Default Duke Nukem Forever cover art revealed!

I was going through all the big gaming websites to read all the articles about Duke's release date and came upon images of the cover art on Giant Bomb.

360: http://www.giantbomb.com/duke-nukem-...ob/51-1687971/

PS3: http://www.giantbomb.com/duke-nukem-...ob/51-1687972/

PC: http://www.giantbomb.com/duke-nukem-...ob/51-1687973/

I LOVE the cover art!!

It's very reminiscent of the original 3DR box art design. But the image of Duke in it sucks. I don't even mind his posture so much as his facial features which makes him look like.....a douche. That's the only word i can think of to describe how I feel about it. The overall design is cool, though.

I think it looks too gaudy, and the pistol looks like a low-poly model they threw in. I liked the black box with nuke symbol mockup more.

Don't mind it a whole lot but I would have preferred the Duke art that's on the forum banner. If you do look at the box art as a whole including the background and all it's pretty nice.

Being subtle and holding back has never really been Duke's thing.

I don't know, maybe the colors just look weird to me. I liked the Duke3D box art. Maybe the DNF box will grow on me.

I think it's awesome. But why is the cigar missing from the PAL boxart?

It looks weird. Maybe its the weird ass angle.

And it took me a while to realise thats not Duke's hand

I think Duke looks way to young. As much as I really want to love it I just don't really like this pic. I hope the collectors edition has something better because that's definitely the one I will have displayed on my gaming shelf!

I think it has something to do with legal issues as it could "promote smoking" or something like that.
