Third-Person Mirror's Edge

Gamezine.co.uk outlines how you can activate a third-person view in the Windows edition of Mirror's Edge, in case that seems like a more appealing way to experience the acrobatic action in DICE's parkour game. Implementation is as simple as adding a config file line reading "Bindings=(Name="F4",Command="FreeFlightCamera",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)." A video on the YouTube shows the ass-cam in action, describing its limitations. Thanks Mike Martinez.

The game loses a lot of impact in third-person. The platformers that benefit from third-person are the slower-paced, more puzzle oriented ones.

The running animation is a bit broken, but then it also dictates the head bob and full-body dynamics so it's clearly optimised for that. An interesting diversion.

Wow that's wonky. That view really doesn't help the game at all, which I wouldn't expect it to.
