The graphics, game play, game speed and controls are good. There is a complete history of the game. Several games can be saved. Player profiles for all the characters.
This is typically better than the board version. Game play is fast, there is no need for a banker .
Its just all-in-all a good game. However, I have two gripes with Monopoly Here and Now for PC.
1) To play the came the CD must be in the tray.
2) There is a maximum of 4 players, rather than 8 like most monopoly board versions.
Minus these two flaws this game is perfect.
It does have some bugs in the software and Encore USA provides no support and is just about impossible to reach in a meaningful way. Its web site has no way to log a problem nor does it offer a patch. Its FAQ on the game is 3 questions long and just about useless. It is a challenge to even find a phone number to call the CA office on and you may as well give up because they put you on hold and never respond to your call.
