5 Wonderful Games with Absolutely Horrendous AI


We live in a time where robots are everywhere. Some of them are pretty smart, while others struggle to do the simplest of tasks. This also applies to the world of video games, where the computer characters can either be highly intelligent death-dealing machines or clunky cannon fodder who seem like they’re missing a bit of code or two. Some AI is so bad that it can even ruin your enjoyment of a game.

Halo

 

I started playing Halo early one afternoon. Several hours in, I figured I should probably take a break to get a bite to eat, so I said to myself, “I’ll just finish this one level first”. Suffice to say, I never did get around to eating much that day. –Game Over Online
Weighing in with 13 maps, 26+ game modes, and a slew of adjustable options, Halo is a veritable cornucopia of multiplayer goodness. Add System Link Support to the fray, and you’re looking all night frag-filled benders. –Kombo
The animation on each Marine you encounter is remarkable, possessing almost endless moving parts and distinct facial features, while the lighting, textures, and massive landscapes prove Halo and the Xbox to be without equal on the console market. –All Game Guide

Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

 

Starcraft II has certainly been long overdue, but the immense waiting has really paid off. Blizzard have another jewel to add to their crown, and it’s easy to see why. By not veering too far away from the original formula, Blizzard haven’t at all ‘played it safe’ – they’ve recognized a gaming model that works and then given it a much needed 21st century polish. –MEGamers
If development of multiple bases, careful upgrades planning and intricate micromanagement make your blood boil, you will embrace StarCraft 2. Had it been released 7 years ago, we would have wholeheartedly recommended it to anyone even remotely interested in the RTS genre. But that era is gone now. Today, StarCraft 2 is just a remedy for nostalgia. –Absolute Games

The multiplayer is so smooth, so challenging, and so much plain-old-fun that I can only think of one RTS I ever played that is outright better. The single-player is weaker, in many ways, than that of other RTS titles — but hey, you don’t have to play it, after all. And so, the line you’ve all been waiting for: Yes, Blizzard has indeed done it again. –GameSpy

Resident Evil 5

 

Resident Evil 5 is a confounding game: it can be criticised for both mirroring its predecessor too closely and also for changing too much. When all’s said and done, though, it’s a decent romp that’s brilliant when it’s not bewildering – and when you consider the sheer amount of content included for the asking price, it’s worth a punt. –Push Square
As with Resident Evil 6’s remaster, Resident Evil 5 adopts 1080p and 60fps (almost always) successfully. Always keeping in mind that it is a game launched in 2009 and it’s gameplay mechanics are kind of dated, it can be a good game for those who love non-stop action. There is no survival horror moments, but enough content to be entertained for quite some hours and high-end production values. –LaPS
Resident Evil 5 suffers from duff AI and a few other niggles, but is overall a fantastic, content-packed action game with brilliant co-op appeal. –Playstation Universe

Gears of War 4

 

Even with a new studio leading the development charge, Gears of War 4 is a return to form for the series, and is continual delight, even if it does unnecessarily cling for dear life to the past. –Game Informer
Gears of War 4 is a triumphant return to form for the series. What’s more, it proves that the franchise is more than safe in the hands of The Coalition. A visual spectacle that dials back some of the macho ridiculousness of the original trilogy whilst refining and expanding the gameplay, it’s genuinely a game to own an Xbox One for. –GameSpew
Gears of War 4 as a whole looks interesting and it’s definitely a pleasure to once again become an armed warrior and jump from cover to cover. The game may not impress in terms of graphics, and the universe is not as captivating as it used to be, but it’s still good, demanding “Gears” – and that’s crucial. –Eurogamer Poland 

Battlefield 3

 

I enjoyed my time with Battlefield 3’s multiplayer, and I wish my thoughts about the game could end there. Unfortunately it also tried to force a totally unnecessary single-player game on me, and the browser interface looks like it came straight out of the 90s.GameCritics
The PC is the obvious choice for Battlefield 3 — if you can run it — but there’s a catch. A very large, significant, infuriating catch that may prove a deal breaker for some people. The name of this catch is Battlelog, and it’s by far one of the worst ideas in video game history. –Destructoid
