    If you are expecting something deep like Papers Please, you are going to be disappointed. It has much less content and gameplay than Luke Pope's legendary game.

    Try it but after a very high price drop.

    It's actually quite wonderful, most games with choices like these kill you off before you see any real changes as a result of your decisions. This game gives a lot of leeway, and the characters are well written.

    Headliner: NoviNews surge com uma intenção boa e tem seus momentos, mas um sistema político simples demais e direções de arte e de som que deixam a desejar impedem que o jogo cumpra com todo o seu potencial. De qualquer maneira, ainda pode ser uma boa porta de entrada para quem começa a se interessar por política.

    Headliner: NoviNews is a hard-hitting news cycle simulator that takes the choose-your-own adventure model through dark themes and into the political cycle of a country in turmoil. Issues with controls and short, repeated play-throughs are a bummer, but tolerable.

    Headliner: NoviNews is a fun game that really can emphasis just how powerful a headline and news story can be, not to mention the wider impact it can have on a society. This is an experience that pushes the adage that actions have consequences so well.

    Headliner: NoviNews puts the player in a newspaper desk with the power to decide which stories will be published and along with this, the responsibility of taking major decisions that affect other characters' lives. This is the major selling point of Headliner: NoviNews and at the same time, it's also what will put it off for other players who will find this concept less appealing. Nevertheless and despite some less enthusiastic aspects of this game, players who dedicate themselves will be motivated into taking this experience further and further.
