Wow. Battlefield Space is what they should just call it. Enough with the hero walking cooly towards us weapon in hand EA!
BFBC 2, BF3, ME3 and now DS3.

LordMe1281d ago

Not just EA. Assassins Creed, CoD MW2 (I think is the one), Dark Souls, DmC, and a number of others.

It really is getting very old though.

dark souls box art is awesome....

YOU LEAVE DARK SOULS OUT OF THIS

lol. no but seriously... dark souls for president

N0S3LFESTEEM1280d ago

Do you spend more time staring at the box or playing the game... not picking on you lordme just everyone in general that actually cares about box art especially when you can print out your own if it really came down to it.

Isn't the Dark Souls guy walking TOWARD the enemies? For me that makes a difference

inveni01280d ago

It's just box art. All box art is supposed to do is sell copies. So I don't really care if they completely flub it up. They wouldn't do it the way they do it if such a template wasn't proven to work.

Any of you that can't even REMEMBER what the boxart looks like have lost privilege to complain about generic covers.

That said, I love a cool cover for my shelf and any time they pull this, it is disappointing.

I know! I'm getting so sick of these boxarts, so glad Halo 4 didn't go down this route.

Kran1281d ago

You forgot Dragon Age 2, sort of Bulletstorm, Crysis 2 except the back of him instead, possibly many more too.

Conzul1281d ago

You're right....this box art is pathetic.

Conzul1281d ago

I disagree, but I also admit you just made a funny.

vakarian751281d ago

Dont forget dragon age 2

Wait so Issac Clark is left handed?

Lord_Sloth1281d ago

Chalk it up to an error since in game he holds his guns right handed.

wolokowoh1280d ago

Probably just ambidextrous when it comes to using guns/tools.

this show that Dead space 3 is gonna be just another Generic Shooter

@cemelc

Not really. This trailer looks like the dead space I know and remember:

Also a demo is designed to sell a game and EA know they need to get fans of shooters in and that's who the demo catered towards.

Conzul1281d ago

By that measure Bioshock Infinite will also be a Generic Shooter.

Grow up.

JasonXS121281d ago

Ken Levine said the use of the generic boxart was to attract consumers, that's it.

Knight_Crawler1280d ago

Atleast you can flip the boxart cover on bioshock if you do not like the generic one.

isa_scout1281d ago

every time I see boxart like this the song, "Cool guys don't look at explosons" always pops into my head. Seriously this is the best your art department could come up with? Dead Space is way to great a franchise to have such generic boxart.

Hufandpuf1281d ago

It would've been cool if they had two people in the middle side by side fending off the aliens that crop in or the edges of the box. But nope.

aLucidMind1280d ago

I personally think that one concept box art where it shows Isaac floating out in space, outside of the ship debris and overlooking the ice planet would have been far more fitting.
