Awful AI of your squad! Better to be a one man army....

But the only thing that i couldn´t stand was the fact that your squad is awfully unintelligent (there’s a better word to describe them but maybe you wouldn’t post my review….) it was really disturbing to tell them to take cover behind a wall (‘cause if you didn’t do that they will just run into the action to get killed) and after that if you gave them the order to shoot a soldier they just get out to the middle of the street and start shooting!! Also if you didn’t tell them to heal a squadmate, they won’t do it, even if they were aside of him. They don’t give you covering fire…. If you tell them to shoot someone and they get close to you to have the shot, they may shoot you accidentally, and if you have one of them with an antitank weapon and all the squad is on cover behind a wall, if you tell them to shoot a tank the “smart” guy with the antitank weapon will blow all the squad, because he wouldn’t think that it’s a bad idea to shoot an explosive weapon onto a wall, instead of sneaking aside of the wall and then shoot!!
When I really enjoyed the game was when I was playing without them, I really can’t stand to be babysitting a supposedly elite trained squad!!!!
Shame that this is a really good game, but with such low AI to really enjoy it.... :(
also the game has some annoying bugs as to be chest on the ground and wnhen you crawl your character will get up and float, putting you to the sight of every enemy you were trying to sneak by....
If someone wants to know what a squad is about, a squad that will really check on you, give you covering fire, obey your orders (thinking the best way to follow them, don’t just getting in the middle of the enemy fire) and disposing enemies by their own, really helping you, you must try STAR WARS: REPUBLIC COMMANDO.
THAT’S A SQUAD! That’s the only game I ever played that has an excellent AI for your squad mates.
I would really appreciate if lucasarts would publish a sequel to STAR WARS: Republic Commando. That’s THE best squad-team based game with a unique quality and personality for each squad mate that you’ll never forget!!!!
