Alright I feel the need to quote myself here, as only a hand-full of people have pointed it out on most of your submissions, but please use the WIP section in the forums before you post anything on the main site.

I highly suggest that you take the time to go the "Official newcomers' WIP thread" link to get some critiquing and advice before you post your box on the main site.

So far from what I can tell It looks to me that you've been using MSPaint, or at least something similar on all of your boxes. I'd suggest that you look into using Gimp or Paint.Net. I don't have any personal experience with either, but I hear it's a better solution than using MSPaint, and has some similar features to Photoshop; Plus they're also free.

Onto your box;
You simply cut out the logo from either the Official boxart or wallpaper, as can be seen by the white pixels left within it. Although that's one of the issues with working with MSPaint, but with a little more diligence it isn't impossible to render it completely (I speak from experience).

Your ESRB logo still has some green left around the edges, and also the edge of your "template" is awkwardly cut. I'm not too sure if it's an altered scan or just something cropped off of another box.

I've stated this before in other critiques for people using what looks to be MSPaint, but whenever you're working with it, it's best to keep image re-sizing/image scaling to a minimum. As the image quality is greatly reduced when you do so, I suggest that you also try to only use high resolution images for your boxes. (But having said that, for some titles there are sometimes literally no reasonable quality resources.)
