In my opinion, the offensive AI is as bad as ever. As soon as I started playing, I remembered why I found a human opponent the last time around - the AI is incapable of mounting an efficient attack, even with far superior firepower :)
In the scenario I was playing, Allies had several tanks (Germans had none to speak of) and infantry squads, and yet failed to make any significant gains even though many of my units were deployed towards the rear. The tanks were driving aimlessly, and infantry didn't try to secure important locations (such as buildings). I regretted having deployed so many units in the rear because I believe I had a shot at pushing the Allies off the map entirely. Without armor, mind you :)
Now I will have to pick an operation where I will be attacking. It should make for a more entertaining play :) (because the defensive AI is actually very good in CC).
On the strategic level, the AI also does weird things. I selected one of the operations (again, I was playing as Germany), and the first thing the Allied AI did was to move away from the Hill 314 map... This seemed so bizarre to me that I immediately went back and selected a different operation :)
