oopa. bad expon. I just figured, no one would really care now, seeing as it's unavailable for sale anywhere...
I just gave it a go again, the AI is so good, maybe not cover to cover good, but in combat it uses strafe, the enemies with shields fall back to recharge, give you a cheeky melee if you do the same and can't finish them off.
it's also one of the only games I can think of that promotes such a high use of grenades, so many games make them so rare I forget to use them half the time, or fear using them and won't be able to find more. It's also the only game I can think of where grenades dropped by NPC can be detonated by another grenade - massive kill zones and flying corpses in confined corridors on the covenant ships!
Think it was something like 2003 when it came out, the textures and general level detail if quite sparse now, but the engine still works well. each to their own, as we were saying friday, after the first one, despite playing them back to back, back in the day, didn't know what was going on!
