Metal Gear Hazard box art cover

My most ambitious box yet! This is exactly the kind of box that I've wanted to make 3-4 years ago. There are exponentially more resources available now than there were back then and I must say this box wouldn't be possible until now. I hope you guys like this video game crossover that I've thought about for a very very long time, Metal Gear Hazard.

The template is private modified PS3 template. Thanks to SoundWave and ShadySaiyan for the original template resources.
**Update on the UN-Uploaded Series:
Unfortunately I do not have access to all of my old boxes that I thought I did. I was very upset about this and am sad to say that there is only ONE box that I have access to. However be assured that it will be as grand as I hoped it would be. That being said, that box will mark the True end of my boxart career on VGBA. That box will be uploaded next week.

Finally I would like all of you to know that I would love to collaborate while I'm still on vacation(about two more weeks).
Thanks again and enjoy!

I'm glad that you guys like my box but your comments would mean more than a fav to me. :)

Not much to say, really. The lighting on the box is fantastic, and the blending of each character is great.

I gotta agree with Ergo, as this box is outstanding. It blends together perfectly, and is really well done.

Can't add more then to what already has been said.
I really love the lightling, and I like the blending and the blue with red and white colour scheme.

Got a small point considering composition though. The part around Leon's head seems really busy and doesn't let my eye float the comfortable way, if you get my drift.

Not bad. But I see you did use my wallpaper (link) on the front and did a poor job of blending it. I wish you really would have asked or given credit first before using it.

I had no idea that was your wallpaper. I found it on Google image search. I will update the description. I'm not going to make excuses, its true I did not do a good job blending on the front. I just used erase drop shadow brushes on 25% opacity. Thanks!

Nice but - there's too much emphasis on Metal Gear here, even though the fictional game here is meant to be a crossover, the huge snake on the front strikes out like a sore thumb. You could have been more ambitious with the logo as well, so many designs come in mind even by thinking of a potential MGS/RE crossover. Personally I don't like the mixture of CGI from two different franchises; it looks tacky but I admire the concept nonetheless.

Too much emphasis on Metal Gear despite the title I made up was "METAL GEAR Hazard"? I thought it would appear apropos that Snake should be the prominent character.
Now the logo, I decided to use the same font as MGS2, MGS3, MGS: Peacewalker, etc. I took queue from the original RE with the solid red. The blended classic look, that I believe I achieved, fit very well with the design in my opinion. MGS/RE never had very ambitious logos unless what you had in mind a la MGS: Rising or going completely original. I suppose if I went with something other than 'Metal Gear Hazard' I might of had something to work with.
I agree that the clashing cgi is odd but I mean how else would you do a mash up? I was considering doing silhouettes but that didn't seem true to either of the games styles. Obviously that idea remained on the back.
MGS and RE always had great resources for that epic movie poster look. Instead of making two separate MGS/RE boxes I thought this crossover was the perfect opportunity to make this type of box. Kill two birds with one stone.
I can see all the points that people have made and a ton more that I,myself, am not completely happy about but in the end this box I posted is the one I set out to make.
Thanks!
and
Thank you to everyone! I appreciate all your critiques.

@Sentry "I can see all the points that people have made and a ton more that I,myself, am not completely happy about but in the end this box I posted is the one I set out to make."

To phrase this better:

I see all your critiques and there are plenty more critiques on this I could make myself and despite that this is still the box I set out to make.

Oh, if there are improvements you would like to see I will gladly do that.
