    Which Revolutionary period is your favorite?

    So far, we've had 3 major games with 3 major revolutionary periods in history.

    American


    French


    Industrial


    Which one is your favorite based on: gameplay, story, content and/or open world experience.

    I was gonna do this as one choice only but that sounds like it might be hard to choose if you have more than one ;P

    Revolution is more a political thing. The industrial revolution was more a phrase. And I don't think syndicate dealt with the industrial revolution as anything more than wallpaper.

    Anyway I think AC3 was the only game that really tried to give some complexity to revolutionary movements in story and style. Not perfectly done but it tried.

    Unity ideally should have been better because it was the biggest most complex revolution in world history but they gave us a rancid piece of crypto fascist nonsense instead.

    Russian. Oh wait, that's next month.

    Of those three, prolly the American. It's really going to come down to which of the three games you enjoyed most, and its AC3 out of them for me. I miss exploring the frontier, and the varied locations.

    I think thematically too the American one really tore things up politically between them and Britain. As a UK citizen, I found it all quite fascinating to experience. By token, the Industrial Revolution had the least impact on me, perhaps because so much of London looks the same as it once did, even today as I walk around it.

    Agreed. Syndicate and Unity's revolutions (while drastically different to begin with) were nothing more than a backdrop for their stories. ACIII actually dealt with pretty close up with the revolution. As VL4 says, while it was far from perfect, it actually captured some pretty decent moments here and there.

    You forgot the Renaissance, which is at least as much a revolution as the Industrial one.

    It is not fair to compare the Industrial revolution to the other two.The only hing they share is the word itself.It would be cooler if we compared:

    French vs American (French IMO was portrayed much better)
    and
    Industrial vs Renaissance(It's tie IMO.The industrial is obviously much better aesthetically,but AC2 is a much older game)
