Dear Folks,

Does anyone know if this game has what I think is called "rubber band AI" where your opponents suddenly catch up if you are ahead or slow down if you drop too far behind. I have very little driving skill but I would like to win or lose on my own merits.

If it's there I haven't noticed it. That's not to say it isn't there, but if it is it's not as overt as the AI in PGR or Run Like Hell...
Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.

I have only noticed rubberband AI on Faceoff events. Otherwise the AI will not catch up on a perfect lap.

I don't see much if there's any. Opponents will get far ahead if you do poorly and far behind if you do well. If there's a bunch of opponents clumped, they will bump each other and slow accordingly. Never understood the need to rubber band (and it'd be especially unnecessary in a game with a rewind feature).

Yeah I agree and I think this game need to be patch to fix the difficulty of events like overtake and faceoff are the two most hated events ever I race in a racing game.

I don't see anything at all. Rubberband AI is why I could barely tolerate NFS: Hot Pursuit, and I only played NFS: Most Wanted for like 30 minutes before listing it on eBay. To me, this feels like a better polished NFS game without the garbage rubberband AI.

I don't think its in this game, especially since there have been several races where I win by 5+ seconds, including a few where I win by 8-10 seconds.

I do see it in this game and maybe I'm using the wrong car for the event or is it the diffficulty choice should be change.

There is definitely rubber band AI. I got WAY far behind on a 1v1 race against the AI (I spun and sat there in frustration for a few seconds). I then proceeded to run him down in less than 3 seconds, and he was doing about 50 MPH just riding, I could see him from 1/2 - 1 mile away I thought he had crashed until I got closer and saw he was just hanging out, as soon as I got and blew his doors off, he sped back up and was right on my tail.

The 1v1 races might be rubberband AI, but I don't notice it in the proper races.

That said I was in a changing route race with the AI when there was a right turn coming up and all the AI decided to take it as a left. I finished the race with a margin of victory of over 2 minutes.
