EA 'breathes new life' into Monopoly
12 May 2009 — 2:00 PM
Those with the latest phones looking to while away their time taking part in some classic board game action may be interested in a new release from Electronic Arts (EA).
According to Pocket Gamer, the publisher's attempts to revise Monopoly for use on a number of portable platforms has been a success and recreates the fun of the original with a unique twist.
It states although it is often difficult to make changes to such much-loved British institutions, EA have done so successfully by introducing new card-based gameplay in the title.
However, it is noted that although this rapid-fire way of playing is "a brilliant set-up", it could also be seen as "the game's only drawback".
"Play is so good, so tight and so absorbing that the fact it only takes three full sets to win actually tends to kill off the game when the going is just getting good," the site concludes.
A number of other classic board games have been adapted for mobile gamers including Scrabble.
