I read the Fall of Reach and the Flood.
Haven't picked up the third one yet, but they seem to be just good old sci-fi shootem ups with some zombies thrown in. Enjoyable but not prize winning.
You are not your magic weapon and armor. You are not your spell buffs. You are not how much gold you have, or how many times you've been raised from the dead. When a Big Bad Demon snaps your sword in two, you do not cry because that was your holy avenger. You leap onto its back, climb up to its head, and punch it in the eye, then get a new damn sword off of the next humanoid you headbutt to death.
