no xbox live play?!?! absolutely diabolical.
i can understand what people are saying about people leaving, but that really is no reason to leave out how great that could be with people that DONT leave, like say, your friends, which is how its been played since it was made.
They had a chance to do something new, and something that people had told them they wanted, and EA were oblivious.
there are lots of games on xbox arcade that have shown ways to get around this 'early leavers' as well, all of which ea have failed to spend the time looking into. Besides, even if they had just included the live feauture and it was a flop for many who couldnt play with friends, you wouldnt HAVE to play online. Great games always havve varying different features for different poeple.
this is just yet another scam by ea, ripping people off with a cheap, rushed out product, charged at full price.
its upsetting to know they now must own the rights to any future monopoly games, i was really looking forward to this.
