Which game box artistic interpretation best reflected the actual game? Worst?

Now, what I mean by this is if you're familiar at all with NES box art you know that often there are liberties taken that may be far & reaching. Here is an example of wth:



A crusty guy with a laser (?) gun and maybe a metal fragment junk city in the background to sell one of the best NES games? C'mon.

An example of cover art that artistically REFLECTS the game? Castlevania:

I use to get caught up on the box art all the time. Reviews of the games weren't as good as they are now. So as a 10 year old kid you get caught up in box art. "WOW!!! that game looks cool". That's basically how it went. But to my knowledge, box art and the game are never even close.
