Not really, it's still a very exciting time, I think it's only interesting to Americans really since its our history, I can see how anyone else could find it boring

Yes absolutely, they seriously couldn't have picked a more boring setting in time and space. I hope all you non-Americans and schoolkids enjoyed it, but after going over this time period ad nauseum in junior high, high school and college, it bores me to tears.

I don't find it boring at all. Interesting historical figures, relevant struggles and issues and OK battles and fights. The buildings feel fresh and new and make it very fun and satisfying to run and climb about. there's new characters and new weapons, and also now wildlife to hunt and kill. I don't know about anyone else but I was getting bored of Italian buildings and tall towers.

I'm not American and I found it boring. The American Revolution boils down to: Colonists don't want to pay taxes, so they revolt against the King. They fight in the name of freedom and liberty, and yet the leaders own slaves...

I disagree somewhat. The problem is more that with the Ezio games, the plot felt more cohesive. Each mission and sequence led directly to the next.

With ACIII, it just felt like a series of loosely connected events. One mission you're with Samuel Adams, the next Paul Revere, then Washington, then Lafayette. They just tried to fit in too much.

I think a compelling game COULD have been made in this setting. This just wasn't it.

I think Revelations was more boring of a setting
