"Put the grimoire in the game" (Some spoilers) (Criticism)

They just about nailed it, in my opinion.

I actually was literally mostly just asking for a grimoire reader through the game. But they’ve also done a great job with the Dreaming City and contextualizing the raid and the missions as the curse progresses.

I’d much rather read the lore entries than see them tell the complete story of Uldren in the game. At a certain point, the grimoire is much more satisfying than a story they could reesonably pull off through the in-game story telling. I think they’ve hit a great middle ground.

That said, sure, there’s still more work to do. Why no cutscene even introducing the Drifter to set him up, and make me even care to start digging into his lore entries. They just put him in the Tower with no indication of who he his, where he’s been, what his deal is. His story is fascinating, but I do think they should lead you to it a bit better.
