    Nice Boxart! I hope the UK and EU releases and near the US one, I hate it when we have to wait for ages for perfectly finished games. Then again I think Naughty Dog are pretty good on their releases if I recall.

    The box art is okay but I would’ve preferred something along the lines of Army of Darkness or even National Lampoon’s Vacation.

    Or maybe a different artist that can add a bit of visual flair like Boris Vallejo, Travis Charest or J. Scott Campbell. Boris is mainly known for his fantasy world stuff but he’d still do a bang up job.

    Overall, I just think the cover needs something that’s more story driven rather than just seeing Drake holding on for dear life. Something that includes all the characters in the game.

    There’s a bunch more characters in this one than the first so featuring them on the cover would really give you the sense that you’re going on a real adventure. Not just playing some twitch game where you’ll spend most of your time grabbing on ledges (although there is a lot of that going on but still…).

    Got another one. Really like the fact that it’s in the snow and has a hot chick in it. Drake is lucky enough to have two hot women in this game and having on the cover should’ve been priority number one.

    Hey, hot women on a cover of a game who’s audience is basically 18 to 35!? It doesn’t get much easier than that.
