This dlc is the Creature Slaughter Dome. In this dome, you are pitted against all beastly enemies in the game forcing you to survive by outsmarting all of them. While not the hardest challenge, this dome was fun to play while I was with friends. I also got this as a pre-order bonus but I would recommend buying it if you just have to get the full Borderlands 2 experience.

The Creature Slaughter Dome is one of the many arenas in Pandora, this time dedicated to the beastly creatures like bullymongs and stalkers among others. While these arenas are good fun for a while with the many waves and increasing difficulty, there really isn't much here besides just shooting many mooks and getting a relatively decent rocket launcher which the main game provides plenty of for each. If you weren't fortunately enough to get the dome as a pre-order bonus or as part of a bundle, it isn't a bad addition, but I'd save my money for one of the actual DLC campaigns first if you haven't tried those yet.

I got this a while ago now on GMG and it's been a nice addition to the gameplay. Not very long, but still it allows you to save your progress halfway through one of the longer (and on later playthroughs, more challenging) parts of the game. Go ahead and get it using GMG's voucher codes :)

This would remind you very much of other arenas you would find around Borderlands 1 and 2. It is essentially Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot from the first game. I have the feeling of being in pretty much any other arena that I have seen in the world already and the only thing that seems to be an incentive to play this is to grab Moxxi's special rocket launcher. If you got it with preorder from Gamestop you got a decent addition to the game, but I feel it is not really $5 worth. $2 or $3 would be better. For most people a little more is fine for them, however as a college student the amount of games I can obtain is pretty low. I love Green Man because of this with their constant sales. If you grab the game with a 25% off code, that will make it a decent price.
The graphics are the same as the standard game. The monsters are pretty much all there. There is little addition to the game with this pack unless you like mindless slaughter. It can be a good place to go for testing weapons and just blowing things up.
The little game extension gives it a hit to the rating and the low, but not quite low enough rating is not going to take away from this, as I am grateful that it did not cost 10-20 dollars like other game makers would do.
My opinion would be to not get this unless you really love long streams of monsters to destroy. The rocket launcher is not worth the $5 and for me, the play is not worth it either.

I heard this was a pre-order bonus on some platforms, in the end it feels a little lacking. It's an arena battle where you fight against the critters gathered from across Pandora. Lots of skags, bullymongs and threshers. Played through it twice, both times with little to no challenge, the end reward for completion was okay, could be good for players who just need one more thing to do in the already fantastic borderlands 2.
