Monument Builders: Titanic
Monument Builders: Titanic A Fast Paced Game
This is my first time management game. So I can not compare it to anything else. I have to say I like it. Very creative. It keep me alert. The tasks keeps you real busy. I was lost for awhile then caught on to the game concept.
I can see why so many people get hooked on this type of game. It really keeps you thinking and motor skills tuned.

love the factoids
This is basically the same as Eiffel Tower but it seems as if the characters are smaller. Or is that just me?
I love the little factoids at the beginning of each level.
I've only played the demo so far but I'm looking forward to getting to the later levels (bought it and downloading the full game right now). I like the way each level builds on the last so there isn't a huge jump in speeding up your thinking time or mouse clicks like there is in some of the TM games.
I think I preferred the graphics of Eiffel Tower. They seemed clearer and less cluttered to me.

no sinking here
Liked this one better than the first one. Loved the music.it gets challenging pretty fast. Click on the carts and send them to their destination. Repair roads, chop down trees (they do come back) build sawmills etc to keep the supply and demand going all in the style of long gone times.even learn some historical facts about the titanic and the time it was build in. I like TMgames but I am not sure this one is for me despite the good review.Things are a bit small and sometimes hard to tell apart.

If You Love Time Management Games, You'll Like This
I started out disliking the "pressure" of time management games, but after a few years of HOs and mahjong, I gave them a try and of course, I'm hooked. This one is really good - it builds on each level to teach you how to do the tasks required to build the Titanic. Between each level are facts about the building of the ship and her sister ship, the Olympic. It makes you realize how much time and work went into the building of the Titanic, and how in one night, thousands of lives and years of work sank to the bottom of the sea.
I usually play with sound off so as not to disturb others, but am so glad I tried this early in the day. The music is traditional Irish and very lovely. This helps make up for what I think are some of the most drab and boring graphics I've seen in a game. You really have to love time management to play this game because the graphics almost made me uninstall at first. In addition. the facts often lack punctuation and spacing at points so wordsruntogether, which is sloppy and annoying. It seems an easy fix to space and spell correctly yet so many games disregard that quality check. A game is so dependent on its visual qualities, and the style of this one almost ruined it. I'm not asking for cartoon graphics, but a bit of color and fun would have helped. After all, it is a game and not a realism exercise.
That big criticism aside, I think it is an interesting game and one I would like to buy only for the game play.

I did like this game; it is refreshing to see a time management. What I hate is it is not a full screen game like the last one. (I have a wide screen monitor so maybe that is it) If possible, it seems the workers are smaller. (HMM) Over all I think it is a purchase for me.

fun game, good tips on historical events.
I only wish this game had -no timing- button as a handicapped person my reactions are to slow and getting the golden cups is impossible.

If you can ignore the annoying americanisms
Being Belfast born and bred I was annoyed that within seconds of playing the game I spied words like 'fall' for Autumn, 'naval yard' instead of ship yard' and 'ocean liner' instead of ship or boat.
This was clearly made by a company that didn't care about the putting Americanisms into the game where it had no place. I didn't expect it be very accurate but it was nearly offensive at how blatant they ignored the true roots of the Titanic and where it was built.
If you ignore that, is it a good game. Good pace and good game-play. I did enjoy it once I got over the initial rage.

Exactly like all the others
This game is exactly like all the others in the series, from the building, to the gathering, to the recruiting, everything is the same. The only difference of course is the 'history' lesson. In that this is about the Titanic. The information is good and as it is 'bite-size' chunks it is accessible to all. If you like the others in this series then you will be 'right at home' if on the other-hand you found them tedious and boring then this isn't the game for you.
Alternatively if you just want to know about the Titanic and how it was built, then this is better then any 'boring' history book (IMHO)!
It is worth noting though that soundtrack is good and reflects the country where the Titanic was built (Belfast, Ireland) and as such a suitable Irish Jig was playing in the background, this was not unpleasant and I even turned my volume up slightly as it was (for me) very pleasing.

Nice Titanic Building Game
Challenges progressed well. Once one got used to the hang of things, getting the gold star was repeatable. But it does take some getting used to.
