In Response To: Favourite AI only battle? (Moorpheusl9)

: In quite a few (if not all) the games, there are parts where you can sit back
: and watch 2 sets of AI controlled enemies duke it out before stepping in
: at the end to mop up.

: Anyone else do this? Just sit back and watch the AI fight itself? Or do you
: just wade in all guns blazing?

: I nearly always let the groups of enemies thin each other out - plus I just
: like seeing how the AI works.

: If I had to pick favourites...

: Halo 1 - probably the battle on Two Betrayals right after destroying PG #2.
: Also, just before Engineering on The Maw where you can actually get all 3
: groups of enemies involved (I believe this is the only part of the game
: where you can do so).

: Halo 2 - the end of Gravemind - 'nuff said.

: Halo 3 - probably the run up to Truth on The Covenant where the Brutes fight
: with the Flood. I usually step in and kill just enough Brutes to allow the
: Flood to start getting some combat forms up.

: Halo 4 - there aren't many enemy vs enemy duels in the game but when the
: covies chuck in drop pods against the prometheans - that's a pretty good
: fight.

There is the Covenant against the Flood battle on Two Betrayals, after coming out onto the snow field and there are several Flood carrying Rocket launchers. This is an intense battle that is fun to watch because you really never know which group of enemies will win this battle. I usually just hang back in a safe spot and just enjoy the AI battle and I mop up the stragglers. I agree with the rest of the AI battles you mentioned.
