GamesAsylum aren't too fond of Dead Island Riptide's boxart.
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.
Ha, this is the new complaint going into 2013! The Box Art sux!
And dude, about goddamn time.
Meanwhile at steam ...boxarts?
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.
wait wait, hold the phone....people still buy games in boxes? what is this? 2005?
Not too bad has nothing on the Steelbook case though :P
Looks good. Haha. What a terrible story.
Why stop at Box Art? How about that damn UPC Code? Six zeroes and a one? What is this 1999?
