What a Crap cover.

Unread post by Jackshit » Fri Sep 24, 2004 1:11 pm

I picked up Sabre Squadron today in Game in Dublin. Looked at the pityful excuse for a cover (terrible photo of four guys in a jeep looking like a crap holiday snapshot from some war reinactor) and put it back on the shelf.

The cover of Mafia was stark, simple and yet stunning, the cover for FFF with the soldier aiming his rifle right at you was great (had that as my windows backround for about a year) and even the H&D 1 cover was pretty intriguing in a sort of "Boys Own" way. But this Sabre Squadrron cover was terrible, as was the cover of the boxed set of H&D2/SS. cant remember what that was called, but it's cover was kak too.

I mean the cover of H&D2 was bad enough but come on Illusion/Gathering, what's the story?

I agree and disagree.
I think the H&D2 boxes go in order of crapness with the H&D2 box being the worst :lol:

H&D2 is the crapiest box I have ever seen, witness below.

Image

I think the Sabre Squadron box is a little better but again it has really bad actors on the front.

Image

I really like the Courage Under Fire box. It has that WW2 feel to it :D

Cover may not matter to ppl who know about this game....but it does to ppl who don't know (eg: I bought "H&D Double-Pack" yrs ago, when I didn't even know what this games was about only because the box-art and the screenshots looked great) :D

Talking about screenshots.....I don't know why there wasn't any screenshots added to H&D2's cover :? :?:

Don't get me wrong guys, I will buy it, I will play it (technically, I already have) and I most likely will love it, it's just that the cover realy sucks. I mean the cover of FFF gave me a lump in my throat and gave me a funnyt feeling in my stomach it was so good. Even now, I recently re installed deluxe and there was the old FFF box cover as the install screen. Same lump in my throat, same funny feeling in my tummy.

Lol, now there is a cover that sucks. The Deluxe box is certainly not the best out of the whole series.

They could have done a lot better :?

I do like the Take Advantage layout though, but the H&D Deluxe picture in the middle of it is very poor. They probably spent about 10 minutes on it funny01

you buy a game for it's cover? As an alternative try reviews, this forum, word of mouth etc. Personally I think the covers are understated but look good. This is also reflected in the quality of the package internally - disc case, manual etc. Same goes for Sabre Squadron. We are talking British SAS here - understated, effective and of the finest quality! (sorry, couldn't resist that!)

i heartidly agree all of the covers suck, the SS cover, look at it! the logo isnt even in the freakin' center! but fellas, think about it in this aspect, the original H&D 2 cover is MUCH better than call of duty, color wise, etc, i mean c'mon, get a bit more creative. neither one would catch my eye if i hadn't heard about it in a magazine or played its' predecessor!
