"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."
