Sorry if this has been posted before, it's new to me.

Hah, I knew it. I think it was an excellent choice, it really highlights the increased emphasis on action.

yeah, and to think of it that you could use both characters this time.(waits for the PC box screenshot)

Hm. Not exactly what I was hoping for, but actually it's quite cool. :)

It shows the rabidness and the fierceness of the game.

I myself was hoping for the picture where Raziel and Kain stood side-by-side in the red mist. That would've been cool, too.

Can't wait for the PS2 and PC version looks. :)

Thanks for sharing, mate.

Weeeeellllllll.... if they did do the individual box arts... then I'd like the pic that shows Raz & Kain back to back, like the display at the GGC where Goran and Catsuit went.

Not too wild about Raz & Kain about to whack each other, either.

And if that is the case (individual box art), then I'll have to get an X-Box. Because I'm definately getting it for PS2 and PC. My sister demands it. Henpecking at its finest. :p

I do hope that thing is just quickly made by the site you took it from, or something. The picture doesn't suit for box-art design at all. The Reavers can't even be seen, although there are two of them. Not only that, I think it's too simplistic.
I'd personally go for the back-to-back-in-red-foggy-mist picture or the rabid-slaughter-fest one.

Obviously it's a temporary image. I'm sure the covers haven't even been printed yet.

Lol, this is so obviously a fake. I can tell you a lot of reasons, but these are a few of them: The word "Defiance" isn't on the box, I saw this picture on a fansite somewhere (they would never use a picture all the people already know) and there isn't a "CRYSTAL DYNAMICS" icon on the box (it's there on all the other LoK games).... :rolleyes:

Actually, the word "Defiance" is there, but yeah, it's naturally a "fake".

Oh, I LOVE that first one!:D I'd proudly display that in my game collection. It's beautiful and very well shows off an epic feel.

But that second one has to be a joke! It doesn't show the whole picture. It misrepresents that Raziel and Kain are enemies. They're not! They're reluctant allies.

30th Aug 2003, 10:25
Heh. Looks like I'm going to have to wrap THAT one up in brown paper when I buy it. Wouldn't want the 'rents to get the wrong idea about their beloved little girl. :D

Seriously though, it's a really nice pic. Not what I would have done, but still really nice. They look so sweet and maladjusted.

30th Aug 2003, 13:56
Look carefully, in small red letters, Defiance is there. I can understand how you might miss it though but it is there!

30th Aug 2003, 14:33
Black cover with lok defiance just like the 1 at the end of the E3 trailer with the cool music, would suit me fine

30th Aug 2003, 14:35
I think it is fake, but if so I wonder why there isn't a picture of the Xbox version on the site (http://gamershell.pricegrabber.com/search_gen.php//topcat_id=3/topcat_search=1/form_keyword=Defiance/Search.x=47/Search.y=8/ut=51448dfe5e83ecf0) from which I took the picture.

Maybe we should actually wait to see the final cover.

Be 'shocked and awed'. It might be radically different.

They're all nice (except that last one), but I'd expect a more dramatic, less gruesome kind of cover. Sure, in highlights the badass-ness of it all, but I'd like to see something else.

I dunno. -shrug-

Kain = easy,breezy, beautiful Cover Girl.

Meh.. whatever. I would have been content with something more along the lines of the SR1 cover art. But who really cares about box art?

Ok.. I do :( (and I smell my games too)
