A sad day for the DOOM 3 fans in Germany as publisher Activision did not manage to receive a rating for its game, and therefore cannot sell the newest expansion 'Resurrection of Evil' in German retail stores. Co-developed by Nerve Software and id Software, DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil continues the terrifying and intense action of the already classic DOOM 3.

I think it's payback for WWI and WWII.

Poor Germany, they went from almost taking over the world twice, to banning games because they're "too violent".

I know Germany has been pretty strict when it comes to violence in videogames (though they used to be much worse, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter couldn't be published until they removed all the human enemies from the game and changed the blood from red to green), but I'm surprised they wouldn't just pass RoE off with the same rating as Doom 3 and call it a day.

Believe me there'd be hell to pay if they did. The video games industry has grown to be bigger than hollywood already.

Its also bigger than the music industry. Also, from what I've heard the pr0n industry is still the biggest. But I'm not surprised, it IS the pr0n industry.

My friend is schooling in Germany right now. Beer is cheaper than soda. So to even things out they take away all the cool video games.

I have no reason why they don't sell it here. I mean, Doom3 was a huge succes. And I don't think that RoE is more violent than the original one. Maybe Activision is just tired of translating all the stuff...

Its all coz in Australia there is no rating for adult games, so therefore they are just banned. If we had an R18+ rating that was upheld by retailers I guess not as many games would banned.

I'm not too worried though, of all games banned here none of them were all that crash hot anyway... i mean, Larry 8, Manhunt, Singles, Postal 2
