Does the view change depending on which direction you're facing? The camera should "look ahead" to where your dino is looking. So if you're facing downhill you should be able to see ahead of you downhill.
But the downside is that if you are running uphill away from someone downhill, and you want to see he/she behind you, sometimes the hill is steep enough you can't really. This is probably something we'll try to make less of an issue over time by designing maps that aren't as steep.
Thanks for the compliment.
