Is it a bad thing if some of us like the puzzles and platforming to break the action up and provide some variety?

no its not but i think games like these should have 60-65% combat and rest puzzles and platforming, Instead of 40% combat and 60% puzzles and platforming.

but they did it nicely in darksiders 1 so hopefully these will be fun puzzles.

If you played castlevania lords of shadow towards the end its all one puzzle room after another, if you give us something else in between than its fine but puzzles after puzzles for a game that is known for combat isn't very smart.
