The front's not bad. Good quality material, nice colors and the blur gives a sense of speed and motion. I think it could be toned down though, assuming it was intentional in the first place. And a few of the Wisps could be removed, specifically the ones towards the outer edges of the cases. The large number and fact that most look similar make the cover much more crowded than necessary. Fix these issues and the front is solid.

Back has a few glaring flaws, almost exclusively with the text. The font selection is just a bit too plain and standard for a game like Sonic. You wouldn't necessarily have to use something in the vein of the Sonic logo, but simple edits like the glossy finish can go a long way in dressing up the text and making it more appealing. I'd also suggest, for the background, imagery from the game itself. The vibrancy and lighthearted feel is lost on the somewhat dreary, realistic scenery behind Sonic.

Really nice front...I like the lighting effects especially. The back, however, could use some work; the text especially is a little hard on the eyes. One of the hardest parts about making any boxart is the font choice...try www.dafont.com and search everything (they have thousands, so find a category that will suit your box,) and keep looking until you find a fit! Your concept is great...just fix the execution up a little, and you'll have a winner for sure.

Yeah, I pretty much agree. The front is really, really good but the back could use work.

#8, It's not offensively bad, but the text is kind of... eh. It could stand to maybe be in a different font and have a lighter shade to it.

The front is fantastic as others have said, the lighting is great. You have a good layout for the back, but the font choice for the text kills it.
