Europa Universalis IV: Dharma Icon
Mixed bag, still quite fun
by Cristi P., Romania - Oct 3rd 2018

(Note that I've sunk 1000+ hours into EU4 so far, and have nearly all DLCs anyway, buying this one was a no-brainer)

If you've played the game for as long as I have, an update like this is very much welcome to keep things fresh and try to do another run, with a fresh new nation. In my case, I started as the Timurids, forming the Mughal Empire (which seem to have been massively buffed), and having a lot of fun with it (the Mughals' national ideas & culture assimilation bonuses are amazing).

The most welcome change is probably removing the minimum land requirements from estates, which made previous world conquests that much more tedious (though I believe this is included in the free patch that went with the release as well).

The new custom government reforms are also quite interesting, but it keeps getting harder to advance down this path the more you go through with your world conquest (as reform progress is tied to average autonomy). Going over the maximum number of states now gives you yearly corruption, which sounds kind of terrible, but realistically it's only an extra money sink to root out corruption. Makes the game mildly more challenging in certain scenarios. Not a fan of the rework to religious conversion (now only working in states), but I typically play with humanist ideas anyway, and I think they've rolled it back a notch in the newer 1.27 free patch.

Definitely read the full patch notes/development diaries if you're interested in the full details on what changes before you buy. This is probably the best time to buy the DLC too, as they supposedly fixed a bunch of the bugs introduced from 1.26 in 1.27. Maybe wait for a sale though, 10 dollars (or euros) feels like the sweet spot for the amount of content provided.

Total War: WARHAMMER Icon
Poor performance, but 10/10 game
by Grant Higgins, USA - Oct 2nd 2018

The campaign map runs at 2FPS, if that. It makes it almost unplayable, but the battles run just fine. Incredible game, but make sure your computer can run it

BioShock 2 Icon
Nice Bioschock Saga
by Fanatiko 2.0, Germany - Oct 2nd 2018

May be you can think is more of the same, but it is really a nice Bioschock sequel. Great graphics, better soundtrack and a good gameplay; better if you get it with discount though.

Hearts of Iron IV: Cadet Edition Icon
Feels unfinished
by Kategorize, Sweden - Oct 2nd 2018

As with many Paradox games, the base game needs a few expansions before really shining.

Higher difficulty
by Albert G.2, Spain - Oct 1st 2018

This DLC is great because it adds an additional layer to your Council. You no longer have to select your council depending only on their intrigue, learning, stewardship... But rather their personality, opinion of you, and how much of a threat they are inside your lands. Also, some ruler decision have to be aproved by the Council, which makes it much more interesting and increases the difficulty level.

Crusader Kings II: Charlemagne Icon
I expected more
by Albert G.2, Spain - Oct 1st 2018

The DLC is okay because you can start at an earlier date and also adds the option to create custom kingdoms. However, I don't think it adds that much concerning options or gameplay.

Complete
by Albert G.2, Spain - Oct 1st 2018

Its a really complete bundle. Be aware though that it does not include all the DLC or expansions, however, it is really worth it if you can buy it while at sale.

Surviving Mars - First Colony Edition Icon
Good game, authentic mixed with fun
by bills6693, United Kingdom - Oct 1st 2018

The game can be split into 2 parts - preparing you colony and bringing your humans. With a semi-random order of techs, varied terrain and resource distributions and different 'mysteries' each playthrough can present a somewhat different experience.

Although not 'realistic', the simulation is fun and makes for good gameplay, and the devs have already shown they are listening to feedback and have updated the game accordingly with requested features.
