So, my second attemt at a box art. Pretty pleased with the front, and after trial and error with the back I kinda ended up where I am with that. I can only get better, though!

Like I said before, I'd love to see more color on the back.

Not too bad. A few items to note here.

The desaturated look on the front is somewhat effective, but still looks a bit empty. There is too much going on to say it is minimalist.

The back cover needs some serious work. The desaturated background is a cooler temperature than the front, thus taking away form a uniform appearance to the overall cover. The lack of color in the background doesn't just let the screenshots stand out, they steal the show. It looks unbalanced.

The Gears font doesn't really come off as appealing when it is used in as normal text. I would opt for an alternate font and get rid of the outer stroke on the back's text. As for the "Collection" under the Gears logo on the front, I would match up the texturing so the piece looks more together.

Overall, this is a good start, but needs some work to make it great, as noted.

Thank you for a very constructive reply. I didn't like the back cover myself, but just couldn't put the finger on what was wrong/how to improve it. I am currently doing some fixes on the cover, and will post an updated version later. Cheers again, it really helps. :)

Not bad. Fronts a bit blurry, and the blood splatter looks choppy. Other than that, you've got a really nice box on your hands ;)
