Sin War Trilogy Shortcomings Finished reading the Diablo Sin War Trilogy and was disappointed to say the least. Felt it had more then a few major shortcomings that did not fit well with the tone previously set for the Diablo story. Would like to hear fellow readings thoughts on the books. The Diablo lore has always been steeped in mystery. Both games give you a solid foundation of the storyline, but only explain so much leaving that bit of mystery to let the player and reader wonder about. This I feel is one of the most intriguing things about the game and books. This trilogy seemed to try to explain everything about Diablo, a lot more then I ever cared to know, and has removed a lot of the mystery to the storyline. I felt they went overboard with explaining the creation of Sanctuary, Humans, and personally the World Stone. While those add to the base storyline I felt a lot of it was unnecessary. At the end of LOD the discovery and destruction of the world stone was one of the biggest hangs and I felt its purpose should not of been brought fully to light until D3. Sadly much of the mystery has been taken out of the Diablo story I feel. Another problem I had was the style which the books were written. Frankly it was just too anime and "DBZ" stiled for me. Looking back at the other books and storyline, Sanctuary's most powerful heroes/villains "Bartuc (Warlord of Blood), his brother, main characters from previous books, D1 & D2's main player characters, and other key characters" they all had their limits, all specialized in some specific talent and were in no way infallible. Uldyssian however seemed to have no limits. Even going as far as resurrecting himself. How many times was he able to do "the impossible"? At the end it would not have surprised me if Uldyssian would of been able to defeat all of Hell and Heaven at once. Some fights were written in a mirror image of DBZ battles. His brother, which still is a bit overpowered at least was bound to a style of magic, guidelines, and a few limitations. He even found the limit of his power and abilities which I feel is key to any "heros" development. Personally it got to a point where the story just got boring, because there was nothing left that Uldyssian or his followers could do to surprise the reader. *Spoiler* The ending of Uldyssian's transition to "godhood" was hardly a shock and only capped my feelings on the matter. Lastly the author did not follow at all to how the basis of the Sin War previously was stated. There was no mention of Bartuc or his brother who were key characters of the Sin War, no mention of Izual, past artifacts, and the one point that they did embellish on "Inarius' and his followers capture and transformation by Mephisto which later creates the Overlords in D1 and D2" Was shortened to only the mention in the last chapter and no description of his actual torture. Overall while the first book was good and entertaining overall, the trilogy was a disappointment and considering the fact that these books actually shaped Diablo lore, while the others were merely stories that fit within the storyline at some point, am greatly disappointed. To add to the disappointment was the fact that these were written by a fantastic author who's my expectations for were much higher. Agree? Dissigear? Discuss.
