- Looks great
- Blue & Orange
- MC does look a bit disjointed there (like he's got Rayman floating limbs)

Whoever drew that should get a pat on the back, seriously. So much good detail.

Imagine the poor chap who got the Pegi rating as their piece.

I expected a lot worse. That looks awesome. Especially awesome, considering Halo has been cursed with awful covers its entire life.

Yawn, two posts hating on Halo. Too obvious, bro, get a little more subtle!
Subtle?

I've been a part of Halo-GAF community since Halo 3 and a fan since day one. Brush up on your Halo-GAF lore.

I don't like Halo 3's box art but that has nothing to do with the quality of the game, I adore it.

This boxart is just fine and I think it gets you excited that MC has crashed landed on a weird and mysterious planet. But I think the old design adage "less is more" applies here and I would have liked less commotion going on in the composition. This has nothing to do with the quality of the game itself.

No need to get all butthurt.

The art looks fantastic; always has. I've just never been drawn in by the lore... Perhaps they'll strike a more interesting chord this time around. The GI article talked a bit about what they were trying to do, the characters, etc. and it sounds promising. I just know me and a buddy co-op'ed Halo 3 and I never wanted to play it again after that.
