Bài gửiTiêu đề: MONOPOLY HERE & NOW EDITION (Cờ tỉ phú)   Mon Feb 11, 2008 10:48 am

The ultimate property trading game gets a 21st century makeover in Monopoly: Here and Now Edition from Tikgames and RealArcade, a downloadable version of the board game of the same name.In case you haven't seen this new limited edition version of Monopoly, Here and Now Edition is
a modern makeover of America's favorite board game but with places and
prices that better reflect today's market (hence "here and now"). For
example, each player starts off the new game with $15 million dollars
instead of $1500 as in the original game. Pewter pieces are cell
phones, McDonalds' French fries and laptops. Hot property includes
Times Square in New York City and Boston's Fenway Park. The four
railroad spots are now airports, including LAX, JFK and Chicago's
O'Hare. A Community Chest card may read "Your computer network gets hit
by a virus. Pay $100,000." You get the idea. But the goal of the game
still remains the same: buy, sell and trade well-known U.S. properties
to win the game.This new digital version looks and plays just like the Monopoly: Here and Now Edition board
game, but is brought to life with computer animation, sound effects and
music, and handy extras such as a History area to show you all the
moves made by all players. Big buttons are prominently displayed to
Build, Sell, Mortgage, Unmortgage and Trade. Also, it just takes a
click to refresh yourself on the official rules. As with the board
game, you can play with friends beside you on the same computer ("hot
seat" mode), but unfortunately, there's no option for an online
multiplayer, which is odd, as an older CD-ROM version of the game by
Hasbro offered this.Anyhoo, Monopoly fans will
immediately fall in love with the high production values for this game;
each pewter piece is animated, therefore the cell phone flips open and
closes (and rings!) as it moves about the board, while the jet airplane
whooshes across the properties. Land on the "Go To Jail" spot and a
flashing police car drives around the board and drags you behind bars
on the opposite corner of the board. Even the die (which is plural for
dice, seriously) look great as it rolls out onto the screen. Buy some
property and money floats out of your wallet towards the bank.The
jazzy music is good, but too bad there's only one song. Another beef: a
good casual game can be played for five minutes or three hours, but
while you can certainly save your progress in this game, it's not the
kind you want to get into unless you have some time to spare.Shortcomings aside, Monopoly: Here and Now Edition
is a great game for fans of the board game - but now you can play
against a virtual opponent on a laptop at 30,000 feet. Also, not having
played this board game version, I admit paying $250,000 for landing on
the Atlanta Hartsfeild airport, owned by the computer A.I., proved a
little disconcerting at first. That is, until I realized I had $20 mil
in the bank. Paying $60,000 for landing on Chicago's Wrigley Field was
a little more palatable.So go ahead and unleash your inner Trump by downloading this clever remake today.
