the AI in ArmA 2 is the best real AI you can get in a game nowadays. They are completely independent and make choices on their own all the time.
There simply is no AI out there that is comparable with it, because the others are restricted with scripts, waypoints, very limited choices and do not communicate with each other.
Sure, it has its flaws, but if it wouldnt, it would be the perfect AI. And that simply isnt possible right now.

If you think its a little unfair, which it seems sometimes, then I would suggest playing with the ACE2 mod. The AI is slightly improved in it, so it isnt as uber anymore and seems more realistic. However, the game is easier that way, too.

Waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
