Let's play: 'Which box art is better?' (The Shoot edition)

When the PlayStation Move launches around the world later this year, it will be accompanied by the imaginatively--and rather wittily--titled The Shoot. (After all, players are tasked with helping film a series of Hollywood action flicks.)

Interestingly (well, it's interesting to me), Sony's designers seem to be "pulling a Kirby" (kind of) when it comes to this title's cover art.

The cover that will appear on the European version of The Shoot, for instance, will feature the following family-friendly art:

The cover of the North American version of the game, on the other hand, will feature art that's decidedly more malevolent.

If I were forced at gunpoint to choose one over the other, I'd probably go with the European cover, as it seems to do a better job of showing off the game's various enemies and environments.

Agreed! The American box art is just...boring.

The first one makes it look comedic while the second one makes it hardcore shooting game. The only problem with the second one is the logo that doesn't match the rest of the background. So the first one is the best of the two.

I agree, anonymous. I think the NA art would be OK -- or at least acceptable -- if the logo were different. As it stands, though, I prefer the Euro art, even if it seems a bit too humorous/light.
