Each of the players on the field is guided by his or her own
Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is mostly based on that player's unique
characteristics. Twenty different personalized attributes were created for each
character. This helps keep the game going by directing the players to tend the
goals, set up for defense, pass the ball, etc. The only player not run entirely
by his/her own AI is the player you currently control.
