I feel compelled to reply re: "Have you ever played Zelda?" I was thinking specifically of the side-scrolling palaces/bridges/etc in Zelda II where, as I recall, leaping around bridges suspended in midair, jumping over chasms, and crossing collapsing rock-bridge were all common requirements. Maybe Castlevania would have been a better comparison. I was trying to think of an analogy with some other RPG that involves lots of jumping around traps that are difficult to imagine actually existing.

Re: Zelda

Well, U8 was AFAIK known as "Super Mario Avatar" because of the jump & run style.
I played it before the big patch came out that remedied this to some extent but I always thought that U8 had other problems.
In other words: It nearly abandoned everything good which was U7 - not only Britannia.
