VERY well done! Simple and effective and not just another one of the "basic Enslaved packages"!

Anyways, shouldn't there be some ninja theory logo? and I'd change the color of the text on the back into a darker tone. I'd also move the characters on the front a bit down to have the same white space between the girl and x-box-head as you have at the "PAL"-logo.

Good but I don't understand why you would use a black background for the legal text when you could have just used with with black text considering the rest of the back uses white.

:: I was not sure I had the right to change these colorÂ…
Anyway, is it possible to modify this and re-upload ?

#2, one word: template ;) a lot of packages are using this for real to label the legal stuff. After all that's very important informations, like warnings, copyrights.

#3, you can delete the bix within the first 60 minutes and upload it new, or you uplaod a new version (can be found on the bottom of this site)

#4, All klaatu has to do is change the black background from black to white, change the text to black, change the dolby, family settings, and microsoft logo, to black.

It clashes.

I really like the cover otherwise.

#6, it doesn't clash that much. As I said that rather normal to "highlight" the legal stuff that way. Yeah, the package is very simple and it is a break of the white design, but not unusual.

Besides: If the black block is removed the back will lose some base, because the images are a block on their own and having a single one flying up there is not good. So if the black part turns into white, the bar with screenshots should be moved down and the montage of the characters should get the same effect on the top as it got on the bottom (basicly the top of the back will be white after this). At least it would look more balanced that way.

Issat even understandable what I am trying to explain here? XD

thanx for your comment All.

I agree with Wasa-bi (in fact i've try it) if all the black block is white, there is too much text on white and you can have a confusion between text of the game and legal text. Anyway, i added the Ninja theory logo (important I agree) and I moved a little bit the character down as suggested.

By the way, sorry for my bad english, i have sometime difficulty to expres myself

IMO your english it quite fine - but who am I to judge this? ;)

I have to admit I am... about to add the first box to my favs XD It's real good and very official looking and as mentioned something different between all the other packages.

It's awesome! I love the color you are using, although the Ninja Theory logo in the back looks weird

Very nice and original!
My only two suggestions would be; a) up the contrast a bit on the front, b) center the description text on the back.
= FAV

Wow this is so fresh and clean. I don't think the brown presentation match though, it worked good with the Mass Effect 2 box, but on this one there are totally different colors, and the brown don't look very good. A light gray smoke thing (or what it is) would probably look better.

Also, I agree, the text on the back should be center-aligned, that will make it look even better.

Other than that, this is great, I just love all of the colors.

17 favs? Whats wrong with you people? Are you not paying attention this because it isn't some big name artist? This is almost Rank 9 material here. This so clean and original, im impressed, i'll give you an author fav because i trust you'll make more like this.

This is gorgeous, especially the front. The use of whitespace, vibrant colors, and backdrop in the shape of a tree is fantastic. I can't find any flaws in this design, the back is top quality as well.
