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.


Indivisible Review

Embracing Tranquility And Chaos

HIGH Well-established characters and robust combat.

LOW It’s not the best at explaining some mechanics.

WTF Literally losing your head in a sporting match.


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!


Death Stranding Review

Strands Across America

HIGH The online sharing is one of the coolest things ever in a game.

LOW The storytelling is absolute junk.

WTF Hideo Kojima has all the subtlety of a custard pie to the face.


The Sojourn Review

Stay A While, Don’t Listen

HIGH The “Vivid Nightmare” level.

LOW Trying to inch along bridges while keeping an eye in view.

WTF “The more you reap the more you sow”?
