Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Very good

I have a 11 year old son and he has been begging my for this game so I got it for him. I thought it was going to be very violent and gory but it’s actually not that bad. The great thing is you can switch off gore and violence so the game skips all the nasty stuff. There is no swearing and if violence is on there is no violence towards humans (fantasy violence). It’s a great game to play with your friends my son has a real fun time when he is playing with his friends. I really recommend this game.

Great Game, some concerns

before i say anything, i want to put this out there: THIS GAME DOES NOT PROMOTE SATANISM, THE WHOLE PLOT OF THE GAME IS TO KILL DEMONS NOT HELP THEM. I've played the DOOM games for a while now, they are really fun, they say they are 17+ but i dissagree, it is a violent game, but it has been proven over and over again that video games DO NOT cause violence, the media will take school shootings and blame it on video games the shooter played such as doom or call of duty, and ignore the other issues in that persons life what im trying to say is the violence wont mold your kid into a serial killer who rips peoples faces off. yes,it has alot of gore, the main character isnt evil though, hes trying to save humanity, so it isnt a bad role model of a character eithier. honestly id recommend it for kids 13+, it shouldnt be for little kids considering that they are too young to see violence of this level, but its not just for adults with freetime. it is for teenagers and above.
