The biggest issue we had was the enemy AI in the game. The enemies you have to fight may be numerous but they tend to fire their weapons all of the place at times and even passed right by us a few times without firing a shot. At other times enemy soldiers and vehicles were on highly scripted pathways that made them pretty easy picking.

With their track history, NovaLogic should market it as their own No-AI™ technology.

You know selling dlc before you patch the client doesn't impress upon me the need to support your shit. -massdev

Since the enemy forces in this game are supposed to be al qaeda, it would be difficult to refer to them as being intelligent to begin with.

"al Quaida was in Somalia"

yes who do you think financed all the attackers?

this battle was our first real run in with them

While it is true that local Somali Islamic extremists with links to Al-Qaeda as well as foreign Al-Quaeda elements were present in parts of Somalia from the early 1990s, the UN, humanitarian NGOs and Western journalists on the ground in Somalia have confirmed that, as of present, the Al-Qaeda elements and their local alllies have long since fled Somalia in the aftermath after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre and the US reprisals against the Al-Qaeda/Taliban alliance in Afghanistan.

No way #5, i mean cmon we know somalia was a major fck up for the US but blaming the Al Qaeda is a little OTT ain't it?

Ya'll just lookin for anytin & anyone to blame right now which is fully understandable under the present circumstances, but this whole crazy war crusade has gotta stop.

LOL I'm not blaming anyone, but number 4 seemed surprised that Al Qaeda was in Somalia, and in fact they were, and they did fund the terrorist cells there. I said nothing about blame, just filling him in on who was involved behind the scenes of this battle.

And how was it a major fuck up? Because we were undermanned and undergunned and sent men into a situation that we knew little about thanks to poor intelligence via the Clinton Administration?

Or was it a fuck up simply because we were trying to help those people?

You be the judge....

You're asking *why* it was a screw up. The original point was that it *was* a screw up, there was no question of why.

Whoever's fault it was, it was still a screw up.

Razorman,

don't be a tard. Who is saying they were not there? Not I, I am simply stating that they were getting funds from Al Qaeda.

As for blaming Clinton, did I say Clinton sent them in?

You guys don't read very well and it is evident in your posts.

Again, if you want to argue facts, do the research first.

See my above link for a good book to read.

You did say it was Clinton's poor intelligence. I think you meant it was the CIA's poor intelligence. No big deal, you didn't know.

North Korea threatened Tuesday to abandon the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War, accusing the United States of plotting an attack on the communist state.

NICE LEADERSHIP GEORGE W BUSH

dragging dead Americans through the streets? Even Mark Bowden, the guy who wrote the book, thinks that this game should absolutely not be made.

I can see also that NovaLogic is trying to make it ultra-realistic by adding health packs and ammo powerups scattered through the streets. I bet thos dead guys would have been okay if they'd just unlocked the secret areas with the health packs all over Mogadishu.

GOD this thing is a travesty. It boils my blood. On top of that, somebody told me that the PR guy for NovaLogic isn;t even an American.

I don't see it as poor leadership on Bush's part. North Korea is playing dirty poker to bring itself up in the world. Shame on them though, their people are starving and they're making nukes a greater issue. It's simple, stop making nuclear facilities and we'll help you out. Their just pissed we caught them red handed breaking the treaty and they are getting all riled up about it. Shame on them, but maybe thier whole "be defient" approach will give them more leverage and power. Thats all they want. I doubt it. In the end, these guy are going to attack and and say it was in their defence, and then the real trouble will start. I think it boils down to jealousy. Nobody forced them to sign those treaties, but they did and the world was better for it. Now they have this, but they US has these facilities, so phoooey on you. We will to. Blah, im going to bed.
