The lights are on
Warner Bros. today announced the Game of the Year edition for Batman Arkham City. Too bad the game's box art is an awful mess.
I'm going to let the picture below do most of the talking, but there's a few things worth pointing out. At a glance you'd think the name of this game is "10 out of 10," but that's our review score. Also, the title is actually one of the smallest things on the cover (it's on the right-hand side).
Even better, it uses a review quote from GamePro, but that magazine no longer exists!
That looks like an advertisement page you would see in Game Informer, EGM or something. I wonder what the back looks like, WB probably sold that space to Chrysler or something lol.
gamepro? even some pc gaming crew, took the bait from the magazine closing.
That should be the back of the case.
Is this like, a horrible photoshop or something?
i might buy "10 out of 10" game of the year edition, it has batman in it.
Yeah that's a tad bit much there. The title should be the biggest thing on that box, and in the spot where "10 out of 10" is. I can already see someone picking this up who doesn't know games so well and they'll be like "what's this 10 out of 10 game with the white suit batman on the cover?" lmao
Batman's wiping his face in shock of all the excessive text on his box art.
Hahaha! You guys crack me up!
Hey bad box art means it'll probably be changed after the first batch ships; meaning instant collectible box art
Whoa, since when are words on a game's awesomeness considered art? (Not that you guys don't do a great job of making them seem to be a fine art... ;-) Way to go Warner Bros. you've just destroyed the Bat...until you release that better attempt at boxart we all know that will be made... :p
MY EYES! MY EYESSSSSSSSSS! (Dies)
Yeaaaaa.......the 10 out of 10 threw me off. The words should've been smaller and placed into one column imo. The batman picture is fine.
as a graphic designer this is laughable and painful at the same time.
This has to a prank!!!!!! This must be the worst GOTY cover I have ever seen!!!!!
Damn that is one hot mess
It's not that bad
It's too cluttered. They need to reduce the size of the praise if not get rid of some of it entirely. The box art needs to advertise the game, not the reviews.
Is he hitting himself?
