This game is hilarious in the same way someone falling down a flight of stairs is hilarious. What I mean by that is it's horrible, but it's still sickly funny in that "How could someone (FUN Creations) mess up that badly?". The only difference being that you want to help someone up who's fallen down some stairs, but in this case, the dude is gonna take seven dollars from your pocket. That cactus needle can go fall down another flight for all I care, that was my lunch money.


My only observations on this game have been said a million times before, buggy, terrible looking, voice actin' is pretty bad, etc. Now I always laughed whenever I saw how deep the rabbit hole went in reference to these qualities, but I'm fairly sure not everyone will see it that way.


Well, okay, it's soundtrack isn't.... Terrible.


Point is, unless it's on sale, I wouldn't get it. Even when it's on sale, I would only get it if you're the kind of dude who likes laughing at bad game design. I guess you'll also get access to it's not so terrible music in the music player, and you can get some trading cards as well... So, um, yay?


Maybe send it as a joke gift? I dunno.


Of course, this is all my opinion. Cross reference mine with others and see if it's a game for you, but it's certainly not on my reccomendations list (Even if I did enjoy it to some extent).


The Bottom Line: Guise Of The Wolf is a game you get for the lelz.

Guise Of The Wolf is easily one of the worst games I have ever played. The idea is not so bad, but the implementation is horrible.

Just from the start of the game, you can see that the only options are music/sound and language select. No resolution, graphics, controls or anything. The game has many bugs and glitches, it crashes, and even has performance problems. It has lag spikes on my AMD FX 8320 8 core, 8GB RAM, AMD R9 270X, where I run every game on max. The gameplay is really boring, there are a few ''puzzles'' which are almost the same, they are either too easy or make completely no sense. The NPCs do not even move or teleport, they just stay in one place and say 1-2 standard lines. Aslo, their talking animation made me laugh so hard. There are only four characters in this game, counting yourself. The game is pretty confusing too. Lots of times it gives no clues as to what you have to do, and sometimes you have to do some pretty weird stuff. The combat is horrible you can run from the guards as they are too slow and won't hit you, and after you get past them they will quickly forget about you and get back to the work of standing still. If you do choose to fight back and kill them, the game hardly seems to notice. If two guards are standing on either side of a door and you kill one, then transform back into a human, you can speak to the other guard as if nothing at all happened. The most common obstacle you’ll come across (besides locked doors) are locked chests. Each time you open one, you’ll play through the same minigame in which you have four buttons that rotate one or two of the four tumblers in the lock. As a one-time puzzle, this could have been mildly amusing. Instead it comes back over, and over, and over again, never getting any harder or less tedious. The game is also really short, you can finish it in 2 hours... if you can play this game for that long. The map system is horrible. not even a icon showing you exactly where you are all it does is highlight the area.

The graphics are horrible, it looks like it was made an decade ago, feels amateurish and unfinished in every aspect. Textures are lazy and all the same, it has no real enviorment effect, other than a crappy snow. The only good thing about this game is the soundtrack, it is pretty nice, however the voice acting is a joke. The cutscenes are not skippable, and it also has big loading times for a game like this.

Stay away for this game, don't play it even for free. 2/10. The developers should be ashamed, in my opinion this unfinished game was made to cash-grab from werewolves lovers.

I don't even know.
The idea of it is meh.
The game itself works, but isn't overly amazing.
Black lines everywhere (which inspired Orion: Prelude to use black lines; equally as bad)
Was free, I regret nothing.

This game is not only terrible but hazardous to one's health. Getting a circumcision without anesthetic or having a pit bull bite your nads, would be a more enjoyable experience than this game. But I now know that it "HELPS TO HAVE A MAP!"

I got this game from a random code drop, so I'd like to thank the person for giving me some more steam trading cards.

Most people already know how terrible this game is, if you don't, buy it so you too can experience this travesty.

Guise of the Wolf delivers where many AAA titles have faltered. Truly, this is a remarkable breakthrough in not only gaming but the oil industry as well. The studio behind this masterpiece have made their entrance into the gaming world and it looks like they'll be sticking around. My sense of smell actually feels heightened and I can feel the tingling hairs on my nipples as they grow tenfold. Can you smell what the ROCK is cookin? I smell a sequel, do you? But I digress, reviewing time baby.

The game throws away unconventional and worthless things like clipping. You, the player of masterpieces, have nearly infinite freedom. No longer will we be limited to roads and paths, this is the FUTURE. The first rock you encounter will have something special cooking inside of it, so make sure you go in there and look! You won't want to leave.

Next, we do away with voice acting. These NPC's do not know what acting is! They are alive! Each one of them feels like a dear friend and every person you encounter shares a special memory with you. When they are harmed you can truly feel their anguish and pain. Don't even get me started on the wolf. It's just like Jakob from Twilight. Hell, I even named him Jakob. He is unmatched in his CGI cutscenes, nearly ruining every other game character with the sheer awesomeness of an ability called existence. The dialogue is very open and you even have the option to say things in different orders. Sometimes, I forget it's a game and howl into the night. Say farewell to your life because this game truly absorbs you into its dark atmosphere. I won't spoil the plot. I can't even fully comprehend it. Its complexity cannot be adequately appreciated until I complete a novel version. I've already written 9,001 pages and I've barely touched 12% of the whole plot.

You see my friends, you MAKE the plot. The creators took a gamble and allowed YOU, the player of masterpieces, to create your own story. It leaves many plot holes on purpose for your imagination to fill in, making the replay value infinity.

Beware, once you start this game you may contract a disease known as "Large Dong". I'll let the details be a surprise, but know that you won't want it to be cured. Keep napkins closeby as the female lead is a true Goddess. Her beautiful voice echoes forever in your mind and you'll spend the vast majority of the game not actually playing but searching for this divine Amazonian. She'll always be near you. She watches over the player giving advice and health potions from time to time. You'll fall in love rather quickly.

Make sure you check the map often. It really helps, the guards told me so and they've seen everything. Not to mention they're incredibly handsome. If you find that your cannot contain you primitive lust I must warn you to be extremely careful when patting them down. The one named Jesom specifically likes his left ear stroked gently. Try it, you'll get a extra 15 gold.

Play on, friends. This game is the greatest buy of my life, and I bought twelve ladyboys for a night.

AWRHOOOOOO!








AWHROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought this game because of the many reviews and wanted to see for myself if it's really that bad. It is...

This is the most amateurish game i've ever played. Everything is unispired and lazy.
That stupid black outline everywhere, the robotic, visibly resetting animations on the guards, the floating animations on the other NPCs, not explained game mechanics, clipping issues.... i better stop before this list gets to long.

Should i tell about the combat and stealth mechanics?... no they are not worth mentioning because not existend.

It's a shame because the concept is interesting, the atmosphere and lighting are good and i liked the music but you can't enjoy it with all the issues.

To say it with the wise words of the robot-guards: "Keep your bloody distance!"... from this game

pro:
- +1 perfect game for my achievement list
- you can play through this masterpiece in ~40 min so you don't have to suffer to long
- it's good for a few laughs

contra:
- i had to play it... 3 times
- 5 wasted hours
- i paid 0,75€... to much

Dear "FunCreators,"

I'm laughing my ♥♥♥ off at how terrible you are at developing a game. If you weren't a bunch of greedy scammers, then I'd probably laugh my ♥♥♥ off even more, but that's the problem...I can't just laugh at what a terrible job you did. You have to be like other developers (even AAA devs) who release unfinished and terrible products just they can shaft people into buying their f*cking pieces of sh*t.

Games like Day One Garry's Incident cause me to do a double take on how hilariously awful the game itself is. And then there are games like Guise of the Wolf, which cause me to genuinely ask myself why I played such a trainwreck, if not why I play video games at all.

I had hoped to 100% complete this game... It was just too bad I just didn't have the mentality to bear it in all its awful-ness glory. After about 2.5 hours no-clipping walls and rocks (And having to quit the game and return to the desktop cause I got stuck in a wall), and having no clear idea what it was I was doing, I just gave up entirely.

The only good aspects I can come up with for this game are that it has cards, and it doesn't take too long to get all the achievements.

1/10 GG Would not receive in a trade again -_-

Edit: I never really bothered pointing out anything related to the story or the audio, as I just couldn't care enough to turn on my speakers for this OR bother with the dialogue/story in its entirity. I'm sorry.
Now that I have nothing else to say, I'll go cry in a corner because that's what this game has done to me: Driven me to the point of irretrievable insanity. I'm sorry, I can't do this anymore! :rcry:

I regained consciousness about the strange lock, my carriage was destroyed by an animal. About my God! My driver was gone, László where you? I wandered at walls of the lock and found it, but it was already dead it something killed. I moved in lock gate consciousness I regained consciousness in a bedchamber where I was met by the daughter Isabel column. Now I learned all evil what to be poisoned in this lock. I packed the things and I moved further.
Having stolen a key from the policeman I got to the cellar and I found the person locked in a cage. The captive was presented Filchem and told that the count locked it and prepares to take control of all. Having released Filcha I met it in kitchen and started preparing 1 potion (here I found 1 transformation into the werewolf) the Lycanthropy. Wandering on a dark vault of this lock in search of ingredients at last I find the necessary. I mix hurrah! my potion is ready. the daughter Isabel column tells truth of the count and gives akonit.
All parts of a puzzle met together, and I realized Filch was the first alchemist the comer here he created a damnation by order of the count. After it I rose against Artemis having refused to create 1 more potion.

Entering a conference hall I see the count Artemis he tells about all ominous acts... About my God Isabel! She was that werewolf who chased me on the lock, about there is no Isabel... You will pay the count!!! I do the decisive course. Isabel refuses to take a potion, suggesting to recover most.

I don't want to tell about graphics, the main thing only here history which I received. My assessment = 5\10

At first, the atmosphere seemed to be very immersive, but soon you are faced with terrible character models and awful dialogues, which kinda break it. The story is quite interesting, although simple. The game is pretty confusing too. Lots of times it gives no clues as to what you have to do, and sometimes you have to do some pretty weird stuff, like hanging an amulet on a random statue, or pickpocketing a key without even being told you can pickpocket. I am a huge fan of werewolf related stuff, which is why I bought this, but I was rather disappointed. Overall it isn´t terrible, but it feels a lot like a test or early access game, so with a few updates it could become pretty decent, since the main idea and settings are great.

I was hoping this game would be good. Unfortunately, I can not in good conscience recommend this game. First off, the map is horrible in the game. It doesn't tell you where you are, where you need to be, no hints, nothing. You stumble through the game with absolutely no direction or hints.
I can overlook the horrible character models and cheesy dialogue, but the whole "Stuck wandering around in hopes that i'll stumble on the right thing" is a big turn off.

okay first off i wanna say that i kinda dig this game, its got an interesting story that doesnt give you many hints so you have to figure things out for yourself which can get kinda frustrating. BUT...this game is so new and poorly develped that it has so many glitches.

these glitches will scare the sh*t out of you. no lie. they happen completely at random and are not expected at all. these glitches include but ARE NOT LIMITED TO:

-walking up to NPCs that are scared of you because they know you are a warewolf and a LOUD, GLITCHY, WEARWOLF GROWL PLAYED ON FULL BLAST QUEUES IN. so at first its like peacefull music and then LOUD SCARY GLTICH NOISES FOLLOWED BY RAPID NPC MOVEMENTS.

-character bugging. at times after completing cirtain quests sometimes the charachter your supposed to talk to, glitches out and becomes only HALF a charachter. His face is missing, the whole front half of his body is missing. its freaky as hell.

these are the two biggest things that killed this game for me. I was rather enjoying the game but after being scared sh*tless like that i cant go on. sorry guys, im a ♥♥♥♥♥ but i cant do it.

A scary horror game is a scary horror game. this was not ment to be a horror game, the glitches MADE it a horror game.
