IA on AI

NFL Tour AI comes up a yard short?

I haven’t gone out of my way to look for reviews on NFL Tour. This one, however, popped the alarm on my Google Alerts.

Gaming Today Impressions Of NFL Tour (360)

Here’s the quote that got me:

Unfortunately, the gameplay is just way too simple. The game is so simple to play that a monkey could easily score a touchdown on the lacking AI defense of the computer. If you want to win games in NFL Tour, just snap the ball and pass to anyone. Don’t worry… unless you are terrible, there is no such thing as an incompletion. I put in about 6 hours of gameplay and my QB accuracy is 100%.

I guess that really shows that it takes a team like the Madden/EA crowd 10… 20… 30 years of working on a franchise before they can get AI to what it needs to be (almost?). Sports AI will always be a challenge… and this title looks like they are trying to prove it.

I don’t do game reviews… but I think the consensus speaks loads.
