The AI is still very very smart. Best in the industry in my opinion. But they took so many good features from the E3 2012 demo. I can't help it, but feel ripped off about it. I noticed a significant upgrade in the lighting. So my conclusion is that they exchanged the AI with the lighting.
My God, shut up about this. How many threads per day do we need? This is the BEST AI you have seen in a game. Ever. They're smart and ruthless, they try not to die.
Regardless, they explain why they had to dumb it down in the documentary "Grounded" by Area 5. It wasn't fun being murdered every single time. If you play slowly and not go guns blazing, they act very similar to the E3 demo. They run, hide, flank and surprise you.
I agree, the AI looked alot more interesting in the demo. Do you think maybe DLC could have smarter AI or something? lol
I am actually thinking of a patch. Isn't it possible to smarten the AI a little bit with a patch?
