Counter a lot, and don't ever sit still. They're beatable, it's just the difficulty is ramped way up compared to rabbits.

In many cases, getting detected at all is a death sentence, since fighting more than one wolf at a time is bad news. Try to sneak up and insta-kill from behind when you can, when other wolves won't notice. Fight with weapons instead of fists when possible.

Sneaking doesn't work, they are too fast and they will smell you first

By sneaking I think he means doing the Rabbit run, which is done by holding shift and pressing W then releasing shift while still holding W. ..Or something like that. Anyway, wolves are extremely difficult, yes. But beatable. Easiest way is to counter, then kick them on the ground and wait for them to stand up then punch them immediatly after they stand and then send a kick to their face. They will fly and end up on the ground once again that's when you repeat the process. If you do it right they basically become a ragdoll punching bag and can't do anything to hurt you while you're beating them up. Just be very careful though as they can kill you in one hit with those kicks.

They can only smell the blood on your knife

Well, if you confuse them by flipping, you can do all kinds of moves against him. Also, if you have a sword (Knives work to but are more difficult), knock them on the ground then quickly hold SHIFT then click. You will stab him on the ground, instantly killing him. I killed the end-game boss this way. I killed him in two shots!!

You can do it with stalves too!

THANK YOU, finally something that can get me starting on playing the rest of the game!

Oh, also, if you have a bloody knife or sword, stab it into the ground to clean off the blood, so they can't smell it. This lets you sneak up on one, stab him, sneak up on the next, etc.

I swear swords are completely useless in this game, I've only ever got about 3 hits in on low level rabbits, whenever it's actual combat it's just a back and forth of counter disarming.

dude, I was stuck ages ago, I'm good now

If you really want to use an exploit, use the jump kick. The penalty for failing it is pretty low, and if you pull it off it's completely brutal, especially when you smack one guy into another guy!
Of course when a wolf is on to your tactic he'll counter every time. That's when you just need to jump around and flip a bit and attack him from another angle.
Not that I encourage using exploits, but if you're absolutely stuck, it may help you out.

Dammit, CARE that there's a knife in your chest!

Another "tactic" you can use:
-Get a knife
-While in combat with a wolf, jump and flip
The wolf will roll or backflip in a semi-random direction
Sometimes, depending on what angle you are facing compared to the wolf, you can trick them into rolling towards you.
Now you have about a second to get somewhat behind them and then back-stab them. If you don't make it in time, or if they didn't roll close enough to you, just try it again.

Another method I employ frequently (but with less success) is to throw a sword into the wolf (usually while in the air and while rolling), then counter/leg-sweep them, then roll and pull the knife out -- it's an instant kill if you manage it.

I've found swords to be very effective -- the only move that beats swinging a sword is a leg-sweep kick, and even those don't always work vs a sword. (Just remember to hold down the mouse button so start swinging the sword as soon as an enemy is in range.)

The only seemingly "legitimate" method of killing wolves without weapons (ie no AI exploits) is continually leg-sweeping them. A fortunate side effect is that if they are attacking you, the act of pressing "shift" will counter them automatically (unless you have bad timing).
