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.
