You are Cahal, a powerful Garou who chose to go into exile after losing control of his destructive rage. On his quest for redemption and blood, Cahal plays a crucial role in the great war between the Garous and Endron, a powerful oil company that serves the Wyrm, whose destruction is ravaging the planet.
    He can transform into a wolf and a Crinos, a huge ferocious beast. Each form has its advantages: the wolf can sneak around undetected, Cahal as a human can interact with other people, and the Werewolf can unleash its rage to tear enemies apart.

    Certainly not the biggest RPG out there, Werewolf The Apocalypse Earthblood still manages to keep its gameplay fun and fresh for around 14 hours of bloody action.

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood proudly wears the reverence for White Wolf's lore on its furry sleeve, with a dark-but-interesting universe and a fierce pro-environment/anti-capitalist message. But behind its wild, bloody carnage and well-meant intentions lies a dated and sorely repetitive stealth adventure that, among its contemporaries, fails to stand out from the pack.

    In Werewolf The Apocalypse Earthblood, every advantage is neutralized by a disadvantage, leading to a totally mediocre experience.

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is a forgettable and disappointing adventure. The World of Darkness is rife with potential, but Cyanide squanders it with this dated action adventure title.

    Playing as a powerful, rage-filled werewolf should be the perfect set-up for a great video game but Earthblood misses so many obvious opportunities it’s as if the game itself is cursed.

    Given how rich World of Darkness universe is, Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is nothing but a total disappointment.

    Overall, Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is a game with a great premise but it fails to hit the mark. Players will find themselves torn between the more enjoyable stealth gameplay and the more efficient open combat approach, all while clunky dialogue and distracting animations plague the cutscenes and interactions with other characters.

    If you love Werewolves then you must play this game. It's so much fun and definitely one of the better Werewolf games around.

    8/10 -> Just pretend the werewolf mode is the only mode in the game and you will have a lot of fun.

    1/10 -> The human form is laughably bad
    8/10 -> Just pretend the werewolf mode is the only mode in the game and you will have a lot of fun.

    1/10 -> The human form is laughably bad for the stealth section after what they achieved in their Styx series. You auto-crouch for some reason (with no crouch button) and the crossbow does the aiming for you. The enemy AI will always have their asses facing you or they're moving away from you. This on the Hard difficulty, mind you.

    5/10 -> The wolf form is there just to zip around the map. You can't even do a wolf chomping on the enemy's neck take-down. He auto shape-shifts back to his human form. Why?!

    So many odd decisions with the story presentation to crossbow ammo being placed everywhere in the enemy base to copy pasta tiny potted plants that give you spirit XP...if you turn on your Penumbra vision.

    Giving an 8 just so that they'll stay in business. Just make Styx 3 or something like it.

    Loads of fun in terms of combat. The game actually made me really enjoy stealth! Which is something I've always struggled with in games.Loads of fun in terms of combat. The game actually made me really enjoy stealth! Which is something I've always struggled with in games. Graphically I think it's a pretty damn pretty game, the only thing that lets it down is the NPC character models. I enjoyed the story, the look of the areas, the main character as well as their badass werewolf models! Expand

    When i first saw this badarse looking, hard core masculine looking Were Wolf beater slasher I thought it could be the perfect game.
    It is not !!!,its pretty trash. Everything is low tallent, low budget , unfinished and just dated in every way. Combat is some fun, the skill tree is passable. But stealth is brocken , its like ps2 stealth. The biggest insault is the npcs facial animations. They are obots.. This team need to re evaluate their carier goals. Maybe become journalist, seeing as they learnt to code and that didnt work out.. Hey maybe the game just needed a little crunch.. It needed something, cause there is no fire or passion showing in this project.

The repetition settles in very fast. I wouldve given it a 7 if the developers added dismemberment, but it lost points for that. Why make a werewolf game when you cant even rip your enemies to shreds? Anyway dont make the same mistake i did. This game is worth maybe 5 dollars at the most. Very dissapointed. Expand

It is essentially a game book. You are led from conversation to conversation, each one in turn. You are then led into a mission. The missions begin as stealth-game over if you are detected. But the AI is almost non-existent. Guards either stand in place waiting on you to stealth kill them, or travel a very limited path, waiting for you to evade, or stealth kill them.

    Each mission transitions from a stealth area to an area you're free to openly attack if you wish. This is the only part of the game that's fun-using the Crinos form to wreak havoc. It doesn't last long enough. This layout and pattern of stealth to havoc is basically copy/pasted through the whole game, with little variation.

    Near the end of missions, and in between missions there are cut scenes with graphics that would be more at home on a PS2. The writing and dialogue in these scenes is painfully shallow.

    Save your cash.

    Yeah, a 2 seems harsh, but hear me out. I first clicked on 1.

    This is flaunted as an RPG... it's not. The game takes you by the nose and forcefeeds you the story. I wasn't expecting open world, of course, but calling this that is... the word "exaggeration" isn't sufficient. Gross overstatement? False advertisement? I dunno. It's more like, "it has some RPG things thrown in to give you the impression that stuff matters at all."
    The combat mechanics are clunky. The camera fails miserably. The story could essentially not exist and it probably would create a better game in the sense that you wouldn't have expectations.
    The in-game graphics are the kind of thing that's unbelievably cool for early 2000's games.
    There's zero real customability when it comes to equipment unless you pay extra and get a couple of more skins, but in game? Forget about it. same weapon all along, same old same old.
    The sneaking around can be fun, but the combat and reaction is so clunky that half the time you can do something, and half not... like ambushing someone that's about to discover you.
    The main character has zero personality as well. He has the emotional range of an anvil, and the fact that he can rage at all is a miracle onto itself, given how his reactions to people close to him dying are delivered as flatly as humanly possible.
    The other characters (background in the Caern) are just... meh? Just there doing nothing until you talk to them. Hell, even in 8-bit games NPCs moved around and did stuff, you know? At the beginning of the game (no spoiler) your daughter is waiting for things to happen... a teen... just standing there like she's made of wood. You can literally go to her and won't even be able to talk to her until you finish a flag and talk to someone else. That's... lazy.
    Only good thing is the sneaking... up a point. And that point saves this from being a 1.
