First, I'd like to say that that template was intended to be used as a cardboard box, not a plastic case; the spine, as it was intended to be a tick box, looks stretched in there. Second, Nintendo used that NTSC NES template for pixel art only, while its PAL counterpart gave more freedom to the design (Like in here: link ), I'd reccomend to use the PAL version (You would only have to change the front, as the back's practically the same). Third, I wish you had kept the "Metroid" text on the front arranged to the left (And maybe wider, so the right didn't look empty).

Otherwise, It's actually pretty good. I would have removed the stars, but official cases had them. And great job on the front's image, I love the way it looks, but doesn't fit with that template :( Good job, anyway!

There is little I could say that wouldn't be a simple recycling of what Manuel already put out there. The background image is from Metroid Fusion, but I can excuse that as the cover as a whole has a nice authentic look to it (with the exception of the template, as Manuel pointed out).

Small as they may be, I'd fix the issues already pointed out, and this could be pretty cool.

Pretty good!
I'm pretty sure the spine should be wider.

#7, There's ways of doing that without making it look bad.

#9, You could've tried to reconstuct a bigger plastic part for the spine.
