Reviews of Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood

It seems that Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood is not a particularly successful game. This is indicated by the averages of review scores on Metacritic (55%) and OpenCritic (56%, with only 26% of critics choosing to recommend the game to readers or viewers). Fans of the World of Darkness may find something to enjoy in the title, but the rest will probably bounce back from the repetitive and archaic gameplay and not very gripping storyline. The visuals are also poor, giving the title a low-budget feel.

"Cyanide Studios have proven their mettle with previous games in the supernatural genre. Their previous efforts include Styx: Shards of Darkness and the Call of Cthulhu. Both games were well received. Earthblood is a solid effort that should get werewolf fans howling with glee," Lou Sytsma, COGConnected (score - 80/100).

"By the time I reached the end of the campaign, I felt like I’d gotten on the wrong train and ended up in a city far away from the one I’d planned to visit. I thought I’d be brought into a pack of werewolves, taught their secret ways, and be tempted into giving into the call of the wild. Instead, I ripped the faces off dudes putting too much C02 into the atmosphere," Alexander Eriksen, gamepressure (score - 6/10).

"Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood has decent stealth going for it, but its weak story forces you into painfully mediocre combat too often to be worthwhile, wasting the potential of the World of Darkness universe," Leana Hafer, IGN (score - 4/10).
