Packaging / Design

Alright, this was a tough one to rate. On one hand you got a really good quality digipack on your hands here - everything is sturdy and thick, there's some interesting textures and so on but the overall design is completely fucked up.

Now this is just my personal opinion but I'm sure many of you would agree with me here. This set is definitely well made but it's got some of the worst (weirdest) design choices I've seen as far as artwork goes.

First off, all the Descent logos (and I do mean ALL of them - SEVEN to be specific) are done in a holographic type fashion, and the font used is rather out of place here (but as a curiosity I should mention that this font was used for the main title of the director's previous film Dog Soldiers, so I'm guessing that's why they went for it on this set as well... not that it makes any sense but... Oh, enough about the font already!)...

The slipcase is both matte and glossy (the artwork is glossy but all the black stuff is matte) - a rather odd choise but it works pretty good anyway. As for the digipack, this is glossy all the way with some really mixed artwork ranging from pretty decent to down right awful.

The best graphics would be that of the partually dug up skeleton while the absolute worst would be the mind bogglingly poor colouring for the digitray background image.

So let's sum it all up. This has got some of the most fucked up graphics I've seen on any digipack (and I mean that in a bad way) but the quality is totally top notch and even out ranks a lot of the standard digi-stuff you see on the market today.

In the end, I could go either way on this but I'll rank it a six just for the quality in general.


Disc contents / Extras

This 2 disc set includes most of the extras found on other regions but it only includes one commentary track (where as several other releases have two).

All the menus are in korean but there's not to many submenus so navigating works OK for the most part anyway. Menu graphics are pretty nice and definitely look a lot better than the some of the cover stuff.

And finally: all the extras come with optional korean subtitles.
