Stellaris: MegaCorp
 – 

Space capitalism

Corporate authority is a great addition for governments, making the game even more diverse. The added megastructures are also stunning, upgrading the already fabulous experience of megastructures. The ecumenopoli, slave trade and caravaneers add depth to the galaxy. Still, feels like space capitalism could have been better implemented, since corporate empires still largely develop in the same way non-corporates do.

Stellaris: Apocalypse
 – 

A grand fleet

Titans and colossi add a grand feel to the fleets they accompany. The new marauder empires grant a new challenge on the galaxy map. Unity ambitions are a great way to make use of lategame unity gains. New mechanics and new tactics, all implemented in a great way

Stellaris: Federations
 – 

Space UN

Great addition to the politics of Stellaris. The mechanics in federations open up a a range of possibilities for diplomatic players and add interesting twists through the use of your diplomatic weight in the galactic community. All in all, a must have.

Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack
 – 

A great story for a grand strategy

The content and mechanics added with this DLC is arguably the most immersive of all. The unique stories, special relics and the sheer ingenuity in the crafting of the narrative for the precursors and dig sites are a testament to the work put in making the galaxy seem vast and interesting.

Stellaris: Leviathans Story Pack
 – 

Monsters in space - old but gold

Battles with the leviathans and rewards to be gained add a special feel in a usually politically dominated atmosphere of a strategy game. Being a space monster hunter adds a witchery element in your space adventure and makes it all the more engaging. Still, more of these would have been preferable since they become repeatable soon enough and their rewards are more used for bragging rights and self-satisfaction than actual in-game (notable) benefit.

Stellaris
 – 

Engaging and replayable

Worth to put effort in it. Makes you think about long term choices and offers a variety of viable playstyles which make the experience unique for each playthrough. It is a little barren without DLCs, but still enough to offer a great time.

Stellaris: Utopia
 – 

Worthwhile expansion

Megastructures and habitats offer a special and unique experience which largely differs from the usual planet-based resource production and development. The new ascension perks allow players to explore some of the most popular concepts in sci-fi: bioengineering and cybernetic augmentation, as well as psychic evolution. Indoctrination mechanics makes interacting with primitive civilizations more fun, and upgrades to slavery and government open up more opportunities for specialized empires with immersive features. In conclusion, essential if you want a more atmospheric galaxy.

Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn Story Pack
 – 

I like Robot

Putting playable robots in a space strategy already sounds like a great idea. Stellaris implemented it in an excellent way, making the synth gameplay fun and memorable by introducing a brand new view on diplomacy and empire management in synth playthroughs. Robotic uprising also add interesting choices for materialist empires which also increases the game complexity making it an even grander strategic masterpiece.

Stellaris: Distant Stars Story Pack
 – 

A more lively galaxy

Adds a lot of flavor to exploration, but also feels like it could have put more effort in creating more numerable unique interactions, which can become repeatable after multiple playthroughs. Still, this DLC helps in making the galaxy a more interesting and enjoyable place, especially with the unique leviathan-like creatures.
