So, to you, what box art ended up doing the same thing the cover for Infinite is doing for certain fans of the series? First, the American Ico cover is horrendous. That's a given, especially since it looks like a terrible children's cartoon. The European cover, done in the style of an actual surrealist painter, is the essential representation.
I also think the Metro 2033 cover made the game look like a boring, generic action game, when it was anything but.
