Misleading game box art


Conker: Live & Reloaded

The box says...

War! With extra squirrels. This is a brutal game, focused on the struggles of modern conflict, soldier. Sign up for this, and the shit is really going to hit the fan.

The game says...

The shit won't so much hit the fan, as it'll serenade you with opera, before you have to kill its towering, sentient self with bog roll.


Second Sight

The box says...

A taught, grounded psychological thriller. This is the most adult, miserable game you've ever played.

The game says...

That blowing men to little bits by hurling explosive barrels at them with the power of your mind is both big and clever. Screw mental illness: there's office supplies that need to levitated around the room.


Manhunt 2

The box says...

Erm... something to do with the importance of eye care? At any rate, we're pretty sure it's not advertising offing men with plastic bags.

The game says...

Stabbing men up the ass with a kitchen knife is socially acceptable.

    totally agree with gears 2, and to think i hear people boasting about its strong storyline, who needs plot when you have chainsaws?

    That's why I only ever look at the SPINES of the boxes... That way you get to see how much they really care about their games... RE: He bonded
  • philipshaw - June 1, 2010 10:31 a.m.

    Good article but them THUG screens are from THUG2 and not THUG. Anyway I love the MGS one at the end
  • kaleb-mayhew - November 20, 2013 7:47 p.m.

    yup
  • notthatgoodthanks - June 1, 2010 10 a.m.

    I can hear meik's sigh from here with the THUG 1 and 2 mix up haha. Great article however and the MGS2 one, for me, the most relevent to myself. God how i groaned when i realised that i just wouldnt ever be playing as snake for the rest of the game 6 hours in. Damn you raidan.
  • HawtKakez - June 1, 2010 2:20 a.m.

    I had no clue that there was a sex scene after my first play through of Heavy Rain. The character just commited a horrendous, regretful crime and you ask me he wants to make out? Are you serious? A very enjoyable read indeed.

    "greatest sport in the history of the world" Uh...theres no way on earth that can be in reference to soccer right? reCAPTCHA: Moans of....of what?!
  • michaelmcc827 - June 1, 2010 1:44 a.m.

    YOU LAUGH but I actually played Theme Park World...I never said I liked it though.
  • JoeMasturbaby - June 1, 2010 1:39 a.m.

    also the manhunt 2 one has to do with brainwash, and how the characters perceive things. i really dont get a few of these at all. theres so many other boxes that are more fit for this article.
  • JoeMasturbaby - June 1, 2010 1:35 a.m.

    HEY that tony hawk one is wrong. 6/7 of those images you took arent even from THUG. load of bollocks this is.
  • albinomonkey90 - June 1, 2010 1 a.m.

    when i saw the cover for Tony Hawk Underground i thought it meant they were finally burying the series
  • groxack - June 1, 2010 12:57 a.m.

    I still lol from mgs2.
  • IveGotNewSocks - June 1, 2010 12:53 a.m.

    Instead of Manhunt you should have had Bionic Commando. The cover says: a modern version of an nes classic. The game says : WIFE ARM!
  • Spybreak8 - June 1, 2010 12:48 a.m.

    I want to see screenshots on the cover damn it! lol
  • shyfonzie - May 31, 2010 10:50 p.m.

    MGS2: PSYCHE!!
  • n00b - May 31, 2010 9:50 p.m.

    actually your talking about tony hawk's underground 2 with the jackass stuff underground 1 made some sense, well the last time i played it was 4 years ago
  • bluscorp - May 31, 2010 7:25 p.m.

    THUG2 was my favourite Hawk game.
