Star Wars Monopoly, the game of intergalactic bargaining! Well now, I'd say that 99.99% of people know about Star Wars, and about 99.999% of the people have heard about Monopoly. Combine a great movie with a great game, shake well, let sit, and what do you get. Don't shake it too hard of course, but what you have is Star Wars Monopoly!

Special features are very numerous, first of all, its the classic Monopoly game play with an immersive Star Wars Universe and the game is hosted by C3PO! (I loved that feature) You can choose from 8 Star Wars Villains or Heroes. (Darn! No Thimble!) You can also buy and sell your favorite Star Wars properties like Coruscant's Imperial Palace and Dagobah's Swamp.

There are hundreds of scenes from the Star Wars Trilogy which all add to the great graphics and sound that this game has, and to tell you the truth, hotels got kinda boring after a while, so what do you think they went out and did? Buy all the properties in a planet and you get to put up starports!

Internet play is allowed and it enables you to compete with players all over the world. So have fun with Star Wars Monopoly, if you have at least a Pentium 133 you most certainly will!
