Over the past two years, gamers have been treated to numerous games featuring aliens as the primary adversary. Many have claimed to have intelligent AI and boast their Aliens behave and attack just as human players do. Inevitably, all have failed in that claim, but a few seem to have shined enough to rise to the top and be the cream of the crop.
So first things first, who are our top contenders for the smartest alien baddies in the land? Looking over the landscape of games out, I can safely say three really stand out both from media and user feedback standpoints. Halo3, Resistance 2 and Gears of War 2 all seem to have risen above all others. Sorry to those who thought Blacksite: Area 51 should be on the list.
