Mission US: For Crown or Colony? is a wonderful way for kids to explore the historical facts that brought about the Revolutionary War. The first-person perspective makes the story more compelling, although it may be difficult for kids to make an impartial decision since the characters on the side of the Patriots seem more sympathetic overall. Also, unlike Mission US: Flight to Freedom, your choices during the game don't seem to have any real impact on the end result. Still, kids have the chance to meet Paul Revere, chat with Phillis Wheatley, and have a front row seat to the moments just before the Boston Massacre. It's hard to forget experiences like that. If all history classes were like this, history class would be the favorite of all students.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
