The latest version of the traditional and well-loved board game comes across as a tired rehash. With the basic gameplay lacking in depth and personality we were all bored before our first session was over. The Richest Edition rule-set turns Monopoly into an entertaining mini-game collection and helps to give this title some interest. But when there are better and cheaper versions available, this full price game was something I or the family couldn't bear to stomach for more than half an hour.

Making a Monopoly game for the consoles should really be something difficult to get wrong. After all there aren't many chaotic variables to worry about. All you need are virtual dice, plastic houses and a few wads of paper money. But this Monopoly seems to make everything about my favourite board a dull and frustrating experience.

Monopoly comes to the Wii. Although at first this seems a little odd, the ability to save progress, and the additional boards and minigames make this pretty good value for money. The Wii-mote then tries to imbue a little physicality to the experience - but struggles to match the simple joys of rolling a real dice and moving the iconic metal totem yourself.
