I think we can all agree that bad box art doesn't do a game any favors. Even if it happens to be an awesome game, a shitty looking box can instantly turn people away from it in the stores. That's why I am a little disappointed with this one.
As awesome as Vanquish is, I find the boxart to be, well, rather shitty. Retarded font, silver and teal on blue. Nothing pops like it should. Not to mention a generic looking sci-fi character sliding toward you while shooting.
It's bad and I have a feeling that bland box art combined with an almost complete lack of advertising will cause the game to do poorly here. Which is a shame because it is incredibly fun.
