We've talked about box art before, but that was good box art. Today, in honor of the new show Judging by the Cover launching next week from Yahtzee Croshaw, we're going to look at bad box art. Specifically, bad box art on otherwise great games. They say you can't judge a book by its cover, and in the case of these eight games, they are absolutely correct.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent (PC)

Originally released as a download-only title, Amnesia: The Dark Descent ended up getting a retail release in 2011. Unfortunately, the only thing more terrifying than the game itself was the box art THQ decided to use. While it does capture the "monster will totally sneak up behind you" vibe of the game, I can confidently state that nothing you see in the game will look as strange as that demented duck-looking thing on the cover there.
