Worst Box Art

Throughout your years of gaming, which games had the worst box art you've ever seen?

I searched in the forum and didn't find this topic. (but there may be one and I apologize if there is)

My votes:





And the winnar:



I love Armored Core, but, come on. Worst cover ever. Looks like a student's project in a 3D art class, using a default pose.

I find it funnier than bad, but it's still pretty bad.

kind of makes me sad that i'm seeing Fatal Frame, Resident Evil, and Turok 2 on here but i realize it's just the box art, and not the gameplay so maybe you guys really like the games for all i know.

Oh, I like the games. But the art. Ugh. How would you even be able to guess a camera is integral to Fatal Frame? What if you were framing pictures? Or framing ghosts for crimes?

haha, back when fatal frame first came out i went and rented it, and didn't even know it was about ghosts considering how bad the cover was. I will agree with you on that and Resident Evil, but i don't see the problem with Turok 2?

This is why:



Dude's murdering a raptor with a KNIFE. A KNIFE. When that's on the cover, you know the game's going to be badass.

No, I mean like, the first one's cover is so bad ass.

The second one, just plain text. Wasted opportunity. This should have been the cover of Turok 2:

Too bad they couldn't make a good Next gen turok game

I REMEMBER THAT GAME!

I, to this day, think that someone mixed up the box art for another game and threw the space ship on it at the last minute. I mean, seriously. It's a plane shooty game.

Don't believe me?

Wow there's some real gems out there. If you dig back in to the early Atari/Nintendo days there is some real ghastly work out there, but nothing quite like that Druid.

That's just scary.

I chuckled at that bizarre fighter one you posted IDiiviil, that's so.......BAD!!!
