I don't get it, whats wrong with Bioshock Infinite's cover art?

Seriously, once again people/websites are making a huge issue out of a non issue. What do they want on the front? 7 characters with 30 enemies fighting in a massive city? That's called clutter. Cover art should be as simple as possible while conveying a general description of the game. Is it bc his female counterpart isn't there with him? What gives?

I think a lot of people are upset because the flag is burning in the back. I could care less.

My views on DLC, if it takes longer for me to work to pay for it than actually play it, it's not worth it. Don't buy Capcom games! GamerTag - RE2LeonS

People say it's too generic with the main character and a gun doing a stance.

I, for one, love the colors on it, and while not being the most original, I like it.

Seriously? Anyone ever heard of the Vietnam protests?

No, it's just how generic the cover is. It looks like a CoD cover or some random third person game....Bioshock is supposed to be above that.

You mean different from that. And it will be. Cover art is there to sell a game. Heck, Bioshock just had a generic Big Daddy standing there. How is that not generic?

It looks like every other box art out there. These mock ups would have been far Superior.

This. Bioshock 1 was awesome because no one had ever seen a Big Daddy before. Bioshock 2 was kind of cool because it had a Big Daddy and a Little Sister on it so you knew it was still gonna be Rapture fun.

Bioshock Infinite's looks like every other shooter that has been released. Some guy with a gun; how original... Maybe they are hoping to cash-in on the Call of Duty success and hoping people will buy this because it resembles a CoD cover.
