Featuring some cool aesthetics, whether large set piece environments, neon-lit landscapes, or the reality-altering powers you get to wield, Soul Axiom Rebooted has its merits. A first-person sort of puzzle adventure, you’ll spend the majority of your time wandering through a variety of environments trying to figure out what it is you need to do to proceed. The fact that there’s literally a button you can press at any time to get a waypoint to tell you where to go next is pretty well an acknowledgement that perhaps the level design can be lacking in terms of clarity. A big piece of this problem stems from how large and yet barren its landscapes can be, no doubt tied to the era the original title was released in. If you enjoy puzzles, and can be a bit patient with some warts, there’s an often beautiful world here for you to explore at your own pace. Just be sure to enter into it with your expectations in check or you may be disappointed.
