I am probably the only one who did not figure this out but... How do I save the game in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver? I found a new portal but when I return to the game I still start from the abyss. And when I approached the first portal nothing happens: I can see the portal that I unlocked but if I try to press A (I am playing it on a PC) nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong?
If you're playing the PC version, and not the emulated PS1 version of the game, you should be able to save in the Escape menu.
