While unlocking hidden characters and playing through all the stages of the survival & time trials, I’ve noticed one thing. The AI in this game is genuinely terrible. Most characters all seem to have a certain inhuman pattern of attacks & defenses.
For example, on the hardest difficulty when you play as Blanka/Honda against Akuma, when you do a ball, Akuma ALWAYS reversal you with DP…doesn’t matter if you’re at mid screen or right next to him. Then you’ll see the AI’s inability to counter Zangief’s lariat (except cammy & when the AI has ultra). Ever play as Sagat vs Honda AI, Honda will continue to attempt to jump over your high tiger shots and getting hit every single time? How about the AI continuously using FA after FA when you do a single hit.
This AI is just so bad…it is absolutely no fun because the AI doesn’t behave like a human player one bit.
Now that I’ve finished unlock everything. I’ll never play against the AI again …ever.
I have been thinking about this for a bit. Would it be possible to create an AI based on top players? or even just some decent human players? A program that reads the behavior of a human player using replays as input and a data file as an output that players can d/l to their system and maybe you can select that AI and play against it.
This will require tons of work…i know…I can’t even imagine …you’ll have to use tons of replays vs each chars in the game…
Can you imagine what it would be like playing against AI of Daigo? =)
