Medal of Honor 2010: Low Review Scores Defended by EA

For those of you who paid particular attention to Medal of Honor‘s far from perfect review scores, we have more feedback from that as EA has decided to speak out on the review scores in their defence.

Our initial review roundup thread told you about some pretty good scores for the game, with IGN UK’s 6/10 being the only score which stood out amongst the rest.

Skip forward to today though, and EA CEO John Riccitello has recently issued a statement regarding the review scores, stating that the low scores were provided by a ‘narrow demographic of reviewers’. Here is more of his statement below:

“[Low scores} come from an excpetionally narrow demographic of reviewers which is offset by the amount of people buying the game. The game has exceeded our plans in both sell through and sell in, and has exceeded our expectations. So it is absolutley a clear success, and consumer feedback has been strong and its a franchise we can successfully continue in the future. ”

EA are under the impression (we agree) that scores generally in the mid-70s range are considered to be good, and we have actually read a lot of contrasting reviews praising the game.

After having a few weeks to sit down intensively with Medal of Honor, do you still stand by your initial positive/ negative feedback for the game? Let us know your thoughts on this one. There’s more from Riccitello over at VG247.
