The U.S. of A has a reputation for taking a perfectly good game box and turning it into a generic pile of crap. Observe the evidence. To the left, we have the hauntingly effective European cover for Resident Evil 4 &#8212; a lone chainsaw-wielding silhouette lurking in a smothering woodland canopy. To the right, we have the American ‘re-imagining’ &#8212; Leon modeling his emo haircut. Other examples of this curious trend include <a href=" http://media.strategywiki.org/images/thumb/8/8b/Fatal_Frame_Boxart.jpg/250px-Fatal_Frame_Boxart.jpg" target="_blank">Fatal Frame</a>, <a href="http://www.freewebs.com/larro/Misc/ico.jpg " target="_blank">ICO</a> and of course, the infamous <a href="http://www.listropolis.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/mega-man-1.jpg" target="_blank">Mega Man cover from 1987.</a> (Oi! Americans! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!)
