IGN heeft een tweede preview gemaakt van Evolva waarin ze het hebben over hoe het spel speelt. While all of the AI fine-tuning still hasn't been incorporated into the game yet (I lost one mission because my soldiers kept shooting the animals we were supposed to be protecting), what we have seen so far is pretty impressive. The spiders (who you'll spend most of the game either blowing up or running away from) use a set of artificial life routines that make them seem almost lifelike. If you attack one of the critters when they're standing by themselves, they're pretty likely to run away in fear. Once they've fled, they'll look around to try and find any of their brethren who are nearby. If it manages to find some backup, it will return to the last place that it saw you, looking for revenge. If you're smart, you won't be there.
