I think that the second darker one looks better, but the back seems a bit empty to me. Maybe put an origami figure behind the text or something? Also, I love how you did the rain drop effect on the front. It really matches the game!
Now back to my FF XIII-2 box.

Hey I'm just plain old failing on that screen idea. No way I place them looks right. Maybe you could use that on a future project of yours Spiner...
Okey... I don't really know how I could help you, but try to paint some kind of circle, and it might be easier to place them out. (check my picture)
You don't have to do it if you don't want, though :P
