  1. I personally liked the game. I feel it was very realistic. I felt like I was actually there in that time period. I would give it four out of five stars because even though it was fun and realistic it was annoying at times. Sometimes I couldn't get to places or when I got to where I needed to be for something I needed to go find a pencil exc. for someone. Otherwise, I had a lot of fun playing and it was a good experience and i learned a lot from it.

  2. I for one liked the game. It was fun. I rate it a 4 out of 5, because I think there should have been more places to go and visit and more people to talk to. Also they should have made the items trickier to find, because it would have been a challenge. Other than that I personally liked the game.

  3. Personally i liked the game. However i would give it 3 stars. Because it didnt give much info about the Boston massacre and such. Also, you didnt get to see alot and you could only go 5 or 6 places. Otherwise i thought the game was pretty good.

  4. In my opinion I agree with Emily because the game seemed very real to me, it was like I was really there and participating in the events. For instance, when there was the trial of the red coats I was asked questions i felt like i was really at a trial, and it felt so real to me like it was actually happening. I would give this game a 5 out of 5.

  6. I too enjoyed the game. I agree completely with Jenna and Emily. The game was fun but there should have been more people to talk too and like Emily said, you shouldn’t have to have gotten the pencil ext. But it did feel like u were actually there and u had to make some difficult decisions, but in the end, the game ended up being really fun. I give it a 4.5-5.

  8. In my opinion it was a great game. It was cool to play as 14 year old boy around my age in Boston, also you can make your own choices of what you wanted to do, and it was very fun. I give it 5 out of 5!

  9. I give this game a 4. I’ve done this because over all it was good. I think this way because the story was fun and long and you were allowed to chose your own path so there was different endings. Another reason why I like this game is there is games you get to play once you finish the game. There is one dislike about this game I think it would be better if u could walk around as a person instead of clicking on things all the time. Over all this game was fun

  10. I give it three and a half stars because I learned more about what happened in the time before the revolutionary war. Plus, I had a choice of the path I wanted to choose rather than it only having one path to take.

  11. I liked the game, it was a interesting experience, i would rate the game 4 1/2 out of 5, i rated this because it reviewed many historical experiences, and we got to choose what we can do, which is pretty cool i think.

  12. I personally liked the game, because it felt like your were there in the game it was all about the Boston Massacre. Also it put yourself in the game as a character named Nathal and it felt as the game was realistic. So if I had to rate the game, I would give a 4 out of 5, because the game really had focused so much on the Boston Massacre. But I have to agree it was a great game.

  14. I give the game a 4. I give the game a 4 because it helped me understand more of what happened with the colonist. I also thought it was fun and intresting to be part of what happened in the colonies. Hanna 2,3 A

    In my opinion I agree with Emily T, because I also, felt like I was in the period of time and in the game. Three things that I liked about this game is that it was very informational, and factual about what happened in the period of time. For example, at the end of the game in the epilogue it showed the Boston massacre, and the sailors dumping, and throwing the tea into the ocean. Also, the other thing that I liked bout the game was that it actually let you talk, and respond to the people in the game. There was nothing that I didn't really like about the game except that it only has 2 games on the extras. Therefore, I would rate this game 5 out of 5 stars.

  16. I enjoyed this game very much, it included good information from that time period. I would rate it four out of five because the game was very realistic for that time period. However, at times the game got annoying because an item was hard to find or a part was confusing. Overall I really liked the game. Brian G Period 5-9 A

  20. In my opinion I feel this game was educational and fun! It was also about how America ended up with the Declaration Of Independence. It told me how life was in that time period. It tough me that each book was hand written they didn't have printer. Over all this game was fun and i would play it again!

  21. I Liked the game so much. This game is educational and fun at the same time! The first class that we were introduced to this game i went home and played it again. It is an adventurous game about a thirteen year old boy that is hired as an apprentice for a newspaper. During the build up to the Industrial Revolution

  24. I really enjoyed this game. I like how you take the 1st person view of a person. I enjoy the story line. One thing I don't like about the game though is that sometimes I didn't like the characters. But I do like how it used actual events from the era of the Revolutionary War. Justin period 5-9A

  26. I feel that I have learned somehting while having fun. While playing as Nathaniel I was able to interact with other people. I learned that not everyone in the colonies were patriots. I rate this game a 5 for being educational and fun.

  27. I give this game 5 stars out of 5 because you have to do many fun tasks and meet historical people of that time. The task that was the most fun was when you had to find all the materials for Mrs. Edes Spinning Bee. You also meet Paul Revere though out the game. It was also historically accurate.

  28. In my opinion i enjoyed the game. I would give it a 4 out of 5. the game gave good info on the tea party and even some on the Bossten massicur. the story also included important figures and groups like Paul Rever and the sons of liberty. Although i wish there was more interaction with walking around with arrow keys.

  32. My review of Mission US is average. Nothing special, just a game. It was entertaining and educational, but lacked length and could have been better. I for one am disappointed. Mission US to me, was a let down. Don’t get me wrong it was still good, but it needed more “pizzazz”. To sum up, it needed a little more to it and I was disappointed.

    3 stars

  36. This game was great and that is why I give this game 5 stars.First, this game was very simple and it gave me a good understanding of what happened in the Revolution. Especially since you are from the point of view of Nathaniel, it felt like I was actually living in the time of the Revolution. Finally, this game gave many different decisions that you could make, and so much information about the Boston Tea Party. Perhaps one day there will be a simulated game about our time.

  42. I did enjoy the game. I give it 4 stars because I saw that it was very informational. Although it may not guided me very well in trying to accomplish missions, it provided me with many educational facts I did not know about in the past. For example,the certain items in the printshop. I also liked the way it walked you through past events that had happened during this time period such as the Boston Massacre. Not only did they give you real-life projects to do but they made it very independent. However, I feel that they could have given a suggestion as to where the people or items may be. I had trouble finding the areas and they offered no help whatsever. Lastly, I liked the game because it didnt lecture you for 20 minutes. It let you decide on what to say and what path to choose.

  43. I think that the game was very interesting. It had different ways to go in the end. It was also interesting to see how the life of an apprentice was like. I think that in during this time i would have rebelled. This is why i liked the game.

  45. In my opinion I really enjoyed the game. I thought it was informational and fun.I gave the game a four star rating because I liked playing this game in stead of doing written homework.Also, I liked how I controlled the game and I was able to choose where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do.However, at times I got a little confused on where I was supposed to go when I was assigned a mission.Lastly, I enjoy this game very much because at the end you had the choice to pick what you wanted to do; become a printer, stay with your love, or go away on a ship.Overall, I had fun playing this game and would recommend it to friends.

  48. I really enjoied this game. I like how you had many diolage options and three diferent paths to choose from. But, Iwould only give this game a four. I disliked how you only clicked on things to get to them. You couldnt walk around or walk to places in Boston

  51. This game way fun to me. I have to say that I dont like history, but thid game made it much more fun than what I thought it would be. At times it made me feel like I was in that time frame, as I usually feel when I read good books by good authors(like, J.K. Rowling) when I say that, that means this was, obviously, a very good game. Well, sometimes it could be annoying,'cause the people sounded depressed, and didn't express much feeling. Anyways, in shorter words, I give this a four and a half. <3

  52. The Mission US game was a lot of fun! Some of my favorite part was how accurate the game actually was! The way the game looked, and felt like I was living in Boston in that time. The sounds and the characters made it all the better. The directions made the game challenging, but yet not too challenging.

  54. I really enjoyed this game. The information taught me more about what happened, and how the colonists made choices and what they went through. I felt that they could give you more choices of what to say, instead of saying the same thing but in different ways. I rated this a 4 out of 5. I rated it this because you were able to choose your fate; it didn't choose it for you. You were able to stay with your love, go away on a ship, or become a printer. I would reccomend this to my friends.

  55. I really enjoyed the game, i give it four stars. I found it very informational and enjoyed learning this way. It was far more exciting to me, rather than reading from a text book. Also, i liked the way you were able to choose most of your responses, which affected Nathaniel's decisions,and actions. Overall, i really liked the game and it helped me learn and understand more about the Bostson Massacre.

  59. This game was a very interesting adventure through Boston right before the breakout of the revolutionary war. Loyalist or Patriot, you can choose your own path. You also view the Boston massacre and can take part in the Boston tea party. The game is super fun and educational.

  61. In my opinion, I liked this game because you get to interact with the characters. Also, it helped me experience the 1770s and how it effected everyone through the eyes of an apprenticed. However, I wish that you were able to say what you want and not have a couple of choices. For this reason that is why I give Mission US a 4 out of 5.

  67. I am glad to see that the majority of you liked this game and learned something from it! I am going to forward your comments to the Mission-US site and maybe they will take them into consideration as they create Mission 2 about the Civil War! Hopefully, it will be ready in time for us to play! Great job, everybody. I am impressed by your enthusiasm and quality blog posts! :) Mrs. Morales

  68. Personally, i felt this game was a total 5 stars. The mission us game helped me clear up topics that I wasn't exactly sure about. I felt like I was in the 1770's in this game. The game got more interesting every new level. I feel this game was very fun, and realistic. I believe PBS kids really put time and effort into making kids learn while having a lot of fun!

  69. I actually really enjoyed the game. What better of a way is there to learn about the colonies through a game? I learned so much while playing mission US- mostly because I was in the shoes of a person of the colonies. I thought this game was a great way to interact with historical figures such as Paul Revere and Philis Wheally, and it was also a great way to learn more about events such as the Boston Tea Party, and the Boston Massacre. Additionally, I loved how you were responsible to pick your own path; to go overseas, to go with Constance, or to stay in Boston and fight. This made you feel the pressure that actual colonists had to deal with, and learn the consequences and perks of one path. Over all, I gave this game a 5 out of 5 stars, and I hope many other children get the chance to play this great game like we did.

  70. I enjoyed playing Mission-US. Also, I thought it was interesting to see the Boston Massacre through the eyes of the British soldiers and colonists. In addition, I liked how you saw tensions rise in Boston between the colonists and British troops. To add, I enjoyed being able to choose my path at the end of the game. As a result, I give Mission-US a 5 out of 5.

  71. I would give the Mission-Us game a four out of five stars because although it was fun it wasn't perfect. You play as Nathaniel,an apprentice for a printer in Boston at the time of the American Revolution. I enjoy how there is historical events including the Boston Tea Party and the Boston Massacre allowing you to interact with different colonists. However, some of the flaws in the game include a small town of Boston,it would have felt better if the town of Boston had been expanded to a much larger area. Additionally, another complaint I have is that the second half feels to short in comparison to the first half. Overall, the game is engaging and after you've finished the game you can play again or try the mini-games you unlock.

  74. This game was interesting. it showed you what life during the british ruling over the colonies was like, without boring you to death. also, you had to choose your actions wisely, or you might end up in a situation you don't want to be in, similar to real life. if i had to rate this from a scale to 10, i would choose 11.

  76. I enjoyed playing the Mission U.S a boatload. the game was very informational and i learned some new things to. The way the made the game for me made learning fun. The game even had some extras you unlocked you could play for fun. i found that because they make u slowly learn it by going on missions and introducing the charachters helped me memorze then one-hundred percent better!
