Monopoly (Wii)

By Steve Wollaston on Jan 9, 09 09:01 AM

IF YOU'RE anything like me and you seem to lose most of the fiddly little pieces that come with a board game, then Monopoly on the Wii is perfect for you.

Not only do you not have to worry about keeping all that cash, cards, houses and hotels safe, but you don't have to spend ages afterwards clearing the game away.

There's also the added bonus of not having to keep track of your cash - because this version totals up your spending for you.

My hubby Pete is a devoted fan of the original game so he was the perfect person to seek an opinion from on the computerised version and he loved it. He was particularly impressed with the way the rules are strictly adhered to and the fact you can choose from various boards - including a cheese themed one!

And Mr Monopoly - the little old man with the twirly tash and top hat - pops up to talk you through various procedures, like buying a house or hotel.

The only downside is it's quite a long game especially if you are playing against the computer.

But other than that it's worth having in your Wii collection of games.
