Title Deluxe Monopoly Publisher Leisure Genius/Virgin (1985-1991) ['Board Genius' Compilation, Beau Jolly (1991)] Game Type Strategy (Board Game) Players 1-6 HD Installable No Compatibility All Amigas Submission Dennis Smith Profiled Reviewer Review Monopoly is arguably the world's best-known board game; basically it is a turn-based game in which you buy and sell property, build on the property, charge rent to any opponent who lands on said property and attempt to bankrupt all your opponents and be the only one left. Like all computerised versions of board games, if you're just playing against human opponents, you're better off with the board game itself. The computer version's advantages are mainly in the inclusion of computer controlled players and a computer controlled bank which prevents cheating and means you don't have to worry about losing all the pieces down the back of your sofa. It doesn't take long to realise that the computer opponents, although by no means incompetent, are extremely frustrating to play against. They are fairly tight-fisted and are wise to a good bargain but their major failing is that they will never, ever make an offer to another player - it is up to the human players to set up all deals. Should all human players be knocked out, you'll be bored to death by the computer's simplistic strategy. This computerised version isn't worth getting unless you really can't trust any of your friends to look after the bank... Of course, in that case, a search through the aminet will turn up a couple of free alternatives.
