    If you’re a fan of point and click games, or the Telltale adventure series, 1979 Revolution: Black Friday will be a no-brainer. However, it’s the game’s historical setting that should be the major draw. The Iranian revolution is not something that’s covered often in Western media; I personally knew very little before playing the game, yet here it’s proven to be a fascinating period of time.

    The gameplay and visuals of 1979 Revolution: Black Friday are not bad, but at the same time they are not as fantastic and inventive as I had hoped. The story, writing and characters though are great with some brilliant hidden facts, photos and films. The voice work is excellent and it really does allow this great idea to shine, all as it tackles a massive piece of history through the medium of gaming.

Choosing the dialogue I wanted made me feel like I had a lot of freedom within the game and thankfully it does make you feel like your choices matter. Each character in the game feels important and the excellent voice acting not only brings the story to life but it also makes it very immersive as well. I really enjoyed reading all of the snippets of information that are dotted around the game because it does give the game a little bit of replaybility. There are a few technichal issues within the game and whilst they’re all small issues they do hold the game back a little bit. I was a little disappointed with the gameplay elements in the game because they’re a little boring and there just isn’t much to do. Does 1979 Revolution: Black Friday do enough to get a recommendation from me? The Telltale formula has been used in many game’s now and I’m still not sick of it because when done well you end up having a very enjoyable and immersive experience. 1979 Revolution: Black Friday thankfully does use this formula extremely well and if you’re a fan of game’s that offer you a rich story and characters that are both interesting and informative at the same time then you will thoroughly enjoy what this game has to offer and thankfully for me in the end it did tick a lot of boxes, which is great.
