They still rubberband, they're still too fast for their own stats at some points, they still cheat...no, they haven't really fixed it.

What facets of the AI do you think needed to be fixed?

At 50cc, they just wait for you. The only problem they give to you are blue shells, squids and thunders...
100cc is the "real" one. If you are experienced, you will always win though.
150cc is the cheating one. If we assume you to be first, the second racer will always be faster than you in any straight section. Also, the racers will always shoot you their shells. I mean, if you are third, the second one will throw shells backwards.

As said before, not fixed. They are not better, they just keep cheating you.

While everything said above is true, they can be quiet smart with Items, especially bananas.

They really need to stop making it so the A.I. cheats and Rubberbands. It's really given the last three Mario Kart installments very little replayability for me. It's no fun when you should have a commanding lead in this game when you have 10 coins, and you know the AI doesn't, and yet they're still catching up to you and passing you.

They didn't not fix the AI. In fact, every time i'm first, I'm expecting a thunder at a critical point, 3 blue shells followed by a bomb and a couple of red shells. Worst start I had: Started first, got my first item, gets hit by red shell, followed by green shell, followed by DK with a star then a bomb and finally I fell in a hole due to this onslaught. I was the only one hit.

Something I also noticed was that when I was in second place in 150cc the character in front of me just bumped into a wall for no reason. It's weird. This isn't the first time I have seen this. It seems that the AI are smart behind you and stupid ahead of you.

I've had a very different experience with the AI. They like to bomb the crap out of me right before the end of the third lap of a race and force me to lose. They AI cheats so bad it's pathetic. I might not buy the next Mario Kart at this rate. I can't even finish a 150cc cup after doing the Star Cup first to get Rosalina.

The difficulty curve in this game just makes it annoying, not hard.

I'm just as ticked off that they changed Rosalina's voice. I liked her voice the way it was in Super Mario galaxy and Mario Kart Wii.

ok it must have different game because so far I easily did both 50 and 100cc modes with 3 stars on all, currently doing 150cc, done all the new tracks with 3 stars on 1 2 stars on 2 and 1 star on the other,

Either my game is different or you all just suck at mk badly. 150cc is meant to be a challenge, its the equivalent to hard mode and mirror mode is expert mode. Admitting a lot of the time they are faster than you and the old rubberband still exists but hey its all part of the challenge. use R whenever possible, keep banana peels, shells etc on you at all times for good defense if you are in first and if hit by the blue shell puck up and start over. Sometimes you do get raped big time with shells and stuff but its all good fun.

Its no different to MKwii. i managed to do everything on that apart from get dry bowser.

The problem with the last MK was that they upped the number of racers to 12 and had tons of item boxes all over the place, so I'd get totally destroyed by like 11 shells at once from each of the other racers, I did however manage to get everything unlocked apart from dry bowser.

This mk has only 8 racers again, and less item boxes, which is evident when playing old courses and noticing that item boxes in many places were replaced with just coins instead, so all in all, this is easily better than mk wii and just as good if not better than mk ds... in my opinion...
