At first glance, I thought I was just playing Monopoly and was a bit disappointed. However, while similar, it's a lot more involved and more exciting than Monopoly - thanks to the trade aspect of the game, upgrading vehicles and the tasks/goals. I'm probably not making it sound all that fun, but trust me, it's awesome :) I don't even particularly like board games and I still loved this!
A great little feature is that you can get a snapshot of information about the places you're buying. For example, if you land on the Space Needle in Seattle, you can click the info button and get some information. It's not too lengthy, just a couple of lines telling you the most important information. I learnt quite a bit playing this game!
So far, I've only played the Campaign mode vs AI players. However, there is the facility to create your own games and play against other people.
The only criticism I have is that the Campaign mode was too easy and far too short. After I completed New York, I was expecting another 3 or more cities and was sorely disappointed to find the game was at an end. There is some replay value - and I guess for families, it would be great as they can play one another in the Custom mode. I personally felt a bit short-changed though!

Excellent, mindless fun!
I have spent hours upon hours on this gem-of-a-game! It never repeats itself, and gets you really hooked! (many a times I've shouted gleefully over purchasing the Statue of Liberty lot, or silently cursed over being involved in 3 accidents consecutively). There's a strategy to it (duh), and once you get the hang of it, you'll have a sure-fire way of winning every time. That being said, the level fun or difficulty doesn't lessen, and I'm still as addicted to this game as I initially was when I first purchased it many, many moons ago. Always good for a revisit, and a great way to spend a few hours! Highly, highly recommend!

wish there was more
I really did love this game. I got hooked from the trial and purchased when the hour was up. It is like a cross between monopoly and the game of life, with just enough variety within each level to not get bored. I wish there were more cities included in the challenges!

Compete to buy property places in 3 cities!
This game is a bit like Monopoly in terms of the strategy employed to play and win. But there are 3 levels, each of which is a different city and the property/places actually exist in those cities. With each level, the competition increases. Buy properties, build improvements, and also buy and sell commodities that you can trade at each location, based on how big your truck is. The game is addictive and you can save the game at whatever point you need a break since an entire game can take over 8 hours...lots of fun!

I love this game. I play it often, it is a change of pace from the TM and adventure games I usually play. It is a laid back game, and very addictive!! this is my first review, but thought this game deserved the review.

I love this game... you can play for hours and the game is never the same twice. The only thing I'd like to see is more cities! Hopefully they'll make a second one with more cities. (:
