    Who replaced the (awesome) original box-art with the crappy American one?

    Number one reason I avoided this game when it first came out - horrific box art.  Who the hell made that decision, especially when the original is so perfect.  Ugh.

    So I guess someone will have to reach 6000 points and change the default image then, eh?

    Not hardly there myself. Not sure it'll be any time soon.

    Could just ask the mods of course, but that would be the obvious thing to do...

    I just changed it. I hope that's the one you wanted. It's better than the old one at least.

    I would rather the special edition European version. That was the best art work design for this game. Not only did they ruin the the artwork for North America they also cut all the great extras in the game. Whoever made that decision should be, well you know.

    I don't know which of you barbarians put the atrocious American box art as the default image AGAIN, but I fixed it. Must remain vigilant against bad taste.

    Could one of the mods change the box art back to the proper version, please? It got changed to the terrible one again just before the site change and I can't find the Set Thumbnail button on the new site.
