Natural Doctrine  



Natural Doctrine still looks ugly, but it might be fun


3:00 PM on 07.12.2014



Natural Doctrine isn't exactly good-looking, but it's a strategy role-playing game with a protagonist named Jeff. I like strategy role-playing games. They're some of my favorites. And Jeffs are okay, I guess.

It's not like I'm going to just take one look at those graphics and think "Oh man, this is terrible. I can't play this. I give up" the entire time. Come on, that would just be silly. This is a strategy role-playing game with a dude named Jeff. It's probably half decent.

Natural Doctrine will arrive this September for PlayStation platforms.

Review: Natural Doctrine

Natural Doctrine is a strategy role-playing game with a sadistic side. It's a brutal and uncompromising experience, one keen on taxing players and pushing them to their limits with its intense difficulty. The architects behin...more

Natural Doctrine multiplayer set to inconsistent, yet still good music

The music goes from weird rock to just weird to typical RPG orchestral sounding. And still sounds alright.  Natty Doc (Natural Doctrine), the brutal, sort of ugly turn-based strategy game, also has mutliplayer...more

Natural Doctrine is a brutal, sort of ugly turn-based strategy game

Sure, Natural Doctrine doesn't look great (well, the environments; it does look better in miniature on the Vita). It's a far cry from director Atsushi Ii's gorgeous minimalism in Patapon. But Kadokawa Games' first intern...more

NIS takes us to an island paradise, battles us, then travels back in time

NIS was a bit of a hidden treasure at E3. The publisher shared a booth with Atlus and it took me stopping and actually looking at what was on display at the demo station to put two and two together. The search was well worth it because I was rewarded with a closer look at three upcoming titles: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited, and Natural Doctrine.more

Natural Doctrine videos show uninterrupted gameplay, bare thighs

Hah, okay, this is still a bit confusing. I'm still not sure how the boxes work. Maybe they're range stat based and actions doesn't take moves separately from movement. But then why would there be a series of boxes? Also, wh...more
