‘Natural Doctrine’ Review

Natural Doctrine is reminiscent of games like Dark Souls in terms of the incredible difficulty. The game goes beyond the point of being just challenging – in fact it gets to the point of being punishing, which could be good or bad depending on your preferences. Natural Doctrine is a game that will be loved by some and hated by many. This game is brutal. The game follows the poorly named Geoff who is essentially every JRPG protagonist ever rolled into one and nothing more. The game has next to no story at all but what it does have focuses on the concept of natural selection. While it is an interesting idea the game rarely gives players any context for the situations they find themselves in. The story is simply weak at best and the characters are terrible at worst.

Natural Doctrine – Western Release Date Announced

Haven’t heard of ‘Natural Doctrine’? That’s ok, until a week or two ago I was in the same shoes as you. ‘Natural Doctrine’, like a lot of RPGs out there, is set in a fantasy world populated by a slew of different races and species, some nice but others evil. As the player, you control a guard soldier named Jeff who’s main job in life is to venture out into dangerous places, wiping out benevolent forces and making it safe to travel to therefor opening the area up to be examined and excavated for its natural resources.
