Dead Island Riptide’s boxart is bloody rubbish

GamesAsylum aren't too fond of Dead Island Riptide's boxart. (Dead Island Riptide, PS3, Xbox 360)

Actually I like it. No focus on the heroes or anything like that, just a bloody zombie rising from the water. Pure and simple

Yea same here, it looks pretty cool imo.

It looks like a cover from an old Amiga game or similar. And on the logo the dead guy is *still* hanging from the leaf of the palm tree.

Have you ever tried to hang somebody from a leaf? It's very hard work.

Did you not play Dead Island 1 at launch? The game itself was rubish! Not bad after....several patches though.

Other than the save issues it was fine at launch. On PC anyways.

I do not c what the problem is.

In fact, I htink is cool. Simple and to the point.

I could care less about the boxart in my games

I agree with the article(if you can even call it that). The box art looks like an amateur anime comic crop. I have created better artwork than this and I'm not even artist.

I could care less about the box art as long as the game itself delivers. I don't pay for box art, I pay for the experience...

People are just becoming impossible to please lately with box-arts. Bioshock goes for a realistic look, gets slammed. Dead Island goes for the hand-drawn artsy look, gets slammed. I propose we just make all box arts plain black with the game logo centered.

2005?

Why stop at Box Art? How about that damn UPC Code? Six zeroes and a one? What is this 1999?
