Main Menu of the discs. The upper left corner of the screen plays various scenes. The music playing during the menu is track "15. Main Title" from the Original Television Soundtrack.
This is the cover art that was advertised on the Amazon website. Pictured are Hercules (center), and Nemesis (right). However, there has been some interesting photoshopping going on here. Herc's body is obviously from this picture, but his head has been edited a bit to make him appear older. Nemesis herself is taken from this promo pic. Click image for high-res version.
Actual front cover. Looks like they swapped Nemesis for Iolaus and Jason, which I'm really glad about, however there is still some odd manipping going on. The sword Iolaus is holding is taken from the one Herc has in this promo pic. Click image for high-res version.
