@kaziklu_bey: For one the amount of bugs there were in the previous version has highly decreased to a bare minimum. There are way more new things in this including the new Cannonball launcher and much more. Settlements can be made and created at just about any given time. I have yet to experience any issues with my Companions including Piper. And the enemies you face are more realistic than a simple upgrade. You no longer use points but only upgrade your perks which makes the game way more challenging and more thought to the plan of attack for your character. There are also simple notes to help you throughout building the settlements. Certain perks will more than easily grant you access to the things you need. The enemies also move in more of a higher number in packs and move differently than the previous game. Ghouls will simple launch themselves at you and the glow ones revive those already dead. Certain rare weapons can also be granted early including the famous Junk Jet in which I now possess. Time, patience, and more fun. Definitely brings a tougher fight. One simple nuke on you will also kill you instantly like the real thing.
