Stellaris
 – 

OK if you like the genre

Nice empire customisation, great exploration in early game, gets bogged down in mid game. Poor combat, all games seem samey after a while

Age of Wonders III Collection

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - Obsidian Edition
 – 

Classic fantasy isometric RPG

A must if you like classic RPGs like Baldur's Gate. Setting and mechanics improved compared to PoE 1. Good story (the political part, the souls/gods plot is so-so), interesting setting and companions. Very nice graphics. Combat is OK with some increased difficulty mods, takes some time to get used to (I played the RTwP mode).

Stellaris: Federations
 – 

Most of this was given for free in patch

If you look purely at what this DLC alone adds, it seems a bit lackluster. That is only because most of the features for this DLC were added for free in the base game in a patch. The DLC itself only expands on what you cando with federations, adds a bunch of origins and some megastructures and juggernauts that are mobile shipyards.

Stellaris: Nemesis
 – 

Needs a bit more time to cook

At the time of this review, Ive come to the conclusion the devs still need to adjust and rebalance the things this DLC adds. Once again, do note that a lot of the content and new features are added in a free patch to the base game. The DLC expands on those new features.
As for the main things the DLC adds:
- Espionage (without DLC you get bare minimum). Even with DLC I honestly haven't used much and think needs more work. It costs too much resources for how little you can gain from doing it.
- A new victory condition by becoming a crisis yourself.
- Expands the Galactic Community system a bit.

Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI: Platinum Edition
 – 

Deeper, richer Civ

Lots of people tend to prefer Civ V to Civ VI so I was pretty skeptical. But grabbing the platinum edition, which includes all DLC except the freedom pass, was absolutely worth it. I LOVE the addition of districts. It adds a new strategic dynamic to the formula and allows your cities to grow in new, unexpected ways.

The climate effects of droughts, volcanos, floods, etc also bring interesting effects and decision-making. And I love the diplomatic additions like sanctioning certain leaders or working together for Olympic Games.

I don't know if I'd recommend the base game but the platinum edition is a no-brainer for any Civ fan looking to jump into the latest iteration.

Imperator: Rome Deluxe Edition
 – 

Fun

I've been having a blast playing this. 40+ hours in and I'm still learning and improving. There are some small things that annoy you here and there but overall it's a lot of fun. Maybe one of these days I'll actually play as Rome.

Stellaris: Nemesis
 – 

Finally, espionage but not as rich as I'd like

The latest Stellaris DLC brought a free update with big changes, which isn't new if you've played the game since it first launched. That 1.0 version is a completely different game compared to what we have now.

Lots of people are so unhappy with the population changes for Stellaris 3.0 that they're review bombing this Nemesis DLC unnecessarily, so it can be hard to get an accurate picture.

The espionage addition is really great to see, and adds interesting layers to first contact and gaining intel on other empires, which is great. However, the actual process is very lean and lacks some of the depth you might expect from, say Crusader Kings. It definitely feels like a first pass at espionage, and hopefully updates down the road can add more meat to the meager bones.

Imperator: Rome - Heirs of Alexander Content Pack
 – 

More fun

Specific mission trees for the successor states gives you a sense of purpose and helps you to create a certain narrative in your game. I didn't think much of the wonder builder at first but they add another fun element to think about. I thought it would be end game stuff but you can accumulate a lot of money pretty quickly as some states.

Crusader Kings II: The Reaper's Due Content Pack
 – 

SO MUCH DLC

The amount of dlc's for this game makes your head spin. These content packs are strictly speaking unnecessary but still essential if you know what I mean.

Crusader Kings II: Sword of Islam

Alhamdulillah!

Allows you to play as a Muslim. World domination would've been mine if it hadn't been for those blasted meddling Christians and their dog!

Crusader Kings II: Way of Life

One of the better ones

Adds a lot of variety with the different focuses. Increases the roleplay aspect of the game.

Crusader Kings II: Conclave Content Pack

Sure

"Content packs" really should've been part of the actual dlc but whatever. Worth it for the detail oriented among us.

Crusader Kings II: Horse Lords

My kingdom for a horse!

Allows you to play as nomads. You can do some fun stuff with them like turning all of the middle east into Nestorian true believers.

Airport Madness 3D: Volume 2
 – 

Mah planes!

A casual Air Traffic Control game. Easy to get into. Very niche genre. You already know if you'll like it or not if you're even remotely interested. Developed by a small and passionate team of actual atc's.

Best CK2 dlc

Creating your own religion is a lot of fun. (Which is why they kept it in CK3)
