USA vs PAL art http://jasondeweyportfolio.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/ico-cover-comparison.png?w=625&h=439 --- Playing: Hitman HD Trilogy, Last Survivor, GTA V, Siren Blood Curse, ICO/Shadow of the Colossus, Splinter Cell Blacklist PSN: T-Snake94, XBL: T-Snake 94
It's one thing that the cover art looks like some halfassed scene from the game. It's even worse when this half ass depiction of a scene from the game doesn't even actually feature an event from the damn game. There is a monster that sort of, kinda, if i use my imagination, looks like the one on the cover, but you fight him in a cave, not in some snow covered landscape. And i don't know who this blond character is supposed to be. The only blond characters are the cavechick, which this definitely isn't, and Marle, who dresses nothing like this and doesn't use fire. The inventor chick Luca does use fire, but she looks NOTHING like this mystery character on the cover. It makes no sense.
And what is Frog doing? He's just crawling on the ground. Has he been hurt? Is he slowly trying to get up or make his way back into the battle? Why depict any hero from the game in a beaten down state, if that is what's occurring? Why not show everyone to be kicking ass and looking cool and formidable? What is going on? Who knows.
There also appears to be some farmhouse far off in the distance, complete with a grain silo looking building. Again, unless my memory serves me poorly, there's nothing like that in the actual game.
Terrible, ugly, uninspired, generic looking cover art that features many things not even from the actual game.
