The much anticipated reboot of Medal of Honor was released yesterday, and a number of bad reviews have had an effect on EA shares. The game developer was certainly shocked by poor review scores and deiced to comment on the situation.
After reading over what Electronics Arts said in the statement, it seems as though they are confused as to why the media and consumer has not give the game a chance. EA also points to the fact that Medal of Honor has not had a new version for three years now, so this new reboot is just the first step in a host of new games.
You have to agree with them on that part; in the few years that the Medal of Honor franchise has been in the wilderness gaming has moved on – you only need to look at games such as Modern Warfare 2 to understand what I mean.
After EA had read those negative reviews and seen their shares fall by as much as $1.05 yesterday, they felt it important to say, “This is a marathon not a sprint -– today’s Medal of Honor launch represents a step forward in that race.” Read the statement on LA Times.
Do you agree with EA? Will you give Medal of Honor a chance, or have the poor reviews persuaded you otherwise?
