I don't like that the out of the box AI can't handle some of the basic game functions and doesn't even use them which leaves a big hole in the game (Airforce is the best example). There is no excuse for that and I worry about some of the features in the upcoming expansion will be handled poorly by the AI. For example I have very low expectations of the AI's ability to vote with some logic in the congress. I do however recognize that the amount of time and investment to make a competent AI for such a complex game would not fit into the standard game budget. I would easily pay a full expansion price that brought up the AI to a much competent player with varying options like having them play cutthroat (play to win a victory) or play more "role playing" where allies are valued and wont backstab just to try to win.
