Learning often involves becoming immersed in a topic well enough to see things from a different perspective. Mission U.S. is just such an immersive experience. Mission U.S. is an interactive first person simulation of life during the U.S. Revolutionary period. As a player you become Nat Wheeler and make a series of decisions and take on a series of tasks to progresss through the gameplay. Based on your decisions you either become a revolutionary or a loyalist and you can never know fully which direction each choice might take you.
