BattleField 3 Hands-On: Artificial Intelligence Analysis (GameSpy)

Mike Nelson: ''After playing the first four levels of Battlefield 3's single-player campaign it looks like I should temper my expectations and dismount the hype train. There's no denying how fantastic the Frostbite 2.0-powered visuals appear, but that's only one facet of this shooter: I'm interested in how the game's Artificial Intelligence performs under the heat of battle.

I hope that's one thing devs concentrate on next generation. This gen has gotten us great visuals and sound. I'm hoping for lots of great physics (destructibility) and artificial intelligence in all next generation games. My two cents.

Anything they do now with the "old tech" will only transfer to next consoles easily and better. Don't say it like you can't learn something from working producing 2011 games on 2006 tech, because that helps them get better with even the next systems and they'll be able to tap even MORE power out of them.

Yeah, don't misunderstand me, I'm just saying I hope the enemies in our games next gen are even smarter and more cunning. More realistic even.

The BF3 AI should be smart enough to sink the player if he moves very slowly in the campaign or allow AI soldiers to shoot from underground.
