From: Clarksville, VA.
I've owned the FPC-RS title for just over four months and have tried both AI and human (PBeM) opponents.
Initially, I thought the AI was "tough" - but that was before I had my first PBeM match against a human opponent!
Wow! I got my butt handed to me... and all within the first third of our match!
IMO, nothing beats playing against a crafty and unpredictable human player!
So, as a consequence of that "initiation," I've gone from playing the AI exclusively to playing against human opponents exclusively. Frankly, I find it difficult to play any AI matches now.
While I greatly appreciate the programming efforts that have gone into the FPC-RS AI... it is one of the more sophisticated AI's I've played against in my 35+ years (at least) of playing PC war games... it still can be somewhat predictable as the Attacker and not overly "smart" in some of its tactical moves.
I know from a convenience and availability perspective - nothing beats an AI match. But, IMO from a pure adrenaline and excitement perspective - nothing beats a match against a human player!
So, have other players found this to be true?
What do you think?
