Back makes up for the empty front.

The front seems very simple, but i can tell that's what you were going for, and the back looks like a comic book, which is totally awesome. :D

Front may seem empty, but really, I couldn't do anything with it. I wanted to make it like a comic strip, but it didn't seem to work, and I like it like this. There wasn't exactly much material either, so this was one of the few images that I don't think has been used yet. I had tons of fun making the back.

Credit to:
ADFD for supplying his great template, which I used parts of to create my own.
Testament - The Formation of Damnation for being a kick-ass album to listen to when making this.

The front looks just as bad as the official.

The back is awesome, but the front sucks--you obviously visited Planet Renders and got those two exact images. I downloaded both of them last night for a sig.

But the back is fantastic.

The back is indeed awesome! The front is extremely minimalistic but that doesn't mean it looks bad!

Also the little triangle on the spine should be green and not red but that is nitpicking to the max!!!

#9, I know that it should be green, but I wanted it to fit with the game and the box's general colour scheme. Having a big dark green triangle on the spine would be pretty attention grabbing, and possibly spoil the box.

I just got hit in the face by a really cool idea for the front. I'll try and work on it sometime but I don't know how it'll play out. Have patience.

#7, What might look good for the front would be some faded in blood splats, or maybe even some other characters, just to fill the empty space up, because the front looks a bit too much like the official. even though they're different renders, they still look eerily the same.

The back however is incredible, great job with the back!

I'd really like to see an updated front. The box looks real nice, it just needs a bit more polish.

A good old reflection might look nice for the presentation as well.

The front seems a little empty. Its not a big deal, but its something to maybe work on when you start your next project. Nice job (fav+)

#7, What more can I say, I basically said the front of the official and this are equally bad. The back's good try updating with a more comic feel to the front.

Yeah, when I really look at it, the front is pretty lame =/

Love the back, the front is lacking, maybe like horizontal strips with a render over-lapping, but still, amazing work!

Better than the official UK box. Congrats on rank 9 too.

Why is everyone hating on the front?
I dig the minimalism of the front, especially because of the interesting placement of.. Jack? I think? Haha.
The back is good too, but my eyes get lost in the design. It needs a better visual hierarchy (make one thing [render, tagline, etc) the strong focal point and lessen the impact of less important items.
I still love the comic book feel of the back, though.

Great job Greg! :D

"Most exciting Wii game in ages" - WTF? its only been out for 3 years.

Anyway, the Back looks awesome, you can say minimalism and simplicity all you want about the front but its lame. :P

Simplicity doesn't even make sense with violent blood gushing games. O_o

#20, that was an actual quote from Games Master, and to be fair, the last "exciting" Wii game was probably Brawl. Sure, we had Warioland and Animal Crossing since then, but they're not exactly AAA.

#21, No More Heroes? *puppy dog eyes*
Actually that may have come before Brawl, huh, im bad with dates. -.-

Looking forward to that update you were speaking of though, if you have time for it.

Awesome rack on her, though. (gotta love the announcers)

Y'know, I was close to doing a MadWorld box, and that's almost exactly how I was thinking of doing the back. o_O
Anyway, like others have said, the back is ace. I dig the minimalism on the front, but yeah it use some spicing up. Maybe add a blood trail behind Jack or something (I'm not sure how that would look though, you'd have to experiment).
The box is great overall, and I deem it worthy of a fav. You should still update it like you said, though.

I give points for the actual presentation of the box (fonts are chosen well, the back is layed out pretty well) but I honestly don't like the back. Or the front much. What I don't like about the back the most, is probably the color of the text boxes. Yellow doesn't seem to suit this game. I think a red box with white text would probably look a lot better. Also square and rectangle boxes are great for getting across the feel of a comic strip, but shapes with slanted lines are great for style. Which, for me, this box needs a little more of.
The front is good, but a few simple blood drops and splatters would go a long way to helping it out. Plus his knee is cut off.

#24, well, I chose the creamy colour for the text boxes because that's the colour for traditional comic book text boxes (I worship comics, by the way), and the game does feature the occassional yellow text (see the screenshot with the man darts, the "spllaaaattt" thing). thanks for your criticism.

This isn't what i would've expected from you.
The front is not just minimalist, it's plain,imho. and you're the one always rubbing my feathers about that, and it helped. so.yeah.

Also, the back is really nice, and it has a great and original idea, but as qwerty said- it really does miss a main focal point,mainly because of it being black and white.
I don't know how you could improve it,but just give it a try. maybe some glow/stroke/drop shadow on the render?

However, my only big criticism is the box' presentation itself.
I don't know why, but the red really hurts my eyes, and i think even a gradient would suit the box better at this point.
I'd prefer it if you'd change that, however, it is still your box.

Nice job, but i won't fave it untill i see the update.

I understand what you said about the red background. I'm working on that. I'm also working on an update to the front as we speak. Look forward to it.

thanks for the hall guys, but you didn't HAVE to, you know...

I'm sorry but the front just isn't right. It's not minamilistic, it's just plain. A render on a white background. However the back is...not out of this world. The red is too bright imo and on the comic book notes, I don't really like the yellow background. This box should be black and white with more of a grungy red and less of a fluorescent one. It shows effort and originality but imho does not deliver.

#32, I'm still working on it. It's turned out to be tougher than I thought, and I don't get much time to work on it because I'm always doing something else. Yeah, let's just say, Jesse somehow stole my idea. >__<

#34, So...are you still working on it? I think this box deserves a better front.

I disslike the back not becouse of it's plain, but becouse I disslike the pic, but the back alone makes it fav-worth.

This is an amazing box man,
People might not like the front but i love it the back completes it as the front is shall we say minimalistic and with the back being soo full it really balances it's self out.

+fav even though you don't need it i shall want to see more from you :)
