"Medal of Honor" Not a Big Winner

“Medal of Honor,” the flagship first-person shooter from Electronic Arts, seems to be suffering more from disappointing reviews on its launch day than it did from the prelaunch controversy surrounding the game’s option to play as a Taliban fighter. EA dodged that bullet by changing the name of the enemy from Taliban to “OpFor,” but there’s no escaping the critics. Cowen & Co. analyst Doug Creutz says that “mixed reviews could impact the title’s legs as it will likely be competitively disadvantaged once Activision releases Call of Duty: Black Ops.” EA’s stock is down 5.3 percent.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
