GH writes: "One of the best facets of this franchise is the manner in which Riddick can recover from injuries. The game combines a regenerative health mechanic as well as the more traditional health pack system. Riddick has an array of health boxes that make up his life bar and as he takes damage a box begins to dissolve. If a box is fully removed it stays gone until you can find a medical station. That said, If you take damage and can get to cover before the box fully vanishes then it will reappear slowly over time. Taking fire in the open however is the sure way to a quick death as Riddick's black muscle top is not the best way to stop a hail of bullets."
