Any thoughts?

I think AC2's healthbar was the best.

It looked much cooler then the others and it was much easier to deem how much health you had left.

I think the new one is fine, I always wondered why they use the same style of healthbars with a little change.

I have no problem with it. I think the first version was too small towards the end so it might have been hard to know when you're about to die. I like the current one, it's sleek and it doesn't take up a lot of the screen like the AC2 one did.

AC3, we shouldn't have to have our health in boxes. Also what is that last health bar from?

I don't, I brought that up in another HUD thread. This one is my favourite, I liked the integration of the Assassin logo and health bars with the map. It looked clean and sleek. Now we have blobs all over the HUD.

To AC2/BH is horrible. Does not give me the idea of ​​a stylish interface and Sci-fi.

Prefer to AC3 Frontier/Boston.

The crazy thin line underneath most probably.

I guess it doesn't really matter what it looks like considering I just turn it off every time anyway so it's not blocking my view but I do prefer the old AC1 system where you regain health after you leave a fight instead of the buying health from a doctor thing.

I prefer the new one and especially the one used in the Frontier and Boston video. Hope you will be able to choose the transparent ;)

Yes! You can paint it, put hearts or bunnies as decoration, you can even make it to pulse at the music in the background.

i loved the compactness of ACRs

minimalism is best in UIs in my opinion

AC for the most part has incredibly awesome User interfaces. so much so that it served as inspiration when I applied for graphic design school. and helped me get in!

Hahahah poor ACR can't do anything right. I personally don't hate the game as much as most people seem to, but I definately didn't like the health bar. Brotherhoods was nice but I think the new AC3 one is best, favourite being the "thicker" bar.

hahaha I'm the only one to vote for the Revelations health bar! I didn't mind it so whatever...

btw OP- you forgot the health bar in AC2 with the spinning thingies around it >>>

Brotherhood was better actually. AC2 bar was like 1/4 of the screen.

I actually find the AC1 bar really nice, though it does take up a whole lot of space and is less clear as to how much health you actually have.

AC3 does have the best health bar. Nice and simple, nicely integrated with the map, doesn't take up a lot of space. I actually liked the one we saw in the E3 demo aswell as the new one. Not sure which one I like more. The new one just looks bulky for no reason?
