    Werewolf: The Apocalypse- Earthblood may not be a game that’s going to gain widespread acclaim, but for fans of the World of Darkness franchise it’s great to finally have an outing that dives into the more wild side of things. If Werewolf: The Apocalypse is able to find its footing with Earthblood, then things can only go up from here. The old-school beat-em-up feel of the combat encounters steals the show, proving once again that some things don’t go out of style.

    Despite Earthblood’s roughshot ride over opportunities to dive deep into the lore of Werewolf: the Apocalypse, the focused exploration of this end of the World Of Darkness manages to deliver a bloody good time when the claws come out. It's just a shame that some of the loftier ideas are let down by repetitive stealth gameplay and poorly developed mechanics.

    So is it the perfect game? No, unfortunately, it is not. But if you like werewolves, are familiar with the original Werewolf: The Apocalypse universe, or just want to hulk around as a giant wolf throwing people around like ragdolls then it might be worth your time.

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is not devoid of charm, thanks to its rich universe and the possibility to switch from infiltration to combat with the three different forms. It could have been a good game with a further developed RPG aspect, less repetitions, and a more inspired story. Technically speaking, the graphics and animations — including lip-sync — as well as the AI feel outdated for a recent game. As a result, Werewolf is below average, and that's a shame.

    Cyanide Studios once again manage not to raise the bar. This is a deeply average game reminiscent of cheap B-movies, visually awful and mechanically obsolete. But massacring your enemies as a bloodthirsty werewolf is, not surprisingly, quite fun.

    While the concept of Earthblood is fantastic, the execution is not. From story to visuals to level design, the game feels outdated and uninspired. One thing I really like though is how it lets you choose between action or stealth.

    An Action-RPG set in a gothic-fantasy-punk universe starring werewolves that tackles contemporary themes such as ecology was appealing, but Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood fails everything it does. Both technically and playfully, Cyanide's game is a real disappointment. The adventure is repetitive, the gameplay uninspired, the narrative reduced to its simplest form, and the execution antiquated. Only the soundtrack and the clashes between lycanthropes save this once-mythical creature from complete sinking.

Могла быИгра бы была просто потрясающая в 2016-2018 году но не в 2021м видно что был очень ограниченый бюджет, и сюжет очень поверхностный. Могла бы придумать что-то глубже, в целом на один раз поиграть можно. Оценку 10 поставил за новизну идеи с тремя перевоплощениями, уже давненько не встречал нечего подобного. Что-то новенькое. Но им бы бюджет по лучше и сценариста по сильнее. И за главного персонажа! Наконец то главный персонаж БЕЛЫЙ КРЕПКИЙ МУЖИК!!!) спасибо разрабам за это! У них ещё остались яйца. И пусть она не тянет на эту оценку из-за своей примитивной графики 10ку я поставил за главного персонажа! Такое впечатление что эта игра была сделана ещё шестью годами ранее но вышла только в 2021 Expand

    I immediately wondered why?
    Yes, the game has poor graphics for 2021, but since when does graphics affect game scores?
    For me, the most important thing is the plot and the gameplay.
    The gameplay here is gorgeous, the character has three forms, each of them is universal and designed for different purposes, reading reviews from critics, I don't understand how such gameplay can be considered monotonous at all?
    And about the plot, I will speak briefly.
    Yes, he is straightforward, yes, he is short, but that did not stop the game from making me cry after the end.

    I was not expecting AAA quality from this one, I was expecting a good small rail-story with some good bloodbath, and I got what I was waitingI was not expecting AAA quality from this one, I was expecting a good small rail-story with some good bloodbath, and I got what I was waiting for. Don't look at the game as you look at all those big AAA projects, it is a small game with a good story, an awesome werewolf model, and a fight. Yes, the human models a less good animated, the stealth is not so good as I think it will be (since the game was made by the same company that made Styx), but still, it is just a good story, an adventure and I like it. It has a good story, at least, as I know the lore of WoD werewolves, it was easy to get into it.
    I do hope people will not put these games into the trash, as they could if they will look and judge the game by AAA rules, and they find some good things that I see in these games.

    If you're looking for the next great action stealth game for the ages, look elsewhere. If you want a game where being a werewolf is the heartIf you're looking for the next great action stealth game for the ages, look elsewhere. If you want a game where being a werewolf is the heart of the story and gameplay, there is basically no other option in videogames. It bears the hallmark limitations of a small studio trying to chase some big studio ideas and coming up short, but there is plenty to enjoy here. Expand

I liked the game, in my opinion the game lacked only one thing - it was the release of the game on all platforms - because very few people will support such a game in epic games, I would like to buy it on incentive, I will wait. Passed with a friend as a whole, the game is worth it - if by today's standards 799 rubles is a straight ceiling - the developers have tricked the price to set it higher - because the higher the price, the more questions to the product. The game turned out to be 7/10 for me - not **** - but also not wow, just a stunning project - a good game for the evening with a beer. The price is too high, the product is not only graphonium and AI, let's be honest, is rather weak with model faces. Its price is 799 rubles - unfortunately, I'm afraid the developers won't sell it much, I think they themselves already understood how they released it, because young people need a graphon for the masses, and if it is not there, not everyone will play a project from the Xbox 360 era - even these chips we were left with the exit by the enemy through the doors and loading between locations - when we seemed to have gone through this a long time ago. I do not advise guys to buy if you are waiting for a straight wow project. This is an ordinary project of category B that does not take stars from the sky and someone who is over 30 and above will like such a game - who remembers those times - if you are even younger and find a prototype, then you will definitely want to play this project, and those who do young and did not touch such projects, I do not advise - because you will spit from everything and the game will be very boring for you - because the style of presentation of the narrative and plot and gameplay from 2007-2012. These are very old mechanics. Buy so to speak at your own peril and risk - because the project is controversial and not everyone will get it. Expand

    The combat is absolutely atrocious, mission design is not creative nor does it seperate it from anything way older games haven't done already.The combat is absolutely atrocious, mission design is not creative nor does it seperate it from anything way older games haven't done already. The upgrade system doe not upgrade combat nor anything outside of combat, its such a waste. The AI slides on ice skates when i melee them. Tons of nps with the exact same character model. The story swears you know the lore from the last game. This is a 0. Expand
