Take a look at the newly revealed Mass Effect 2 box art:

The tacky green border isn’t doing the cover any favors, but that art looks like it belongs on a Nintendo cartridge. Frankly, it could have been much worse. They could have done that thing where Shepard has his back turned to us and is nonchalantly looking over his left shoulder, with a starclipse or a nebula or some shit rising up over his right. And he’s got a rifle dangling from one of his hands.

The adventures of cranky Mega Ma- er, Commander Shepard continue in early 2010.
