Wow, I really hate this artwork. Its not iconic at all. Look at the boxarts for all the other games and you'll get the feeling of either 3 things, struggle, fantasy, or adventure. This cover says next to nothing about the game.
The only thing it really has going for it is the slight sensuality of the lifted bare leg, but thats not much.
And imho, the logo for this installment sucks as well, but thats a different post.
But in the end I wont judge a book by its cover. I just pray its better than FFXII. The story for that game was absolutly terrible. I got it during the midnight release, and STILL have not beaten it. I just cant bear to go on playing something so boring.
