The perspective granted by a shadow box gives a sense of looking in on a world that a flat picture just doesn't. Take a look, for instance at this piece by Pixel Eyes Art, that brings the SNES's Legend of Zelda map to life.

Pixel Eyes Art looks to be focused wholly on shadow boxes, though not just on making maps. He's also made old NES game covers:
