    The Westport Independent has important lessons about ethics in journalism, but the game's tendency towards caricature leaves it feeling like it just barely grazed the truth of the matter.

    Pros

    • Beautiful (albeit borrowed) aesthetic
    • Gamifies a hot-button topic

    Cons

    • Repetitive and somewhat shallow, mechanically
    • Absurdly polarized "moral choice"
