    New York Underground is the first premium DLC for The Division and it's very good and funny to play. Good job Massive with the new incursion too.

    Underground proves that Massive Entertainment can improve The Division as it needs to do.

    All things considered, Underground is a true evolution of the MMO, provided those who had a passing interest in it can be bothered jumping back in.

    The Division: Underground introduces a randomly generated Diablo 3 rift-like system bringing a ton of PVE goodness to a struggling end game and delivers initial excitement and gameplay with ease. Unfortunately the repetitive nature of the missions as well as the consistent reuse of environments means that whilst this package brings something fantastic for players (PVE focused ones especially) after a solid few hours, there is nothing new to see.

    Those who do pick up Underground will also find a new way to play. The core mechanics and bullet sponge enemies haven't changed, but the option to engage in short bursts of customizable, cooperative gameplay provides a hugely welcome alternative to simply replaying story missions or struggling through the Dark Zone.

    Perhaps season passes have jaded me after all these years, but this is exactly the kind of filler DLC that pads out most season passes. It doesn’t change much, doesn’t add much, doesn’t take any risks. There is a familiar fun in the arcade sensibilities of the Directives, but the novelty doesn’t last very long. 'The Underground' is worth trying out if you’ve committed to a pass, but certainly not worth buying on its own.

    Not a waste of money and time, not enough to entice players to invest another 50-100 hours of playtime into Ubisoft's almost-open-worldNot a waste of money and time, not enough to entice players to invest another 50-100 hours of playtime into Ubisoft's almost-open-world shooter. The Division's Underground DLC is a rather anemic offering of new content for $15. Players that have been following Ubisoft's plagued third person shooter might be tricked into thinking that Underground brings forth several new gear sets, tweaks along with a new Incursion and Underground "dungeon" content, yet the DLC really only adds a couple of those things as the 1.3 patch was also deployed alongside the release for Xbox One and PC. The Underground variant has some interesting elements to it, which include an independent dungeon progression system and a variable level builder that assembles a new version of the subway tunnels that you'll move through every time. The biggest problem here is that there's only a handful of rooms available and the scenery rarely changes. In fact, the coolest part of the Underground is the starter mission which has players raiding an underground rave scene filled with Cleaners. Also, this DLC fails to progress the story in any meaningful way - instead of expanding on the obviously-deeper plot that was rolled out in the core game Ubisoft Massive completely miss the opportunity to add more shape to the game. Instead you will pave a trail of dead bodies for one thing: loot. There is no other motivator here. The Dark Zone also remains an impossibly-hard area that even 4-man groups that are well geared will get torches in with one misstep. For all the potential The Division had, Ubisoft Massive have failed time and time again to right the ship and fix the game's numerous code errors. Glitches and broken gameplay run rampant still, though there are signs that the problems are beginning to lessen. Still, the fact that this game was delayed so many times is a great show of how under-talented the teams that built The Division are. The PC variant of The Division has been gouged of its online community as a result and players constantly voice their frustration with the game on consoles. It will be a miracle if this game makes it to its second DLC before everyone moves on to greener pastures - something that is almost guaranteed given the 2016 fall/winter games lineup that is sure to produce at least one mega shooter.
