Hearts of Iron IV - La Résistance
 – 

Very good

Honestly, while I understand some of the negative criticisms of this DLC, I still fundamentally disagree with the negative reviews. This DLC is one of those pieces of DLC that has really good ideas behind it. The implementation however, needs some work. I have already personally modded/fixed some of the issues that I feel the DLC has added. I am relatively sure that balance fixes and superior execution will be implemented in the future. Therefore, this gets a thumbs up for me.

Imperator: Rome Deluxe Edition

The game can be better with some expansions

The game is a rush job, it is not finished. In the settings the volume slider does not work if you click on the slider if you want to make changes you have to save the settings if you just select the setting and close the window it will not remember it. In the interface, you want to build a building but you do not have a list of like you do in EU 4 where it shows you where it is most effective. You want to trade resources to a province you do not see where that province is. The game runs slow on MAC.
What to change? For me: more events. It is so boring now without them. Especialy after EU4. Also two things: I hope that timespan will increase after 30 AD and we will get some Christ easter egg, and I saw it in some pre-release let's play, so maybe it's now updated, but Jewish people crusifing??? More culture apropriate decisions. So stoning for Jewish cultures for example.

Crusader Kings II: Hymns of Revelation
 – 

Best music for the game

Best music pack to date, more like this will be welcome. Adds right atmospheric nature to christian rulers. The chants are beautiful, the instrument accompaniment fitting. As an Orthodox Christian who attends regular western rite liturgies I can tell you this is the real deal.

Great improvements for Britain

Great little improvement for the British Isles. I hope every area gets an Immersion Pack like this eventually. Though maybe the price should be slightly less like $7

China dlc

So this DLC introduces China as an off-map entity which you can ally with or war with. Being in the good graces of the Emperor grants you bonuses you can request, such as wives, scholars, generals, artifacts, etc. It also introduces the ability to write books, which function as artifacts to give your characters a boost. There are new Casus Bellis as well, giving you more ways to go to war.

Crusader Kings II: Holy Fury
 – 

Great dlc

After so many unimpressive DLCs, there is one that finally breaks the pattern and actually adds meaningful content and changes to the core of the game. Adds a great amount of meaningful content to various parts of the game - this should be the standard for paradox DLC in the future, and the fact that much more lacklustre pieces of DLC exist at the same price point makes this shine even more!

Hearts of Iron IV: Man the Guns
 – 

Interesting...

Most fun DLC to date. The Mexican focus tree alone is worthy enough.
Pros: Mexican focus tree, in any way you want to play it (ultracatholic/fascist or Trotsky leading the true revolution). I've had my most fun games to date playing it.
Cons: Great ships take ages to be built. The module system, though, is fun

Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger
 – 

Rule ASIA

So I tried playing as Japan and became a constitional monarchy and even joined the Allies. This became one of the strangest vanilla Heart of Iron IV experiences I've ever had. When I went democratic I pretty most lost my entire navy as the facist and my forces fought a violent civil war. I guess it's not a huge loss since I have the British Empire as an ally. While that was happening a random rebellion breaks out in the Soviet Union. I find my army fighting Hungarians and Croatians in the Balkans while the rest of my army fights the Germans in France. Things were going well until Italy joined the Axis and we have no sign of US help for a while because world tension was below 70%.

In other words I had no idea how this was going to turn out or what would happen next which made this one of the best experiences I've had in HOI IV.

Crusader Kings II: The Reaper's Due Content Pack
 – 

Ok....

The unit sprites, especially the eastern women are kind of generic looking compared to previous sprites, which is kind of disappointing. I mean the Mongol intrigue person has an eagle on her arm. The female Africans are slightly better but not by much. The Byzantine clothing is ok.

Crusader Kings II: Conclave Content Pack
 – 

Too expansive

Seriously? I have over 1500 hours logged on CK2, and I was very enthusiastic in the past. But this content should've been part of the update, and to keep nickeling and diming the fans for so little and for items that should've been included in gameplay in the first place. I'm increasingly disappointed with Paradox for these tactics.

Europa Universalis IV: Cradle of Civilization
 – 

Too expansive

Too expensive if you don't play in the Middle East (I do play in the Middle East, though, so personally I'm fine, but I imagine not too many folks play Timurids or Qara, so, there's that). But only *slightly* too expensive in that case.

That said, the change with Army Professionalism/Drilling is probably not being recognized for being as big as it is, even despite the attention it is already getting.

Europa Universalis IV: Mare Nostrum Content Pack
 – 

Not recommended

Sadly, the developer for this pack chose to ignore a significant flow of constructive criticism offered on Paradox forum and released it as is. I purchased it to support Paradox for making amazing games but that's it. I disable this pack in my games because I can't stand looking at this monstrosity.

Hearts of Iron IV is drastically different from Hearts of Iron III

Almost in every way better.

Europa Universalis IV: Rights of Man
 – 

Best eu4 expansion

With this latest expansion the title can no longer be referred to as simply a "paint the map your color" game as it has been in the past. With the new Great Power mechanic you can't ignore building tall anymore. Combine that with the features added in the Cossacks expansion, and you have plenty of stuff to worry about internally now as well as externally to maintain control within your realm.

Europa Universalis IV: Mare Nostrum
 – 

Overpriced

Overpriced for this content. I bought this just the renting your troops out for money and hireing other mercs when you need. It's fun during peace time to turn your troops into mercs and attack countries you want to help.
