Fuck this shit. It's not S U R V I V A L if your damn health regenerates, dumbasses!
Umm I do believe someone said that even the devs don't consider the genre survival horror anymore. How could they? In re4 you got fucking loot for killing folks. If that didn't kill yer optimism about survival horror (not saying it didn't) neither should regenerating health. Just saying.
Having played this game for 5 hours now I wouldn't worry too much about regenerating health. Its not like COD where you hide behind cover. Your stuck on the ground with zombies swarming all over you in some cases. If you revive you can only take one more hit and your melee attacks (which are very important in this game) don't work.
I'm also not in a rush to get this game but I'm still going to buy it. I'll probably wait until they finish releasing all of the dlc and see if they put it all on one disc like the gold edition of number 5. I didn't notice any health regeneration in the demo. I don't think it will bother me that much.
Regardless of the health regeneration, the game is still badass!
A thing I've noticed about the regenerating health is that if you reached a cutscene, no matter where yer health is, it'll be restored. Mayhaps it's because I'm playing on easy, but I've noticed it a few times.
