NowGamer looks at the most awful game covers of 2011. Some of these are just baffling.
Surgery Simulator 2011 is a 10/10 game... much better than 2010.
I dont agree with saints row 3 cover being bad , it was just a bold move by THQ. The cover looks fine but not appealing or doesnt give any hint about the game
It's only bad to those who don't know a thing about Saint's Row.
Not defending the author, but I get his point about the Saint's Row 3 box art showing you nothing about the game. But then again, loads of games do it, so not sure why he's singled that game out to be honest :/
I like the SR3 and Conduit 2 box arts
He didn't mention the MW3 cover!? I thought that was so boring and bland. At least the covers for the other CoD games were at least somewhat more colorful... this one is simply black and white with a lime green font.
I actually think the author has misunderstood the Saints Row: the Third front cover. I believe they have chosen it because they are the huge companies you named but in their own game. The game is loud and in your face hence why the logo is so big.
I´ve got Saints Row Ed. with that stupid Prof. Genki Face right over the SR emblem. Would much rather have the 1 shown here. I also thought MW3 will be under the Top 3.
The Saint's Row The Third box art, the SR logo on the box as if it were a major brand name, is actually fairly clever within the context of the game.
