I disagree. I feel they've turned the Elemental debacle around with Fallen Enchantress, and then improved the game even more with Legendary heroes. Pitifully primitive AI? I can only name one game where the AI is challenging on the same terms as the player, and that is Gal Civ II. That took a couple of years of development, and I suspect it will be the same for FE, but it's already good enough for me, although I prefer to let the AI play with bonuses.
