Many experts like to talk about that critical acclaim does not allow you to judge the success or failure of a game. Indeed, some new items, criticized in the media profile to the nines, manage to sell huge numbers. But there are opposite examples, where negative feedback journalist leads to significant losses. In one such case encountered publisher THQ, whose shares yesterday on the stock market crashed to a record 26%. The culprit was the multimillion dollar damages action Homefront by Kaos Studios, or rather - the estimates obtained from the first reviewer. The game tells about the invasion of North Korea in the U.S., was to become a real hit - and hinted at a pre-order, the quantity of which Homefront surpassed all other projects THQ. However, first estimates were quite low - on average offspring Kaos Studios just put 70-75 points out of 100, which clearly does not meet the expectations of the game of this magnitude. It is these low scores, they have not come to the experts, and caused the fall of shares Publishing. However, the leadership of THQ is in no hurry to lose heart. `This game is designed for the widest audience. Let`s wait and hear the opinion of players, `- said CEO Brian Farrell. Indeed, the panic on the stock exchange was premature. THQ representatives had previously reported that such a game as Homefront to succeed enough to sell a quantity of about 2 million copies. And given the amount of pre-orders to take this level will not be too difficult. Tags: Homefront
