I worked with textures on the front a bit and on the spine,
to give it that raw and bloody look.

also thought I'd would be nice, to give the box a red blu-ray case.

Don't like the red template. They look best when kept official looking but that's just me..

#2, I respect that, but does it look unofficial?

its nice and i like it, but the text on the back is tough to read even on full size and the logo feels weird, could be just me and the ESRB in the top corner like that just bugs me, but im just kinda nit-picking, good job though
4/5

This is one of those boxes where I feel the recolored template adds a lot to it. It's not distracting, and it fits the color scheme without taking away from the official look.

The front of the box is causing the most problems, to me. There are many images of all different sorts, and they are all blended together as if it is one image. It seems really scattered and it's hard to tell what exactly is going on. The developer logo is also very big, and it's missing an ESRB. Moving the Deep Silver logo to the right, getting rid of the Sony Entertainment logo that's not needed, and placing the ESRB on the left would easily fix this.

As for the back, I like what you have going so far. The images aren't scattered, and you can tell what's going in the background. One thing that I don't like is the screenshots. The placement is fine, but they could use some proper borders to easily distinguish them from the rest of the back. I think the "Features" text looks really out of place as well, and seems to clutter up the back. Ditching the Features, adding some screenborders, and fixing some of the color issues (Red guy), would improve this quite a bit.

2nd version

* Completely changed the front. I found a new artwork picture and thought it would look pretty cool to use it for the front, combined with some screenshots.

* I've added the new logo, moved the ESRB logo to the left bottom corner, made the Deep Silver and Techland logo's smaller and voila the front is a wrap.

* Adjusted the intro font (inspired by jevangod's wonderland font:))
Changed the Features text and moved it more to the left. added borders
to the screenshots, added some zombies and moved the rapper dude to the Left bottom corner.

Credit to Sens for the template and Eggboy'13 for the Rain Render.

This is very good - the back especially looks nice. However, the zombies on the right of the back could do with more blending, as they stick out considerabley currently.

#10, Thanks, I see what you mean by saying 'the zombies sticking out'

#10, updated printable version. you're right, it looks much better when
their a bit faded in from the spine and not just sticking to the spine.
