The game has also received a hefty title update which addresses some of the many technical flaws seen in the original game, and removes some of the more obvious exploits. It's still a shaggy beast though, with jittery animation and visual bugs a constant distraction.
If you have the free code then there's no reason not to give Bloodbath Arena a try, even if all it really adds is a place to quickly grind your way up a few levels. As a paid download, however, it's uninspired stuff. Every game is adding a Horde mode these days, and considered against the competition this is a particularly basic effort.
The Controller Online is more positive, 7.5/10.
Bloodbath Arena seems more like a mode that should have been included with the game (and would have been easier to figure out how to play), rather than as a DLC, but itâ€™s still enjoyable to an extent and for those who prefer survival modes such as Nazi Zombies, will feel right at home here, just donâ€™t expect it to last as long.
Finally, Co-Optimus is offering some impressions, both in video and text form:
Overall, the Bloodbath Arena is a fun addition to Dead Island. If you're still playing the game, you'll definitely want to pick this up. If you haven't touched the game in a while, it might be worth revisiting. It all depends on how much you like zombie stomping. There are also new weapon mods hidden in each arena, which is a nice touch for collectors. The DLC includes 10 more Achievements worth 250 points, or 10 Trophies (7 bronze, 3 silver).
