Possible Soul Reaver Reboot:

hopelessly optimistic
but damn, his games are seriously all puzzles, all the time. And they're not fun puzzles, either. Defiance was basically playing through the same two or three puzzles forever until you get tired of them, and I didn't like that.

You're right, I'd forgotten that. All those elemental temples were confusing, they all looked the same. Still not as bad as Soul Reaver 2 where you went through whole chunks of the game world over and over again because of time travel and plain old backtracking.

I guess I would be okay with this if they were rebooting the series, but if this is just going to be the one game, then, just, ugh.

"Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about."
Raziel... well, the whole Spectral Realm thing was cool, and always has been, but damn, his games are seriously all puzzles, all the time. And they're not fun puzzles, either. Defiance was basically playing through the same two or three puzzles forever until you get tired of them, and I didn't like that.

Funny, in Defiance I precisely regretted the lack of puzzles. Or complex ones at least (cause "press X to change the color of a sphere" is not exactly what I call a puzzle). And it's true that the forges all looked identical... that's one point where I prefered Soul Reaver 2. But, well, visiting forges was pretty much the only thing to do in SR2 >___<

I'd say each SR game has its crippling flaw: 1 had the tedious Block Puzzles, 2 had the No Sidepaths, No Exploration, No Freedom issue and Defiance had the lack of puzzles, especially plane-shifting puzzles. A game taht would combine the Metroid Vania aspect of the first, the puzzles of the second and the combat of Defiance (updated a bit of course) would be pretty awesome.

Flippé de participer à ce grand souper, je veux juste m'occuper de taper mon propre tempo.

Your Worth is 50 Yen!
A straight Metroidvania with DMC-style gameplay set in the LOK universe would make me orgasm. Hard.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
