CODMWF2 Box Art is OMGLAME

Infinity Ward has been touting the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for some time now, saying they want it be the biggest game launch in the history of time. If that’s the case, then is this really your best effort at box art, the closest thing a game has to a movie poster?

While it is nice to officially see “Call of Duty” in the title (rumors are it was being dropped completely), I really don’t enjoy the ambigui-soldier and fireworks show. Why ambigui-soldier? Well, I can’t tell if he’s a goodie or a baddie for one. He’s got a US military helmet on, but he’s wearing a scarf, he’s holding an M-16, but it looks like it went on a diet and lost ten pounds. I’m confused.

To be fair, the last box art wasn’t exactly a Rembrant either, but for a game that’s supposed to be the second coming of Christ, I think they need to go back to the drawing board one more time.

    All box art should be hand-drawn and crappy like the original Mega Man box art. To this day, nothing beats that.

    Just FYI, many US Soldiers wear a mouth covering while in country, be it an Under Armour mask or something less rainbow six, to keep sand out of their mouth/face and protect from the sun.

  6. [...] Well now with the release of this truly epic box art, I’ve finally been pushed over the edge. I’m getting it. If the team put this much creative effort into the box, I can only imagine how much they put into the game. This is as opposed to say, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, who thinks they can just make an awesome game while settling for lame box art. [...]
