LA Times report that EA's shares have dropped 6% after what they call the generally "lukewarm" reviews from critics - the game, as it stands right now, has a 74% average on Metacritic compared to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's 94%.

EA responded to the LA Times with a statement, saying that "critics' scores are highly subjective," and pointed out that the game has the hightest pre-order numbers in the history of the series. "This is an essentially big achievement considering Medal of Honor has been dormant for several years."

"This is the first year in rebooting the franchise. Medal of Honor is part of a larger EA strategy to take share in the shooter category. This is a marathon not a sprint - today's Medal of Honor launch represents a step forward in that race."

Our Danish editor Rasmus awarded the game a solid 8/10 in his review, and I think we can all agree that new game at least isn't a Medal of Honor: Rising Sun. Medal of Honor is released this week, so it remains to be seen how well it will sell.

Medal of Honor
EA's shares might have dropped 6%, but their amount of beard is set to go up by 70% when Medal of Honor launches.
