It’s better to be in 1st, than 3rd


You gotta love the PC crowd, they’re always looking to manipulate games in one fashion or another. One of the latest games to go under the knife is Mirror’s Edge. Apparently, it’s possible to force the game into a 3rd person mode, although I’m not sure why anyone would want to.

The animations are hilariously bad, and the controls just look unwieldy with the camera dropped back. There’s a good reason for that, however: the game was designed to play in 1st person, naturally. Why should EA waste time on animations nobody will ever see?

I suppose it’s a neat mod, even if completely pointless.

    That’s really funny. Obviously the game wasn’t meant to be played this way so they didn’t animate it correctly.

    Even if the animation was spot on, I think this video proves to me that they made the right decision to go with 1st person view. The game would not have been the same in 3rd.
