Critic Reviews for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

In Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, survival is easy once you decipher the basic mechanics of evolution and sit through the cutscenes, but the journey is full of moments of discovery.

A novel premise wrapped in an awkward and repetitive survival slog.

Ancestors is ambitious and clunky and not much fun - and it's often quietly thought-provoking too.

A tiresome and unforgiving survival game that purposefully makes things as difficult and repetitive as possible, while offering very little in the way of entertainment.
