I'm glad that the cops are more aggressive and I'm glad they're much smarter this time around. It makes it that much more challenge for the player. Don't be upset...pansy.
From the gameplay I've seen, they don't seem all that much more intelligent. I've seen them chasing and they swerve onto the sidewalk, clipping pedestrians in their way. I've seen them ram their target into pedestrians.I saw a video where they just kept streaming down a tight corridor only to get shot from the player hiding in the room at the end of the corridor....until he got bored and made an escape.
I take it that you saw the clip I just posted... Pretty disappointing that they are still that stupid and handicapped. I was hoping that they would at least give AI countermeasures for dealing with the playing being in fortified position or a bottleneck like an alley.
I like having smarter, more aggressive Cop AI but I just hope I don't run into a situation where I can bottleneck cops in an Alley with an LMG and they keep running at me to their deaths. Off topic why do people seem to think that the 3 era had better cop AI? It was just as crappy as 4. The only difference was that the 3 era had sh*tty combat mechanics and lousy driving physics.
Watched a guy earlier manage to steal a jet, he was then pursued by another jet who locked him up and fired missiles at him, one hit disabling his rudder, after a minute or two the engines failed and he had to eject.
