I missed seeing this incarnation live and really my favourite eras were with Dio and Tony Martin (this material is very underrated IMHO). But there is no question that some of the older, Ozzy-era material is just damn good. My favourite album from that era is Sabotage closely followed by Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, but my opinion is heavily tainted by the production of the early albums which simply doesn't do it for me. Some of the performances of those songs live with Ozzy on eg. Reunion or Past Lives I vastly prefer. War Pigs, Iron Man, Into The Void... lots more and it is classic stuff.

That legacy is going to be very difficult to live up to, which is one problem; and I too hope as another poster does, the material won't be as uniformly "sludgey" as I agree the H&H album was (much as I like some of those songs, esp. Bible Black which I thought phenomenal). But with all this history, I can't help but be excited by the possibility that this is going to be very cool.
