EA’s big shooter of the year, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, is releasing in 5 days time.. or is it? We haven’t had any notifications from EA but while I was fact checking this morning on this main article I noticed both BTGames and kalahari both have October as the expected date and no longer the 26th of October?
Earlier this month FIFA 12 was released on time locally but it quickly became apparent that their wasn’t enough stock to go around and now it looks like the same issue may be happening again.
But then again it may not really matter as it has been revealed that EA are not sending review copies out to the press until the day of release. Sometimes this is done to protect the game from piracy or spoilers but in 90% of the cases it is done because the game simply isn’t very good.
I’ve not been excited about this game at all and so far nothing I have seen, or not seen, has made me believe I have made the wrong call on this one.
My official recommendation, wait. Wait until the reviews are done and then take the plunge if it’s safe otherwise you could end up wasting a lot of money that could be better spent elsewhere.
