I don't care what you say, this is my best box yet. Hours of work went into this box. I rendered the 3D logo but it didn't look good, so I tryed again. I eventually decided to use this logo, which I think looks better with the style of the box anyway. I suggest you view full size before you go saying that it's too dark or whatever. This is the hardest box I've done so far, and I hope you like it. Credit to Dersnap for the template. I'll upload the printable later.

#2, printable is bigger and less dark down there, but I can brighten it later.

Love it, but the back is too dark for my tastes. And I like how you've stayed different, but IMO, the grungy/dark theme doesn't work at all. Still, it's a well made box, so +fav

And with the quotes, try not to make it first-person, especially since IGN is a company, and not a single person ;)

It looks nice. But I seriously don't like how dark the back is. Also, that theme doesn't fit this game. Oh yeah, the quote on the back is easily lame. :P

#11, well that quote is still lame, weather it's real or not.

Dude, you're so immature. Changing the box over one stinking quote? I only said that because it actually sounds like it's being said by a person, when IGN is a company. It's just an opinion. I was about to add it to my favorites list, but I changed my mind, because nothing is good enough for you. -.-'

#10, it's a real quote. If I made it look like all the other Shadow of the Colossus boxes, then would you like it? Huh? I doubt it, because you won't like it no matter what I do.

#13, the dark is the theme, because it's different.

#11 Even if it is a real quote, I cant imagine IGN.com (a company) ever putting that on a real game box. Especially when its written in first-person text.

#10, The brightness looks cool on my monitor, I like the dark and gloomier approach, captures how threatening the colossuses can be.

I really like this box, one of the better Sotc boxes IMO. One reason is because it doesn't follow the formula of the official box. Oh and author fav.

*Crawls out from under the huge pile of recent SOTC boxes* Very nicely done. I like the style you went for. I agree with E_G about seeing the darker side of the game. Box & Auther fave.

#10, What the hell are you talking about? Oh, and by the way, that isn't immature, and you shouldn't be one to call others immature anyways, you hypocrite.

#19, It's not that simple. He doesn't dislike my brother's boxes because he really dislikes them, it's because he dislikes him. That's not right.

But I'm not going to start a fight with you here, Chibi, if you want to fight PM me.

Not bad, but you should try to make some more details in the very dark areas visible. there`s way too much plain black

#24, well, actually, there isn't that much black space. There's a little, but the theme is dark, which no one else has tryed.

#26, sure there is... most of the colossus (or colossi?) is a plain dark... well... blotch (or is it blot?). talkin about the areas below the title (front) and the colossus on the back. I`m sure there are some details you could make visible and keep the dark mood.
