Two high-effort boxes in one day! Who would have thought.

I really like how this one came out. I think the official S.T.A.L.K.E.R. box was a sin against mankind. The game had purely awesome art, and they went and released a crappy box like that... so here's my go at it!

Hope you like it, comments and criticisms welcome.

Should maybe make the screenshots look more integrated and make the bottom of the back less blurry but still 5/5 + fav

#2, i fixed the screenshots. They're more blended in and slightly crooked now, so they look more integrated. :)

This is nice, and the grunge theme suits STALKER. I think the Mature logo looks slightly choppy. I guess you resized it, right? I'd suggest making a pixel perfect version using Arial/Arial Narrow so that they look good at the resolution/size you want. Re-sizing destroys the quality of quite a few logos.


Also just two mistakes I'd like to point out. PC Gamer "must buy" shouldn't be on a Xbox 360 box. Maybe OXM "must buy" would do the trick, instead. I'd suggest using IGN's screens as their watermark is lower or google Stalker images (or heck take screenshots yourself if you have the game on PC).The gamespot watermark is evident.

Never the less, good job.

Wow, there are awards from KRI, Strana Igr (Game Land) and some other russian magazines and expos :) Nice job. I should agree with dms, PC Gamer's awards can't be used in X360 version and "Gamespot" watermark looks bad too. Everything else is great. You are on your way to Hall Of Fame :)

i would really like this box to get in the hall, i think its my best, honestly.

thanks for all the comments everyone - i agree the watermark is a problem, i may fix it some time by simply using the clone tool to erase it.

I know i just used the bloody photographs for screenshots in my previous box - but I felt it was more fitting here. Don't worry, they won't be in my next box. :P

#9, i'd say your killzone 2 box was your best, but this is really great, i think it could reach the hall.

Oh yeah for some reason it completely slipped my mind about the PC gamer thing... I'll fix it.
