Borderlands' latest DLC has shown me the combat rhythm I've naturally settled into: the regular back and forth between whittling away at enemies with SMGs before disappearing in a puff of magic, to either slink off and let my shield charge up again, or pop up behind an unfortunate bruiser in order to blast chunks out of their neck with a shotgun. If the Underdome had "merely" been a Horde mode, that may have been fine, but it's a lot more besides. It's a glimpse into the internal machinery of Pandora, a rare chance to understand where you've been, and where you want to go next.

Difficile de donner une note qui puisse véritablement refléter la qualité de cette extension. Palpitante pour les experts dotés de personnages très avancés et capables d'aligner une équipe soudée, elle risque de décevoir les loups solitaires et même les duos de potes habitués à écumer Pandore sans trop se prendre le chou. Terriblement exigeant, l'Underdome de Mad Moxxi n'est peut-être pas aussi indispensable que l'île aux zombies du Dr Ned, mais il mérite tout de même le coup d'oeil.

800 pts les trois arènes et le mode baptême du feu/horde pour Borderlands, ça fait un peu cher. Surtout lorsque l’on regarde ce que nous proposait l’île du Dr Ned pour la même somme. Quoi qu’il en soit, on s’amuse beaucoup dans ces grandes arènes et on se surprend de ne rencontrer aucune résistance pour rentrer dans l’univers farfelu, décalé et unique de Borderlands, qui pour une fois ne propose rien d’original mais plutôt un petit en-cas, à consommer sans modération. Surtout que cet en-cas dispose de deux petites carottes non-négligeables : 2 points de compétence supplémentaires. Et là, c’est le drame.

And that pretty well sums up the target demographic of Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot: those who have reached the level cap. If you and your buddies are looking to get the band of mercenaries back together, Mad Moxxi's relentless combat will fit the bill, and the skill points are a nice reward for your troubles. But the Underdome strips away a lot of the elements that make Borderlands so much fun, so this DLC may not scratch your itchy trigger finger. You don't gain experience or proficiency, the scenery doesn't change, the structure doesn't offer much variety, and there's precious little character or humor. Underdome Riot is a very narrow add-on with very limited appeal, but if you're dying for a heaping helping of pure combat, Mad Moxxi has got your fix.

It seems the developers have forgotten what made Borderlands fun in the first place. Having chosen to remove all the fun of looting and expansive environments to search, they decided to stick you in a familiar looking set of arenas and force you to shoot at wave after wave of generic enemies.
