I have seen 3 full stacks of elite troops camp in attack range to my capital and ... retreat. And inactive and stupid battle AI in nearly all my sieges it even attacked me once (siege battle!) with a single general unit. Walked up to the gate to "flame it" and.. died instantly by a random ballista
So no, the AI complaint is not over the top This is the worst AI of any Total War game ever.

I haven't run across anything that would make me go "meh" over the game.

My personal favorite was during the seige's in Shogun2, where walls were missing on cliff based buildings. And your entire army could climb a sheer wall.
Angry Joe's review of the game featured some absolutely hilarious goofs from the AI in this game. I think my favorite was the soldiers climbing the siege tower, then jumping off beside the wall, rather than going ON the wall.
It's getting to be ridiculous that every Total War game just has absolutely terrible AI like that, despite their promise (every single time) that they've put more people and more time into the AI than ever before.
