GamesRadar - As 2011 finally, inexorably grinds to a close, it's time to revive one of our favorite annual GamesRadar traditions – specifically the one that involves rounding up as many of the year's most insultingly hideous or wrong-headed game boxes as we can find and making fun of them.
As time rolls on and the videogame industry gradually matures, it might seem as though bad box art is becoming a thing of the past. Finding choice candidates this year was particularly difficult, partly because game companies seem to be wising up, but mainly because shovelware publishers haven't been jumping onto the Wii/DS bandwagon quite so eagerly over the last 12 months. Even with 2011's surprising dearth of shelf-clogging ugliness, though, we still managed to find a whopping 35 boxes to work with. Get ready for the awful.
