Mirror's Edge Producer Discusses Third-Person Hack

Matt Leone writes:

"A few weeks ago, the PC community massaged Mirror's Edge to the point that they found a way to play it in third-person. On its own, this "mode" isn't particularly notable -- it's far from the first time we've seen a hack like this, and it looks kind of funny because the developers didn't plan for it.

Because of the debates over whether the game should have been in first- or third-person in the first place, however, I found this particularly notable. It feels like ever since DICE revealed Mirror's Edge, I've been hearing people ask if it would be better in third-person. To me, that always seemed like it would make the game easier to control but less exciting."

The story is too old to be commented.

I seen this yesterday and also watched the video, although it would be more fun to watch the 3rd person side IF animation was done properly, it would never give that thrill of actually being that person. 1st person really gets you into the action more as well as it being something different.

I agree.This game certainly wouldn't be the same in third person.

Besides,i like to kind of imbue my personality into the characters i play,so to speak.

It would be kind of hard with an Asian chick.
First person view for the win.

Still..pretty cool hack tho.
