Lionheart spanked sorta by AVault

Yup, AVault kinda liked Lionheart, but they also gave it a 2.5/5 stars in their review of the tainted title. It seems their biggest beef was the crashing and lack of a patch, but here's some other criticism:
Enemy AI is practically non-existent in Lionheart. Just before adversaries appear in your visual radius, they head straight for you out of the fog of war and attack. Companion AI is not any better as they simply make a beeline for the nearest hostile and commence attacking. This presents the further problem of keeping your companions alive as they do not think of their own physical status before flinging themselves headlong into the fray. This particular AI shortcoming causes many needless save game reloads.
Well, to be fair, Reflexive, mortally wounded by the sales of their last two games, didn't run away when Interplay plodded in to their field of vision, either.
