5.0 out of 5 stars Great starting place
I bought this book in August for help on my final year university project. All I knew from the offset was that I planned on doing something related to AI. Having never been taught AI on my course it was hard to know where to begin but this book gave a great overview on so many different algorithms and areas (pathfinding, behaviour, strategy etc.) that I managed to pick...

1.0 out of 5 stars Amateurish.
The authour lack an ability to convey simple ideas. A relatively simple idea
is made harder by his inability to express it in simple language. At times it
very amateurish in his attemp. The book is also riddled with many errors.

Having never been taught AI on my course it was hard to know where to begin but this book gave a great overview on so many different algorithms and areas (pathfinding, behaviour, strategy etc.) that I managed to pick a project idea and get a basic start on my research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 27 July 2011

This review is from: Artificial Intelligence for Games (Hardcover)
This is an excellent book, i'm reading it to get ahead for next year on games programming and doing artificial intelligence for one of my modules. The book goes in-depth into a lot of subjects and it will give you a very good understanding of how AI works in most modern games.

Definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn AI. Also the code samples you get are very good aswell as pseudo code for all of the subjects.

Only concern is sometimes it can go abit to much indepth and it can get abit boring but mostly good read.

I use this as one of my core books for Game AI modules I lecture on. Very good introduction to game AI with plenty of good examples for techniques.
