Granted I've not played through a LOT of the new DLC, but so far I really don't understand all the criticism I've been reading. I'm playing a sneak/guns build, totally weak on unarmed/melee and still really enjoying it. Just about to finish recruiting the 3rd follower. Love the atmosphere. The collar & beeping things hasn't been a real big deal, not annoying as I've read some people post. I've liked the challenge. Really cool areas to explore IMO.
