all the buttons on the left (mortgage, deal and property purchase buttons) completely disappearing for no reason and being impossible to make visible again, or the game simply freezing mid turn. I thought maybe this was a latency issue, but left it unattended to catch back up and it was still loading mindlessly 20 mins later. *Game completely disconnects and reconnects if you accidentally minimise the app, lock your phone or even slightly swipe back out to the app marquee. This leads to game crashes or further glitching around 40-50% of the time. *No in game chat. Monopoly isn’t a kids game. There’s no reason for WSOP to have curse-sensitive text chat available and not Monopoly. I maybe get where they’re coming from, but surely there’s a compromise. Even button chat options, or something Alike, would make the online play at least feel somewhat interactive..Version: 1.1.3

Good game. Disappointing when it freezesHi, I really like this app the game is just like the board game and is great fun to play with friends online. It does seem to now freeze every second or so game when playing online and doesn’t recover. It is very frustrating and we have to give up on the match. It seems to happen when you do something extra in a turn e.g. check a property's rent, go to mortgage and then back out these and other cases make it freeze and not select the next player after end turn is hit. It is not just an iPad issue either it happens on iPhone too. If this could be fix this would get a 4 star rating. For a 5 star please add in game chat support. Thanks.Version: 1.1.3

Next turnI have been playing this game since a lot of time as it’s fun to play with friends online but when it come to proper online players at start it’s really goes well but the frustrating part of the game is when some one in middle of game doesn’t end turn as they might forget or might have quit. For that there is no timer or any indication of the player wether they are still with us in the game or not. After playing for an hour and waiting for your turn for another half hour doesn’t give me any sort of fun winning the game bunch of times. So this timer or indicator for a player needs to fixed first priority of bugs. If this isn’t fixed then it ruins all the fun of lot more players of “MONOPOLY”.!.Version: 1.1.0

Playing against the CPU on hardI don't typically review games, but I do enjoy playing Monopoly. And this app in particular is made very well with great graphics, user friendly, and stable play.. However I'm a little put off by the way the creators decided to make the computer play on the hardest setting. What I've noticed is that instead of having the computer play a more competitive and skillful game it seems like the creators just resort to rigging the dice and making it impossible to either land on property or for the cpu to conveniently never land on your property if you've built houses or hotels.. So instead of it being a fun and competitive game it's more of an automatic loss. I'm not complaining about losing to the cpu lol.. it's more so that it seems lazy to instead of allowing the dice to fall randomly like they would it real life.. it's sometimes painfully obvious where they next player is going to land based on if I have a property with houses on it.. I would hope that the team would take a look at this review and make adjustments not so that it's easier to win but so that the game Mimics more real life play but with more skillful players as opposed to just programming the dice to not land where it would be favorable for the user..Version: 1.9.14

Programmatic “fun” isn’t funThe algo running the others players is opaque. the game designers must believe that injecting drama and suspense into the game make for a better game experience. The dice rolls are not random. rolls and chance and community cards which should be random are instead used as tools to elongate the game. I am not simply complaining because i had a few games here and there where i had a run of bad rolls. it is very easy to beat algos and i can manage to steamroll to wins in all settings and player counts. it is just that the game is obviously tilted to manufacture glorious wins and painful losses with the apparent purpose of added entertainment value. but the fact is that there is strategy to Monopoly classic, and if a strategic player can win 100% of games easily due the implementation of ruthless tactics and strategies accounting for randomization then that is how the game should be played. It is not more fun to have it thrown in your face that you mortgaged one property on the board and all of the players land on that property six times in a row. If it could possibly be chalked up to a random bit of karma then it truly would be a moment of humor and levity, but with this algo it is predictable, thus not random. and this removes the fun of the gameplay. As a result I do not trust this producer and will not purchase other games from Hasbro..Version: 1.6.21

Nice Rendition, A Bit ColdThis is a slick, nice running monopoly game. I first saw it played on Twitch and said I have got to experience this. The graphics, animation and modeling are really fun. Based on old reviews, I think many issues from the past are solved. The network seems reliable and the rules and variations are pretty much on point. The AI players add a new dimension. They are annoying at worst and a wonderful addition for shrewd dealing humans, at best. The klunky repetitious and nonsensical “offers” they make are pretty bad. And the fact that they only assess deals based on value of the deeds and classifying them as “easy, medium, or hard” just improves their luck and reduces yours makes them pretty frustrating at times. But they’re fun to push around and like I said, they create a whole new dimension in game play. Imagine making a deal with a predictable robot to mess up your human opponent, etc. That said, the overall game feels cold and lonely. How do we know we are really playing against a human when we join Multiplayer online? What is our own record of wins and losses? What if we want to play against a particular player again? Marmalade and Hasbro are doing a pretty nice job getting all their games online. But these old parlor games deserve at least a minimal social component to keep people returning. Edging really close to four stars!.Version: 1.1.3

To priceyEverything costs so much money to do even after you pay money to get the app..Version: 1.11.3

Playable, but frustratingCoughed up the $4 to pay for this game because me and my girlfriend love the board game irl. Have we had fun playing it? Of course. Have we had our fair share of experiences that are hindered by bugs/issues? Of course again. Most of the time when in the “play online with friends” mode, the game just randomly freezes. Nothing that any player can do does anything to get the game out of its funk, and we end up reluctantly having to close out and try again another time. This is something that can be expected from a free game, whatever. But for 4 actual dollars I would very much like a game that is well-polished and free of any game-breaking glitches. The dice rolling also leaves a little bit to be desired, I find myself getting an unrealistic amount of triple doubles like Lebron James and consequently always end up in jail. The AI also always seem to avoid landing on your hotel tiles and arrive on on juuuuust the right spot depending on the situation. One AI got all of the railroad tiles in one go around the board and I literally vomited all over my phone from anger. Again, if this was free I wouldn’t give a flying fudge but seeing that it cost me 4 of my hard earned dollars I would like a fix to the crashing at the very least..Version: 1.7.7

Stuck on reconnect!!The game is good and feels pretty much like the real thing, but if you get a notification or touch the home area on the screen, check your battery lever or ANYTHING, it disconnects you, which is very annoying, and you can’t return until the next turn. If you are in the middle of doing something and it disconnects, it doesn’t end the turn and the game is effectively stuck with no way of getting it back! Extremely annoying if you are playing with friends and well into a game. Really needs to be fixed..Version: 1.1.3

Lack of effort madeThis is seriously one of the most cash-grab money hungry gaming apps I’ve ever encountered. It is so obvious the people that created this monstrosity of an app did not care and made this just to make quick money. The app looks so pretty and colourful and gameplay mechanics seem unique but the Overall Gameplay is complete trash. So many times I have had to restart the app because it randomly freezes in an online mode. It often crashes when a player has yet to quit his turn and there are way too often moments where players are forced to wait long periods of time for no reason. When players have a complete set of land, the dice tends to favour land that is unowned and right next to the set. It is so obvious that the game wants to keep the mode going so it manipulates the dice in this way. No level system is implemented. Just randoms playing each other which is okay but for $5.99, i expect at such a price, to have more value and variety within it. Very disappointing. Yet to try versing my friends but after playing this, I don’t think I want to..Version: 1.1.3

Should have an “are you sure?” Or “confirm” buttonWhen choosing what to do with you properties, the game should contain a confirming button before the action is done. When I was looking at swapping a property with another player the mortgage button was accidentally hit and I touch one of my properties which automatically mortgaged it when i didn’t mean to hit it. I then un-mortgaged it, but it at first didn’t respond and then mortgage it self again. The game did this three times in a row. In turn lost $600. Not impressed..Version: 1.0.0

Simple thing but can annoy someHi. I had a game and did enjoy but found some things that annoyed. 1. The board is US. As an Australian I found it difficult to know where I am since I’ve grown up on the UK board which I thought was the classic board. Costs more to switch to the UK board than the whole game cost me. 2. Something as simple as changing my name can’t happen without signing into an account. Normally not an issue except with all the hacks going on in Australia and around the world, I’m trying to lower .. not raise my internet footprint. Should at least use my AppleID for my name. Otherwise it plays well and looks good..Version: 1.8.1

IntolerableThr algorythms for what players roll are not random at all. You can tell early on who the winner of a game will be because from the very start one person will get more than everyone else. There rolls will land them exactly where they need to be constantly, they will only get money from chance and community chest, they never land on taxes. But most of all they will just always avoid there opponents spaces that would owe huge rent while seeming to get get everyone else to land on there owned spaces. Every game is becoming intolerable because they arent even close, they are predictable and it happens every game..Version: 1.11.1

Could be better with an explanationThis is a review for people who are considering to buy this. First of all I bought this game the day it came out. I was very disappointed as their was a lot of just waiting around for players to play their turn, I assume they were experiencing server problems or other issues. This has now been mostly fixed however their are some glitches. One which I just got was I pressed to end my turn but the game just paused. I was still able to talk to the other players in game. However I think the best item for longevity for any game is adding rewards. What they should do is for instance if you win once with a certain character it gets a gold skin instead of the original silver skin. But ultimately they need to add a feature we’re the player wants to play to unlock something and that makes us the players want to play more. But overall this game is okay it is in a much better state than when it was launched. But once again to keep players playing and buying in game items to generate a revenue we need a items that are won from winning games.Version: 1.2.2

SO MUCH FUN.....when it works.I love monopoly and the app because it takes away the hassle of keeping up with board pieces and having someone act as the bank. However, it is far too common for a player to get disconnected or for the game to freeze, ultimately ruining the entire game and leading me to have wasted 2 hours of my time. Also, it is hard to differentiate when a player is simply not paying attention, forgets to roll, or forgets to end their turn so it would be EXTREMELY USEFUL to have a ******chat function****** or at least a button the players could use to notify other players when the game has come to a standstill. I really hope that the monopoly app creators will take these suggestions into account as I have recommended the app to many people and know they have experienced the same frustration as me. Also, it would be awesome if their was a way to pause the game (which I know may actually difficult due to connection issues). Additionally, the game disconnects when someone gets a phone call or even if low battery signal pops up on a players phone. Sometimes the bots will pick up and play for the disconnected user but other times the game is screwed. Regardless, I love how the game is customizable and has great layouts. Love this game, will definitely keep playing, but would profoundly appreciate some improvements given that the Monopoly brand has historically been held with such high regard..Version: 1.1.0

Bug need to be fixedI think this problem need to be fixed urgently. It happens a lots of times already. The game always lag in the middle of game when I do a little bit complex action such as buying several houses or checking some cards. And I tried changing the wifi to data and it doesn’t recover. It says reconnecting, and when it finish reconnecting, there is still no button for me to end my turn. I can see the other people saying ’Hurry up’ but I just don’t have the red button to continue. If I close the game and reopen, I could not get back to the game I was on and needed to start a new one. Please fix this as soon as possible as this is affecting my game experience heavily and it feels terrible when I cannot continue on a good progress in the game..Version: 1.6.2

Program is great, online opponents ruin product.The game as presented is excellent, graphics and game play are well done, and the improvement made since first introduced solved the technical glitches. I would give this 5 stars, but unfortunately the lack of a true chat interface or community makes self policing the games impossible. Online multi-player has become vertically impossible to play now, as immature opponents destroy the integrity of the game. They do this by not losing gracefully. Many of these players, when it becomes clear they are at a disadvantage will trade all their assets to another player well behind for $1, instead of just leaving the game and allowing AI to finish. Most recently it’s worse, as it’s now becoming common for players to land on an expensive property, but if they are not instantly bankrupt they are able to sell their assets for $1 to another opponent, and then no longer have assets available to pay the owner of the property they land on. These idiots and an unwillingness of players to Simply reject these offers has rendered your product virtually unplayable except as a stand alone against AI, or against specific friends through IP. If you are looking for an online experience against random opponents, this is no longer a viable option..Version: 1.6.14

Great game! Add ons - not so much.I bought the snowdrop valley theme to play and was very excited. I start to set up the game and select the new board and all was good... Until I went to change my character to the snowmobile. It said it was still locked. I went back to check if it was included in the theme pack and it was. Now I am majorly disappointed because I spent $11 on it just for the feature I was most excited about to be unavailable. I would either like this to be fixed or be given a refund - very disappointing..Version: 1.1.5

Glitches during gameGreat game and fun to play but often gets stuck between players turns. Sometimes this can take upwards of five minutes to load, frustrating to what would other wise be perfect game play..Version: 1.8.13

Changing namesGame is alright but how do you change the name on your character.Version: 1.11.1

Very disappointing lack of control over gameThe original Monopoly was great. You could turn off the sound effects (which you can with this one); and you could turn off the irritating and totally unnecessary subtitles. Who want a running written commentary of what the computer is ‘thinking” about re a purchase? You do not have an option to turn off auctions with each game. It’s on by default - another interruption you should be able to turn off. I for one, a fan of Monopoly since it first came out as a board game, can’t stand these irritating intrusive and distracting activities - sufficiently that I might never play this game as an electronic game again. I don’t think its worth the outrageous price for all the options - especially given control over the distractions is lacking. It gets 3 stars because fundamentally its a good game - but those uncontrollable distractions are a major negative IMO.Version: 1.8.5

Fixed and buggy GameThis game could be so good! It's a shame that it crashes 50% of the time, forcing people to leave the game, you can be playing for an hour, to have it crash and ruin it for everyone. Also, this game is obviously programmed to give lesser players a chance, the dice rolls are most definitely not random. If you are doing well, you are far more likely to land on other players properties, hit tax, get bad luck etc, but if you're losing and doing badly, you almost always miss other properties, collect money from chance, or get sent to go! I understand this makes it more interesting, but it's incredibly unfair and immensely frustrating when you are winning by such a long shot, that you get taxed every roll of the dice, get sent to prison, just so the game can allow lesser players to have a chance. It's about as random as these betting apps that tell you you have a 1/10 chance of winning £1,000,000. Please remove this annoying and unfair feature, and please stop it from crashing every other game!.Version: 1.1.5

Slow animations and game freezes upNo option to reduce animations means the game goes unnecessarily slow. Auto zoom in and out means you can’t see the board for context. Can’t see the player pieces while any player is considering a trade either. Animations also burn through device battery quickly. Ended up deleting the app after several multiplayer games froze up, leaving the players to curse using the limited pre-set chat messages and watch the useless animations before eventually quitting the game..Version: 1.5.0

Game Breaking Mechanics.Hello, I have played several games of Monopoly on this app. So far, the games have all been 4 players with 3 AI all on easy mode. All my games just so happen to go the same way. At first, because the AI is on easy mode, I to great! I’m usually the first to get monopoly while the AI is rolling decent and realistic rolls. This positive trend follows into the middle game up until the endgame. During the endgame, their is a switch. With 2 players bankrupt, me having a thousand dollars minimum 2-4 monopolies all with a few houses and hotels. The other player is generally just as good. But, something changes. For some reason the AI just so happens to just the correct numbers to avoid my hotels/2-4 houses...for like 6 rotations to the board... they literally almost never land on my properties when there is only one AI left. Me in contrary, is landing on every single one of their and gets all the chance cards which make me pay more. The chance cards they land on gives them money no matter what in the endgame. You cannot tell me this game is rigged against the player. Sometimes AI’s came back several thousands of dollars and ended up winning. The game while fun, is against the human player. If not, explain my experiences. “Which happened consecutively”.Version: 1.0.7

Sure, it’s Monopoly, but…As a paid app, this game advertises itself as a “premium experience”. It’s not lying when it says it doesn’t have ads, but I’d have way less issue with this game if there was any type of progression system that rewarded the player to keep playing. I was excited to boot the game up to see all these other Monopoly tokens and maps you could play on besides the default, but after playing many matches, I realized that absolutely NO content is provided to you by playing the game itself. You get one map. You get the default character tokens. All of the other content is visible on the screen for you to buy, so if you want another map, buy a $50 season pass or buy maps individually for $10. Want different tokens to move you around the board? Almost $3, each. There’s absolutely no reason to continue playing the game besides the fact it is Monopoly. And it is Monopoly, so, you get what you were basically expecting, but it sucks to be faced with a mountain of visible content, on a game that you PAID FOR, and have 0, absolutely NONE of it dolled out via gameplay or achievements. It’s a really basic tenant of game design that wasn’t followed here and it baffles me. I don’t even care if some of it was behind a paywall, but 100% of the content beyond what’s first available to the player? What the actual heck were you thinking? If you gave out a few more items via unlockables, that could actually incentivize players, because they might decide they want to unlock it all. But nope, zero sense of progression between Monopoly games. There isn’t even like, a leveling system to show how many games you’ve played over time. Another complaint I have is that the board is hard to see on iPhone, and I have pretty decent eyesight. A simplified view, or more accessible view, would help with the pass and play in the game..Version: 1.5.3

Baloney!Anybody else think they’re not playing against real players? I suspect you’re playing against AI and/or the computer’s determining the fall of the dice and the outcome of the game. Why, whenever you start a new game there’s almost instantly, other players ready to challenge you? - this game is either unbelievably popular or the competition is computer generated! As someone who’s played online for a week and won spectacularly and lost dismally, I suspect the latter and am not likely to be playing it much in the future! Added:- Persevered with this game, mostly to see how ridiculous it is. It the biggest fixer of games I’ve come across. In the last 3 games I played, which I was well ahead in, my opponents on each 3 occasions were near down and out, but miraculously, on turn after turn, the moves were blatantly against me, so much so that I generally could guess what each throw of the dice would bring - a total fraud!!.Version: 1.6.12

Fun but buggyWill rate 5 stars when the game gets fixed. Game keeps freezing and then you have to restart the whole game all over again..Version: 1.1.5

Lost count of how many games have frozenThe game itself is really neat. However, online multiplayer is abysmal. Every third game freezes up and it’s incredibly frustrating. I wouldn’t recommend playing because of this..Version: 1.1.3

RiggedIt’s rigged.Version: 1.11.3

New monopoly game!What a sad rip off,take off the old game,and put this crap on! Very disappointed,big waste of Money for this Senior🤨.Version: 1.5.4

Great game that’s too glitchy to finishThe game is fantastic, just like the board game. But it comes with so many glitches that it literally becomes impossible to reach the end of a game. Just played 3 games with my friends online, and all 3 ended prematurely due to glitches or malfunctions. For starters, if your phone receives any notifications that pop up on screen, you run the risk of being disconnected from your online multiplayer Monopoly games. This includes pop-up notifications for texts, emails, phone calls, other apps, anything. And especially don’t think about quickly exiting the app for any reason, that’s a guaranteed disconnect. But even if you play the game without distractions, certain mechanics start to breakdown after enough time passes. You’ll draw Community Chest cards to pay $50 only for the debt to not be taken from your account. You’ll roll the dice only for them to disappear and your turn to never end, the token never moving and it being impossible to reroll the dice. You’ll make a trade offer, only for the game to freeze and be impossible to resume. My friends have so much fun playing on the app, but have only successfully completed a handful of games since the app’s release. Clearly, more troubleshooting and supporting updates are required before this app becomes more playable..Version: 1.0.10

Game is great but needs to be polished.I love monopoly and was excited to spend my real money to play this game on my phone instead of having to play with a physical board. I wish there was an option to play with your friends and random players instead of just Ai. The BIGGEST PROBLEM with this game which needs to be checked and polished is the Ai when set to Medium or Hard. You will notice the rolls do not seem random and it always favors the Ai. Also the Ai will make trades with each other that would be easy to help themselves out, but if you want to trade with Ai they want double profits and value to make trades. The Ai will skip pass your property multiple times and rack up money from other Ai and Chance/Chest. While you as a player will 8/10 always land on their property leaving you bankrupt easily and quick. Ive played the game multiple times on Hard and I was slowing about to win but the last Ai started to skip my property multiple times and i landed on the Ai the same amount allowing him to eventually bankrupt me when in reality I should have easily won the game if the Ai landed on my property just ONE time. Please developers fix the Ai. I spent $5 real dollars to get cheated by Ai!!!!!!!.Version: 1.10.0

Great but frustrating.Great game. Very frustrating. Some games play through till the end. Often times just freezes part way through regardless of internet connection. Also, when playing with friends, cannot pause play... if someone needs to leave the app for some reason, they cannot re-enter the game to play on. Also, when playing 3 players, once one player has become bankrupt, you cannot do any deals with the remaining player, it defaults the deal to the bankrupt player with no option to change and nothing can be done. Some work needs to be done..Version: 1.0.4

ProblemsI really love this game especially now that you have made it possible to play in phone it’s even better, but there are some problems that I am facing, like our pieces are invisible idk if it’s the internet problem or the game, I think it’s game cuz other games runs smoothly with same internet and can you add free text like quick chat or emoji to know whether they are playing or not it would be more fun that way too, also can you add time limit like if the person doesn’t roll the dice in 1min they go to jail something like that so that other players don’t have to wait forever, if these are improved in the game I would love to give you 5 stars cuz it’s worth my money. Hope you update it soon..Version: 1.1.3

Great but super frustrating.Was having a blast playing with my friends last night until the issues started - it really puzzles me how this app struggles to bounce back if the host or other players connection dips. We had to restart our game after 30 minutes of play time followed by 1 hour and 30 minutes into the second game. Monopoly is already frustrating enough as it is let alone having to worry about the game freezing 3 quarters of the way through. I honestly feel like the theatrical features of this game should be toned down if they can’t master letting the average user get through a game..Version: 1.1.3

WATCH OUT!!! DON’T BUY!!! complete Glitchy/Buggy game.You will be lucky if you can every play through a game without it stalling mid game and you have to quit because of it. Came back a few month later to see if it was still buggy the game froze 3 times out of the 3 times I tried to play it. Needless to say complete garbage. This is also not random dice. Players tend to give all their assets and money to a player of their choosing after they lose hope and this screws up the game for the rest of the players trying to play. Save your frustration and mental health for something else!!!.Version: 1.7.14

Very buggy, don’t waste ur time with thisThis game is fun to play..when it works. Always crashes. U can get one or two games without crashing out of every 10 attempts. It’s not worth paying for this until the bugs r fixed. The developers need to work harder to fix this. There have been no updates since I have had this game. Very disappointing..Version: 1.0.7

Developer PLEASE READLook, this is an awesome game. Truely a great classic, it’s been executed nicely, smooth gameplay, good graphics etc. how ever, online gameplay is nearly impossible. Not sure if it is laggy or people take for ever to complete their turn, we need a timer to stop quick flow of the game. LISTEN TO YOUR CONSUMERS! once this has been fixed and I can finally enjoy a good old game of Monopoly you will have my 5 stars..Version: 1.1.3

Gets stuck in Online Mode all the time!!!First of all, the “dice” is a completely rigged bs. The chances for triple doubles are extremely high when you put it against the odds from doing some simple math. After the building phase, everybody just goes to jail most of the time. It’s almost impossible to play with conventional Monopoly techniques because of the rigged chances of the dice, and having to deal with random obnoxious bots online, even if you chose to play with real people. This game has too many bugs and too few features. Online Multiplayer never works, they’ve got tons of bots and it always freezes, forcing all players to force quit the game. The animation is also way too long and it’s been frustratingly improbable trying to play with others online. And the fact that the game is server-sided does not change the developers’ minds to at least rent a competent server, because from what I’ve witnessed throughout the last few months, the servers have been utter trash. And the monopoly Hasbro has over this game makes this distillation of laziness and greed the only game of its kind on App Store, leaving you no choices but to buy it if you want to play this 100-year-old board game. It’s just ridiculous. oh yeah btw, you can’t trade anymore given that the new version has this freaking bug that player just automatically rejects your offer. what a genius feature.Version: 1.2.1

Nice graphics but game crashes and bad functionalityThe decisions you make in Monopoly often depend on where everyone is located on the board, but the programmers make the pieces disappear at extremely important moments! There is no leaderboard or ranking of any kind so each game stands alone. There is no penalty for quitting or taking ages to have your turn so sometimes you will sit there for five minutes to go and make a cup of coffee and watch TV. Also, unless you’ve ignored all the other reviews, this game crashes. Constantly. The graphics will entice you, but they were clearly made by a different group of people. The logic of how this game is programmed is ridiculous. That’s the programmers - the same people responsible for the game crashing ALL the time..Version: 1.0.8

Not a fair game at all!!!I love playing physical monopoly board game because whatever you get from dice you know it’s random and luck but this phone version definitely isn’t fair and all luck. when one particular player gets lucky they will keep getting lucky and keep missing other people’s property so they don’t have to pay rent but other players keep land on their property and I ve had so many times where other player have landed on chance and the card says to go to that lucky players property with lots of houses and the lucky player kept missing other people’s player houses for like 3 rounds. Or other player keeps going in jail so they never pass go to earn their salary which then they will not be able to build more houses or earn any money or they keep paying tax like 3 times in a roll I had in my experience. So the game chose its winner and keeps on giving them the right amount of dice! I regret paying £4 for this phone app!!! The irony is that you can say this is just life, someone always gets more luck but I m telling it doesn’t work like that! No one can be lucky all the time no one! You really need to fix this and make the app game fairer so not only one person keeps on getting lucky..Version: 1.3.1

That’s not right you need to read this 👇🏻What exactly we paying for man ??? I love the game but it’s not right that every time I want to play with a friend if the internet didn’t work for exactly 3 seconds the game frizz or not even the internet sometimes by itself start reconnecting and i’ll be waiting for few minutes and then exit the game I’m really mad you guys making money for bad software that’s not fair and i’m not interested anymore to play your game!! I need an explanation?!.Version: 1.0.11

Poor connectionIf you disconnect for even 1 second 99% of the time you can’t join back..Version: 1.5.0

Game is riggedI have little doubt that the dice in the game is rigged when playing with AI. I’m not always against dice rigging in these types of games if it makes the gameplay more fun/skill based but I don’t really think it does - this just annoys you. Perhaps they should have a feature like in Ludo Online where you can see rolls from each player and how often each player is getting a double or certain number. You have a 1/6 chance of rolling a double and you have around a 40% chance of rolling a 6,7 or 8 - it just doesn’t seem that the AI plays by those rules most of the time. I also think that others aspects could be rigged, I saw in one of my games the AI was sent to prison 3 or 4 times in a row, twice from chance cards in a row and then twice from the tile, where it was in a part of the game where it was favourable for it to be in jail. I also wish there were options to reduce the turn times for AI and also to change the amount of starting money. Just annoying really. Edit: Also there seems to be a really annoying bug where the game freezes when an AI needs to sell houses to pay for a large rent. This makes the game even more infuriating because it’s often unwinnable..Version: 1.2.4

Game freezes when a player quitsVery frustrating...more than one hour into a game with 4 online players and I’m clearly winning and when it gets to the next players turn nothing happens! The icons in the background are moving and the internet connection is good but I suspect the player quits the game because he is losing and that seems to freeze play. It’s happened on several occasions. An AI should take over when someone quits and it should be announced. Also, there is no opportunity to communicate with the other players. Too much “noisy” scenery and not enough attention to some key aspects of play. Also, why does the Community Chest or Chance card say “Go to Mayfair and if you pass GO collect £200? The only way to pass GO is if you were already on Mayfair which wouldn’t give you a card so there is NEVER a situation to pass GO on the way to Mayfair!.Version: 1.0.8

Stops at trading...This app is really bad. Waste of money..Version: 1.1.3

More like MoFLOPolyThis game should be sent directly to jail and not allowed to pass go. If you think getting “pay $115 for each hotel” is a soul destroying card when you’ve got a full street, try playing this game when it freezes after an hour of playing!! If this app were a woman I would take her out for dinner and leave her with the bill. The worst game I have ever played, 0/5. Will only continue playing it everyday because I have a big tournament to win against my friend otherwise I would delete it..Version: 1.1.3

The AI is unfairHow in the hell do you own everything except 5 locations, with properties on them and still lose? Not realistic at all!.Version: 1.3.2

Totally unplayableWell I have decided to leave a review for this entirely unplayable game. There is a freezing issue where it just crashes and you can wait however long you want it pretty much waits until you quit and start again. Now that’s not very useful in a long playing game. I’ve had it happen when I first rolled my dice, which isn’t as bad as when you have been playing for a while. To restart then. But one of the most annoying things about this game is the ability for other players to stall the game when it doesn’t go their way. Now there are many children out there who love to do this. During making an offer if the player pauses they can freeze the game as there is no countdown to get them to make an action. If there is a frozen player no bot takes over to at least allow some kind of gameplay, all their properties essentially become locked out to other players. The children can keep making these frozen players transfer offers which just stops the gameplay dead. Continually. And that’s the ‘quick’ version of the game as the normal game is less likelier to complete. So if you really enjoy being stressed and enraged and demoralised all at the same time, unlike me who thought about smashing my own phone which I haven’t even thought about in a very long time, then this is the game for you! P.S. Hope I didn’t pay for this game which I suspect I did since I love playing monopoly, I want my money back big time if I did! Crooks;-).Version: 1.0.7

GarbageThis game is terrible. The monopoly itself is enjoyable and similar to a real life board game, however every game I have played online multiplayer has crashed and froze. Really defeats the fun and leaves no motivation to play start another game as 30-40 minutes was just wasted playing one that crashes and you dont get to finish. Also no chat option when playing with friends which is pretty lame too..Version: 1.1.3

Trading stopped workingCan no longer trade while playing online.Version: 1.2.1

Dropped the ballThe game is good when it’s works. Most of the time it freezes in the middle of the game. Online is the same. You pay $6 but you only get 1 board to play on and you have to pay for the rest. The big issue is when it freezes, online, with friends online, offline. This shouldn’t be happening for an app you pay so much for..Version: 1.4.4

Face losing 90% on “easy” vs AIMy reviews seem to disappear so I’ll try one more time because this keeps happening in the game- maybe it needs approval first, but I’ve played years of monopoly including on computer like PlayStation. You should not have to fight to try and not be the first one bankrupt when on easy. It’s been a week now and I’m lucky if I win a game. It rolls me on tax cards back to back from the beginning of the game one game, but lands ai on all properties letting them get houses easily. Then another game I buy and trade to get basically all properties (except the blue ones this game I just finished) and bought every house and hotel to my limit, yet the ai player that lands on blue both times gets hotels right away and somehow goes through the whole board 2.5 times without landing on any of my houses properties and I say 2.5 because by then the computer lands me on both of his blue hotel properties in 2 turns bankrupting me of everything I owned which was pretty much all of the board. I win most of the time playing with our friends/ family and they don’t like trading at all, so that should give an idea of the difference. Good for friends bad computer experiences this week and I like relaxing before bed that’s why I play easy but this isn’t it..Version: 1.8.2

Good but could be better as nonsense of progression when you have won a couple timesLove the game but no senes of progression and then it gets boring .. I always seem to get the short hand when playing online and seem to loose against other players .. perhaps Other players are better , it can’t just be bad luck as I believe this game is pure based on chance and luck so shouldn’t make much difference when playing online as opposed to computer other than the fact that it more difficult to make trades with realy players who want to dominate the bord .. but that’s just my experience .its so annoying when someone takes ages and then the whole game is put on holt always seems to happen when I’m doing well eager to make next move . I agree with earlier review to add leaderboard and leagues like loads of other games I play so you can at least win a game and it goes towards something especially since you have to pay for it in the first place it would make playing allot more meaningful especially in lockdown.Version: 1.2.2

Big time riggedOK so let me start here. I had Parkplace boardwalk, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Pacific I had two houses on each of those properties on that whole side by trading early in the game no one else had owned a color group for 30 minutes. One person completely rejected all trades from another alleged person the entire game, even when it benefited him. So finally the person that ended up winning the game had a hotel on both Baltic and Mediterranean. The two alleged real humans never landed on my property, only myself, and the other person kept landing on the cheapest property to the point of having to raise money, and finally going bankrupt. Another thing is when you start out nine times out of 10. You are going to roll a seven and. It almost does not make sense to have any property on Boardwalk because the card is never picked. Now onto my next topic when people decide that they don’t want to play anymore, they stole the game they need to do something about. People who do that when they are sore losers please address these issues. I am not the only one that is complaining. Now onto my next complaint, I pay to have a certain iconic piece. occasions I ended up being the dog or the car what happened to the piece that I paid for monopoly. You owe me some money or we need to fix these issues..Version: 1.9.13

Enjoyable but…..I do enjoy this game, but have real suspicion that all is not as it seems. In a game just completed I have had hotels on two groups of properties and on no fewer that eight consecutive trips round the board one of my computer opponents landed either one space to the side or in the gap between those properties. That’s bad enough, but on three consecutive trips I made round the board I landed on one of the same opponent’s hotels, only to then throw a double 1 and immediately land on another. Sorry, but if they’re random rolls of the dice my name is Donald Trump. Another issue I have noticed - when I pull a card and have to advance to the nearest railway station, if another player owns it I have to pay double the rent. I believe that’s what the card says. I have noticed that the AI players if I am playing against the computer do not pay double. How is that fair and reasonable?.Version: 1.8.6

Money HungryI had the previous version which I paid for already although they were extremely cheeky with not updating but re-releasing the same game. Game is basic monopoly. - All the added graphics in the middle of the board is uncalled for and irrelevant. Paying £35 for the 'full' package is absurd. - They could have included some extra maps - They market the game with scenery's that cost real money and is misleading. If you're playing online - you cannot add friends to the party which means you'll need to play alone with friends and bots. Also, the game seems rigged online - certain scenarios ~ the odds of that happening whist playing on a board are so rare ~ But hey, a good pass time 🥴 The option of rejoining if disconnected is nonexistent - With all the money they've racked up, please improve the experience. It's the least we deserve. (Especially considering you've made me pay twice) - I should be entitled to a refund..Version: 1.8.12

A good game until…Love this game (playing solo). But it has major glitches when it comes to playing against people around the world. Find it especially happens towards the near end of the game where all spaces are taken (too much content I suppose?). I hand off to the next person with the ‘finished turn’ button and it freezes. There is no way to tell the next person and they get frustrated and we all have to quit the game. Such a waste of time. It’s definitly not my connection with 5G and full bars of wifi. In fact going in and out of the app helps (sometimes). Please fix this???.Version: 1.9

Poor quality for 6.99I like to play online and when the games not freezing constantly Im getting the same players offering me the exact same trades every play and have started to notice a pattern emerge, I feel like “Online” is not really online as I can only make offers in blocks of 5 eg $140,145 where I will get offers of weird numbers eg $138.Version: 1.0.7

Waste of time playing AIGame favours AI big time. Was playing my partner and she quit early as I was about to win so I carried on and she was replaced with AI player who came back with a basically impossible win? Makes it no fun when playing AI as every single move is basically in their favour especially when AI is loosing..Version: 1.9

[Up-Date] Heard back from developerThis is a great game, the UI is awesome and the gameplay makes the game more interesting. My big problem is constant freezing in the middle of online games. It’s like the server hosting the game just stops as the board UI (cars/trains/choppers etc) still carries on but the physical game just stops. The turn timer is a good function, but it still needs work as it doesn’t fully work always. Sometimes the timer runs out the the user is still holding up the game. I have paid for the game as well as the season pass, would like to see the above issues fixed first before adding new boards/tokens. [UPDATE] I reached out to Marmalade Studios and got the following response... “Unfortunately, the third-party service that we use for our multiplayer servers has been experiencing some problems caused by the heavy traffic load that it is getting due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This appears to be affecting some of our players who report being unable to play with friends, getting disconnected, among other network-related errors. However, players also report that these issues aren't permanent, and sometime later everything is back to normal. We are doing everything in our power to address this and will be releasing updates to our games throughout the coming weeks to try and minimize the consequences of connection drops. We are releasing an update this week that is supposed to help the disconnection and some performance tweaks.”.Version: 1.1.3

Multiplayer is a nightmare!I haven't been able to finish a single multiplayer game. The graphics are good..Version: 1.0.5

Game freezesThe game freezes mid play allllll the time. Sometimes I’ll be 40 minutes into a game and then suddenly I can’t end my turn or another player can’t end theirs and the game cannot continue. Going to get the same response as everyone else complaining. “Sorry to hear you are not enjoying MONOPOLY! our developers are working tirelessly”. Ok so hire different staff because clearly they can’t fix this long term issue.Version: 1.7.18

MehFor a well known game that you have to pay for, it’s very disappointing that you cannot play with friends without it constantly glitching..Version: 1.7.0

Game is very good but some major flaws(online pvp)The only minor thing I'd ask the devs to fix in the classic game mode is that rent cannot be collected in jail, as per the actual classic board game. However, the massive major flaws are the constant game freezes in at least 1/3 games which leaves the player no choice but to quit, wasting hours of time and also no exp to be gained!! Another huge flaw of the online game mode is if another player rage quits, and instead of outright quitting, just leaves their game on idle; there is no inactivity kick/ban! Therefore, every other player wishing to continue must wait for at least 30/40 seconds of the idle player’s timer going down which is extremely frustrating from experience. However, these flaws are easily fixable. So if Hazbro truly cares about the game experience and fixes this, it would get a 5-star rating from me as I love monopoly. Online has so much potential as finding other people who love wasting 2-3 hours on a game are hard to come by in real life!.Version: 1.11.6

Too busyUnlike traditional board games that you buy once and when taken care of will last your lifetime, you have to purchase electronic board games over and over again! I have purchased monopoly many times since 2005 for my computer and then iOS devices. I am repeatedly forced to purchase new versions through planned obsolescence by Hasbro changing who is licensed their game. In 2017, after upgrading my iOS software, my previous version stopped working. I again purchased the latest “official”version licensed by Hasbro—that time to EA. Like the previous versions, very little changed. With the most recent new iOS update, the EA version crashes only when you select play a new game. The version was the traditional board with traditional rules and specific optional rules that I liked. I once again purchased the “official” version (this version) to find something that is too busy and not traditional at all. Ironically, it has a photo that shows the traditional board, but that isn’t an option! None of the customizable optional rules reflects the choices of upping the starting dollar amount, setting a specific (higher) amount for free parking, etc., that allowed the game to progress at a faster speed. Extremely disappointed! I requested a refund and will try again in a few years when Hasbro licenses the game to someone else again under their planned obsolescence system..Version: 1.8.1

It’s functional but I expect more!Why is this so limited. I play on the Nintendo switch and PlayStation and both offer different playing mode like free parking and snake eyes. Nintendo switch offers goal game modes like magnet and property improvements. There needs to be custom game mode option for online play, in game texting or more comment choses. One thing different that this game offers is that you can check property information particularly the number of times the property has been landed on, which I really like while the other two platforms don’t offer that. Though it is ridiculous that these options can only be viewed while it’s your turn. This information should be available at anytime! Lastly, my biggest complaint That at times in rages me is these games tend to be one-sided and the dice rolls hardly ever seen random where is the same person keeps skipping over the same properties over and over and over again. Those individuals also seem to dodge taxes nearly the entire game game. I’ve seen both sides of this because I’ve been on both sides of it where is I’m the one dodging the properties and the taxes and other people get devastated..Version: 1.4.11

Waste of timeI would give this 4 stars if it had all boards but I’m giving it 1 star because the app crashes half the time you’re playing with friends. I can’t express how frustrating it is to be in the middle of a monopoly game & the “end turn” button disappear for you & everyone else you’re playing with. I’ll be requesting a refund from apple that’s for sure.Version: 1.6.21

Too slow,Too many pop ups , no need to zoom in and out, very annoying. no need to tell me it’s my turn every time.Version: 1.11.1

Endless glitchesPurchased to use “online with friends” function. In 3 days we are yet to complete an entire game without the game freezing, where the only option is to quit game. Disappointing as there’s no warning and no way of getting back to the game you were playing. The graphics etc are awesome however it’s not playable in its current state. DO NOT PAY FOR THIS GAME.Version: 1.0.7

Absolutely frustrating don’t waste your money!Hi. I absolutely love playing monopoly however with the old version and the new version; considering I paid to download the app it keeps crashing. Sometimes to fix this I have gone off the app and gone back on and it has worked and sometimes the game just quits for you and you are no longer able to play the game. The new version, which has had some upgrades I.e the card dealing at the beginning a bit like quick play when you use the actual board game. However this version crashes way more than the old one. I’m extremely disappointed as it has happened three times in one day. An absolute joke to be quite frank. I didn’t pay to play for ten mins for it to stop working! Please sort this out. I’m using an iPhone X so it can’t be that my device us an able to handle the game. Please sort it out. As soon as. As I’m sure I’m not the only one it happens to as other players in the game experience it crashing on their devices too..Version: 1.1.5

Game freezesThis game has a lot of potential but there’s work that needs to be done. The biggest problem is that the game randomly freezes and does not resume. I have not been able to complete a game. Please take care of this issue as soon as possible. Chat mode is also pretty useless. It would be much better if players were able to actually communicate with each through the app..Version: 1.2.1

Glitches Make it Impossible to Play a GameDisclaimer: I only play the online multiplayer option in this game (which makes sense judging by the reviews talking about the rigged game playing with A.I.). With that being said, I’ve found you’re lucky to finish 1 out of 5 games with how this game randomly loses connection and stalls/discontinues the entire game. The first few times I thought maybe I had a bad Wi-Fi connection, but this is the only app that indicates any sort of “connection” issue. The game will be going smoothly, then when you hit the ‘end turn’ button, the game goes stagnant and the other players think you’re just choosing not to play. For a game that you pay for, at the very least there needs to be an option to close the app and rejoin the game you were previously in. We all know monopoly is a pretty lengthy game, and the last thing this game needs is a glitch that makes you have to quit or restart after playing for an extended amount of time. I see this problem has been ongoing for a couple of years now, so I’d hope the developers could figure out a solution sooner rather than later. Who wants to pay for a game that not only takes a decent amount of time to play, but also wastes the time you spend trying to play it? 🤔.Version: 1.8.2

Waste of timeGreat game!! However, I bought this app so that I could play with my long distant friends, but we could never finish ANY game. The game has way too many bugs. It crashes and stop the game every time someone disconnect, which affects you and everyone else playing the same match. Getting disconnected is way too common, it happens when you get notification, when you click off the game for a split second, when you get a call, when you get a low battery warning, or poor wifi connection. The game can stop and crash at any point in the game. I wasted 2 hours playing a round just so it could crash mostly every single time. Out of the 35 games I’ve played, I only got through 7 of them. Mind you, I had to pay for this app. It’s ridiculous. DONT BUY THIS APP unless they start making changes and improvements to it. Also they do not have any type of communication system so you can’t talk to your opponents. That should be included in the game to communicate with your opponents, negotiate for trades, or just to simply remind your opponents to end the game. There are many more flaws that takes away the authentic feeling of playing the boardgame Monopoly. Once again, don’t waste your money and time on this app until they start making further improvements and changes to it..Version: 1.1.3

So Much Potential WastedGenerally speaking the game is ok But not worth the amount of money they ask for Online is good but has its flaws And big flaws at that Firstly There are no leaderboards whatsoever So playing is just for time wasting Or fun Or however way you wish to describe it Also Playing Online has greater risk of a freezing to the point where players have to quit the match And this can happen repeatedly Depending on the other players You cannot add people you meet to friends Nor can you search for them u less you have their personal details Also I have noticed a great deal of cheating going on For example Player A will not buy any assets and GIFT all money or assets to Player C Or that Player A will somehow some way Be able to predict where YOU will land For example buy mortgaging all assets to build on one card which Player B or D will immediately land on (but do this on a multiple of occasion as if Player A knew where the opposition was going to land) I love monopoly but it has BIG FLAWS So my advice to the developers Cut the prices down (because nobody is silly enough to spend £75 on a mobile game with bugs) Implement a leaderboard Apply better servers to counteract the Freezing of games Add moderators to sieve out unwanted cheats To make monopoly the best experience If you can do that then you are on to a winner If not meh to you and your half assed attempt.Version: 1.9.1

Disgraceful - make a game for Frozen instead!I don’t usually write reviews but I have to here as so much time can be invested in a game and then it freezes. There is nothing more frustrating than having spent a good hour, going around the board, building up properties and when you finally have a monopoly and players are about to do deals and buy houses and the games gets exciting and the thing FREEZES - game over! I really hope you can fix this. Otherwise, it is a disgrace that you represent the world famous game of Monopoly and Apple should ban you until you can ensure this problem is fixed (sometimes happens after a trade request) Rather than adding chat and other features, fix the freezes so players can finish a game!!!! Add - ‘good game’ in chat as option once sorted freeze issue. Make board slightly larger on screen, little small at moment on iPad screen. Give players an option to play without the detailed graphics if this means there is less chance of freezing. Graphics lite version to provide more chance of completing a game!!.Version: 1.1.5

Game breaks literally every gameSo I have had monopoly for like two weeks now, and the first week I was just playing against A.I. And getting a feel for the game, but recently I’ve been playing multiplayer. Now multiplayer is fun and all especially when I’m winning cuz I’ll have a few thousand and a row of hotels that bankrupt two other players. But then it’s always fun to just flash my wealth around and buy properties from the last player just so that it’s harder for them, but every time I do this (or just if I trade properties for money in general when someone’s bankrupt) it gets me stuck on the keep property mortgaged page. So I click unmorggage. Then I click it again. Then five minutes later I’m still spam clicking the button and I have to leave to solve the problem. I’ve tried everything I could but it always does this. Monopoly’s a great game and all but honestly I’ll probably just delete the game because it’s just annoying and frustrating when I have a hotel on boardwalk, all the railroads, and like 10 other hotels, while the other player has two properties left unmortgaged, then they win because the lousy game crashes on me. So just make sure you can actually handle monopoly on your device because I’m assuming it has something to do with that. Don’t wanna waste 7 dollars for a game you can’t even play..Version: 1.0.7

Monopoly App SucksDon’t waste your 5.50 on this app. As a matter of fact how do I get a refund. First off to play on line with friends you have to put in a code that is sent via another messaging app, not invited through monopoly. When you put the code in, 50% of the time it doesn’t work. Often the app doesn’t allow you back into the game if you leave for any reason. The game actually continues with the computer playing your turns if you step away for any reason. It’s monopoly, what’s the rush!! There should a way to chat with other players while watching play. Nope there isn’t!! So you can’t chirp or get chirped!! So many improvements needed!! A company like Hasbro has been around forever should be able to get it right!! Sorry, that’s my rant!!.Version: 1.1.0

Crashing and player inaction still issues in online multiplayerThis is a good game but the issues stop it from being a great game. I have played multiple online multiplayer games now and at least 50% have been stopped due to player inaction or crashing. This is really annoying especially mid way through a game when things are starting to get interesting. I have read that you have added a timer but this really doesn’t stop some players from holding up the game indefinitely. The crashing is disappointing and when an ai player takes over your turn it is hard to load back into the game and it doesn’t work all the time. I was prompted to write this review as a game I was in just crashed mid way through 😠. I think you need to adapt this for digital media the board game was great but if a player misses there turn or timed out the should be increasing punishments miss a turn > go to jail > miss a second turn > 200m fine > miss a third turn leave the game and property returned to the bank. Needs improvement for such an expensive app!.Version: 1.1.5

Could be betterI have Monopoly for iPad by EA (not available now) and its 10 times better than this. It has more settings, environments you can play in, the board is the uk version. Has no in game purchases either and best off all it doesn't want to know all your details. What is it with game developers these days feeding the likes of Facebook etc?? This just feels … and lacking! Yes the graphics are nice but to give just one board??? come on!!! Would be nice to remove the rubbish going on inside the board and be able to revert to the classic board layout. It also gets irritating when it wants to do a trade. Every third or fourth turn it will constantly bring up the same trade over and over again regardless of you hitting the “reject all” button. Managing properties is a pain. The other game was so much more easier and methodical. The dice rolls are suspect. How many times can you go around the board and always land on the tax squares or the computer piece will always throw just what it needs to miss your properties? On one game the computer actually made more money than what it started with by landing on Chance squares and always making money Going to auction in this game you are only giving the option of what is presented to you as the next bid. Normally increasing by $10 or $20 each bid. You cant manually enter a bid that you want. The other game by EA gives you that option. Honestly this needs work and NOT paid updates..Version: 1.7.6

Buggy multi, good soloJust as other players experienced issues with multiplayer, dices show up on top of other players considering buying property, which which keeps me from rolling the dices and play my turn. If free games can make online multi work, then a $6 app like monopoly with almost everything in app being paid content can certainly do it. Good game overall, but $$ should imply better quality, we are not talking about a super complex game here..Version: 1.3.1

Completely corruptHaving played this version of game for well over a year, it is without doubt that the game does not deliver the dice at random or fairly. An example of this without being biased due to the outcome of game result, is at the start of the game. I have now played hundreds of Monopoly games on this app and can predict that the first roll of the dice at the start of the game has a about a 75% probability that it will be a seven. Going into the results side of things, if the game wants you to loose, you’re going to loose. On several games I have been in a virtually guaranteed situation of winning and yet loose. A typical example was my last game where I had several streets with properties on and my last remaining opponent had Mayfair and Park Lane as a set and about 6 other properties, three of which were stations. Not only did my opponent somehow manage to build up to Hotels on PL & M, but also went around the board at least 5 times carefully landing on the safe spaces between all of my vast quantity of .properties. Conveniently for my opponent, my dice happened to land me onto his remote PL/M hotels three times on the trot. If you want a truly fair game of Monopoly, forget this awful app and play the board game for real..Version: 1.6.11

Good game but...... could be betterThis is a good game but the UK board should be free as it is more popular worldwide than the US one. If I was to purchase the extra UK board and I create the game, the board should be UK for everyone, including my friends.... but for some reason this is not the case and everyone needs to buy the pack. It costs more than the game just to get the board for your own country.. Also when you play multiplayer and someone leaves they should get replaced with AI instead of freezing the game and wasting in some case over an hour of people’s time..Version: 1.0.7

This game is fun, the AI ruins the games though.I have sunk a good 50 hours into this or so. What becomes apparent is the multiplayer is often not multiplayer. The multiplayer is set up for people to rage quit, leave if they can’t stay etc. In reality, this is a good thing which is what makes the online multiplayer version fun, accessible, and less time consuming. The issue is the AI as others have pointed out is beyond idiotic. It will give away a set card to a player for awful trades. If a player has $1000 and is seeking the final piece of their property set, you should milk them or deadlock them until they pay an exorbitant fee because that property set is likely a strong win condition. The AI however will sell these sets for base prices often. This turns a 30 minute strategically close game into a easy win. It also ruins the entire correctly competitive way to play this game. Utilities and railroads should be ignored or bought at below auction price. Certain colors are better than others. None of this matters when a human leaves without your knowledge and their AI placement begins doing really dumb things to the detriment of the joy of the whole game..Version: 1.9.6

Devs, please read thisI really love the game, I'm only giving it one star to get your attention, then I'll edit it to 5 stars On the next update, could you expand on the in-play messages? It really needs expanding, it's so frustrating the way it is, there is a real need to be able to communicate better with other players Could you add these? "Why?" For when someone who is near bankruptcy, and buys Park Lane, or just does something completely rediculous. "Why did you do that?" Would really come in handy "Maybe later" For when they want to trade a property, or make some form of deal, but you're not quite ready to do it. This would stop them getting angry, and not want to trade with you later, it would also let them know it's not completely out of the question, but there is a possibility Change "Hurry up!" To "Please Hurry" (No explanation needed here) Get rid of "hmmmmm" it's just gay, never used, and adds to more scrolling to find the message you want "Lol" this would be used heaps if you added it. Anyway, that's my two cents worth, let me know what you think.Version: 1.4.5

Good but needs improvementSo far me and my partner love the game however quite recently the online multiplayer modes glitch and the whole game freezes , we end up waiting for it to come back just to end up quitting , ruining the momentum. Please try and fix this bug, it happens almost 2/5 games played Other than that it’s great, but definitely on the expensive side of things. Should be an option to talk to players aswel rather than the one word responses.Version: 1.5.4

Playing With Bots SucksFun to play with humans, but with bots is like dumb. There seems to be unfair programming how the dice rolls, as if favouring the bots..Version: 1.6.21

Rigged dice breaks immersion and funUnfortunately as others have commented, there is something up with the dice and AI of this game. A early response from the dev says the dice are random, I suspect there is randomness but the AI can weight the dice so it’s more probably you land on numbers that fit the AI’s profile it has assigned to you. I agree with others that note it clearly chooses a favourite and absolutely punishes one player with the remaining players being given middling success. You can also expect if you have created your first houses to follow the field of dreams mantra. If you build it they will come. Overall it’s a real shame, everything else about the game is great. It’s fast, fluid and offers a micro transaction free experience. I would class the extra boards etc as DLC. There are no timers for instance. But like most monopoly computer games, the fun is short lived. Once you see the patterns and some truly unbelievable behaviour, you question every throw of the device being fixed, warranted or not and that just isn’t fun. If I were to bet, I would guess it is cheaper and easier to build an AI when it can control all aspects of the game than it is to create an AI that genuinely has to play and trade skilfully in response to truly random events..Version: 1.2.1

MultiplayerI feel like one of the main selling points for this game it’s the fact it offers multiplayer, online, with your friends. However be aware the game may decide to disconnect you from the game, for no apparent reason, at any time, and make the game void, even after 25-30 mins of the game. I genuinely like this game and I think it’s fun. But the fact that it it’s sporadic disconnection is seemingly constant (having played this as an online multiplayer for over a year), I wouldn’t buy it for multiplayer, online purposes. The fact it may cut out at any given moment does not make it worth it..Version: 1.6.14

Poor decisionsThis is a great game. However the best part about it is multiplayer unfortunately players make really really really bad decisions which can hand the game to another player very easily.Version: 1.5.0

Worth the priceLooks and plays nice. Doesn’t track stats or have achievements, and you only have access to one board unless you pay DOUBLE the game price PER additional board. Sorry publishers, you’re not getting more money out of me for something that should have been in the game in the first place..Version: 1.4.4

Unable to complete gamesI find it frustrating that whenever I’m playing with friends and decide to open a seperate app (to read a convo in instagram for example) briefly, I get kicked out of the game and am unable to rejoin the room, effectively wasting 1+ hour of my and my friends time on a game that wasn’t even close to finishing. So many rounds have been utterly wasted due to a family member suddenly calling one of us, etc. Overall this game would be so much more worth it if it didn’t forcefully disconnect you from a game just for tabbing out of the app for a split second..Version: 1.0.9

I never write reviews but this problem NEEDS fixing.FUMING rn. this game is so fun, it’s vibrant, the animations are cool, it’s pretty easy to understand and navigate for someone who’s never played monopoly before (me lol) but the whole reason i bought this game was to play with my friend. when we’ve used that mode, play online with friends, the game has glitched EVERY SINGLE TIME and we’ve had to end it. we’ve played it together 5/6 times and not once has either of us won because we’re forced to quit about 45 minutes into the game!! it’s infuriating. i can’t remember all of the glitches, but 1) was that i was trying to do a trade, but i cancelled it and then it wouldn’t let me press any other buttons except for the trade button and the add houses button. didn’t give me the option to end my turn even after waiting over 5 minutes so we just couldn’t continue. 2) was it just wouldn’t let me end my turn, i was pressing the button for it, the screen would go grey (like it does when switching players) and then the end turn button came back. OVER AND OVER AGAIN. i’ve had enough. i’ll still be using the single player mode as practice but i am not impressed with this game and cannot believe i let it scam me out of a fiver🙄.Version: 1.9

Not worth itWhere to start.. I used to own this app before this redesign and the game used to be SO much better now it just feels like a cash grab thru all the micro transactions. I will admit I liked the idea of “multiplayer” because it’s always more fun playing against people than bots.. Except I quickly realized multiplayer is filled with bots. It’s very easy to tell when you’re playing with a bot based off their trades. They will easily let go of the last color property to complete someone else’s for an almost idiotic trade or before their turn ends they will send you a trade request at lightning speed. You have to play the game to understand how easily this will stand out. Moving onto actually playing the game as much as the devs say it’s random it’s absolutely not. I’ve owned an entire quadrant of the map before and somehow the entirety of the game no one manages to land on any property. It’s almost funny just watching how obvious it is to quite literally own from GO all the way to orange and people somehow magically always manage to dance around your hotels and land on community chest, chance, income tax, etc. Very frustrating and definitely has a rigged feel to it. Save yourself the time and frustration and don’t buy this game no redeeming qualities..Version: 1.7.18

Enable a boot buttonHi Monopoly Team, with your next update please enable to kick a player out of the game. Some players don’t take there turn and the game just freezes it would be enhanced if after 10secs they would be booted and just have a bot continue in their spot. When someone doesn’t continue the game it’s frustrating as it’s all just wasted time and the game freezes. Please enable to boot these players. Thank you for your time as this is a great game!.Version: 1.7.2

Minor issue absolutely ruins itWhy should I ever have to pay £4.49 to play on an English (UK) monopoly board? When I bought the game in English currency, in my English home from the English region of the AppStore. 4.49 for a grouped together pack of several countries’ boards is a joke when you’re only going to use one of them is an absolute rip off when it amounts to changing the name on the board tiles, not even a different board or two to sweeten the deal. It’d be fine if you STARTED with your home region’s board and then could purchase the others in such a pack but I have no ties to the American board and it means nothing to me and after having shelled out for the game I’m not going to nye on five quid for a tile pack in a cost of living crisis. I want a refund or a fix if possible and I’ll sort my review. Predatory DLC that. Edit: respect to the devs though still, don’t want anyone thinking I’m slandering them for what was most likely a publisher decision. The game runs fine, the dice physics are fun and I don’t agree with various other negative reviews suggesting the game is rigged, nor did I experience any crashes. But decisions like not being able to use your own country’s monopoly board without shelling out near enough a fiver are anti-consumer and it’s toxic to the business so I’m gonna need a change or a refund..Version: 1.8.0

Need to have an UpdateSeriously, guys we bought this app to play, but kinda off lagging all the time. If u receive any call in btw the whole game gone… if your internet gone for a while that’s it even u r about to win u will be kicked out of the game.. need serious attention...Version: 1.6.15

FrustratingIt’s so frustrating the game keeps going while we all stay waiting when someone leaves the game.. couldn’t you design it where they just leave and everything gets split between the players that are left playing. So annoying.Version: 1.4.4

Lots of bugsI wonder if the multiplayer version of this games was tested properly. The amount of bugs is insanely high. 1. Sometimes a player exits the app while in its the players turn and that game hangs forever 2. Why can I see other players cash during a multiplayer game? 3. A player purchases a land and the players color code does not show under the land except you exit the app and return The list is endless..Version: 1.1.3

The most frustrating game everA board game needs to have random dice rolls but this game does not. The is nothing more frustrating then have hotels on almost every property and still just watch the other plays go around and around the board never landing on you. Always the space before in between on chance or the space just after. Mean while you keep landing on the only property they have until all your houses are gone. The games winner is almost predetermined before the game even starts. There is nothing fair about this game what so ever and is more frustrating then fun. Save your money. This isn’t worth playing for free..Version: 1.5.0

Should support more languagesThe game is fine, but should support extra languages like Arabic..Version: 1.4.9

Too Random - Poor Board Game DesignThe developers are regular assuring you that the game is not rigged or random, but that is the issue with the game. Board games in reality are fixed in many ways. For example, a deck of cards with a discard pile ensured that every card in the game will be played before a player can draw a second copy of any card. This also ensures equal odds of getting a card. This app takes the simpler approach of randomly generating the card on each draw. This means you may draw cards like “Speeding Fine” two or three times in a row, while never pulling “Advance To...” cards of any kind. The odds of card drawing seem to also favor the weaker cards. The developers assure that’s not true, but an easy way to restore faith would be to have the cards work with an actual deck and discard system instead of random generation upon each draw. To me, the purpose of this is to mimic the board game, if you wanted to change the fundamentals of the game then a different game mode would be nice. A “Randomized” mode could be fun along with the original two, but I would want the “Classic” mode to run like the classic board game. Otherwise, the game is functionally okay. Some cards do not work as intended, like cards that require paying between players, but most major bugs have been worked out. TL/DR The old app was much better.Version: 1.3.1

Has the potential to be a great game! But dice roll IS NOT RANDOMThe graphics and UI on this game is amazing. Yes there’s the issue with the app freezing on the odd occasions but that’s not the thing that spoils the gameplay or fun for me. It’s the not so randomness of the dice. On too many occasions I’ve been suspicious of whether a dice roll has been determined before you roll. I’m a computer programmer and I don’t see why this function for a dice roll is not made random?! Just use the rand() function for whatever language the game is written in to allow a truely fair experience otherwise you wonder what’s the point in playing as negotiating techniques and strategy count for nothing. Fix that issue and we’ve got a REALLY good game. Otherwise I’ll go back to POGO and play monopoly there with friends. LETS SEE IF THE DEVELOPERS REALLY DO READ ALL THE COMMEMTS FOR REVIEW AND DECIDE TO RESPOND BACK. OR ARE THEY PICKING AND CHOOSING WHO TO RESPOND TO?🤔 Update the app soon please, I’ll be waiting and watching 👀.Version: 1.1.3

AwfulI Bought the App one Month ago , I tried to play with it , but unfortunately it wasn’t work ,it’s just come until the Loading… part ! I tried to uninstall and reinstall it more than 40 times , My iphone is 12 pro max , it doesn’t the iOS or the cellphone problem , I report that problem with the company, i sent so many emails to them , but they told me we didn’t have any same problem, so we don’t have any solution for this. I paid for it, I can’t play with it , and they don’t care at all ! It is unfair..Version: 1.6.3

Devs say not rigged. I say YES!I have played enough games vs AI now to know that the game’s dice rolls are either not random at all and the events that transpire are a poorly written “random simulator” rather than an actual “random number generator” for dice. Stop trying to pull the wool over your customers’ eyes. There have been an immense amount of games where either me or one or more of the AI have an OVERABUNDANCE of luck. ESPECIALLY on easy. This doesn’t feel like raw game play at all, and if you don’t hog properties the AI will make the “perfect deals” and wind up with a monopoly within the first round or two. This is on EASY. I tried “Hard” difficulty and all it seemed to do was diminish my LUCK and not make dealing with AI more difficult. My chance cards were likely busts, I always landed on their properties while they literally would miss mine over multiple runs each round, and I always found myself in jail. You may as well get rid of the dice. I will be uninstalling this rip off as soon as I am done writing this P.S. don’t argue with your customers with passive aggressive comments like “I’m sorry that you feel the game is rigged, we promise it’s not”. When it clearly is depicting something that is clearly not actually happening. Shove it. Don’t bother replying. Tired of being ripped off..Version: 1.4.4

Not for meI loved Monopoly when I was a kid, but the way that they’ve done this game just kind of ruined it for me. First off you buy the game, but then pretty much 90% of the options are hidden behind a Pay wall. And they push it very overtly, giving you countdown timers for “discounts”. Want to change the name of your player, pay us money. You want to use a different board, pay us money. Don’t think of buying this game like you’re actually buying the game, it’s more like you’re paying the fee to enter the arcade to spend more money to play the games or have the full experience. I also noticed that this is not really a game of chance when you play it on this app. I’ve noticed my “luck” drastically changes depending on the status of the game. Such as last time I played it. After I had built some houses, I land on community chest and I get the card to pay for each house and hotel, then immediately land on chance and get the same card. Then land on chance yet again and get a go to jail card. I even went so far as to track all the dice rolls. There’s a known probability distribution for rolling two dice. I tracked hundreds of dice rolls and found that it does not follow a two dice roll probability distribution. The game will give you the dice roll that it wants to give you, it is not a normal dice roll. It will give you the chance and community chest cards it wants to give you, it is not random. It takes all the fun out of monopoly for me..Version: 1.11.1

Stupid bot gameNot having a playerbase is not reason enough to scam your players with bots.Version: 1.5.3

Programming is a messShould have spent more time fixing bugs rather than 3D - every 7 or 8 games the game freezes (usually when someone goes out by trading away all their properties). It’s very frustrating to commit an hour or more then not be able to finish the game. Fix the bugs please!.Version: 1.6.3

Great games, serious issuesLove monopoly and it’s a shame that this app has such big problems. 1. 70% of the time on online mode, game gets half done, then gets stuck on one person rendering the game unplayable. Please fix. If someone quits, replace them with AI and let the other users know. 2. For a game with a reputation for taking so long, each movement and animation takes far longer than it should. These should be as quick as possible to facilitate fast playing. Nothing worse than a slow game. 3. No progress can be made or levels or challenges or any effort to make the game a little bit engaging. No matchmaking with similiar players. Has lots of potential but just poorly designed..Version: 1.0.7

Predictable and unrealisticThe graphics are good, but you have to pay for the game to start and then that only opens the most basic game. If you want different boards or pieces you have to pay more. Not that big if a deal, but the computer players have logic of a 4 yr old and will trade things no one in their right mind would trade - even on hard setting. Also, the computer dice rolls are a joke and they constantly roll numbers that conveniently land just after your properties or at a safe spot inside of them (chance/community chest). I paid attention to 10 games with 3 other computer players and every game I had to pay for houses/hotels and the computer not once. Also, I’ve never landed on Boardwalk so much in a real game as I do when the computer has 4 houses on them. In fact, it isn’t until the computer has houses and then I can’t miss boardwalk. If the plan is to entice the user to spend more money, it has the opposite effect on me. I’d imagine I’ll be deleting this game and finding something else. Play at your own risk. I guarantee you will be as annoyed as I have been. Developers need to do a better job of trying to make this game more realistic.Version: 1.9.3

Non-natural gameplayIf you play single player against three computer opponents, it becomes apparent very quickly that rolls are predetermined to ensure all the properties get bought/auctioned efficiently. It can keep the game flowing quite quickly, but this doesn’t seem fair and natural in the true spirit of the game. Also, you can suddenly snatch up the two blue properties, risk your money to put houses on them, and after three rounds, have no opponents land on those properties. This has happened multiple times and its like the game punishes you for putting all your chips in one basket when statistically it can work in your favour some of the time. Play the physical game with actual peers to experience a proper game. Play the app if you want to challenge yourself against all odds..Version: 1.8.9

Report button?The dive seems like it’s rigged to make you play longer but conspiracy theories aside, allot of people just grief the game when they get mad.. they transfer everything they own to the opposition just so you don’t win which is really irritating and unfair. Grieving the game in this way shouldn’t be allowed but there is no report button. Also when players leave, rather than disconnecting them, they continue to play but are replaced by a bot. It should be made clear wether I’m playing against a human or a bot rather the game just goes on. If someone leaves then they should just be removed from the game. It’s fun to play when i know I’m playing against a real person and people aren’t able to just ruin the game. Unfortunately this is long possible in many games..Version: 1.10.0

Multiplayer still buggedThe game looks great and it’s fun. You can play without getting into micro transactions. About one of every 3-4 multiplayer games gets buggy and freezes, often during / after trade offers. It’s frustrating to spend 30min getting the game flowing to have it freeze on you..Version: 1.11.2

Unauthorized ChargesThey will give you free things and charge you later without a subscription. Avoid this app at all costs..Version: 1.11.3
