Resistance 3 is Now the Leading Contender for Box Art of the Year

The PlayStation 3-exclusive Resistance 3 will be up against many other first-person shooters this fall. Maybe some of those games will be better, maybe not. But can they possibly have better box-art?

The R3 box art was designed by British artist Olly Moss. It reminds us that, as with Crysis 2 and a certain upcoming modern war game, New York City is taking a beating this year. It also reminds us the box art can be cool.
