I have, extensively. The item puzzles are essentially a far more complicated version of the key-and-lock combinations in other games - they're a way to get further into the levels. You spend far more time running, jumping, rolling, and shooting than you do manipulating items. And what about the courier and escort missions (to say nothing of the Death Tower competition) in New Washington? Does the game suddenly become a platformer when you're playing through those?

Whatever floats your boat.

Maybe I was thinking of the far buggier C64 version; it's been a while since I played it. Everything else still applies, though.

So what is it then? A board game? And that's the exact same movement system that Prince of Persia employs.

I suppose that Gods isn't a platformer either because you can't jump vertically?
