    Agreed. This cover somehow reminds me of Blue Dragon Plus

    The USA version must have flown under my radar, this game looks really good.

    I finished this game under 6 hours, including the second run with SUPER-HIPER-MEGA charged last boss, and i'm not very good at games like this. Also, very repetetive, easy, etc.

    I like this boxart [​IMG]
    Is this a dungeon crawler? There must be some reason why I avoided the U release...

    Holy crap, they really did butcher the European boxart to make it look suitable for kids. The American boxart looks a bit adult-oriented. Haha

    Looks can be terribly deceiving. It's really just a repetitive dungeon crawler with absolutely no story content whatsoever except you doing whatever the queen wants.

    I like this boxart. It's rather... Appealing. I saw the boxart for Euro version and thought, "Whoa, is that the same game I'm thinking of?".

    the american boxart is fucking horrible. once you get over the "omg shes got a belt over her vagina" factor you might realise this. the euro one isnt great but its passable at least.

    If they thought the US boxart isn't appropriate, then they could have just used the Japanese boxart instead.
