They have an interesting story, but Lionhead removed any semblance of difficulty from the sequels. The combat simplification felt like it removed depth, for me at least. And what happens if you die? You get back up. It removed any feeling of challenge. Why worry about losing experience when you can just get more? The game doesn't take your abilities away, and there is no shortage of experience opportunities to replenish what you lose.
The series does tell excellent stories. There are some interesting twists, and Albion is a fun place.
