More often than not, Ancestors Legacy showed me a good time watching my berserkers, Teutonic knights, and Slavic tribesmen hack their way through forests, marshes, and the occasional open field. The weakness in the core infantry combat, which tilts a bit too much away from quick, tactical thinking and into correctly guessing how the enemy line will be arranged, was the main issue that kept me from really coming to love it. Historical inaccuracies aside, though, it scratched my itch for a traditional RTS in a way that will probably keep me coming back.

Ancestors Legacy is not for every player that loves the RTS genre because it lacks the depth and complexity of its kind, but at the same time will enchant newcomers to the style thanks to its simplicity, great and tactic encounters, atractive campaigns, marvelous aesthetics and an atmospheric soundtrack.

If you really, really have to play an RTS on console then you could do a lot worse than Ancestors Legacy. Well thought out controls, appealing visuals, and a solid multiplayer make for a reliable RTS experience. You might never feel compelled to reach the conclusion of the samey single-player campaign but you will delight in just having one more go at flanking your pal's Teutonic Knights with your Hurscarl Warriors.

Despite the names of real historical figures and the armies of real nations, this is not a "historically accurate" game. It's a badass strategy simulator, one with deep gameplay and that glorifies what is maybe one of the most gnarly periods of human history.
