I've been playing solo on hardcore difficulty and for the most part have found the game to be pretty easy. Now this isn't me bragging about skill, because I'm pretty terrible most of the time in other games. What made the game fairly easy was the companion AI. They were killing what I needed killed and reviving me when I needed reviving. I think they are actually a little too good, as other than 2 or 3 parts, I got through everything on the first try.
Now for the problem. I'm at what I assume to be the final boss, and the companion AI seems to have gone to shit on me. They seem to forget to revive me, and the targetting seems to no longer draw their attention. Maybe I just got lucky and the AI was exceptionally good up until now, or maybe its just the chaos of the final fight that is making this difficult (and I realise that the final boss is supposed to be hard) but it seems impossible to target what I need killed while dealing with the madness going on around me and the once useful AI is not really helping me out the way it used to. Consequently, this section is way more frustrating than anything else in the game.
Did anyone else find find the companions as great as I did? Or am I giving Epic's programmers undue credit?
