    Werewolf: The Apocalypse- Earthblood is an entertaining enjoyable game. Cyanide Studio brings us a new tale of werewolves, letting us enjoy combats and the Crinos habilities. Despite not being the best of Cyanide's games, and its technical issues, it's an enjoyable and fun game.

    Despite having a really fun combat system and a good narrative, the game is weak on stealth and enemy AI.

    This third-person action game is a little rough around the edges and tries a little too hard to be serious, but its premise and combat is compelling enough to get the job done.

    We're stuck between a rock and a hard place with Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood, because while it definitely has its downsides (some of them potentially deal-breaking, especially if buying it at full price) we also enjoyed our time with it. Everything is built around its destructive combat, which remains engaging to the last, and if you're willing to deal with some average-at-best graphics, a mediocre story and a short running length, we still think you'll have a good time with this one. Give it a try, and it might just surprise you.

    Although there are some surprisingly strong stealth elements in the gameplay, Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood’s mediocre combat, dull characters, and boring plot makes this experience an average one at best.
  6. 55
    Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood fails to satisfy as a stealth game or a brawler, and is let down by poor AI and shoddy presentation. At its best, it’s playable, but commits the cardinal sin of just being boring.
  7. 30
    Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood has a lot of interesting ideas, but the boring and repetitive gameplay and lack of compelling story mean it fails to make a lasting impression.

Unfortunately the fake news mediaThis game reminds me of the classic Wolverine and old school God of War gameplay. It's an awesome game. Unfortunately the fake news media pundits aren't used to play actual video games anymore and just watch boring cinema third person over the shoulder garbage and call of duty casual stuff. Play this game I. Xbox Series S plays awesome. Expand

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is not a game to grab the attention of someone who happens to walk by while you're playing. TheWerewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is not a game to grab the attention of someone who happens to walk by while you're playing. The character models have freshly arrived fashionably late from a decade ago however the graphics do the job and suffer from no frame-rate issues. Earthblood seems love throw you straight into the wolves (pun intended) as the game starts off with a chat between you and a few members of your pack regarding your plan to sabotage a nearby location. A few minutes later things do not go as planned and you're sent into the fray to rescue your wife. By the time another half hour or so pass, you've inhabited all three of hero Cahal's forms, most of the game mechanics have been introduced, and sufficient drama has taken place. The story jogs along at this pace until the end, which works in Earthblood’s favor. The bulk of the game is made up of fairly small areas full of enemies, and it's about clearing your way to the exit so you can enter the next area. This is where the ability to change forms comes into play. In two-legged form Cahal can silently take down guards and shoot a crossbow. He can also sabotage reinforcement spawns if he remains undetected, dealing hefty damage to anybody who comes through. In wolf form meanwhile, he can move faster and slip through vents, great for a stealthy approach. There's also an un-lockable skill to make the wolf more difficult to detect. If you're cautious then you can make your way through a large amount of the adventure in stealth instead of combat. As soon as I would get hit or detected, I transform into the third, most powerful werewolf form used for combat. Combat is rather simple and the AI isn't overly challenging, and it's a bit of a button smasher with techniques throw in for good measure. Tearing through human enemies, occasionally grabbing one to rip apart is arcade style fun. When you're forced into combat after a bungled attempt to slip past in stealth mode, you benefit from having thinned out the enemies numbers, and weakened at least some of the enemy reinforcements. You may even have disabled turrets by accessing computers or shooting them with your crossbow. In this way, the time and effort you put into trying to be stealthy is still rewarded if you still happen to get detected. The story is largely self contained and doesn't require an understanding of lore. Another sign that the original vision for the game may have been grander than the budget is the implementation of choices or lack of at times. Conversations rarely offer any meaningful impact, and there are only a few occasions where you can approach a situation in different ways but those occasions are really big. Combat is arguably overly simple, and rarely a challenge on any of the difficulty settings. The inability to backtrack or create multiple saves means the rare instances of choice are one-shots. I've played Earthblood start to finish a couple times and enjoyed it each time which means something is there. It's a B-movie experience overall and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I happen to love a well done B movie and Earthblood jut happens to be one I did enjoy. Even if you decide not to pick this one up immediately be sure to add it to your wishlist; you’ll be glad you did. Expand
