There aren't many games that have isometric and OTS third person (Dragon Age Origins and NWN2 are two), so I was excited to explore BG3 in third person with the new verticality.
The third person camera is pretty awkward and restrictive though. You can't tilt up. Highlighted prompts appear off the screen. There is no wasd movement when you are zoomed in completely (click to move feels very off for OTS cameras). Even for something as basic as exploration, it's uncomfortable to play. At present, the third person option feels more like a novelty for screenshots.
A tilt option would go a long way towards removing some of that awkwardness, but I think adding a toggle button like what was present in DAO and NWN2 would be very helpful. What this means is that you keep the existing camera with click to move, but you also add a separate fully third person OTS camera with WASD movement . You would click a button to toggle between the two. This way, you can have a polished and playable camera for both settings. While this may seem useless to many people, it doesn't make sense to me include these beautiful skyboxes and zoomed in perspectives if it is gimped and a bit unfinished. Just some feedback. Loving the game.
