Default Crysis 2: How can...

A game have enemy AI this horrible and live?

Yes, this warranted a new thread. HL1's enemy AI blows this out of the water. The game is pretty - yay.

Playing on Veteran "difficulty" (the irony of that word here....)

I can kill a bad guy with a sneak attack and his buddy less than 3 feet away shouts "ALL CLEAR!" This is repeatable.

A whole horde of the idiots (on FDR dr.) "spots me", calls for more troops and air support while the guy in front of me is shouting "ALL CLEAR!" and they're all patrolling instead of attacking so they obviously don't see me.

I'm only just past the FDR dr. enemy checkpoint and I could carry on for 20 minutes about all the stupid AI I've seen. L. O. Frikken L. This is pathetic.

And the refined suit controls suck. And the visor sucks.

And yeah I know the game has been out for a bit, but it's new to me.

Other than that - fun game.

Rant over Had to get that out of my system.

Nothing wrong with a little catharsis I suppose.

Just played a little more - I can't believe this.

I'm in an elevated position overlooking a pier. I have 2 lines of defense to go through. The furthermost line is lobbing grenades, which can't reach me, but which do land within killing range of the closest line.

I didn't know Crytek did comedy.

The AI is pretty funny at times....I think the original FEAR's was the best of all time.

Yes, I think so too.

Thing is I never really read much about this game, so I expected the AI to at least be on par with the first one. Why wouldn't I?

Well, at least I can't argue about the $16 price tag.

Yeah, the AI is retarded. Play on post human, they seem to be less retarded.

I think I'll try that. It really does kill the immersion in a game that has SO much potential.

I do love the musical scores though.

Yeah, the music is great. I must say the game has grown on me more over time, especially with the DX11 update and the texture update and mod.

I said it before and I'll say it again. The main theme is one of the more memorable bits of gaming music in years.

I'm actually just now finally playing through it now that we have all the patches, dx11 and crytek/maldohd textures.

so far very fun and enjoyable as I knew the first hour was before ultimately quitting due to the visuals lacking originally.

AI is pretty laughable though. Original crysis AI wasn't the brightest either and I played through it on delta.


I know the original crysis had a config file for each difficulty you could tweak to make the enemies smarter or react to you quicker, etc. does this have that?
