Worst Cover Art Ever: Batman Arkham City GOTY Edition

It’s only fair that review quotes and new features are listed in large font. Even by GOTY standards, however, Batman Arkham City GOTY has ridiculously awful cover art: (Batman: Arkham City GOTY, Culture, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Its ugly but many people who will be buying this edition care more about the dlc/movie and not the box art

Glad I still have the original boxart with my copy for PS3

Yeah, in this case the original box art looks leagues better than the bad-magazine-ad GOTY cover.

I'm still curious as to whether the GOTY content will all be included on-disk, or if we'll just get a bunch of DLC vouchers. If it's the later, there's not much incentive for collectors.

Seasick-Steve themed Space-Invaders game? I'd buy it.

Oh wow. I was going to put this. But yours is way worse. I don't know how it's possible, but I guess it is.

That cover art sure is sleazy and cheap. The game is considered to be the ipad of gaming (not me though, bored me to tears after an hour). Yet, it looks like an advert for the shitty Easter eggs that didnt sell to well.

What? U couldn't be more wrong.

It would be awesome if it wasn't for all the reviewer statements and bonus content and just had the "game of the year" banner.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1223d ago
WE GET IT! The game is awesome...

I got a Steelbook edition of this game, thank god...

There is still the possibility that this will just be a cardboard sleeve... after all, one of the draws to Arkham City's cover art was how simple and basic it was. Why would they throw that away?

So hopefully a cardboard sleeve... hopefully...

Also, in an attempt to remain positive, I REALLY like the slanted Batman logo faded into the background.
Acquiescence  +   1223d ago
That's a vile cover art...
It's an affront to any shelf that it sits on.
Fel08  +   1223d ago
WOW, what a tacky cover. Good thing the game is great.
ReconHope  +   1223d ago
That is pretty cheap marketing i guess they need a way to differentiate it from the standard game. But c'mon seriously..
Yawnier  +   1223d ago
May pick this up this summer once I have cleared through some of my backlog.

Was really impressed with Arkham Asylum so I think I would enjoy this game.
ArronC07  +   1223d ago
I'm seriously not going to lose any sleep over this.
Canvas Of Flesh  +   1223d ago
They're trying too hard. The game was good, but not that good.
OhReginald  +   1223d ago
you guys are unbelievable...seriously...... hate gamers sometimes.
yog-sothot  +   1223d ago
lol, this so so bad it's getting funny !

seems to me that it's just a troll after the infamous Arkham Asylum GOTY edition.

Well, it's still a great game and that's what really matters.

So? The cover can be a stick figure of batman and Ill still only buy it for the gameplay
Brad13186  +   1222d ago
Me thinks Batman was "riding the red tide" if you now what I mean.
CaptainSheep  +   1222d ago
This looks like a magazine cover. -.-
sonicsidewinder  +   1222d ago
It's like with PS3 Platinum cases.

They're hideous and make you go out of your way to find a nicer copy, even if it means buying pre-owned.
LAWSON72  +   1222d ago
I actually like it
ZeroG19  +   1221d ago
The Uncharted 3 GOTY cover is a hell of a lot better than this, not saying this as a uncharted fan but because it could have been greater...
