Am I the only one that doesn't like the Underwurlde cover?

I've always thought the main image of the character in centre looked quite amateurish, nowhere near good enough to represent Ultimate and well below the quality of their other covers of the period.

Rat Splat is ace though, I like its comic panel style and how the logo is in a splatted rat. Is the artist remotely famous, did he do other cover art or comic stuff?

As with most Mega Drive titles the Japanese box art for Sonic is far superior to the Europe and US versions (in my opinion of course) :wink:

no worries, I'm enjoying looking through each time I log onto the site. Some great covers bringing back some great memories, a few people cheating though and posting up loads of good ones in one go so nobody else can use them :D

don't think we have had a duplicate yet either, apart from Atic Atac, although as the thread grows I'm not sure how far back people will look.

Yes, interesting cover that one, the bearded character is none other than a cartoon spoof of Paul Kaufman, head of Tansoft, he visited our museum, and posed for a couple of pictures.
