There is a way to switch to 3rd person.

It actually looks good, but it's disorienting to see it over the other shoulder. It looks backwards.

Every Unreal Engine game can be played in either perspective, but 3rd person is generally not flattering as the player doesn't usually make very many distinct actions. With Unreal Engine 1 it was really bad, which is why mirrors in Deus Ex might not have been the best idea. But it looks pretty good.

If there's no in-game option to do it, it's gotta be done in the console, which means PC version only. For certain roof-hopping scenarios (e.g. submachine gun collection, I think it is) it would be great to have.

I would love 3rd person on the console. As for being over the right shoulder, why is that disorienting? Gears of War is over that shoulder (and also uses Unreal 3). What game looks over the left? I can't think of a single one. It's part of the right-hander's conspiracy :) I'm left handed

Well most third-person games are over the head or over the left, or at least so I thought. Never paid attention to it, I guess. But the Borderlands third-person mode just looks *off*.
