for the 10 or so bucks that this is worth, not bad.
I have one issue with this though. It is an inferior product to what use to be released in cereal boxes.
Oh don't get me wrong, its still a decent representation of the board game, but the version I use to play in high school had full voiced interactions, every couple of pay-days you moved up another decade (yes, the years played a role). Your 'family' was all fully rendered and every single square you landed on had an animation or funny joke.
Even common gameplay mechanics were taken out from this version: life tiles mean almost nothing now, you don't buy insurance, your career does not matter as much. I liked the fact that your salary increased over time, but honestly, thats about it.
Yes, its nice that they included elementts from "risky road" and "safe paths" or "the family route" but thats not saying much.
I love board games, all board games, and while this is a decent version for its price, they probably could have released the cereal box version made almost a decade ago and no one would have minded or been the wiser.
Yes, the features were all bells and whistles, but when your trying to sell people on playing a $20 board game with $10 software it may be beneficial if you atleast added all the variety and features that the actual board game had.
I'd give this a 6.5/10 its good and all, and worth its price. But this is a downgrade from what use to come with my fruit loops when i was like 14
