Monopoly for the iPad Released By EA Games

The big iPad screen is perfect for playing Monopoly. EA has had great success with versions of the game for the iPhone and iPod touch, so it only makes sense to bring it to the iPad, as well. The Monopoly HD game allows iPad users to connect wirelessly to other iPad game players via a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection. Another cool thing is that iPad users can play locally against people running the Monopoly HD on their iPhone or iPod devices, and not just the iPad.

The game mimics the real thing beautifully on the iPad — thanks to iPad’s awesome display. Shake your device to “roll” the 3D dice. Tap the screen to manage your properties. Building a house on Baltic Avenue, taking a “Chance,” or opening the “Community Chest” are easy with intelligent design and intuitive controls. Play through three levels of difficulty and save games in progress. Also customize the number of players, the “house rules,” and even the game environment.

What’s your favorite iPad game, and why?
