I like the top one the best and the bottom one looks like a soulcaliber game's box art.

#3 Edited by BulletproofMonk (2718 posts) -

I'm pretty sure that the second one is the US art. The third one's the best. 
 
E:Oh wait, the US one might actually be the first one since it has the ESRB rating on it.

You're totally right. Didn't even notice that.

I personally like the first two.

#9 Posted by Klaimore (945 posts) -

The third one is the best one.

#10 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7613 posts) -

The last one seems to be the version we're getting for both systems in the UK.  No idea why it would have NTSC and the US rating on it though. 
 
My favourite one is the first one, followed closely by the Japanese PS3 cover and then the UK one.

I like the first one the best. Oh wait. That's the US cover? Oh god it's awful! When will publishers learn to stop ruining the amazing Japanese covers with these terrible MS paint imitations?

I'm writing my Senator. I mean, someone is getting a letter over this. I know! I'll start a facebook petition!

#12 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2682 posts) -

I really like the first one and third one.

#13 Posted by mrangryface (774 posts) -

Second one is my favorite- ugliest one is the US cover.

#14 Posted by JackSukeru (5903 posts) -

They all look pretty good, I think I like the top one the best.

The second one is a little plain but is still cool, with a nice colour scheme.

Third one might be a bit too hardcore for me. It seems like it's trying to convey the mood of the game, and does so well, I just like my covers to "pop" a bit more.

The bright blue light in the fourth one kinda goes the other way of being to gaudy, but at least there's no orange in there.

First one is the best, you guys are blind.

#16 Edited by ProfessorEss (7278 posts) -

I don't think any of them are anything to write home about.

#17 Posted by The_Nubster (2045 posts) -

I definitely like the first one. Free of floating heads (depends on your view of what a floating head is, though), explosions and cast get-togethers, but it has a subtle sense of 'danger' to it. And it's also just really pretty. 

#18 Posted by Marz (5642 posts) -

last one

#19 Posted by FritzDude (2253 posts) -

First Cover: Yes
Second cover: Well...
Third cover: No. Looks like he's taking a shit
Fourth cover: Yes 

#20 Posted by Tebbit (4449 posts) -

3 is where it's at. 2 and 4 look very dumb.

Unfortunately the ratings sort of give away what comes from where, but I probably would have guessed those anyway. Maybe not the UK one (2).

First cover: Limited Edition NA boxart 
Second cover: Europe boxart 
Third cover: Japan boxart 
Fourth cover: Standard NA boxart 
 
My favorite is the limited edition North American box art. It evokes how gruesome the game will be, much like Demon's Souls' box art. The Japan one is also cool as it represents one of the new game mechanics as well as how desolate and lonely the world the player will go through is.  The worst is probably Europe's box art because it doesn't mean shit. A simple image of an enemy bearing armor is really just boring.
#23 Posted by Timing (618 posts) -

See what's stupid (among other things) about the last one is he's walking away from the viewer and into the demons, right? Then why the hell would he have his shield in his right hand and his sword in his left? Anyone who's played Demon's Souls would know that doesn't make sense.

As for the first one, it's better, but that's not how reflections work. They just slapped the image from the second box art onto the helmet and called it a day, while an actual reflection on an uneven reflective surface like that one would not stay intact and perfectly vertical like that.

Second one I find a little generic and not very indicative (presumably) of the game. The Black Knight's just handing you the sword? I don't think he will.

Third one's best for me. As has been said, it illustrates the (again, presumed) feel of the game without intrusion of unnecessary elements. Though, it kind of looks like the dude's shoulder is on fire.

/over-thought opinion

I like the first and third one the best.  Four totally looks like a generic video game cover though, so that's probably what we'll get in the US.

The fuck are you talking about? He's sitting by a fire, have you never seen someone sit down?
#29 Posted by TehFlan (1944 posts) -

I like the top one.

I like the first one the most.

#32 Posted by xyzygy (9890 posts) -

First one is NA CE, last one is NA regular. The other two are for other regions.

#33 Posted by ervonymous (1297 posts) -

The JP one looks soothing to me, I like it. None of them are terrible as far as box art goes.

#34 Posted by CaptainCody (1505 posts) -

The first one is looking at the second one because it likes it better.
#35 Posted by Slaker117 (4835 posts) -

None of them are great and none of them are bad, but I prefer the first and last ones.

@pornstorestiffi: Cool, looks like I'll be getting the limited edition then.

I know, I know, it's silly.

Still, does anyone know what the Limited Edition gets you?

Edit: Nevermind, I googled it. Seems like you get the game, an artbook, soundtrack, guidebook and a Behind-the-scenes DVD. Neato!

3rd

#40 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5137 posts) -

The first is the only decent one, but even then it's not that special.
#41 Posted by chrissedoff (2075 posts) -

in north america you are not allowed to have boxart that does not feature a dude with sword or a gun

First one. Third one is okay. Not a fan of the second or fourth.

Minus the physical guide for the North American Limited Edition, though. We'll instead get a "more complete" guide in a downloadable format.

@pornstorestiffi: Looked it up myself, but thanks!

#46 Posted by TooWalrus (13135 posts) -

I like the 4th box- though I've always liked that kind of electric blue.

#47 Posted by Emmzyne (22 posts) -

Limited looks sweet, although in the UK it's cited as a 'Day 1 Edition' - meaning if you don't buy it the day it's released, you won't get your pre-order AT ALL.  
 
I like the 3rd Cover most, explains the Demon/Dark Souls franchise wonderfully.

#48 Edited by GodsMistakeXx (134 posts) -

I like the third one, it's certainly different than many box arts, and it portrays the isolation theme that is prevalent throughout the game. 
 
EDIT: Why do the japanese get all the good box arts. I hate who designs the box art for North American releases. 

#49 Posted by LiquidPrince (15840 posts) -

The first looks the best.

Both 360 covers are superior.
