This Is Not A Review – Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Ancestors: the Humankind Odyssey, available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, developed by Panache Digital and published by Private Division.

Just when you thought all the lists were done, baybay! Yes, the internet content machine definitely loves it some listmaking, and here we have yet another opportunity to quench the thirsts of people who demand things be ranked numerically — kinda funny to think about it when you realize how much people hate review scores.


Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Complete

Sheesh… Rookies

HIGH Finally getting one of the di-digivolutions (no that’s not misspelled) to work.

LOW The Bancho Leomon boss fight, which features an attack that instantly kills 2/3 party
members… repeatedly.

WTF One boss consumes a character, who then appears on the boss wearing a ball gag. It’s for kids!
