best health thing is POKEMON (like red and blue) and worst would be like the new prince of persia

Medal Of Honor Pacific Assault had a very nice health system. It was like a normal health bar, but after it went to zero, you fell on the ground and your vision went colourless, and then you had to call for one of your buddies who was the medic in your team... I don't remember his name... And the medic had a limited amount of doses he could give you. And also it was cool if a buddy was down, to pick him up on your shoulders, scream for a medic and carry your buddy to him... Wow that game was nice lol.
You might enjoy the free-to-download online shooter Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. That's pretty much how death works in that game (unless your corpse takes so much damage that you're beyond hope of restoration) -- if you have people on your team who are playing as medics (and you almost certainly will), they can use a syringe to revive you and then give you health packs. (I don't remember which of these resources are limited and which run off a little recharging timer.)

IMO the best is Gears of War & COD. the worst is BF:BC, having to use the health respirator every 10 seconds is irritating :Porb_03_2006I have to say, I personally thought that Bad Company's health system was an interesting combination of a "health recharge" (since you don't have to seek out health kits in order to restore your health) and a standard, depleting, relies-on-health-kits system.
Hmm, the best I've seen is from Chronicles of Riddick. The worst would be GRAW or Resistance.Lotus-EdgeI'm not familiar with Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter's health system. Regarding Resistance, I thought Butcher Bay and Resistance were fairly similar, as far as the regenerating mini-health bars went -- or am/was I wrong?

My personal favorite health system is on a game I played briefly some time ago and cannot recall the name to save my life. It was live-action fantasy, that much I remember, and everyone had a very gradual health/mana regeneration unless they were taking damage. (The regeneration also improved if you sat down) The points restored weren't usually enough to make much difference unless you were a heavily armored fighter class taking on 1-3 monsters at a time, but there were also potions and healers. Now before you try to tell me I just perfecctly described "Solstice" or anything from Outspark, this game is even older and Solstice's graphics are more sophisticated (and in Solstice you're almost FORCED to use the sit down method to get anywhere).
My least favoite was GRAW. To me it seemed getting noticed meant instant death no matter what the settings were on. (My luck with FPS games has been know to be an epic *** hole, but that's way too extreme)

I think regenerating health is good for fast paced shooters. The health systems in games like halo, cod, and gears just make shooter with a set amount of health like unreal tournament 3 feel dated imo.
On the other hand, the health pack systemis great for survival horror to increase the fear. How scary would it be if your health just regenerated while you ran from that necromorph? Btw, I think it's great how dead space has no HUD whatsoever.
Best: Gears of War
Worst: Unreal Tournament 3

So making people harder to kill takes the challenge out of the game? That sounds like "lowering all the accuracy on guns takes the challenge out of the game". It just doesn't seem to make sense to me... I think it depends. If the game is a class/team oriented game than i find non regenerating health to be a very good way to go (TF2 did this and other PC games did too... i know they arn't 360 but oh well). But for shooters that try and make you a one man army... Halo... than i can see why and like it. Halo 1 was not bad by all means with a regen shield and health bar. But i wouldn't say making it regen only made it worse by any means.
Any game with regenerating health like Halo, Call of Duty, Gears of War etc.. have the worst health system because it takes all the challenge out of the game.Darkslayer16
