It's been done to death, but having seen this, I was inspired to create one here-

Oh christ, I saw that Chegwin game on sale in Asda this evening. For the bargain price of £9.

Ok. Looking thru The Bible (Google) I've found some lousy box art. Oooooh boy, and i mean LOUSY.

Image
Image

When they hired the artist for these boxes, the guy must've been:

A) Blind
B) In a coma
C) A really bad joker
D) All of the above

Image
I loathe this box with all my heart. I LOVED Trouble Shooters. It was a great sidescrolling shooter. But this so called "art" desecrates the beauty of the game. Filthy americans!

Image

This was the japanese box art. Please compare.

Image

Your brain melted. PEriod.

Image

I've lost my faith in humanity :'(

Image

This one's so bad it's hilarious. NINJA GOOOOOOLF!

All of the pics were taken from http://pc.ign.com/articles/776/776398p1.html and some from The Bible (Google)

Sure, they may not be as good as the other MGS boxes, but they do not deserve to be in the thread.

Budget games are easy targets for this type of crap.

And despite the fact that it's not budget, I can't ignore one of the worst games I own

Just read this thread. It's all fairly just, IMHO;

Terrible box art for terrible games.

They're all obviously the games no-one bought.

Oh! I didn't see Jam Sessions!

Didn't like the first 2 Mega Mans though. As for Karnaaj Rally; I've never played it.

Doesn't make them terrible. In fact, it doesn't stop them being two of the best games on the NES, either. :P
