In Global Conflicts: Palestine, you are a journalist, exploring a 3D environment representing a section of Jerusalem. In each of six missions, you must investigate a story--in one, a checkpoint where Palestinians are being screened for entry--and interview the people you meet. In each, some newsworthy event occurs e.g., a suicide bombing. You are permitted a limited number of quotes, and must choose when, during a conversation, you choose to write a quote down in your notebook.
At the end of the mission, your story is submitted to your editor, and scored--on the basis of the quotes, and the political bias of the paper you choose to write for (you can choose an Israeli, Palestinian, or European paper). Global Conflicts: Palestine is a worthy and very different take on its subject--and worth a look both by those interested in these issues, and those interested in how game techniques can be used to illuminate our world.
