Accept it for what it is.
If you're a history nerd like I am, this game is right up your alley. There's very little platforming, which is highly unlike a Mario game. When I first played through this game in the 90s, I was turned off by it because of the lack of platforming. Though, in retrospect, this is a great game. If you accept it for what it is.
