I wouldn't really call spreading out and attacking from all sides "cheap tricks", though I agree that all the added monster types are pretty annoying to fight and it makes the DLC feel more like a downgrade in quality than an improvement.
Having more locations to explore is kinda nice, but the problem is that it usually makes me lose money too much, so I'll have to mostly stick with contracts if I don't want to run out of resources. (I admit it might be because I'm too lazy to knife everyone to death to get their gear.)
Yesterday's patch should at least make Alps less of a problem now.
