Monopoly is the well-loved and classic board game turned PC game that lets you acquire property and compete with friends to obtain the most money.

Most people probably have fond memories of playing Monopoly and other similar board games with friends and family as children. Its combination of classic board-game fun and cut-throat boardroom capitalism make Monopoly the perfect accompaniment to growing up in the 1980s.

Monopoly Here & Now is an updated edition of the popular classic, featuring the same reliable gameplay and board, with updated locations, utilities and situations. For example, the spaces where the four railroads would go on the original game have popular aiprots like O'Hare International and JFK in New York instead. The traditional Monopoly utility spaces have also been changed to paying interest on credit cards and cell phone service fees. The amount of money dealt with at every stage in the game is quite different too. You can't buy a property for $60 like in the old days!

The design of Monopoly Here & Now is immediately familiar, but it includes numerous new elements such as animated characters and pieces. Actually, the animations start to become slightly annoying after about five minutes (and you can't deactivate them in the options menu). The music and sound effects that permeate the game can be deactivated, which is fortunate because they're irritating after about five seconds.

Monopoly's other elements like mortgaging and auctions are fairly well implemented, though whenever the computer makes a move, the alert window still reads "Click on a property you would like to mortgage", which might confuse some users into making them think there's something more they need to do when it's not even their turn.

Monopoly Here & Now is a fun re-telling of the classic game, let down only somewhat by its repetitive animations and sounds.

What would MONOPOLY be like if it were invented today? Find out as this classic family favorite gets a modern makeover for today's would-be billionaires! Load your account with millions, roll the dice, and move all-new tokens around the board.

Challenge your friends and family to exciting MONOPOLY fun, or play against the computer with multiple difficulty settings. MONOPOLY HERE & NOW EDITION is timeless fun for tomorrow's billionaires.
