Good: Mirror’s Edge

EA Games, 2008 (Xbox 360/PS3/PC)
Mirror’s Edge was probably the most original full-price game of 2008, so it’s only fitting that it had an equally memorable game box. Now this is how you render a character on a game cover — it’s classy, beautiful and engaging all at the same time. By contrast, most games slap a hackneyed action scene on the front and add a few generic explosions (if you’re lucky, you might also get some motion-blur). We don’t know much about art, but we know what we like.
