Monument Builders: Eiffel Tower
Could have been better
fun part: it's set in 19th century Paris, and looks like it.. something different and that's good.
less fun: you have to click too many times to make one thing happen. i.e. if you click a tree because you need the wood, you also have to click 'cut'. But since that's the only option, it's kind of silly. So mechanics of the game could have been (much) better. Would probably buy if/when it's a DD, but won't use a game credit.

A pretty good game.
It really wasn't the funnest game but it kept me entertained.

Monument Builders Eiffel Tower
I bought this game after buying "Titanic" and I am very disappointed I thought it would be as good as Titanic but can't get past level 8 I just can't click fast enough

Pretty fun, but many other better games in this genre
I liked this game enough to finish playing it, replaying some levels to get gold scores for all of them. I liked the setting-appropriate music and cute, if low-res, graphics as well as the Eiffel Tower trivia they would display in the loading screen before each level and the historical setting was enjoyable in general..
Others have already mentioned this problem with the game: poor explanation of the full effects of upgrading the company HQ, which is CRUCIAL to finishing in expert time for most levels. The difficulty level seemed uneven, with the most challenging levels in Part 2 (out of 5) of the game. This is possibly because I played Part 2 before I read about the "trick" of destroying roads to get resources, in which case the game is just too easy overall.
There's nothing truly bad or awful about this game, but there are better ones in this genre like Royal Envoy, the Time Builders series or Pioneer Lands.

A Build a Lot wanna be
Pretty slow game play, and clearly a simpler version of Built a Lot or Royal Envoy type of game. Graphics were pretty simple, and just wasn't as fun as games of its type.

So much wasted potential
Expected to enjoy. Transitions slow. Instructions and relationships/goals weak and disconnected. Visuals not very Paris or history or fun. Music repetitive and tiresome. Need other sound cues, maybe to support goals? No sense of progress. Took an hour to sort of catch on. Not planning to buy.

disappointing game as cannot make progress past level 4.8.
Some with nimble fingers have got past this level but there are loads of disappointed people who just have not got fast enough fingers to achieve this level. there's no way to bypass it - so half the game is wasted.

Change of skills halfway through!
I really enjoyed this game until I reached level 4. The second game in this level was not a time management/problem solving game but depended entirely on how fast you could click your mouse.
THere is nothing worse than a good absorbing game which changes the skill set required halfway through.
I have no likelihood of completing this part and therefore will be unable to finish the game. I wish I hadn't bought it!
Being a silver surfer I'm not all that good at speed clicking and prefer the games where you have to think.

Great if you're supremely bored.
I was supremely bored, which is the only reason I continued playing. The levels were repetitive and the cursor clicks aren't accurate, which doesn't help since there's so much clicking. The music and gameplay are just repetitive. It was almost like data entry. I may get this game for my kids if it's for sale at the $3 price. Otherwise, I'll pass.
