Werewolf the Apocalypse: Earthblood – Review

Werewolf the Apocalypse: Earthblood is something as unusual as a sheep in wolf clothes – a game completely without bites.

The mustache is stately, you can still give it to Cahal – the grim protagonist of Cyanides Werewolf the Apocalypse: Earthblood. The long title cannot hide how stone-dead this mixture of role-playing, action and stealth actually is, or what a sleepy wooden buck Cahal is. It’s an extra big problem when he should be a wolf.

Werewolf is based on the World of Darkness role-playing game, and takes place in the same universe as Vampire the Masquerade. We can really hope that Bloodlines 2 gets better than this piano tramp, though, because that apocalypse in the title reasonably refers to the game itself.

The story is just a collection of tired clich├ęs that are reeled in by half-baked actors and rigidly directed interludes. You are a werewolf with a beautiful mustache who fights against an evil company that poisons the planet and brings to life a so-called “wyrm”, which will lead to the doom of the earth. In addition, they kill Cahal’s wife, something he does not directly appreciate.

Briefly

What is it?

A mix of stealth games, action and role-playing that does not succeed very well on any level.

If you are a werewolf, you should probably fight in the moonlight, that’s part of it.
