Except the campaign map AI is most retarded in the Total War series...
...The AI is even worse in the latest game, Empire; it's so bad that, until a patch, the AI could not invade over oceans, so you could never lose as Great Britain.
While it's true the AI in Empire was totally broken, I really think the last patch fixed it. The enemy doesn't declare war on you randomly and now invades properly over oceans.
That's why the Xbox360 is the superior console.
It bricks itself out of the box. No updates needed.
If I could mod you up further I would. Funniest comment of the week.
