What is the toughest AI you have ever encountered?
« on: September 27, 2005, 12:31:05 pm »
Since Spore is said to have revolutionary AI engineering, I thought it might be fun to mention what other games have offered tough to beat AI opponents?  To me so far, it has to be trying to beat Civilization 3 AI while in Sid mode.  How about you?

Civ III AI isn't really any different between Difficulty levels. The computer just gets an incredibly large amount of bonuses and you get tons of restrictions. Certain chess AI can be tough to beat. I would say it is probably the most advanced.

Well since I haven't played chess on the computer since the early 90's, I decided not to put it in.  After all, we all know that computer chess AI (Fritz Chess for example) is probably the most difficult AI you'll ever encounter.  I should have stated that it refers only to games that you have played yourself, excluding chess of course.

The AI on Rome Total War is difficault... also the guys on Splinter Cell Choas Theory are also hard to beat when your cover is blown

i'd say civ 3. youve got to be clever if your going to disregard another nations borders so blatantly!
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well, I don't know about tough AI opponents, but 'Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis' has the most complex AI for animals I've ever seen.

in halo 2, when you shine a light in someone's eyes, they tell you to turn it off.  and when you bash an enemy from behind, your allies congratulate you.  i think spore should have a lot of small atmospheric elements like that.
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

Playing Empire Earth 2 on the hardest difficulty was very challenging, but it has a lot to do with the bonuses that they get and the penalties you get, as I think is the case with most RTS games. But, so far, that has been the most challenging AI I've ever played against, excluding chess
