Europa Universalis IV: Art of War Icon
Must have expansion
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

One of the most useful expansions imo. A lot of the features probably should have been included in the base game though.

Europa Universalis IV: Rights of Man Collection Icon
CK2/Vic2 meet EU4
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Having consorts and ruler personalities starts to make this feel a little like Crusader Kings.

I'd prefer if the great powers could be a little more dynamic. Instead of a hard-coded 8, a variable number would be more realistic imo. Alternatively, adding in secondary powers like Vic2 had would have added some more depth.

Stellaris Icon
Not bad
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

It lacks the depth of other paradox games and feels more like a 4X game than grand strategy. However, it's still developing so that will likely improve.

Europa Universalis IV: Catholic League Unit Pack Icon
Adds some flavor
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Adds a bit of flavor if you play in Europe a lot. Not a lot, but the price is good.

Europa Universalis IV Conquest Collection Icon
Great game!
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Very addicting with lots of replay value.

Getting all the DLC can be a tad expensive, so best to wait till it's on sale.

Stellaris: Plantoids Species Pack Icon
Adds a little flavor, but could be cheaper
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Only worth it on sale imo. More of a niche item.

Europa Universalis IV: Wealth of Nations Icon
Improves the trade game
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Adds more depth to the trade aspects of the game.

The only issue with the canal projects is that by the time you can afford them the game is almost over. Not sure why there's no achievements for them.

Europa Universalis IV: El Dorado Collection Icon
More than just South America improvements
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

The treaty mechanics really improve the colonization game. It cuts down on the bordergore of colonies and gives incentive to make colonies in a region to get the treaty.

The exploration missions really cut down on micromanaging your exploration. No more "oops, my explorer died of attrition at sea cause I was too busy running a war".
