Crysis 2 has 'best AI in gaming history' - Crytek

Developer confident its aliens aren't stupid

Crytek has claimed that the enemy AI in Crysis 2 is the most sophisticated in video game history.

Speaking exclusively to CVG, Crytek boss Cervat Yerli said the title boasted "thinking, fair" foes - which is good news for those who want their enemies smart, but not Skynet smart.

OXM man Ryan King reported that the FPS was the best-looking title he'd ever seen on 360 earlier this year. Since then, Crytek has revealed that the game will be playable in full 3D on 360, PS3 and PC when it is released at the tail-end of this year.

"We have the most advanced AI system in a game," Yerli told CVG. "We think that Crysis 2 has the most advanced AI for both humans and aliens you've ever seen.

"They will be showing tactical co-ordination, they will be more challenging but not unfair - they will be truly intelligent, thinking, fair enemies.


"I think from that perspective our gameplay experience will be very unique because on one hand you have a world that allows freedom, on the second hand a hero that allows freedom - but also an enemy that adapts to freedom and provides you constant challenge no matter what you do."

A Crysis 2 Nano edition was outed earlier this month. It includes a nano-suit backpack - but will cost you in excess of £100.
