    Looks like the other one was just a poster. http://vgboxart.com/forums/showthrea...ayne-3-Box-Art!

    This was just released today by Rockstar. But yeah, I agree. The character placement is horrible.

    I really don't like the character placement either, but I already hated the image of Max when I first saw it :/

    This looks by far a much better choice for the front of the box imo.

    I pre-ordered the Special Edition which imo. has a far better front as the standard edition.

    And for those who wants to keep the film noir feel from the first games

    I'm wondering why this cover is deliberately ignoring the idea of symmetry.

    I was thinking that too. All that empty space...

    I don't understand all of the hate, but I suppose it could have been better.

    I don't know man, that looks even worse in my opinion. I think the lighting and lack of competent focus and flow in these boxes is what kills it for me.

    Need I remind you of GTA. The same thing each game. GTA3 PAL was awesome. But that's about it

    All they need to do is move the characters to the center. If I posted this box on the website, I would get criticized for the characters being off center.

    I believe they would be more bothered with teh fact that it is, you know, the officiall cover and that you didn't make it yourself
    But I believe you're right, although the designers here usually are a bit too picky

    What's wrong with that? I love the matching GTA covers.

    Well, than I'd say; What's really holding you back, to make your own boxart for the game? I challenge you

    looking at it afterwards, you're kinda right. this however, would go much better for a front imo.

    Agreed Bastart, I don't really see what they wanted to do with this box
    But the Playstation magazine cover is badass !
