Things AIW Sucks At

Every day, there are at least a dozen noobs complaining that AIW is a bad FPS, because they can't even seen their guy move.

This is horribly unfair. There are so many genres that AIW does just as badly as FPS, and yet they never get any attention.
  • AIW doesn't have any different cars to unlock, any mods to add to them. It doesn't have even a simple drag race, much less spell modes like drift competitions or outrunning cops through traffic. It has no collision physics or damage effects. It doesn't even have a nitrous button that makes cool, unrealistic glowy tracks and weird sound effects. It is the worst driving game ever.
  • AIW doesn't have realistic 3D terrain maps of even a single region, city, or airport. Not only is it missing controls for things like ailerons and landing gear, it doesn't even have basic rudder and thrust controls. It's a worse flight sim than Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0 or MicroProse F19, and those games are 25 years old.
  • AIW doesn't track economies, trade, armies, diplomatic relations, royal family trees, or revolt risks. It doesn't have a single historical king or general or any historical events. It doesn't even have random events. I cannot imagine a worse historical grand strategy game.
  • AIW has no sophisticated chess algorithms, no opening gambit and ending books, no clever pruning optimizations. While crafty can beat grand masters, AIW cannot even play chess at the level of a 2-year-old who knocks over the pieces, giggles, and sticks them in his mouth.
  • AIW does not understand complex sentences like an Infocom game. Even the old Scott Adams Adventures that ran on a 1K TRS-80 could handle two-word sentences--but AIW can't even handle one! There are no riddles, no conversations, no items to use with other items in clever ways--in fact, there's not a single puzzle in the entire game.
  • AIW does not keep track of relationship points, much less let you ask characters out on dates and expect you to memorize personal details about them. This makes is an absolutely terrible dating sim.
  • AIW has no sunglasses, purses, jewelry, or other accessories to put on the cutouts. It doesn't even have clothing. No little girl is going to play a dressup game this pointless.
  • AIW has neither chutes nor ladders. You can't get any worse than 0 for 2.

lol

You should put this in your profile and then just refer each FPS noob to there.

Unfortunately, more than half probably won't get the point, and even fewer will see the humor, but that's kind of what's so funny about it.

For the last couple of weeks I have been playing AI War off-line. And I must say: it has been one of the worst games i have ever played! Always the same messages in the shoutbox, always the same mission to carry out... You cant even buy implants or organize clan battles! 2 weeks in I STILL haven't received response to any of the messages I have sent to my clan members. Im terribly dissapointed. GAS better fix this soon for im not sure if im willing to pay good money for this crap any longer!

I like that one even better than any of mine.

But hey, if you think i sucks offline, try playing it off the computer entirely. You spend all this time building up a character sheet, pick someone to fight, roll a few handfuls of dice, and, since you have no idea exactly what each of those dice actually do or how to use them together with your stats, you don't even know whether you won or lost.

ROFL!!! Thanks guys, I really needed that laugh.



Although, in the n00bs defense (as much as I hate to defend them) the screenshots do make the game look like an fps. Maybe GAS should think about adding a few new ones that don't make it look very interesting at all.

I never looked at the screenshots before, but look at this one:

A player named "Player," a completely empty SB... In fact, the SB is empty in every screenshot. And, while they don't show the name of Player's clan, how much do you want to bet that it's "Clan"? So, maybe they aren't going to attract the most well-spoken, friendly, and imaginative people that way. :)

wow all the post are 2009 ...

From level 7 you are fair game for everyone! Who has a high level and relatively few skills, is a popular destination for hunters of experience points. This means you are attacked not only by the fittest, that are looking for credits, but also by lower levels, who want to collect experience points.
Humm so you waist time and $ ( well some do ) to have a little fun and then .... get Raped

by every high LvL peep playing the game



Sounds like a socialist commie type game the top feed off the bottom .." wait " we have a President trying to do the same thing :huh:



oil well never mind... anyone want my Account :sleeping:
