Hello,
I would like to ask owners of the game whether there is any strong violence or gore in the game art. For example some Fireteam Zero player cards were too gory for me.

Is there something like that?

Thank you.

It's Doom. Lots of gore.

Is there something much stronger than this and is art like this common in the game?

The violence/gore didn't even register for me, but if you have to ask this question, Doom is probably not the game for you.

I don't think there's anything stronger than the Chainsaw cards. The weapons cards all depict the weapons being used in the game and that is the gory one.

The rest of the cards are pictures of the demons/soldiers and text information

Thanks, that is what I wanted to know?
Are there some prominent depictions of glory kills?

No. Glory kills are never shown in the artwork. There are cards you gain for performing a glory kill, but those are all "extra ammo" and "extra speed" and stuff. Not gory at all.

I agree I'm pretty positive the chainsaw cards are as bad as it gets, so you can use those images to decide.

Thanks, that was very informative and makes me pretty comfortable with purchasing the game.
