    A lot of Genesis titles had inaccurate-looking scenery. Take the Phantasy Star II cover, for example.



    The hell? That's not Rolf. He looks like an old man, has a gun, and an entirely different outfit. And Nei? Nei's outfit is different, and she has horns instead of cat-like ears.

    But go figure, this is one of my favorite covers of all time.

      The Legend of the Mystical Ninja

      They really screwed Goemon/Kid Ying over with this one, maybe this is why we didn't get anymore Goemon games. (Except for 2 more Nintendo 64 games.)

        Heh, I was thinking about Legend of the Mystical Ninja as well. But decided to go for Pocky & Rocky instead. Go figure.

        Can you even ride a tiger in the game? Is it one of his powers you're supposed to train for?

          Yeah, that's a big coincidence. Anyways I'm not sure about the tiger, but I'm guessing probably not.

              The Master System games had some of the worst box art I have ever seen!

                Oh yeah, those suckd. Let's see another one.



                To think, they changed Hokuto No Ken into this. One of the earliest examples of regionally altering a game.

                  Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow Konami's Best Re-release

                  I don't have a problem with the artwork, it's really good actually, but it just looks really lazy to put a picture of a box on a box. (Sorry, this is the best picture I could find for it.)

                    Yeah... A guy playing the banjo on the box of a shoot-em-up makes perfect sense.

                              The NES version of Strider

                              This was a watered down version of classic, and I don't think the box helped much either. :roll:

                                  By far worse then the DS games cover, adn a worse version of the game over all.

                                  and there was this...
