EA CEO: Treyarch 'Far From Proven' in Eyes of Consumers

You may remember EA's executives during the year repeatedly talking about the publisher taking back the shooter category crown from Activision. The Medal of Honor reboot was certainly a part of the shooter genre attack, and while EA Europe VP Patrick Soderlund said at one point that the game didn't meet EA's own quality expectations, EA CEO John Riccitiello has told IndustryGamers that the title absolutely did exceed EA's expectations. Riccitiello also cast some doubt on the state of developers within Activision, when we asked him how he felt about taking back the shooter category in the wake of Black Ops' blockbuster success.

treyarch has yet to bring something with good quality

Pandamobile2557d ago (Edited 2557d ago )

WAW and BLOPS weren't that bad. Better than MW2, that's for sure.

AKissFromDaddy2557d ago

I disagree, they're awful with exception to Zombies.

Matthew942557d ago

mw2 was worse than aweful, it was an insult to gamers everywhere

no dedicated servers
Unbalanced perks
glitches and exploits everywhere
patches that do as much damage than good

Now that the newness of Black ops has worn off, I have accepted the fact that I really don't like it!

I beat the story and it was good. Played the zombie mode and it's ok. Played the multiplayer a bit and just don't like it as much. I keep bouncing back to MW 2 and like it more! Yeah it's got it's problems but it's still fun to me and thousands of others who still play it!

You can hate on MW 2 all you want, but it doesn't change the fact that over 800,000 people at any given time played it up until the first dlc came out. People have already started to abandon Black ops!

Panda, they basically took MW2 and fixed it. The only thing they can get credit for is Zombies if you ask me.

Spiderman 2? Best spiderman game out imo. And imo Black ops is the second best cod out.

BlmThug2557d ago

CoD 4 Is The Best CoD Title

RedDead2557d ago

That's why black ops is second best

ChristianGamer2557d ago

Do you mean the 14 million consumers? Keep talking EA

beavis4play2556d ago

i hate the CoD series in general.

however - i bought a 15$ copy of WaW for zombie mode and then the maps - and i'm addicted to it.

Yup, I agree. When EAs own game is rated in the mid 70's I don't think they should be pointing fingers at a competitor with a mid 80's game.

Personal experience, I bought Bad Company 2 and I was very disappointed in the game. I beat the game, because I paid top dollars for the game and regretted not trading it in.

I find it interesting with the sudden newfound EA Love!

EA are making great games as of now. They really wiped that horrible reputation they had back then. They have the WRPG genre(courtesy of BioWare), lets see if they can take the FPS genre from Activision.

BigKev452556d ago

I agree for the most part with what you said. However, their big military FPS with Medal of Honor sucked. I thought Dice rushed the multiplayer. Maybe because they had so much going on with BC 2.

The main Call of Duty customers will buy said series only because it has "Call of Duty" in the name- they don't care about the developer.

Hell, if it was a turd in a shiny box with "Call of Duty", people would buy these games- oh wait, they already do.

cyguration2557d ago

EA is on the road to redemption, they shouldn't stoop to company bashing....leave that to the gamers.

They just need to focus on making good games and keeping their mouths from getting themselves into hot water...speaking of which...

Burn Activision...burn...
