Main problem seems to be pic related for most people.
It reduces magic to something tame and rather boring. His prose aren't particularly fantastic either.

Ignore the medium pic related was posted on. The guy's point encapsulates one of the most common things people dislike about Sanderson's writing.
Sanderson is heavily into magic systems and it shows. Supposedly he even comes up with them first and then tries to make stories in which he gets to use the magic he came up with rather than the other way around. If you feel interested in reading his thoughts on them check out https://www.brandonsanderson.com/sandersons-first-law/
