Voyeuristic hackers have undone its raison d'être and transformed the PC version of Mirror's Edge into the third-person parkour-em-up that could have been. Mind you, the one that could have been would have featured animation cognizant of the external viewpoint, and not just movements fit for first-person glimpses. It must have been a harrowing experience for those who expected to see Faith's nimble movements and instead received the lifeless posterior of a city-traversing robot.

You'll find instructions on how to coax the camera out of Faith's head at the On Mirror's Edge forums, and a video demonstrating the amusing trickery after the break. Mind the big spoilers after the 3:10 mark.

I lol'd when he threw her off the roof and she was as stiff as a board lol. I can't watch any more of the video because I just beat that level and haven't played it since

Wow its not as impressive in third person lol, but saying that Im surprised they bothered to render her entire body, even the parts you never see.

Yeah, you only ever see her arms and legs, and maybe a bit of the front of her body at the most.
