If you thought that the Medal of Honor reboot could have been better, you’re not alone. Speaking to Eurogamer, EA executive Patrick Soderlund admitted that the shooter didn’t meet quality expectations. “What I can say is the game didn’t meet our quality expectations. In order to be successful in that space, we’re going to have to have a game that is really, really strong,” said Soderlund.
Soderulund also expressed some disappointment with review scores for Medal of Honor. “Medal of Honor is to some extent judged harsher than it should be. The game is better than today’s reviews are indicating,” said Soderlund.
Soderlund wasn’t willing to discuss specifics when questions about sales figures for Medal of Honor were raised, but considers the reboot a success. “I’m not at all saying Medal of Honor is a failure. It is a successful reboot of that franchise. We’re going to be strong in the future.”
Medal of Honor currently has a 75/100 average score on Metacritic. GamesRadar gave Medal of Honor’s singleplayer campaign a 7/10 and its multiplayer an 8/10 in our super review.
