Europa Universalis IV: DLC Collection

BATTLETECH Season Pass
 – 

Not as good as I'd hope

The new content is okay, but considering how much of it there is, I wouldn't say it's worth it unless heavily discounted. Overall, supposing you love the game and are using mods for additional content, you should get this to have the full experience available to you.

BATTLETECH Heavy Metal
 – 

Not a bad dlc

I've only put 2-3 hours into this DLC so far, but the additions are worth it if you're a fan of the base game.

BATTLETECH Flashpoint
 – 

Worthwhile DLC

It adds enough content to the base game to make it a worthwhile purchase on sale.

BATTLETECH Urban Warfare
 – 

My favorite DLC for Battletech

I like the variety it adds compared to the base game. I got about 5-6 hours out of the DLC so far.

Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut
 – 

Great game for older Macs

This is a great game if you have an older Mac. The specs on this are wrong. there is no 64 bit version so it has to be a pre Catalina Intel Mac. Other wise you need the windows version, It will run in a windows VM

Hearts of Iron IV: Eastern Front Music Pack
 – 

New musics for the game

I don't really have much to say. It is a few new musics to HOI IV. I'd recomend you give youtube/spotify a jump and hear them before buying.
I like them.

Campgrounds: The Endorus Expedition
 – 

Enjoyable, sometimes challenging and NO strategy guide

I enjoy playing this game ... some levels are easy, but some others are pretty challenging, which is good. It's the kind of game that I like to return to from time to time. I'd give this game a 5-star rating if it were not for the fact that when you click on the strategy guide for a bit of help on the more challenging levels, the game is interrupted (as in closed) and you're taken to the Big Fish website. I found a walkthrough online but obviously the strategy guide should have been accessible from within the game. That said, I'd definitely love to see more Campground installments.

Cities: Skylines - Rock City Radio
 – 

Rock music

I have purchased all the music stations (radios) in the game and I am satisfied. Some stations I like to listen to outside of the game.

Cities: Skylines - Content Creator Pack: Train Stations

Train stations

Although somewhat expensive (there are various modifications), they are suitable for the more demanding railway builder.

Dying Light - Hellraid
 – 

Hellraid

Okay, I have the complete game, so I didn't skip this DLC either, but it falls far short of the level of open world gameplay where I can do whatever I want in peace.

Dreamland Solitaire: Dark Prophecy Collector's Edition
 – 

Nice game

This game is all about cards. It has a little nice story to connect the matches.
The sound is good, the objectives are doable sometimes you need more than one try, but that's okay.

Stellaris: Lithoids Species Pack
 – 

Skipping Rocks

I'm glad to see this DLC available for Stellaris - the lithoids in Master of Orion 2 were weird and interesting to me when I was younger. Living rocks? That eat rocks? Crazy. But beyond adding living rocks to Stellaris, there's not much that this DLC does that you need. If you want rocks, get some rocks. Otherwise, skip the rocks.

Cities: Skylines
 – 

Not A Game

Cities: Skylines is difficult for me to review - I actually disliked it so much when I first bought it on steam, that I refunded it. I had never played a city-builder game before and it just wasn't for me. However, as an artist, I came back around to it years later, and bought it here - because what it's really useful for (with the right mods) is as a city-painter. Being able to plop down houses and shops and sidewalks and roads, planning out a town to set a comic in, making a 3d map you can cam around and really get a feeling for your setting, is where Cities: Skylines really opened up for me. As a game, I still can't get into it, but as a place where I can be creative it has been fairly good - I just wish I didn't have to mod it to get the type of 'creative mode' tools that I need.

Stellaris
 – 

Good and Getting Better

Stellaris is an interesting mix of bits and pieces from many different games. First and foremost is Paradox's normal grand strategy bits, but it also takes inspiration from Master of Orion, Sins of a Solar Empire, Civilization, and many other strategy games that have come before it. Sometimes successfully, sometimes not. The good news is that the game is still being actively developed. Bugs are being fixed, there's a lively modding community, new free updates and new paid DLC come out regularly, even 5 years in.
