As I mentioned in my Christmas Gift Guide post: Monopoly Streets Video Game from EA Games, we love playing the Monopoly Board game in our house. Usually we lose and our now 7 year old son wins. Totally not fair, but Monopoly is still a family affair around here. Over the years my husband has collected all kinds of different Monopoly board games from cartoon character versions to version from other countries.
There is one problem with Monopoly. It seems like we can never get through a full game in one sitting and with a big dog and a three year old running around, the game isn’t easy to set aside and pick back up again.
Well this Christmas that will all change!
Now we can enjoy Monopoly a whole new way with Monopoly Streets.
Santa is bringing a Wii for the family this year and a copy of Monopoly Streets for us to enjoy.
Now Monopoly Streets is a bit different from traditional Monopoly, even the video game version. Monopoly Streets puts you in the game at street level. While the goal is still the same – to accumulate wealth – you do it in Monopoly Streets in a whole new way.
To celebrate its 75th anniversary, the world of Monopoly comes to life through a living, breathing city that you can build, own, and monopolize. MONOPOLY STREETS has everything you love about the board game, presented as a street level tour of Mr. Monopoly’s fully animated world.
Engage in a head-to-head race to evolve the surrounding city, accumulate the most wealth, and own it all! Play against your friends live and online on Xbox 360 and PS3! Fresh takes on classic features such as property auctions, add new excitement to the classic play.
From the cheap motels on Baltic Avenue to the luxurious Boardwalk suites, there is excitement around every corner in this remade classic.
Check out this trailer of the game:
I look forward to experiencing Monopoly as a virtual world and hitting the “streets” to enjoy this game as a family.
Monopoly Streets is rated E for Everyone.
