Cities: Skylines - Sunset Harbor
 – 

A good way to round out an otherwise complete game

If you like Cities: Skylines or have most of the other DLC, this is a good one to pick up on sale.

It goes on sale too frequently to justify paying full price. It adds plenty of new content, but few game-changing mechanical systems.

Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor
 – 

More flavor than mechanics

The best parts of this DLC are the flavor and mission trees for the minor European nations it adds, as well as the three new music tracks (which are some of my favorites in the entire soundtrack).

The mechanical additions - equipment conversion and licensing and Reichkommisariats - aren't as impactful as the mechanics other HOI4 DLCs add.

If you like HOI4 and have most or all the other DLC you're interested in, it might make sense to buy this one on sale.

Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger
 – 

Good DLC

This is a good DLC but, counterintuitively, its most enjoyable features are for Japan, not China. The Chinese content is good, albeit tedious, as other reviewers have said. As long as you expect the DLC to make China a deeper experience, but only a modestly more fun one, you won't be disappointed.

Obligatory disclaimer to only buy older Paradox DLC on sale.
