    I like it, it reminds me of Captain America covers. Although the typical "head down eyes up" thing that you get in almost EVERY game is a bit annoying.

    Being brutally honest, who cares what box art looks like. This game is being developed by Irrational and Ken Levine is at the helm is basically all you would ever need to know. The box could have an enormous dog egg on the front and it wouldn't cause me to bat and eyelid

    While I don't believe my opinion of a game or film changes based on the artwork, I always prefer it when they put that extra effort into the cover image. The artwork makes it that little bit extra special, as in something great lies within. It doesn't change the game but for me, it raises my anticipation. The worst cases are when the best image is at the back. One that comes to mind is the cover of Kane & Lynch 2 (think what you want about the game - I'm just discussing the artwork). On the front is a "meh" image of the duo, all shouty and holding big guns. On the back is a striking image of the two taking cover behind a car. Bullets are bouncing off the metal, Chinese neon and police lights are flaring up the background, and the duo look tired, bloodied and injured. This to me conveys the sense of them being stranded and isolated in a strange land as well as being far too old for this. It's a much more powerful image and would have made a great cover.

    Rather disappointing artwork, to be honest. I understand they need something to draw in the shooter crowd but surely Bioshock is now a reputable franchise? I wish they focused on the city. Perhaps something like a small Booker DeWitt silhouetted against the magnificence of a floating city. Or even a bird's eye view of the city - where it's pretty obvious that it is floating above the world. The city can even be in flames as to represent the turmoil within and contrasts nicely with preconceived notions of a utopia in the sky.
