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.

    See past the low-budget looks, and you’ll find this is no shaggy dog tale. It’s a well-paced adventure that’s worth sinking your teeth (and claws) into. [Issue#185, p.85]

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood won’t be remembered for long and that’s fine – by the time I got to writing this summary, I couldn’t really remember it, either. It’s not terrible and I can see some great ideas just begging for a bigger budget. The stealth is poor but has potential, and the combat is simple, samey Prototype-esque fun that could have been more. The story and the presentation are the real let-downs here and you’d be better served throwing on some thrash-metal and muting the game while you play.

    Much like the warring tribes in the board game that this title is based on, the various ideals that make up this game don't quite work together as you would hope they would. Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood tries valiantly to tell a story while getting you to think and move smart. Ultimately however, the game boils down to a technically proficient, yet repetitive button masher with minimal next gen trimmings and a sense that this game could have been a whole lot more than it is.

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood feels like it had the potential to be really good, but even though the combat is very satisfying, the drab interludes and disappointing stealth meant I spent a lot of the time asking when the game was going to be over. To me, that speaks volumes.

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood has a good premise, but suffers from poor execution. If you’re looking for a game that allows you to live out the fantasy of being an overpowered werewolf and kill everyone around you in bloody fashion, Werewolf provides that, but only just. Unrewarding combat, dumber-than-a-doorknob AI, dated mechanics, and an uninspiring presentation mean that this is a tough recommendation at the launch MSRP of $49.99 US.

    I did have some nuggets of fun with Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, but there's too much I can't ignore to recommend it to anyone, especially with the dawn of next-gen systems and titles that execute their concepts much better and simply look like what current games should be.

    The sorta-good news about Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is that it might just be one of those games that’s so laughably bad and over-the-top stupid that it’s almost, kind of, in a way…fun. I wouldn’t ever suggest paying full price for this game. I wouldn’t even suggest buying it unless it’s down to well, well, well below $10 (or maybe even under $5). But if you can get it for, say, two or three dollars? Then the laughs you’ll get out of all of this nonsense might just be worth it.

The tech behind this game is definitely outdated although the loading times are very good and especially the morphing is super fluent. Facial animations are horrible and some combat movement can feel clunky but overall the combat felt very fun. It is pretty button-mashy but still fun. The story is not bad but very simple and even in its short playtime a bit repetitive. Without much hazzle I finished the game on normal within 6hrs and 80% of trophies. Now the game comes already at a budgeted price so that is something to keep in mind. There already sales for around 30 bucks making the short gameplay still somewhat worthy.

    If you feel like shutting your brain off and delievering hefty gory blows then this game got you covered. Some mechanics are very good but not well used. Overall there is always a combat and a stealth path which is nice. The world does not give much variety but is manageable. On the bright side I did not have any slow downs on PS5, load times were excellent. I encountered no bugs and no bluescreens or freezes.

    I can see this game being more brilliant on a modern engine. I guess for around 20 bucks you cannot go too wrong if you keep the simple gameplay in mind and lower your expectations a bit. I enjoyed my playthrough!

    Werewolf the Apocalypse Earthblood
    The same thing from start to finish
    It’s the environment vs the oil companies, youre a werewolf on a rescue mission, first to rescue the earth, and then to rescue your daughter.
    This is a 6 hour long 3rd person stealth action game where you play as Cahal, basically the game is the same from start to finish, a mission starts in your little hub world, from a forest, to a desert, you run to the marker on the map, sneak into the oil field, onceinside there are guards so you have the choice of stelathfully sneak around, take enemies down from behind, transform into a wolf for a speed and to squeeze into vents, or at the very least you can sneak around to sabotage the influx of guards, as if things go wrong youll instanty transform into a werewolf…
    At first being a werewolf feels amazing, you feel like you have god like power just tearing through enemies… and though there is a tiny skill tree here, there isn’t enough done in this combat to make earthblood any fun inside of its combat, youll find yourself trying your best to sneak through areas just so you don’t have to deal with what feels like an endless wave of spongey enemies… the basic enemies you kill in like one hit, but the large enemies and the enemeies with shields its just mashing and mashing until they are dead, making sure you take out the enemies with silver bullets as you cant regain that health during battles… thankfully sneaking around is satisfying, its fun to try and stealth your way through, though you aren’t given enough tools to make the charm of stealth even last, some areas stealth is just impossible, you cant take out every enemy in the game, youre given bolt that you can take out cameras with or head shot basic enmies, but even those you feel limited with what you can actually do, and in wolf form you can bark and hope you get the attention of the guard you want to move without giving away your position and forcing combat anyway.. as the enemy ai here just annoyingly hovers around your area and refuse to move if youre seen even a little bit, so a lot of the times after reading the room, to save time and effort I would just instantly go into werewolf form….
    And ultimately the story here isn’t intriguing enough to want to pull you through its 6 hour run time… pretty lame boss battles, repetitive mission structure and even repetive environments and locations, the game looks and feels the same from start to finish, it never wows you with cool areas or levels.. its all the same… thankfully earthblood does have its moments of okay, this is pretty fun, it does feel great instantly switching into a wolf to sneak by enemies and take them out, but that fun if dampened by the spongey button mashy unfun combat..
    I give Werwolf the Apocalypse Earthblood
    a 6.5/10

    Game developers have a hard time in the Corona era. This game is also a child of this time and you can see it everywhere.
    It feels like a pimped PS3 game. But that's a Series S / X that we have today.
    You could get over that if you didn't have to pay 50 € for it. Make it cheaper otherwise nobody will buy it anymore.

Story is OK at best and combat can be fun but definitely gets boring after about an hour or two in. Bargain bin buy is my best recommendation if you like werewolves but besides that I’d stay away.
