    Well, I couldn't find another topic like this, so I thought I'd start my own. Some great games have been ruined by terrible box art. If you find some, post it here!

    Guardian Heroes


    I love this game, but come on! I don't need to see one of my favorite Saturn games looking like some He-Man knock-off. Besides, there's no dragons in Guardian Heroes. I'll post some more later on.

        The TurboGrafx was quite infamous with their American box art for their games.

        Bomberman '93

        I think this looks more accurate.

          Don't get me started with this one, but it doesn't matter anyway because this game was pure crap and an insult to the Bomberman series.

          Bomberman Act: Zero

          Let's just be glad they went back to the old Bomberman design after this stinker.

            ^ Maybe you didn't know, but have you seen the box art for the first Bomberman game?



            I rest my case.

              I have actually, I saw the cartridge for this back when Funco Land was still in business.

                Yeah, I like the Bomberman '93 one, one of my favorites actually. I was thinking about the original NES one, but I love it even if the design's way off, because it's excellent art.

                Also just to let you know I refuse to acknowledge Act Zero's existence, so from here on out I'll just ignore anything said about it.

                  I'm sure by now that everyone has seen the original Mega Man box art. :roll:


                  But has anyone seen the European box art for Mega Man 2?

                  I never knew that Mega Man wanted to cosplay the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. :shock:

                      The arm also looks like an uncicumcised penis.

                        Bubble Bobble Revolution, but that was a butchered version of a classic anyway.

                        Bub and Bob, what have they done to you? Thanks a lot, Codemasters.

                          I've never seen the PAL Mega Man 2 art... but man, that looks like it'd give Mega Man a run for it's money. Good thing the US artwork doesn't suck so bad.

                          Yeah, Puzzle Bobble/Bust-A-Move is known for having awful artwork.

                            My friend has this game, and to this day, he still tells me how horrible the box art is. :lol:
                            I however, have never actually played this game, so I don't know what it's like.

                                I loved this game, I used to rent it all the time. I didn't think the box art was that bad.

                                  That's not all, here's the Europeon Mega Man box art.

                                  It's not as bad as the American box art, but still, ugh.

                                    I can't really think of any other box art that's bad that's already been said. I'm sure there's a few early Genesis covers. I already said Tommy Lasorda Baseball, though.

                                        Yep.

                                        I've seen the PAL Mega Man cover before. At least it's more accurate. It's almost like Mega Man fanart.

                                          Just confusing if you played the game first, because the box artist messed it up, besides screwing up the characters the box is alrightAll the 4 heroes of the game are misrepresented on the box art: the artist drew Max with his head shaven, Blaze wearing completely different clothing, Axel with brown hair instead of his default blonde hair and Skate has most of his outfit colored differently.
