This has been posted like 5 other times, but it has been a while since the last thread died.
But still, it's alright. Controlling the wolf is pretty hard, but maybe that's just my play style.

The controls are terrible and the rest of the game isn't much compensation.

It's still quite retarded.

For one, the graphics requirements are massive for something with such unimpressive graphics. And even though my hardware vastly surpasses them, my FPS varies from things like 14 to 53 for no reason. Even when it is up in the 50's the game still looks like I'm getting say... 8 FPS.

It comes up with a controls setup menu when the game is installed... and later promptly ignores what's set up in it and gives me default settings. And for some reason that menu has "fire3" as a joystick button. Why the hell does a wolf have "fire3" and why do I need my joystick to control one?

Maybe I'll get lucky and that button still fires rockets...

EDIT: Though I have no idea how, I stabilized the FPS in the high 60's through reinstall. This with highest settings (which here, sadly only refers to draw distance and the presence of shadows. I'm gonna fark with my nVIDIA control panel and force anti aliasing to see if that makes it look better).

EDIT2: The FPS still has its random moments actually. I can't see why, because the terrain is so unremarkable, and there isn't any noticeable reason to load slower nor programs in the background. Running 4x anti aliasing didn't have much effect I could see, nor did it lower my FPS. In fact that has varied up to the 70's since I applied that, again for no distinguishable reason.

As for actual gameplay, there are some oddities. For example, the sensitivity for mouse-controlled movement and keyboard-controlled movement is set with the same slider, but the keyboard is much more sensitive whereas the mouse is almost useless.

The interactions, especially combat are... primitive. And turn-based, which makes it seem almost funny. It's like a retarded version of Hybrid Heaven, a game for the N64 which none of you will have heard of...

The AI seems almost non-existant, but given what's demanded of it by the system used, that doesn't make much difference. It is a bit weird to approach an NPC while it just stands there staring blankly though.

EDIT3: Higher anti aliasing is worth it if you have it.

Another weird thing: health, as in wounds, and hunger are the same thing. Not just in a "heal yourself instantly by eating" kind of way, but your health actually deteriorates slowly with hunger. On the plus side, if you were to somehow trip on the smooth, foliage-less ground, you could heal sprains and broken bones by eating dead things.
