Stellaris: Overlord
 – 

Best Stellaris DLC by far

Honestly this is the best Stellaris DLC by far. The new Vassal mechanics are something that have been missing from a game in a long, long time.

Cities: Skylines
 – 

The best modern citybuilder IMO

Cities Skylines is not Caesar 3, but it's still good. The vanilla game in itself will easily last you for 20-40 hours, but the real timesinker are the mods you can find.

Stellaris: Aquatics Species Pack
 – 

Bul bul

If you think it's just yet another species pack, then you are wrong. It gives you pretty fun origins and the civics which could make you quite OP if played right.

Cities: Skylines - Green Cities
 – 

Pretty much mandatory

I really believe the basic recycling stuff should have been in a base game. But alas, it isn't there, so You have to buy that DLC.

Crusader Kings III: Royal Edition
 – 

If you were fan of CK2, then this game is for you

Right now it is pretty barren compared to the CK2 especially in regards to the number of events, but the vanilla CK3 has all the most important stuff that you needed DLCs for in CK2.

With the recent price increase for CK3 DLCs Royal Edition is the best way to buy them.

Stellaris: Nemesis
 – 

Wasted potential

Let me start it with - this is by far the worst big expansion (so not Story Pack like Synthesis Dawn or Species Pack like Plantoids) that Stellaris has received.

Let me start with Espionage. It is by far the biggest problem strategy games of all kinds have problems with. Either it is completely overpowered and makes the game trivial and unfun or it is complete afterthought and can easily be ignored. With Stellaris it's the latter - there are only 2, maybe 3 useful operations. Getting intel takes some time and some operations does not scale well (arm privateers). But I'm honestly not blaming them.

Next thing we have is Galactic Custodian - sounds nice on paper, but it's basically undercooked premise of Galactic Imperator. Some of the resolutions really should have been swapped with Galactic Council. It doesn't help that the Galactic Community in itself is faced with problems that needs to be adjusted (low amount of resolutions, too many modifiers, same resolutions being voted again and again, long time between sessions etc).

Becoming the Crisis might be only saving point of this expansion.

Honestly the only time I recommend buying this DLC is if you want to play the Crisis and if the DLC itself is on huge sale.

Stellaris: Necroids Species Pack
 – 

Yet another species pack

Necroids in itself is really great species pack. New origin that promotes new gameplay is pretty fun. Origins are also very original and thematic. Also more shipsets is always nice.

Stellaris: Federations
 – 

"I AM THE SENATE"

Federations DLC alongside a 2.6 patch threw a whole new life to Stellaris. The expanded Federations make the universe more divisive: from the Hegemony where Overlord gets the biggest bonuses through Galactic Union (space EU) to Research Cooperatives which ultimate goal is... well research.
On top of that You get Galactic Community, so basically the biggest game-changer since inclusion of mid-game crisis with Khan. There is a lot of words that could be said on the inclusion of Space UN in this game, but one is for sure - it completely changes the whole dynamic of game from early through mid and up to endgame, with resolutions pushing the whole map towards specific ethics and giving bonuses to all empires and breaches providing huge penalties, emergency meetings during crisis times and so on.
And that's not even mentioning Origins and new Megaconstructions! One of the best DLCs to Stellaris.

Stellaris: Lithoids Species Pack
 – 

Between Plantoids and Synthetic Dawn

The title basically sums it up. This DLC gives You yet another species (the more the merrier IMO), but unlike Plantoids, Lithoids have new mechanics - they don't use food, they have higher habitability but on the cost of using minerals and much slower pop reproduction. It's still good, but only buy it after getting every other DLC first, but before Plantoids.

Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack
 – 

The best Story Pack so far

As You know the Stellaris DLCs can be divided into 3 categories: Expansion Packs that feature a lot of new things (Megacorp, Utopia, Apocalypse), Storypacks (Distant Stars, Leviathans, Synthetic Dawn) and cosmetic stuff (Plantoids and Humanoids DLCs), and from Storypacks Ancient Relics is the best one.

Why You may ask? Well, here's the thing: Ancient Relics gives You a lot of content in a early and mid game. Relic Worlds, 2 new precursor civilzations, minor artifacts (which You can use to boost Your research or sell for cash), titular ancient relics... There is a lot of stuff going on, including a lot of stories to fully immerse You in the game. It really is awesome!

Crusader Kings II: The Republic
 – 

3/5 buy it only if You really want

This DLC was one of the first, and it really shows. It's mediocre and You won't probably return to it after You played it once. But it's nice to play, it's something different after all.

Stellaris: MegaCorp
 – 

Space Las Vegas!

Have You ever wanted to play Egalitarian Empire that buys slaves of the market only to give them freedom? Or maybe You wanted to be a Space Scientology that builds temples on the other planets and takes their cash?

Also features Ecumenopolises, new megastructures and Caravaners! It's worth it.

Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn Story Pack
 –

It gives You a new play-style called for Machine Empires that does not require food and instead requires a lot more energy. It's great!

This War of Mine - The Little Ones DLC
 – 

War is terrible
