The New York Times' reviewer begins his assessment of "Medal of Honor" by saying:
"Playing Medal of Honor, the new military combat game from Electronic Arts, I couldn’t stop thinking two things. First, E.A. is supposed to be better than this. And second, Activision and Call of Duty don’t have much to worry about."
After listing a number of game-stopping bugs and glitches, The Times' reviewer sums things up this way:
"Medal of Honor is the most disappointing game I have played this year."
A review of this sort, coming from the New York Times, will do nothing to enhance EA's reputation in the business community.
