Monopoly - Classic Board Game for Negative User Reviews

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

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

DisappointingNo option to save online game progress No communication in online gameplay Game crashes almost every online game Overall very disappointing as this could be an excellent game.Version: 1.0.10

Fun, but disappointing!!!Expect disappointing results in single player games against AI. You will get mostly low dice rolls while the AI’s will get high rolls and buy up all the property. Most of the time they will refuse to do trades with you unless you offer something ridiculous that could cost you the game. However, they will willingly make ridiculous trades with each other like a railroad for Park Place. The dice rolls are obviously not random as they are in favor of the AI. If you build houses they will conveniently miss all of your properties especially if they are low on funds. Meanwhile you will land on their properties with houses, get the cards that charge you for houses, or get the cards that charge you money. The AI get almost all of the cards that give you free money. I’m sure this is fun irl for a pass and play, but if you’re looking to play single player expect the game to be against you. It is possible to win against the AI, but it’s frustrating when you have to play against a three man team instead of three players. Lastly, how the heck does this game have 4.7 start overall??? I read through a lot of reviews and most of them give 1-3 stars. I don’t understand how that works unless the first version of this game was actually fair and playable..Version: 1.6.21

GlitchesGreat game but glitches far to much and disruptive to the game had to cancel many games and start over because it glitches.Version: 1.1.3

Highly Necessary Additions NeededHi! I’d like to start off by saying .. this game is missing a lot! It felt very unsatisfying to win an online multiplayer game and not receive any sort of prize as a reward. The dissatisfaction alone was able to push me away from wanting to play the game totally. There is a dire need for some form of level-up system, coin transaction, and prizes. I’d like to believe that this app has not even scratched the surface of it’s potential to be incredibly fun, and highly social. The only customization is being able to select what you play as before a game and what map you use, but what about having your own profile and being able to search up other people? What about leaderboards to see other friends or leagues that you’re able to participate in? The menu is so bland, and it is so very clear that a lot more can be added to make it much more engaging and addictive. Personal daily challenges & achievements. And if it’s all done right and very cleanly, I might even consider the unthinkable: Paying for some of the maps and tokens. Because I would be THAT much engaged in it..Version: 1.2.2

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

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

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

Too many lagsToo many lags when playing online and your playing for an hour and 15 minutes almost at the end and it crashes, so annoying but good game.Version: 1.1.3

BuggedDon’t often review but when you own almost every square on the board and the AI seems to always miss your square the game is definitely rigged.Version: 1.7.4

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 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

Online multiplayerIt’s interesting that the “people” you verse in the online multiplayer appear to be robots.... Their continuous trade attempts match exactly what the robots do in single player......Version: 1.0.5

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

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

Graphics are great but lacking in smoothness of playI purchased this app yesterday, whilst I love the monopoly graphics the game freezes on numerous occasions, making you feel like the real gamble is whether you’ll get to the end of the game. If they could sort this app out that would be great as I have paid for this ‘experience’.... I would not expect this level of glitching from a paid for game compared the smooth ability of free games! I would also like to see some profile interface...whilst winning a game online is great, there are no incentives or rewards for your efforts. It simply says you have won and that is it. There is no ‘leaderboard’ to show many games you have won, there are no daily incentives to revisit the game etc. All progress is lost. I would suggest that if you win a game/not that a first prize, 2nd prize etc of ‘monopoly money’ gets saved to your game play bank. These can be used to purchase rare pieces, new boards etc. For a game that you can spend an hour playing, it’s gutting to not have anything to show for at the end of it! Get these things right guys and you’ll make monopoly one of the best gaming platform apps going! 🙂👍🏻.Version: 1.0.7

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

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

Ruined by Scripted dice rollsI admit, I have a relatively limited knowledge of programming and app development. That being said I have noticed the game is incredibly scripted when it comes to dice rolls and the AI. First game I played I won easily, hardly ever landed on any AI properties where as they could only seem to land on mine. Incredibly dull but still a win is a win. However since that first game I have attempted to play 8-9 more times and have noticed simple patterns in the dice rolls and the AI. No matter what difficulty setting you set the AI as with normal monopoly it’s all about luck. For the last 4 games the same AI Character has managed to collect atleast one property set before they’ve finished the first lap of the board. Then without fail the player will land on said property for the next 2-3 rounds. By this point it is a losing battle. Wouldn’t mind if the dice was true random but the patterns are quite easy to identify after around 5 games. Waste of money.Version: 1.4.4

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

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

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

Yet another bug!Considering I had to pay for this app, it is annoying and frustrating that the app constantly freezes, usually during a long game where one of the bot players has to raise money by selling a hotel. The app then freezes and you have to abandon the game. This happens all the time! Please fix it. Other buyers beware. Update 20/08 - thank you for fixing the freezing issue. The game is playable again! Further update 26/08 - it has now developed another fault, the same as the original freezing issue when hotels are sold, but the bug instead of freezing the game, causes all hotels and houses to be removed from the set instantly, whether they are needed to be sold to pay the rent or not. In addition, these ‘disappeared’ houses and hotels are NOT returned to the pool so are lost for the rest of the game. Again, it makes playing the game pointless: Please fix this!.Version: 1.2.5

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

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

Upgrades requiredI remember playing this game online many years ago and they had incorporated a rating system for online play. It would add reward to players to have a rank for their achievements..Version: 1.7.0

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

Don’t waste your money - game freezesThey really need to fix this app before continuing to charge for it. Yes the graphics look nice, but what use is that if the game can get stuck at any point? We had been playing an ‘online with friends’ game for over two hours, when one player was kicked out and the AI that took their place wouldn’t move. There was nothing we could do and we had to abandon the game. Looking down the reviews, this is clearly a bug that has been known about for months and months without being fixed. It is pretty galling having to pay £16 for 4 people to play together for an app the makers know is broken. If the app worked, it would be a marginal recommend. It’s a fairly fun and faithful recreation of the board game, but some of the graphics slow down the gameplay and the system for making deals is less than intuitive..Version: 1.1.3

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

I really want to love this!!Monopoly has always been a fav since I was old enough to understand. But I don’t usually spend any money on apps unless I know I’ll use it. Well, I played a few days straight while stuck at home for a bit at Christmas. The AI is ok but it was playing against other people I was looking forward to! I won the first two times and thought that I was gonna really love playing this. As I played more and more I noticed some frustrating things. I don’t have to win all the time and make enough mistakes to know why I’ve lost. But the inconsistency on the dice roll for all players is a predictable algorithm with no actual randomness. When I pay $4 I don’t except the world but I would have liked the opportunity to earn thru winning, other boards and pieces. No leaderboard or way to keep stats in this digital world was a surprise. I’m hoping for change as my thoughts seem to be repeated over and over again in the reviews. I’d love to be able to get my friends involved but most would be upset paying for something with some of the missing options. Thanks.Version: 1.4.4

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

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

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

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

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

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

So fun, could be 5 stars thoughI like playing monopoly and it’s a fantastic game. But I get so frustrated when I’ve played an online match for 30+ minutes and “worked hard” to build my fortune to have some sore loser trade out to the other remaining player for $1. Shouldn’t be patched to avoid trying to rig it by underselling everything before you land on a space you know will bankrupt you. If it was I would’ve given 5 stars..Version: 1.6.18

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

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

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

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

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

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

It messes with the probabilityIt’s going to cheat and mess with the probability of the rolls to make it more difficult to win once you figure out the optimum strategy. He last game I played I had 2+3houses on boardwalk and park place 2,3,2 in n the reds, hotels on the light blues and hotels on the slums plus two rail roads. It should have been over when I got hotels on the light blues but each time the other player passes your 3 lot hotels that’s a lost coin toss. The probability has gone as bad at 1/128..Version: 1.7.4

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

The odds are stacked against youI dont know why they do this, but they will rig the game in favor of the AI. It got to the point where I can accurately predict my rolls. If I own 80% of the board, they will only land on the other 20% and that happens 100% of the time. The computer makes trades amongst themselves that aren’t fair, they’re only helping each other get sets to knock you out of the game. If you have hotels, the AI WILL NOT LAND ON THEM. Only between your hotels. It’s laughable at how predictable it is. If a 6 will land you on their hotel, you will roll that 6. I had a property of every color in my last game to ensure no one can build, so what happens? Yup, I land on their railroads only. So what do I do? I buy one of their railroads for a ridiculous price. The next turn, the computer acquired a railroad from another computer to re up the price. I know what you are thinking, why wouldn’t they buy that railroad prior so that they had all 4? Nah, only when I take the railroad away are they ALL OF A SUDDEN interested. It’s insanity how much they fix the games in favor of the computer. I have no clue why, we’ve already paid for the game, but they do. It’s painfully obvious. You’re welcome for the money I spent..Version: 1.4.4

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

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

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

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

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

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

Weighted DiceHere’s my 2 scenarios 1: I had a the yellow and brown color set with hotels on each. Everyone went bankrupt except this guy named Budwiser and I, he owned the orange color set only with a few mortgaged properties. I go around the board and each time...I land on his orange then get sent to jail. I went around 4 times and each time I landed on his color sets. He goes around the board 6 time while I was in jail and only once landing on my brown color set... 2: I owned the brown color set once again, while I passed go I landed on income tax. Rolling again due to doubles, rolling I land on the chance. I prayed to not draw the advance to st Charles place but my prayers went unanswered. I drew the card and payed my rent from a hotel on st Charles. Having to mortgage everything. My next turn I really prayed to god to not roll a 2 or a 3 due to them having hotels...I roll a 2 and go bankrupt. My properties went untouched the whole game after putting houses down...I really am not the one to point fingers at rigged games but...when I see people rolling past a whole section of houses and landing on chance and free parking every time...I don’t have much of a choice to believe it’s something more than bad luck. A refund would be great but not likely due to the greed of corporations now a days.Version: 1.3.1

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

Bad glitchWhen you get far into the game and start buying houses and having decent sets the game glitches and the end turn button keeps coming back up every time you click it. The whole screen freezes and won’t let the other player have there turn as the whole game freezes and you pretty much have to end the game. It’s so annoying as this games great but annoying to play because every time you get in a good spot or make a good trade the whole game has to end. Please fix it asap so I can continue to play the game!!!.Version: 1.4.8

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

Online issuesNeeds to fix the bug that freezes in the online player mode. You can’t even play a round without it freezing..Version: 1.1.3

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

Can’t login after update plus AI sucks.After the new Enchanting forest update, I can’t seem to play a game. Done the delete and redownload, doesn’t work. AI is rigged. I had 2 housed properties, everyone else didn’t have one. Obv the game would’ve ended in me winning but the dice prolonged it long enough so that they would never land on my properties as I paid 200s to the railroad..Version: 1.7.0

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

Game LagYou pay $7 and the game can never come to a end because of the amount of lags there are in this game. Not enough codes in the app to reduce the lag and when you’ve almost finished the game it will freeze and waste your whole time playing. Not worth $7 at first I didn’t even think it was the real monopoly. Plus you pay $7 but you have to pay $8-15 for any other map/board Don’t recommend, get the original board and relive your childhood. Please fix these bugs and update version.Version: 1.1.3

Lost connectionMany times I played this game for almost win and lost connection then reconnecting but can't join again.Version: 1.1.3

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

Losing Players are TOXIC!Can we please figure out a patch to where players who are losing CANNOT stop the flow of gameplay but staying stuck in an untimed Menu? It’s so unfair to the rest of us who are enjoying the game..Version: 1.0.7

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

Extremely annoying glitchesMost games I play, never finish. Randomly the game will stop moving, no one will play their turn and it says it’s reconnecting on next turn, but never does. If you close app and go back in, it kicks you from game completely, no warning. It ruins the game that could be so good so much. I can’t believe I paid 6 bucks for a game that doesn’t even work. Only about 1 in 5 games do I actually get to finish, there is always terrible glitches like this..Version: 1.1.6

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

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

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

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

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

Not up to standard.This game is full of game-breaking bugs and issues. I literally just played a game where no players could accept any trades at all — they were all immediately and automatically rejected. Imagine a game where you could not make any trades. It would not be able to end. And the game before that, there was a visual glitch that made the game very harder. In this game of Monopoly, each owned property has a coloured label to show who owns it. One property, the middle orange one, failed to even show its coloured label upon its purchase, so I couldn’t even see who owned it, or if it was even owned at all..Version: 1.2.1

UnfairI have played this game so many times throughout isolation I have picked up that a players chance on winning is decided by the game. There will be one player that lands on numerous properties giving them and advantage then there will be a player that is doomed from the start. Always landing on tax squares, or squares with no property. Not to mention half their time spent in jail. On occasions where I have been the dud player all the other players have made it around the board countless amounts of time giving them 200 at each pass. Where I have yet to make it around the board once due to constantly landing on go to jail. This just makes it highly frustrating(when you are the dud player) otherwise it can be enjoyable. I think it would be a nice extra if there was a chat box so players could communicate with each other..Version: 1.1.3

Who is Race CarPlayed this game for an hour with my grandson then he was locked out of the game and someone called Race Car appeared. Not good enough. I paid for this game for myself and two grandchildren. A waste of money.Version: 1.1.3

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

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

So much potential!!!I’ve spent a fair few hours playing this game and thoroughly enjoy it when it’s running as it should, great graphics and very smooth. However I have the same problem as a lot of the other reviews; the game suddenly just freezes sometimes and doesn’t allow you to continue, basically completely voiding that game and infuriating you in the process. The other issue I’ve had is the game sometimes doesn’t give you the option to put houses on some colour sets (e.g I had the reds and yellows, I was allowed to put further houses and hotels on the reds but not given the option to add further hotels to the yellows) I can’t think of any reason why apart from it just being a bug which I Imagine can quite easily be fixed. Fix this please guys!!!.Version: 1.1.3

Room for improvementsI love monopoly and I was upset when they discontinued the previous app. Then I see this one and has better features such as playing with friends around the world. Perfect. However, I would really like if the maximum players was upped to like 6-8 so more friends can join in and make it feel more real ! There are a few glitches like the whole leaving by mistake and not being able to join back to the game you were already playing ! Bummer. There is also something off about throwing the dice, seems premeditated. I would prefer if we could move the dice while touching the screen just like the old app. Felt like the player determined the roll and not the computer system behind the game. All I have to report for now..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

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

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

Game crashesI hate playing online games and having the game pause and not go any further, I paid for the game I shouldn’t have to pay any extra $50 for more boards when the game keeps disconnecting.Version: 1.1.3

BadDo not purchase. Game freezes constantly and we were almost an hour into playing. Absolute let down.Version: 1.1.3

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

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

Freezes!I like to play online and about 6 of us have paid for this so we can all play online but it freezes and we can’t even finish the game. So annoying and a waste of money. You’d think with the number of complaints they’ve gotten they would have fixed it by now. Should of read the reviews before buying..Version: 1.1.3

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

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

So riggedThis game is so rigged in many games I’ve landed on park place and board walk on every turn around the board I went from having everything except those two properties to being bankrupt it’s mathematically impossible to land on it 3 times in a row.Version: 1.7.1

Love this game ..... butReally have enjoyed this game, however when it comes to playing online against friends it does not work! You cannot save a game and play in a turn about way - frustrating. And even if you decide that you will complete a game, it freezes!! What a pain! If this was fixed it would be 5-stars for sure and I would be getting more family and friends into playing it!.Version: 1.1.6

Flawed but funThe single player game is fun for awhile, and certainly worth the initial investment, but the key to the longevity of the game is the multiplayer mode. This is fun, too, but you have to be prepared for some disappointment. Currently, there are bugs that prevent games from being finished, and these bugs can happen after you’ve played for 30 minutes or more. For example, if somebody owes money, and they try to make another deal to raise more money, this seems to stop the game. It seems to lose track of whose turn it is (and who is still owed money). Sometimes, if someone refuses all your deals for that turn, it ends your turn for some reason, but the End Turn button is still shown. Pressing End Turn at this point stops the game. If you are low on battery life and get a battery warning, it can disconnect you from the game. Also, players sometimes stop playing, and there’s no warning or way to resign without stopping the game for everyone. In spite of these flaws, it’s a fun game, but there’s room for improvement. Personally, I’m waiting for these issues to get addressed before investing more money in a Season Pass..Version: 1.0.10

Not goodWhen playing online the game freezers. Waste of time. Never been able to finish a online game. Reason why I brought it was for online. 1 star.Version: 1.4.5

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

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

TERRIBLY UNFAIRI paid £3.99 for a game expecting it to be good. I would like to make a complaint that the dice is completely unfair. It singles out one player sending them to jail 3 times in a row and then allowing other players to land on all the good things. It leaves one or two players with 1-3 propertys and the other players with the whole board. Today I played a game when I was winning because a player went bankrupt because they landed on my property and all of a sudden the money they owned and cards were all transferred to one other player when it should have been me that took it all. I left the game knowing this was unfair, the game is severely unfair and badly created with rubbish dice that had no random number. Each game has the same pattern for each player and it’s always played the exact same. I’ve played loads and only ever won once. It’s terrible needs to be fixed..Version: 1.4.4

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Frustrating awful gameIt has been fixed so you lose when playing with the computer by conveniently not landing on your hotels ...but you always land on its ...Version: 1.3.1

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

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

Super Glitchy!Anytime throughout the game it locks up and freezes! Such a disappointment after playing most of the game and not being able to finish. A waste of money! Don’t buy!.Version: 1.1.3

Freezes a lotThe last two times I’ve played a game, it froze half way through which was incredibly frustrating especially since I had hotels on my properties and nobody else had a property set yet. I think it froze because when it was my turn, I tapped on one of my properties to view how much would be paid if someone landed on it, then it just wasn’t responding. I also think the chat should at least give the option to say ‘I’m stuck’ or something so other players don’t get angry at you. I also think the game should allow game styles like choosing whether you wait till you’ve gone through the board once before you can buy properties because that’s how I have always played in real life.Version: 1.4.5

Crashes before starting game after updateFun game, but new update makes it unplayable. Would prefer a fix, but will accept refund if fix is impossible..Version: 1.7.0

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

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 when it works..It is a good game but only when it works, it freezes a lot and find yourself waiting a lot of the time. Once it works itself out your go has automatically been played for you! Also you don’t have to option to play with friends and other random people which is annoying. I’ve found myself trying to enter a game at the same time to get into a lobby together, which doesn’t always work. I do wish you could change the rules and play with friends and other players and not with just computers. The free parking rule is a great idea however I can’t play it with others and my friends. Please will you look at these issues if possible it would make the game so much better😊.Version: 1.1.3

Great, but buggyI’m a big fan of monopoly, always have been. On the surface, this game brings back the nostalgic classic board game we all love. But, it also comes with bugs. One majorly annoying bug is how the game freezes, for no reason. The city animations in the middle continue, but the timers stop, and nothing happens - forcing you to wait 10 mins in the hope it wakes up, before force closing the app and realising you just wasted 1.5 hours of your life. Also, there are a lot of kids who play. Whilst it’s fun for us oldies to show the kids a trick or two, it’s not fun when they decide to trade all their properties for 1$ to another player because you’re about to bankrupt them. There needs to be a way to stop them doing that, as it ruins the game almost as much as the freezing!.Version: 1.1.3

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

Game keeps crashing after updateIt’s a good game until it just stops working, please fix this!.Version: 1.4.8

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

First impressionMy first ever game of monopoly mobile was one of the most aggravating things I’ve ever seen. One of the opponents continuously had the exact dice roll that she needed over and over from beginning to end. I tried to calculate the chances of that happening because it was unbelievable. It is somewhere around a 0.18% chance that she pulled off a game like that..Version: 1.7.1

It always freezesThe game is great but seems to be very glitchy. When playing online in multiplayer the game always locks and you’re never able to finish a game. If this wasn’t the case I’d rate it 5 stars..Version: 1.0.7

High potential, missed markAt the onset I absolutely loved this game. After playing almost 20 single player matches I found some major flaws. The most annoying being the roll of the dice is not random. I understand that anything can happen in a dice roll but it seems the dice rolls are scripted. To prove this I played a single player match against one ai player on easy. I controlled all property and railroads from the go square to free parking, yes that includes the orange properties! The opposing side only had boardwalk and park place. We both had hotels on all monopolies owned. For a numbered point of reference that’s 13 out of 20 to one side while the ai had 2 out of 20 on the opposing side. I recorded 12 cycles and I landed 8 out of 12 cycles on either one of his two squares while the ai landed only 9 times on my 13 squares out of the 12 cycles. Almost every cycle I landed on his two properties and yet many times the ai only landed on a chance, just visiting, income tax, or community passing through unscathed on my side of the board. When the ai did land it was a surprise. I’ve played enough games to realize there is some scripting going on. Very disappointed!.Version: 1.0.6

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

Difficulty settingsThe AI in the game is ridiculous. You think Hard difficulty would mean the AI plays with a better strategy but no just makes dumb trades with the other AI so one of them has a full set and hotels before you’ve gone around the board a few times. Making it basically impossible to win. 4 players basically becomes 3 against 1 with the goal being for you to loose. Not much of a board game when played on hard. Not hard at all when played on medium cause you win off the same trades. And easy difficulty pointless..Version: 1.4.7

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

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

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

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

Not worth the outlay!I rarely buy apps as there’s so much fantastic free content available, so it’s really annoying when you buy an app only to find out that it’s not at all worth the price tag. This is an example of an app taking advantage of the reputation of a popular physical game but sadly not delivering even close to the fun. I’ve played a few games now, where it seems that the algorithm has already selected who will be the winner, so the game feels rigged, eg. when 1 player cannot get around the board without being sent to jail or another player with all of the assets & plenty of money lands on free parking every round. This just takes all the chance out of the game, as well as all the fun. When you’re trying to join a game with friends, it regularly says one person has no internet access when their phone shows full wifi. Sorry this screams of lazy developers! I wouldn’t recommend!!!.Version: 1.4.4

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

Freezes up consistently!!!NEW PROBLEM: the game consistently mis moves the pieces! I thought I was making the mistakes but nope every game it happens SEVERAL times. Roll a five & it will go 6 to land you on someone’s hotel...incredibly frustrating. The game is also very predictable. If you build properties the next roll the next player almost every time won't land on you. I like the game, however another issue is that it freezes up at crucial junctures of the game. Such as after a trade. You have no choice after several minutes to abandon the game. Very frustrating after vesting so much time into it. Also I just finished a game & I bankrupted every player then it announced the last bankrupted player as the “winner!”. Ticks you off especially after spending an hour with idiots that want to make the same trade every single turn! I almost quit several times but I hung in there and put up with it because the other normal player suffering through the BS like I was. The game definitely needs some improvements. I would give this 3-1/2 stars but it won’t let me. PLEASE FIX THE FREEZE UP PROBLEM! CONSTANT CONNECTION PROBLEMS TOO! I check my internet & it’s connected. And all my other devices are working..Version: 1.1.3

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

Game has a freezing issue as well as rigged diceThe dice rolls in this game are not random at all and completely rigged. It determines where it will place you based on the circumstances and it has become severely obvious after playing this multiple times. When I am playing with friends this game has a tendency to freeze and completely stop the game from progressing for all players. There’s no way to bypass this apart from starting a new game. Obviously this is frustrating after playing a game for 45min+ only for it to freeze leaving you no choice but to start all over again. Very disappointed, paid and invested lots of money into this game whilst constantly and consistently having this issue. Please fix this game or at least refund my money because it is very frustrating and paying for a game only for it to have such severe issues is very annoying..Version: 1.1.5

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

Love it but serious issuesLove the game but there are serious issues. The game is a battery hog. It drains the battery so quickly. It freezes up which forces you to close it and open it again. The trades the A.I. players make are ridiculous and play after play they repeat over and over even if you silence them for that turn. Real players wouldn’t do half of this stuff Sometimes it appears that the dice roll is not random. Sometimes the chance or community chest cards can be the same thing on back to back draws. Who goes first, second, third is flawed because it depends upon how you are listed and who rolls the highest dice when playing against the A.I players. Not as much animation is needed which may help the battery drain or at least give an option to turn some of that off. So many things in each turn slow the whole game down and could be altered to keep it moving. Why not put the property cards displaying in the lower right rather than taking up the whole screen. Overall I enjoy the game but this one needs some work. I get tired of it draining my battery quickly..Version: 1.2.0

MonopolyGame freezes a lot,have to delete it and reload every few days Still have to delete and re load every few days,then you always get a different name Reloading every two days.Version: 1.7.4

Good game except for.........UPATE REVIEWUPDATE - The issue with the buttons being too large and preventing some game actions has been resolved, the freeze problem has only gotten worse since the last update. 3 of 5 games today I was unable to complete due to game freeze. This is not something that is acceptable on a free game but should be corrected immediately on a paid app. While I enjoy the game, the fact that some many minutes and hours are wasted because games cannot be completed is totally unacceptable. PLEASE FIX. Really enjoy Monopoly and love the game. However reading the reviews, I find two issues that have popped up numerous times on other reviews that I am also experiencing also. Since the last update, I have had several games that just freeze and you are out of luck. What a waste of one, two hours plus, very frustrating. The other really big issue is if you purchase the color block of Virginia, St Charles and States, the Houses and Hotels tab covers Virginia and States and there is no way to add Houses and Hotels. These are the two main issues that I have run into that others have as well. Hopefully this will be resolved soon..Version: 1.1.3

Good game but too many bugsUpdate Dec 22,2019: latest update to fix the issues downloaded. First game after that, the game hangs in two minutes. What a shame Hasbro, for not even getting an app right and making us spending money on a lemon! Great to play when it works. Fun for families. Freezes too often. Needs to be fixed. Has to should’ve waited to get a good version out instead of releasing the Beta(it appears to be a beta with the amount of bugs and glitches).Version: 1.0.7

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

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

Good game but not random game playI like the game, and I’ve not had any issues with crashing, but I have to say that the number of times I’ve played it against AI or online players the game play is not random. The dice are not random! It seems to determine a player that it will advantage or disadvantage through the game play. Too often players will just land on chance or community chest on each turn around the entire board - not giving them an opportunity to buy properties whilst all other players buy the whole board. You can also have some colour properties that are never landed on, or one particular property in a colour set that is never landed on. If a player has a whole colour set and puts houses on, you can end up with each player continually avoiding landing on them. This removes enjoyability of the game. It needs to be random dice to really see how the game plays out. The game should not determine which player it will give all the advantages too and which it will try to bankrupt out of the game. I know that the game can’t determine what deals or actions you might take to purchase or auction a property, but this is the only random element. The dice are definitely ‘weighted’ and over influence the game play. Please please please allow the dice to be totally random!!!!.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

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

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

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

Fun, but doesn’t feel randomI’ve been playing on hard for a few weeks, which I assumed were the AI’s not taking unfair trades and just overall making you really use your problem solving skills (looking several moves ahead like chess) in terms of buying and trading properties. I noticed that I would strive to get my pink and dark blue set every game, but nobody would land on them once I added houses and/or hotels. I noticed that they would skate right by and all of a sudden I keep going to jail when no player had been the entire game. After 30+ games, you start to notice trends. Today was kind of the breaking point for me when an AI owned Park Place and nobody owned Boardwalk. This was the beginning of the game and neither I nor the 3 AI’s had more than 2 or 3 properties and nobody was close to a set. I offered everything I had plus ONE THOUSAND dollars and the AI refused my trade. The next turn he rolled, landed on Boardwalk, completed the set, and put several houses on each. I’m pretty intelligent and am very good at recognizing patterns. Not saying it’s rigged, but adding this to the difficulty level makes the game incredibly frustrating and not fun to play..Version: 1.4.4

Beautifully designed, but obviously rigged.I love the way this game is designed, but it’s more than obvious that the AI is rigged or I just have terrible luck. After several games it becomes obvious that the AI constantly lands on properties to quickly get a color set as well as landing on chance or community chest that always seems to benefit them. Meanwhile I constantly land on income tax which wipes away the $200 I received from go. When I have a color set, the AI seems to always skip right over my hotels and houses and I can never seem to gain any money. On one game I played, I had both color sets on the most valuable side of the board and all three opposing players skipped my houses and hotels three times around the board. When I roll, it seems like I always end up on an opposing player hotel and I end up having to mortgage a ton of my properties and sell my houses and hotels worsening my chances of gaining any money. Heck the last game I played, I rolled two doubles and they both landed on opposing players hotels. Plus I landed in jail THREE TIMES in a row before I ever got to the go square. Call me a sore loser if you want but after reading the other reviews, I’m not the only one that’s seeing this..Version: 1.5.6

Worst monopoly game everWhen playing with AI, you will always land on go to jail, taxes or any property that you don’t own that has houses or hotels built in. While the AI conveniently skips your property with houses/ hotels. The AI always seems to get the chance card that take you straight to go or the cards that give money and you will always pick cards that have fines to pay. I have played this gave over 50 times with AI and I came close to winning only 1 (came 2nd out of 3) Would not recommend. The real game is much better. Save your money, this shouldn’t be a paid game..Version: 1.3.1

Online games TERRIBLEI love playing this game with friends online HOWEVER it is useless if you want to just play online with other players. I haven’t managed to get through a single game without someone leaving on their turn in such a way (such as in the middle of a trade) so that the next person can’t take their turn and we are essentially frozen. It makes it a complete waste of time playing because I can get 40 minutes into a game and be unable to complete it because it only counts down from 3 to give the next person a go if the person before left in the middle of their roll. This would be an easy to fix problem that the developers must be aware of. Please fix it because currently I am feeling very disappointed with my purchase. And won’t be recommending it to friends further..Version: 1.1.0

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

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

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

A minor irksome complaintIn the online multiplayer mode When a player lands on a chance or community chest cards that directs them to pay $50 to every other player ,that player loses $150 _that part works ,BUT the other three player never have that money deposited in their account. Maybe a minor inconvenience but it just shows the shabbiness of this app.I wish the Apple hierarchy that vets apps could at least play through the game and see if it works according to the basic rules of Monopoly . You can have all the bells and whistles that thus app has but if you don’t get the basics right you will lose the people that love this game . Also having no recourse to contact marmalade studios(twice my email attempts failed) I sadly would not recommend this game . Oh and the prices for extra tokens/board is ridiculously high..Version: 1.5.0

"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

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

Heres the deal.This game has so much potential, but with the current bugs its unplayable. I just played a game with my fiancé, where we both got into a online multiplayer lobby (why is there no option to bring friends into online multiplayer) so when we were playing im not sure what happened but it ended up freezing for her without ANY notice to me. On her phone it was frozen she had to close app, for me it seemed as if she was playing just fine. Before it froze she told me she landed on me as i wasnt paying attention but on my screen no one landed on me. Its 100% off sync on her phone i had $250 on my phone i had $77. Theres so many more bugs im sure u guys been told by now. And so many more things you guys can improve on. So heres what I did. I made a community ran subreddit for this game i’d love for some of you’re companies employees to join. Its r/monopolymobile we can easily get the subreddit to grow and i can get a list of complaints/bugs/suggestions/glitches sent from players to you guys as theres no direct way to get these sent so people know you guys are listening. Hope you see this and hope to see you in the reddit..Version: 1.0.4

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

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

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

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

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

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

No turn timersWhy is this a thing? People just never passing their turn because they got salty over som deal or lack thereof? Don’t play. The game design + how players interact makes for a terrible experience. Wish i could get back those $5.Version: 1.7.0

So sadCan’t even select offline multiplayer. Total disappointment. Expects your friends to buy the app and all play on your own devices instead of playing together offline on one device. This is appalling given it costs for the app!.Version: 1.0.7

[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

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

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

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

Fun game but a few issuesThe game overall is really good. However there are some issues which can be very irritating. 1) players taking forever to end their turn, they should implement a timer for example 30 seconds. Without any activity, it automatically moves onto the next player. 2) the game randomly crashed. This could either be because someone’s either quit the game or the game has just crashed. This needs to be fixed. 3) auctions can be irritating as if I bid for a house, it doesn’t count and it’s just very laggy. Without these issues, I find myself enjoying the game very much. However, it does require some improvement. I hope you listen to my suggestions and improve the game. Otherwise, I’d give the game 5⭐️.Version: 1.0.7

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

FreezesI have played about 5 games and each game freezes up which causes u to quit quiet frustrating especially when you’ve spent 30+mins on one game.Version: 1.3.1

Keeps crashingTried to play lots of times multiplayer with friends and get through quite far and it freezers every single time. Not worth buying please fix.Version: 1.4.5

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. Or if you are going to rig the game, go and study play psychology before you write your program.Version: 1.0.9
