Ok, this is interesting. It is similar to the artwork used to sell the game, making the brand identity clear. It’s a strong image with dark colors that sets an engrossing mood. It’s also different enough to stand out and be noticeable. It’s a bit exaggerated and over the top, but not too much and the style fits with the game and with a certain kind of film.
But, what is it that you say? There is another poster? Great! Let’s take a look at it.
This, on the other hand, is way over the top.
I mean, I know that the original game lays it on pretty thick, and like I said above I think images that are a little exaggerated have a place in the campaign.
But this is just too much. It looks pretty good from a distance, when all you can see is the rays of light. But up close the imagery and symbolism is just too exaggerated and in your face to still be effective. The whole thing just ends up looking silly.
But one out of two isn’t too bad.
