One of my favorite games of all time!

The template was made by me, with Pan's DVD template as a base.
If I get to rank 7, I will upload this (If Pan is okay with it) along with some other templates I've done.

I feel like it's too dark... if the colors were just a bit brighter, it would be beautiful, but the front is far too dark for my tastes. Also, the back text is a bit off. It's always a pet peeve of mine to see grammatically incorrect descriptive text, and that's what you have, and for me it just takes away from the experience. If it was just a bit brighter, though, I would probably give you a fave.

I know the front is dark, that'w what I was going for. But when you mention it, I might have taken it too far.

I'm sorry, but I can't find any problems in the back text. Except the fact that the font made the commas look like full stops.

I'd have to agree with Koopa, it seems a little too dark. The front is lovely and I especially like the back. The font and screen borders give it a nice Metroid feel.

I think it looks great, but I have to agree with the others: Its definitely way too dark. There's a really nice boxart there screaming for the spotlight. Must be an eclipse or something?

The colors of this boxart remind me of Metroid Prime 2 and Metroid Prime Hunter's reflective print. I kind of like that concept, but the typography in the back is too dark

There we go, updated! Hopefully a bit brighter.

However, bear with me. This was just a quick edit, not entirely done on the original picture. I have quite much to do tonight, so it will have to do. The font might be changed later on.

I like it. Wish you made a printable version. I own it and would replace the case in a heartbeat.

I could easily make a printable version. I can tell you when it's done, if you want?

Okay. Thanks. That would be great.
LOL just remember the GCN to GBA link for Fusion, though...
'cuz I own all the stuff for that...

Good to see that you improved it, it looks a lot better. It's still a bit too dark, particularly around the Metroids and at the bottom near the ESRB logo, but it does look a lot better. I'm not sure I like the back text anymore... it makes the box seem a bit empty. I'm not sure that you should really... add more text, though. I'm not sure, I don't know what to suggest, it just seems like something is missing. If I seem a bit harsh, it's only because this is one of my favorite games of all time, and it really has a specific feel about it that I'm not sure you've captured.

I finally got around to editing my Metroid Prime box. I brightened up the front a lot, and fixed some minor errors.
The back however, I can't do something about. I accidentally saved it as one picture, without all layers. So I can't edit the text, without having to start the whole thing over. And that is something I don't feel like doing.

And I'm sorry, but there will be no printable version. Due to some dimension errors, the whole box in 2D looks like crap.

Ah, well, at least you tried. I still like the box.
