Third Person / First Person?
OMD2 looks great, I've been intersted in it since it came out, but I can't play third-person games - after a few minutes I feel dizzy and get bad headaches. First person games are OK - I play Dungeon Defenders in First Person with no problems (this is billed as a third-person shooter but the player actually has a choice).
So I checked on some youtube vids and reviews, and a few of them say that OMD2 is a first-person shooter (through the eyes view), but their actual videos only show play in the third person (behind view). I am beginning to suspect that they don't know the difference between third and first person.
Can you guys confirm this for me one way or the other please?

Yeh it's 3rd-person only, no zoomability to 1st person.

Oddly enough I can see how someone could get confused, it's a very 1st-personish 3rd-person. Most times I forget I'm in 3rd person at all.

I don't know how to describe it other than compared to like Assassin's Creed or the new Hitman - those "feel" 3rd person in a consoley kinda way. OMD2 feels more like a FPS even tho you're in 3rd person.

Thanks Cougar, sadly I'll have to give this a miss. Looking forward to OMD3 though, with first+third person play, and two more characters to make it 4 player coop! Perhaps that should be OMD4, OMD3 would logically feature 3 players.
