Act 1 was mostly good except a few points. Cain's death was pretty weak and he deserved more. Maghda as a character wasn't so bad, but her character style was so out of place. No wonder people called her "butterfly witch". Tyrael becoming a human was interesting, but he was so far from the charismatic and mysterious angel we knew in Diablo II. Despite most people think it was done well, The Butcher as an Act End boss was awful in my opinion. Yes, Diablo 1 Butcher was impressive and horrifying at the same time, but implying there are more "Butcher demons" diminishes that effect. Furthermore, pulling one of them out of thin air and giving him lines like "Meat good, vegetables bad!" was just lame. Making him a boss just for the sake of nostalgia was a bad decision.A cult themed boss would be much better I guess...
Act 2, not so bad. But the whole thing with Emperor Hakan and Belial was sooo obvious. Actually there were much much better and fitting fan theories than what Blizzard did. Belial parts definitely needs a good, not so easy to predict twist. Making us think he IS Hakan and then forcing us to kill him would be a wonderful twist I guess.
Act 3, it had so much potential... But Azmodan mostly ruined it. As a strategic tactician mastermind, should he really talk that much and give away his plans? "Hahaha, look! I am attacking you from below now so you can come and stop me!" I don't know who wrote the dialogues for bosses but making them chatty was a terrible decision. Sometimes less is better. Also, "Sin Hearts" concept was completely out of blue. Blizzard could do much better than this. Focusing more on the siege and expanding the confrontation with Azmodan would be my choice for this Act.
Act IV was mostly okay except 3 points. Diablo teasing you with stupid lines was awful.Diablo in Diablo II had one line of dialogue and it was powerful: "Not even death can save you from me!" And it was enough to strike fear in your heart. "Look Tyrael! Your old lieutenant!" and such were just plain stupid. Other than that, Izual poping out again as a boss without any back story... We did kill him in Diablo II and spoke with his spirit, how did he ended up all demonified and alive? Why is he betraying Angels AGAIN? Those points were never explained, so introducing him as a boss wasn't handled well. Diablo trying to become the Prime Evil was a brilliant idea. But again, it could be done much much better. Why aren't we seeing Diablo's full power? He should had all 7 Evil's powers within him, so why can't we see him using any of them? Merging them as Prime Evil and maybe introducing Tathamet in the final phase of the fight would be incredibly cool.
