Stellaris: Necroids Species Pack
 – 

Amazing Art

First of all, the art for this one (specialy the ships) is amazing. The concept is cool as well, and it adds some unique playstyle which is always nice (more diversity is always good). Only sad thing is that they (imho) missed a chance of possible adding a new ascension type as well. But overall, a good DLC for a solid price.

The patch that came with the DLC was also a very much needed patch that improved the AI a lot compared to how it was before this patch.

Hearts of Iron IV: Battle for the Bosporus
 – 

Good flavor for specific nations

If you like playing as the nations that got their own unique faocus trees (Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria) then this is certainly worth your money. The trees are well done and add multiple options for diferent replays with those nations.

But if you normaly only play as the mayor participants of the war, then this DLC will probably add very little for you, that is why I reviewed it with 3 stars since the value of this DLC changes a lot with how (as who) you play the game. So it's more then 3 stars if you plan to play as those nations (specialy multiple times) and less if you are never going to play as them anyway.

Crusader Kings III: Royal Edition
 – 

Just amazing.

Everything in this game just feels 'right', from the amazing 3D art of the characters and the interactions between them, until the UI, which just does what you want it to do in an intuitive way.

I now understand why Paradox took so long developing this game, they delivered a complete game, bigger and more alive then any game they made so far.

Europa Universalis IV: Emperor Content Pack
 – 

Pricy but beautiful

I prefer that they just add the content packs to the DLC, so imho this should just be part of the Emperor DLC... BUT they did add more art then they normaly do and some very high quality art. And, given that it's totaly optional so no one is forced to spend their money on it to get the complete gameplay I guess it's fine.

Europa Universalis IV: Emperor
 – 

The biggest DLC for EU4 so far

This is certainly the biggest DLC made for EU4 so far, it focuses on the core of EU4, Europe, religion, the balance of power, the HRE. Bringing a lot more depth and flavor to those mechanics. Finaly removes some 'buttons for X' (the old estate interactions) and add a more realistic and dynamic system.

So far I'm liking it a lot. Tonight going to start my first multiplayer with some friends, lets see how that goes!

Hearts of Iron IV - La Résistance
 – 

Good DLC

It's a solid DLC, worth the money (specialy on a sale). I had some fun playthroughs with it. Specialy the diferent focus-trees are well done and make it possible to have diferent playthroughs with the same countries. (France / Spain / Portugal)

Stellaris: Federations
 – 

Very solid DLC

Finally federations got a use, before this DLC I used to avoid federations and just conquered everything, now I actualy try to get a federation going because it's finaly worth it. But, all that said, the best thing about this DLC are the origins, they add a lot more choices for your empire on creation, making empires feel more unique.
