In today's gaming world even a box art can become a instant article !!!

if the ps3 version and x360 version had 2 different covers, they'll compare that. heck, they'll even compare the graphics of both of them.

this site has really dwindled quality wise from 7 years ago.

Yeah, the news here are getting weak. Do you guys know any other gaming news website? I mean, that updates almost instantly and has quality.

Place holder cover was much better.

are't most place holder covers better
AznGaara  +   460d ago
It really is. I mean logically its easier to read the "Crysis 3" title in the placeholder because the background gives a better contrast.

I love this website (see my links) lots of fan made box art, and they don't always make sense, some are just for fun, for example fan made box art for Gears of War on PS3 ( http://tinyurl.com/bjr7p2o ).

pc covers look so much nicer, followed by ps3, xbox boxes are so gaudy and ugly with that nasty slimer green all over them

also, the pc version is really the only one to buy for me....let's see if crytek pushes my 680 like they claimed they would.

PC box art is irrelevant when most people buy the game digitally but i agree the green in the xbox cover just kills the style the picture is presented at. i hope they get rid of it come next gen ive always hated the green game box

Compared to the placeholder boxart, this boxart is legitimately bad IN MY OPINION.

1. In the official cover the "Crysis 3" tittle doesn't contrast well with the dark grey/black suit. The red in the title just isn't bright enough to stand out from a distance. The place holder cover had the title against the white-ish-green background, thus creating a better contrast. In the placeholder, only the "Y" in Cysis is hindered by a dark background where as the "RYSIS" is lost within the suit.

2. Due to the complexity of the bow, its harder to tell that its actually a bow and arrow from that angle. The placeholder boxart had the protagonist in a side-profile view and bows and arrows are almost always showed in a side-profile view, thus making the bow in the placeholder easier to recognize.

3. In the placeholder boxart, the protagonist isn't smack-dab in the middle. Thus the human eyes follow a diagonal line that start from the Statue of Liberty's head, the Protagonist and then the Tittle or vise versa. In the official boxart since everything is in the middle it all sort of blends togethers.

Just my analysis.

God damn that stupid green on the Xbox case makes it looks weird. Always loved the black to grey fade on the PS3 cases more.
