Ancestors is not a perfect game, and I think it could have benefited from another six months in development. But the overall scope and reach of the game make playing it worthwhile. I hope the developers will let people know more about some of the mechanics used, like the weird mini-map, because players will want to know.Weirdly, I feel ready, somehow, to be left alone in a jungle.
All in all, Rage 2 is a good way to pass the time, especially since this summer is going to be a long one and there aren't major releases planned. The story itself can be finished quickly if you ignore the sidequests, but if you want to do everything, you're going to spend at least double that.
I can't recommend Anno 1800 enough. I was legitimately worried that Ubisoft might try to bring the entire franchise into the present, but I'm happy to say that my fears were unfounded. The game is a love letter to the old city-building games, while still managing to innovate and surprise even veteran players.
