EA upset at the low scores from game reviewers for Medal of Honor Warfighter

EA is lashing out a bit at game reviewers for the poor reception and scores given to Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

The company stated the game does not deserve to get low scores, going as far as saying their internal "mock" reviews rated the game a lot higher leading up to its launch.

"On Medal of Honor, we're disappointed with the critical reception," EA Labels boss Frank Gibeau told investors. "Our internal testing and mock reviews indicated that the game is better than the actual score that we have right now, and we believe that it is.

While the company still believes the game will sell a lot of copies with the public, very early sales data is showing the opposite being true. Warfighter is currently on track to become the lowest selling game in the series with even EA already saying the launch sold "well below" their expectations.

Analyst Michael Pachter thinks if the sales stay low enough, EA might end up killing off the Medal of Honor series in favor of a possible yearly schedule for the Batlefield series.

In terms of review scores, Warfighter is currently averaging the lowest within the entire Medal of Honor series with an average score of 54 between the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions. EA had hoped the game would have drastically improved from the previous Medal of Honor game, which was a reboot of the series but only averaged a score of 75.
