Stellaris: Utopia
 – 

Another excellent expansion

If you're thinking which DLCs to get - and there are many - I suggest you put this one on the shortlist. It adds a lot of nice features to build your empire, and overhauls a lot of the planetary mechanics. Mega-structures are pretty hard to achieve though, be warned!

Stellaris: Distant Stars Story Pack
 – 

Once you open Pandora's L-gate...

Three words: brutal boss fights. I warned you... :)

Ooof, this is one of those expansions that is heavier on the challenge side than the reward. Especially since you can sick some of these beasties on the unsuspecting galaxy way before you're ready to fight them. Be careful! Par for the course are also some great bits of lore to really flesh out the world. Just remember, start building those attack ships. A lot of attack ships... ;)

Endless Space 2
 – 

Looks fantastic, with engaging mechanics

The strong points of this game are the looks, and the mechanics. Everything is polished and well thought out on the UI, and the menu navigation is genius! Lets you focus on the gameplay decisions instead of getting a headache by trapping you in the tenth subscreen you visited just to see your resources. The turns based mechanics and limited moves really makes you think about strategic decisions, and makes it all the sweeter when you succeed!

Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack
 – 

Makes the universe all the more colorful

This one is a great little expansion to the Stellaris universe. The archeological digs are fun, if a little tedious, but they yield engaging bits of storytelling, and possibly some cool artifacts you can use to your advantage.

Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit
 – 

Much needed transport options you could only get in mods before

It feels like the developers took a look at what the community was doing for themselves, and then lifted a bunch of ideas directly into the game. This is not necessarily a bad thing, support for these features is probably better this way.

Anyway, you get much needed options and controls to influence the transport network of your city. The ability to fine tune is always welcome, and the public transportation side gets a lot of new options. You get all kinds of road options as well, but the car AI is still not the best. Clever road and intersection planning is a must, since putting down some avenues is useless if the AI can't use all the lanes properly.

Cities: Skylines - Industries
 – 

Bordering on micromanagement

I have mixed feelings on the contents of this DLC. On one hand, it adds a whole lot of customization options to industrial zones, but at the same time, growing the districts becomes a manual task instead of just zoning out an area. You have to balance production levels lest your factories run dry of materials, and the UI is a bit cumbersome for that. On the other side, the new zones are a great source of revenue, and it adds a lot of tools to visually and thematically customize your city, if you're into that sort of role playing.

Airport Madness 3D: Volume 2
 – 

Great fun and a challenge at the same time

The concept of the game is pretty simple, but the different levels of traffic, and the eight airports you can pick from allow you to choose your experience. You can have some fun with a small airport, or clutch at your head as plane after plane crashes during rush hour on your six runways... Graphics are decent, but not the main attraction, which is okay for this game. My only gripe is that the UI to control the planes is a little bit clunky and slow with the mouse, so it pays to memorize the keyboard shortcuts.
