Alive Game Zone - Lately today, the box art image has rolled out for Insomniac Games' upcoming open-world shooter, which is currently being developed and will be released as an exclusive title for Microsoft's Xbox One, Sunset Overdrive.
My eyes!!!!11!1111!! Heck my ears hurt too.
Lol this look like crap
Unfortunately, a lot of people do judge a game by its cover in stores, and this looks terrible. It doesn't explain at all what the game is about, whereas the generic, "standing dude with a gun" on the cover does, and gets the message across way better.
i think this game may be a monumental flop like fuse was
You mean to say you hope...
the game is meant to be crazy, over-the-top, and uniquely built. in my opinion, the box art fits that description perfectly.
Is this real? It's probably the ugliest cover art ever made. It looks fake, especially if you look at the boxes for other Insomniac games (Resistance 3, for example).
That's the point of this game, it is meant to be really over the top.
Anything that isn't "Big dude with a gun" on the front is welcome at this point. Yeah, it's jarring, but at least it's not the cover to Bioshock Infinite (which they apologized for with so many alternate covers) or the butt-tastic Remember Me cover. At least they're doing *something.* That said, meh. Still not caring about this. I love the style, but it's yet another TPS. From the makers of Fuzzzzzzze. Not the makers of Ratchet and Clank, those birds have flown. They've been Rare'd.
it looks fake. i have a hard time believing it's real even if everyone telling me it's real. Why do we have a box art but no in-game footage ?
This game looks wack IMO.
But if it was coming exclusively to PS it would be another trend setter right?
Nope still wouldn't care if it was exclusive to Playstation. I never thought Insomniac was that great in the first place. Resistance wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing either. After Resistance they just went downhill IMO.
@Kratos But you haven't seen gameplay for it yet...
Exactly. I'm just saying from the looks of the trailer it looks wack.
Hideous. Also, a box art but no in-game footage yet?
Insomniac are gonna close down or be bought out soon. New games are terrible looking, and feel so generic. Sad I enjoyed the Resistance and R&C series alot. These guys ran to Microsofts $$$ and are proving why Sony owns RC/RS rights Insomniac is mediocre at best without Sony
They were not much better with Sony last gen, IMO. I enjoyed R&C ToD, Quest for Booty was mediocre and Resistance 2 was the most generic and boring FPS I ever played. I couldn't remember anything of the story two weeks after finishing it.
I actually enjoyed RS2 64 player online and the crazy weapons. It was fun with my friends. But I will agree R&C after Crack in Time went way down.
Sony may own the rights to R&C and Resistance but it was all Insomniacs hard work. I said before and still feel that Insomniac is mismanaged. Their games show they have talent but no direction or consistency. At one point they were considered a top tier studio, but not anymore. We'll see what this new game brings but so far I dont like the way it looks.
I hope Insomniac can get back to its glory. I agree maybe they need new management, even if that means being bought as a 1st party. Im sure they are hurting for revenue.
I like it gives it something different instead of the jon everyman covers we get all the time
looks great, love the artstyle
Looks fine to me. Not really sure what all the hate is about.
Lol wtf. So its that type of game. Interesting
I may get this game. It is looking like a fun game to play with some friends.
Can you link to some gameplay? Because all I saw was a CG trailer.
Never saw any gameplay just the CGI trailer at E3 and I never stated that I did. From what I have read and the games I like to play multi player...this games has sparked some interest in me.
i actually love the game box art. just not the game.
but we haven't even see gameplay footage yet..
The game is an X1 exclusive so he must hate it because it not coming to a Sony system.
no offense to the guys down at insomniac but their latest efforts havent exactly been stellar. free running-shooter game coming from them is a little less than appetizing.
I like it! its different.
Looks crazy and random. I Luv it.
What were they smoking!?
This cover looks awful. I have mixed feelings about this game. It has potential to be a fun game but I have never been a fan of Insomniac's games and I didn't like the art style of the trailer.
I actually like the cover, it's unique, whimsical and arty... much better that those kitschy cheesy covers aimed at wanna be macho teenagers. :-D
Can't wait to play this game. I loved the trailer and it looks like it could be really interesting. Before you disagree with my PERSONAL OPINION know that both the PS4 and XONE have been pre-ordered since E3. Haters Gonna Hate, The M$ DRM and UsedGames crap was never an issue for me, PERSONALLY.
