Watch Dogs Box Art

Yet another classic example of box art that is designed to sell games to those who know next to nothing about the game already, rather than box art that is actually representative of the game itself.
 
I could care less about the cover when I get this on steam. But as Ken Levine said sometimes you have to design your cover to attract the most customers so I'm okay with this.

It should be standard practice: lame dudebro box art on the front to maximize retail shelf exploitation, sweet Criterion-esque artsy cover on the reverse side.
 
I have a feeling that Watch_Dogs is the new Assassins Creed.
I was hyped for that game...then the reviews...the time travel shite...the gameplay...the fighting...the AI...oh god...everything...

We got Watch_Dogs hyped as a game changer...its just looking like 'more of the same' but with a small twist (which is still nice).

I worry how the world will feel; its open world and has a strong tech side but we've not seen the world really reflecting this. Am worried it'll be bland 'modern day' stuff; with nothing really 'new'.


Poor cover. Could have been far more interesting. The gun looks fucking stupid ('oh hey, am just gonna let this hang out guys') which makes the game look less smartly made than I hope it has been. The mobile is a generic blue screen and looks like the 90s representation of technology and the white lines connecting with the world are pretty difficult to make out; and its a poor representation of the interactive world. The logo is just...bland.

I think they should have had something larger scale to show the interactivity of the world and how you can connect with it. Something to fit the Watch_Dogs name; it looks weird on that cover.

Strange.
 
Wow, that box art is elegant in how bad it is. Talk about underwhelming. It'd be pretty easy to overlook this one one store shelf filled with games.
 
After that demo the other day it looks like it conveys what you do in the game pretty well. He even seems to walk with the gun & phone held that way in the game.
 
Whilst I think it could be more colourful, I actually don't think it's too bad except for being the usual "main character trying to look badass" cover.

Pretty much the case with every SHUMP/SHRUMP (sp?). Oh hey! look at those cool anime characters, I wonder what kind of RPG that is. Nope just another cheap ass ship shooting game.
