Quite.  There's also a fair bit of overhead required for such which
can prove burdensome (cf Raph Koster's comments on the UO AI).

Nathan Yospe did some work in this area which he commented on on the 
list.  You should be able to dig up some of his bits in the
archives.  I don't recall exactly how far Nathan got, but the
results he claimed were impressive.

There are a small collection of AI links in the Kanga.Nu Library.
Additionally I'd recommend hitting any one of the search sites for
ALife.  Its a huge field.
