Stellaris
 – 

Very, very good

I wasn't a huge fan of Stellaris when it initially launched, but after all the patches and added DLC, I can say it ranks up there with EU4 and CK2 (although in my personal opinion it's not as good as either of those). Definitely a must buy if you like Paradox style strategy games and want something a little easier and with more lasers!

Imperator: Rome

A bare bones disgrace

Well, what did we expect? A full game from Paradox at launch? Nah. I didn't. But I didn't expect to get such a lifeless, boring game where every country feels the same and there's literally no challenge. They boasted it for having elements of CK2 and EU4. Well, they basically took just the bare minimum from both to give it the comparison. I find myself not caring about characters (something I'd never do in CK2), and I find the combat to be super simplistic and boring (something I never have a problem with in EU4 or CK2). Yes, with DLC and patches this could become fun. But seriously. What a letdown.
