Would you classify SotC as an Action/Adventure game or more of a Puzzle game?

Or maybe some combination thereof? Or would you classify as it as something else, like Platformer?

It's an Action/Adventure game. You do have to figure out how to defeat your enemies but I don't consider it puzzle type gameplay.

I had a roommate who swore it was a puzzle game. He said just cus it's not on a board like tetris or intelligent qube doesn't mean it's not a puzzle game. He argues the object of the game is to navigate the enviorment to get to the enemies then solve the puzzle on how to defeat them. He says the action/adventure elements are primarily cosmetic.

I get his point. Not sure if I'm convinced.

Action/adventure obviously. And to be fair, I could make the same type of 'puzzle solving' argument that your friend has for, say, something like the license challenges in the Gran Turismo series of games.

If great movies are a bright center to the Universe, then The Force Awakens is on the planet that it's farthest from.
