EA's shares fell some 6% as some less than favourable reviews of Danger Close and DICE's Afghanistan-set first person shooter begin to hit.

Initially touted as a rival to Activision's phenomenally successful Call of Duty series, Medal of Honor has courted controversy with its setting inspired by the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan and reviews have criticised its weak single-player offering and stability issues on the console versions. Its Metacritic currently stands at 76 for the Xbox 360 version of the game, while IGN awarded it a 'passable' 6.0.

"Medal of Honor is one of the bigger disappointments of 2010," concluded Arthur's review.

EA remains buoyant about the release of Medal of Honor, telling The Los Angeles Times (picked up by Gamasutra), "The game had the highest pre-orders in the 11-year history of the Medal of Honor franchise."

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