Oh wow thats horrible theirs another reason I have yet to pick this game up yet. You would hope that the AI would be a little bit smarter. I mean in L4D1 the AI was pretty decent
Keep executing a program hundreds of times and it will at one point make a mistake during those 100 executions. That's why some people say their game is buggy while others say they never ran into one, all part of the coding wheel of life. :p
Very true elven, even as a human ,when you practice one thing over and over all the time you might nail it perfectly, but there will be a time where you're way off.
I loled, but come on every game has bugs, none are 100% insect proof. Ill pick it up as soon as I get another 360, RROD ftl :/
Valve with patch this behavior within a week I predict. On PC at least, it will take a month for patch to go through MS QA.
the graphic is horrible! for a 2009 game, that is just horrible! for god sake valve, just throw away the source engine already!! I can't believe VGA nominated valve for studio of the year!! for what? for milking an ancient engine?
the people screaming for a new engine, the sad thing is even when Valve get down to releasing Source2 it's not going to be anything special, they are masters at keeping it simple so that their games will run decent on pretty much any PC. Don't forget they keep up with stats like how many people using the top end graphics cards and its not as many people as you'd think, especially with the state of PC gaming now I predict lots less people building uber machines.
Friendly AI is bad in pretty much every game on the planet, nice try though. Ive never played a game on any platform in any console or PC generation where i watched the AI and said "wow that was smart AI partner" several times.
seems like more people are disagreeing with the fact that the graphic is horrible! die hard valve fans much? I don't think it's THAT hard to admit that the source engine is indeed too outdated for todays standard, it isn't funny!
The AI is stupider than those nonthinking zombies.
I thought the graphics engine sucked when it was new. Doom3 engine was way better.
I thought it was bad the other day when I was playing, would't heal me or give supplies just hogged onto it even though it didn't need it.
Yea, this is still not as bad as when I once bought the King Kong game from Ubisoft's developers. It had this glitch where Jack Black was suppose to grab something and light a fire and wasn't doing it.
No thanks. I'll pass, I now have another reason to avoid that game
One sorry little glitch is your reason come on dude.
It's a pretty good game to be fair. Beats a lot of shooters out there... MW2 springs to mind as I say this...
wasn't expecting that.
And they said Uncharted2 AI is stupid... EPIC FAIL
Why do you have to bring UC2? everything always gotta have some kind of link with previous PS3 game. Every game got glitches. and L4D2 is meant to be played with other people.
what the hell was that
It's just a humorous bug, nothing more nothing less.
The friendly AI in L4D2 is pretty retarded. But the game is designed for real people and the bots are just there as place-holders. If you're buying L4D or L4D2 for single player, than you're an idiot.
Still. It would be nice to have a non-suicidal AI to fill any unfilled spots.
ROFLMAO HILARIOUS VIDEO!!!!
lol in the other side ps3 have killzone 2 the best ai of fps perio imo.
Okay... so how is it that I can get through on Advanced with little problem? But "yes" I also think that the AI sucks. It's just as bad as L4D's, with absolutely no improvement. I wish they would've allowed you to give the AI commands.
That video was awesome. Also, if you are buying this game to play single player then you obviously don't know anything about the game. Versus is where its at people.
The POS Xbox 360 can't process the level of AI as seen on the PS3. Jump out bots.
Isn't that what anybody would do in the situation? Ahhh zombies... screw it, I'm jumping.
yes the AI can be a bit slow but they are generally good, but they are way worst in verses especially when running through the maps like the Bridge on Parish
Oh right this game is so much more perfect than killzone2. In fact, I'm quite excited about batman a.a without some needless joker dlc that's half the game. I rather pay to play online & I rely on lag to have fun. I'm a xbox360 victim & Microsoft has approved this message.
9 year old engine? Lol.
So basically, you do something you really shouldn't do(unless you are a brainless retarded moron) and expect the AI to react accordingly? REALLY?! This is reaching so so far, what happened to gamers, they used to like games and play them, now it's all about exploiting and other BS to make a game or game maker look bad, lame.
Is Left4dead ur first source game played? cuz, all the source games I've played, rail walking on a 'dangerous' precipice has always been the norm.
The AI fails especially hard when it comes to jockeys. I've had them chase me with one on my head for 30+ seconds before.
Dumb bots lol
Valve should focus on Half Life 3/or HL2 episode3...and not rush out a garbage DLC pack as a full blown game without testing it next time.
o wow only a newb would rely on the AI
Same issue in all Valve games. Stupid AI.
when we advise bots to jump out this is not what we had in mind, but effective none the less. YLOD tech please take notes.
Another flop of a game with terrible AI. I guess that sums up the majority of the games on the 360.
LMFAO wow i thought the AI in Left 4 Dead 1 was stupid but that is funny lmfao I wonder if Valve will Pacth the stupidity
I noticed this aswell. The AI sucks. Plus it's a major annoyance when your just about to get an achievement and then, out of nowhere, Nick, Rochelle or Ellis, (haha, I always take Coach), just appear and ruin it for you. (Even if you shut them in a saferoom and walk a small distance away, they are just dropped next to you).
I have had a problme once, that's it. You really have to stay with them, otherwise they do some idiotic things. No worse them some of the retards online really.
...was that a normal route for the game? Looks like a purposeful deviation to me.
oh yea, the ai is sooo bad I was able to just complete Dark Carnival on advanced in single player, STFU
