Ancestors: A Humankind Odyssey kind of squirted out to middling reviews, earning praise for its ambitious elements but coming under fire for being obtuse, awkward, boring, and irritating.
Its chief developer is rather bitter about the whole thing, and says he’s used to better reviews. In expressing his disappointment, he accused some game reviewers of not really playing the game and making stuff up about it, unsubtly suggesting his game would perform better otherwise.
As a critic and a former full-time game reviewer, I’ve got some serious issues with the implications being made, especially when all the evidence points to the fact that Ancestors just isn’t all that good a game.
