Overall: I rented this game before renting the movie. Had I have rented the horrible movie first, I never would have rented this horrible game.. saving myself MORE time. I wish I never rented either one. This game is pretty bad, though I like some elements.. overall this came only kept me entertained for an hour.
Gameplay: The game does have some unique weapons that are only seen in the rare RPG games the grace the XBOX.. so if you like using clubs, arrows, slings, you will like that aspect of this game. The controls are easy to learn off the bat.. but the story hardly keeps you interested. There are some creepy moments in the game, I give them credit for creating a decent atmosphere, but overall there is nothing to make me come back to this game.
Graphics: The graphics are average. The character models are decent and the weapon effects are pretty good, but the environments are pretty shotty. There is some good lighting here, which gives it its creepy atmosphere.. but at times they over do it, making it too dark.
Sound: The sounds in this game are pretty crappy. The weapon sounds seem like 16bit soundbytes you can get form the NES days. Some neat music is used in cutscenes and in the menus.. but nothing ingame to keep your attention.
Suggestions: I heard they're making a sequel to the movie. Big mistake. Don't make a sequel to the game.

Overall: I was really looking forward to buying this game cause i thought it would be as good as the movie but it actually really wasnt.The camera wasnt that good i didnt know were i was going, there could of been more weapons to use!, could of also been more melee moves to do , whats with them jumping? haha i found it funny cause in the movie he only jumped like that when he was becoming a werewolf lol they could of made him jump like jackie chan or something ,i bet it within a week , and finally I WAS LOOKING FOWARD TO BEING A WEREWOLF AT THE END JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIE!!!I WANTED TO CLAW THAT VAMPIRE TO DEATH BUT IT ONLY SHOWS VAN TRANSFROM IN A CUTSCENCE AND BLAH THE VAMPIRE IS DEAD.
Gameplay: the game play was alright but i thought it could be more fun like have more melee weapons like throwing knifes or something? and more guns like ummm lets say a gun that shoots disks and they blow up on impact? sound good? and the camera geeze like i said in the overall description i didnt know where i was going
Graphics: good visuals man it was dark , spooky , and well good i guess
one thing they could of done here is lightin up some areas cause i was walking down a hall way and i died thanks to those fell spirits or whatever there called
Sound: good music it matched the level areas good and it was spooky i found maybe others wont but o well thats there opinion.
Suggestions: ummmm if u make another game that involves werewolfs make them controlable so i can kill people haha cause werewolfs are sooooooo cool but anyways it was a good game could of touched up on a few things but alright to play. C ya
