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]

    Absolutely dated in so many ways with crusty stealth gameplay, poor visuals and uninspiring environments, yet showing glimmers of innovation that are in turn bolstered by bouts of super satisfying werewolf combat, Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is the first proper guilty pleasure of the year.

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood starts off on the right note, engaging players with the type of action I imagine werewolf fans will find exciting. It quickly runs out of puff, though, and what excitement there is to be had is spoiled by too much tedium in between. Ultimately, enthusiasts of the Apocalypse TRPG are unlikely to feel satiated by what is a rather shallow video game experience overall, which makes it difficult to recommend to those outside the hardcore fanbase.

    You can see Cyanide Studios had good ideas for Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood, so it is a shame to see that potential wasted. Tearing through enemies is undeniably satisfying and Earthblood’s stealth mechanics feel rewarding but with poor visuals, a short campaign, and disappointing story, you can’t ignore these pressing flaws. Cyanide has faithfully integrated Werewolf’s lore here – even if that is a little bare – so tabletop series fans will likely enjoy it, but anyone else would best approach with caution.

    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.

    Despite its B-game charms, it is difficult to recommend Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood outright. Many of its elements feel somewhat incomplete or lacking. Even the competency of the combat only works on a surface level and is unlikely to keep people coming back for more. Still, there is some joy to be had here, even if some of it is unintentional. There may not be a gripping story or numerous engaging gameplay systems, but with the right state of mind there’s a decent, mindless weekend brawl to be had.

    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

    نادر ما تلعب لعبة كاملة عن المستذئبين أو مصاصي الدماء وقله هذا النوع من الألعاب المفترض أن يكون دافع في نجاحها. السبب الأساسي لأي شخص أن يلعبنادر ما تلعب لعبة كاملة عن المستذئبين أو مصاصي الدماء وقله هذا النوع من الألعاب المفترض أن يكون دافع في نجاحها. السبب الأساسي لأي شخص أن يلعب هذا النوع من الألعاب هو الإثارة والوناسة في القتال ومحاربة الأعداء ولكن اللعبة ما قدمت هذا الشي بشكل صحيح. نظام اللعبة بشكل عام يستذكرني بنظام الألعاب القديمة في طريقة التوصيل ولكن المطورين ضافوا بعض الأماكن المفتوحة في اللعبة. ال RPG باللعبة كان جدا بسيط ومبدئي، التصوير كان فيه الكثير من العيوب بالإضافة إلى بعض القلشات والموسيقى ما كانت متوازنة ولا في محلها في بعض اللقطات. قصة اللعبة جدا عادية والحوار كان غريب وما فيه أي إحساس وكأن الشخصيات آليين! بشكل عام اللعبة مقبولة ولعل أهم شي ينقصها هو الإثارة الفعلية في محاربة الأعداء.

    من الآخر:

    1- اللعبة مقبولة ولكنها ما تعطي الإثارة الفعلية للاعب في وقت القتال الا وإن الإثارة/الحماس هو أهم شي في هذا النظام من الألعاب.

    2- نظام ال RPG باللعبة كان جدا بسيط ومبدئي، التصوير كان فيه الكثير من العيوب بالإضافة إن الأشكال ما تواكب ألعاب العصر الحالي والموسيقى ما كانت متوازنة.

    3- شخصيا واجهت قلشات مختلفة باللعبة وبسبب أحدها إضطريت أعيد مهمة كاملة من البداية!

    4- اللعبة ممكن تعجب محبين Word of Darkness.

Just wow, looks like a PS3 and Xbox 360 eraWas so disappointed in the visuals of this game, especially since I got it for next gen consoles. Just wow, looks like a PS3 and Xbox 360 era game. 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.
