Doom and Doom II cleared for release in Germany

Id Software’s classic shooters have been unavailable in Germany since their release, with the country’s Federal Department For Media Harmful To Young Persons putting both games in the same category as pornography. Bethesda Softworks recently appealed the ruling, and it has proven successful. “We are obviously very pleased with this decision,” Bethesda’s Pete Hines told Joystiq. “Can’t give you details on when they will be available in Germany, [but] we’ll let everyone know as soon as we know.”
