    Well This is Quite Ugly...


    That's the cover for the recently announced Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition.

    The GotY Edition will include a download voucher for the animated feature Batman: Year One; the Catwoman, Nightwing, and Robin DLC; the Arkham City skin and challenge map pack; and the Harley Quinn's Revenge DLC.

    I blame the neon green case. I'll pass judgement once I see how it looks with a PS3 case.

    I Agree with that ^^^

    Two things wrong with that and the case certainly is one of them

    They flooded the cover with text. It looks damn ugly. They should've just left the pic of batman and what it includes.

    That cover looks cluttered as fuck, and there's no way the DLC can be 360 exclusive. I mean, what would be the point in doing that?

    It obviously can't be exclusive when it's confirmed that there are PS3 trophies for it. I think it's simply referring to the fact that it only comes with a code that can be redeemed on "X-Box Live Only" because they're not including it on the GOTY disc itself. On the PS3 GOTY case I'm sure it'd say "PlayStation Network Store Only" as well.

    And yes, that artwork is hideous as all hell.

    Ahh, logical reasoning. I'm putting my money on that as well.

    I never liked the whited out cover for AC anyway... I mean it's cool maybe for another game but it should be darker for Batman...

    Thanks for posting but I should have known it would get a GOTY edition and im glad I waited for one!

    side note: I love and hate the Arkham Batman games with a passion...

    First pic that I found. Didn't feel like editing out the X360 case. I don't think it looks quite as bad, but still... looks like a fucking magazine ad, not a game cover.

    They smothered it. The Batman AC logo should be at the top and the center. The little red part that says Bonus Content should stay and all of the comments should be taken away.

    Was thinking that too, though it mostly reminds me of the front of those cheap gossip magazines, y'know the ones that tries to tell, all the stories the magazine contains on the cover?

    I will point out all the issue with the boxart.

    1. It is too cluttered.
    2. Way too much text.
    3. Batman has been inverted. Why the hell is he white?
    4. Too many 10/10 and 5/5 ratings on the cover.
    5. The game title is too small.
    6. The annoying big red banner with 'game of the year' slapped across it.

    This is how to do a game cover.



    Minimal and it stands out.

    It's ugly, but at the end of the day... I don't buy games to stare at the cover artwork.

    @ Timeless. That is a mighty fine cover

    The Batman one is pretty nasty and cluttered. Might be GOTY, but definitely not cover of the year
