Everytime I see platforming in a first person game, it makes me cringe. It is never fun and almost always turns out to be an annoyance more than anything else. I wonder why developers are still using it.
I personally love it. The original Half-Life and mods had the best first person platforming IMO, could jump around platforms like crazy in that game even if it was a shooter. There were plenty of skill maps to jump around in!
It has to be done right, but I generally have no problem with it. I thought this game needed to have a slightly bigger character model. My experience with other FPS games was that I could jump closer to the edge than in this. Still, the dimensional abilities made the platforming really easy in Quantum Conundrum, and let me pull off some pretty cool moves.
It surprises me that so many people answer "yes" to that. I hate first person platforming. The one exception is Mirror's Edge, but then in that you were a person with arms and legs. In Quantum Conundrum you are a cube with a spring attached to the bottom so that you can jump. The platforming is an annoyance in this game. Should have been removed.
