Attack of the Good? AI

Post by Zane the pure on Wed Apr 25, 2012 9:12 pm

Ok, there are some games with terrible AI.
Either it's your opponent and its horribly broken (think SNK)
Opponent is retarded and is no challenge at all (most newer games)
opponent acts erraticly and interrupts everything with stupidity (too much counter hit)
opponent refuses to play fair (excessive spam/camp/turtle)
teammate is suicidal and drags team down (RE5)
teammate is hyper competent and doesn't let you play

In short, some AI are abhorrent.
But there are those few games out there that get it just right, and you feel as if you don't need other players to "feel" a game.
I've been playing a lot of SCV lately, and I believe its AI is fantastic. My favorite opponent in it is the "very hard" setting on Z.W.E.I. It spaces well, never spams, knows how to set up unblockable guard strings, plays very persistently (not overly aggressive) and forces me to stay on my toes.

Here is a perfect video example, One of the top French players known as the "queen" of Xianghua (and Leixia by extension) goes relatively even with it. It pressures her hard, and punishes both hesitation and hasty moves, and sets up some nasty combos.

Although I wouldn't claim myself to be as good as her, I go about even with it as well, and I always enjoy its company.

So post here about a game that's AI or difficulty in general seems perfectly tuned. Not too hard, not too easy, and more than enough to keep things interesting.

If we're talking about good AI, then this topic will die down VERY quickly. AI is a double-edged sword most of the time, cause without it, your partners will sit there and do nothing, but with it, you feel like you're fighting the boss AND your teammates.

At the moment, I can't think of a single game where the AI was ohmuhgawd perfect, because I've always found myself yelling at them to get their act straight or to fight fairly.


Many thanks to Just_Smile for this AWESOME Serah sig. Very Happy

Most Challenging AI this generation (to a certain extent): Demon Souls and Dark souls.

Most improved AI: Mass Effect 3 from Mass Effect 2; Squad mates are more compliant and less likely to stand there and take a freakin hit. They don't decide to kick you off cover as well.
