Tesla's Tower: The Wardenclyffe Mystery
Not Enough Oomph
Like most of the reviews, I felt there was way too much dialog. Some said you can skip it, other said you can click through it. Either way, the amount of dialog really detracts from the game play.
I found some of the mini-games (in the demo) were not really logical. I was able to solve one, not by being intelligent enough to figure it out, but just by clicking switches until the puzzle was solved. Not very exciting. Give me a real sweat-on-the brow challenge and I'm in heaven. Yes, I'm stubborn and don't give up until it's done. The lock pick puzzle was pretty unresponsive, I agree. But I did get mine to work, though it's just a question of remembering which tumbler to click next.
Over all, not worth the time.

not for me
way too much dialogue, too bored with it to finish the trial, it could have been a good game if it wasn't swamped with dialogue. The one HOS game i played was tedious, The game seemed to have no challenge to it at all, even the graphics were boring. Sorry guys but i will pass on this one.

Very Well Done Game
Which I found Very Boring
The story did not keep me interested
The gameplay did not either
and the mini games were just so/so
This game is well done and plays like an Adventure game
thats really the only good i can say about it....
I found it so boring i cannot recommend it....

Slow, wordy and the mini games were terrible!
This game is frustratingly slow and tedious. I don't know who was more annoying, the Tesla character or his Granddaughter.
I gave up at the lock-pick mini game. The pick was completely unresponsive and wouldn't let me lift the pegs, it just kept going back to the first one. I gave this game 20 minutes I'll never get back. Total waste of time.

Too much jibber-jabber for me
I'm sorry, I blipped this one from my line-up wih 2 minutes left to go on the demo.
Now, don't get me wrong - the game is well-designed and challenging; but even with the voice sound off I quickly tired of the constant pop-up chatter from Nikola. It interupts the flow of the play like too many commercials during a TV show.
Without that, I would have bought the game.
If you don't mind listening to the dialog or clicking through it, then I do recommend this game.

Way too much dialog. Very difficult to find the "back" button--I spent more time moving my cursor around looking for it and listening to the talking heads going on and on and on, than I did actually playing. It drove me nuts. Hated the mini games and the game is not intuitive at all. I play games for fun, not for frustration. Save your money on this one.

too much dialoge
I cannot recomend this game because I had no time to play - (in the demo) only to read dialogues.
It is a pitty - because graphics - and the story and the skills are good
