“Monopoly” games are commonplace nowadays, but back in 2001, it was rare to see a “Monopoly” game that also had a business side to it. By business side, I mean managing properties, constructing particular businesses, adjusting prices and inventory counts, leasing city blocks and utilities, and etc. “Monopoly Tycoon” lets you do all of those things and more. Due to its age, I’m not going to bother with a full review. I will say however that if you can get the game to work on your PC, it’s a blast to play. Some of you may receive a “this program is attempting to crash gracefully” when starting up the game, but you can click the “No Music” box in the configure menu before you hit that play button and it should work. You won’t have music, but at least the game will get you past the opening cutscene. All in all, it’s a fun business tycoon game that everyone should experience at least once.
