Worst Game Covers Ever

46 second read


The guys over at IGN 1UP have put together another article where they name some of the worst game covers of all time.

Some of the terrible covers come down to nothing but a terrible idea with even worse execution, others are down to mishaps (*cough* Okami). Some of the covers are from old systems like the 3DO and others are more recent. It seems that no matter what we do, we will always suffer through the occasional horrid game cover.

I will never forgive my Orange Box Cover for causing slight blindness in my left eye. I curse the guy who was responsible for that cover, damn you neon orange man.

    ouch…. how did that slip through?

    Thanks I have updated it

  • Whoops. Sorry about that, my head is full of video game mush. Thanks for the correction baba.

  • Unacceptable, gentlemen. I’m never coming here again.

    Nah, I’m just kidding 🙂

    Anyway if anyone here is familiar with the TimeSplitters series, the box art used is terrible. The games are great and have a bit of a cartoon-like style, which looks cool in the game, but really bad on covers, IMO.
