I'm not sure if it's a glitch, or a miserable way to add some challenge, but I noticed a couple of times in the game, while getting to a challenging section, with full health, I would die, but instead of having full health, I would have like 1/2 of my health bar.
This happened plenty of times, namely after 3 deaths vs. the Greyons(sp?) and the wraith armored Cyclops fights.
Yeah I ranted about this on one of my threads, I have no idea if it was intended, but that's some serious BS, I got through those parts though so its all good.
I've had that happened to me too. It's freaking frustrating me. -_-
Also, you don't recover health after you die a couple times. It's been bothering me a lot because i'm trying to beat the game in God Mode. So every time i fight against monster, they leave me with little health. Then for my next fight, i die in one hit... Freaking sucks...
