Yeah, not sure about the third person cover. I think I might almost prefer full third person game play to switching between first person and third person.

I have nothing against third person if if the controls are done well. I thought Gears of War, while flawed in many ways, had nice fluid controls. Mass Effect 2 worked pretty well.

Obviously, though I would prefer pure first person. No cover, or a less intrusive system. I liked the way Vietcong did it. You just crouched behind a log or something and you were in cover, but when you looked down your sites you popped up a bit. Perfect. They could do something similar for corners. Best of all, because it's first person, there isn't any need to fit your character model's animation to it. Just move the view. It doesn't have to make physical sense as long as it gives the right impression from the first person view.

Anyways, they probably felt like they had to stick a third person element in somewhere so that you could see your character and your outfit and gear and whatever.
