As the video game industry's annual holiday rush gets into full swing, it's Joystiq's prerogative to bring you reviews of all the latest games in as timely a manner as possible. Hopefully, these reviews help you to decide what's worth playing in this busy (and expensive!) season.

To that end, we wanted to let our readers know that Joystiq's review of Medal of Honor: Warfighter will not be published today. EA has planned a day-one patch for Warfighter and has thus decided not to make review copies of the game available to media outlets until today, the day of its retail release.

We should get our hands on the final version of the game today, and will publish our review as soon as we've had adequate time to construct a proper critique. In the meantime, you probably have enough new games to keep you busy as it is, and we appreciate your patience. If you decide to pick up Warfighter anyway, we'll see you online!
