Stellaris: Nemesis
 – 

Underwhelming

The highlight of this expansion was to 'become the crisis' but this system seems a little underwhelming. By the time you get there you're probably steamrolling. It comes with unique ship types (menacing corvette/destroyer/cruisers) but these use the pirate models which look very out of place as a proper, advanced empire - you'd expect them to have a new ship set or at least use your normal one with highlights. They also use minerals which seems useful but by the time you get to them (3 ascension perks plus) you have tooled you your economy for alloys which suddenly becomes almost useless.

The update is decent but the DLC's main feature is not.

Europa Universalis IV: Rule Britannia
 – 

DLC focused on Britain

This DLC is optional as it only adds content for Britain. Doesn't add much content outside of Britain.

Europa Universalis IV: Mare Nostrum
 – 

One of the best non-mandatory DLC

This DLC gives some interesting new features like counterespionage and condottieri. Definitely worth taking on a discount.

Europa Universalis IV: Golden Century
 – 

Adds few features to maritime nations

Not worth to buy it full price. Wait for a discount. It only adds a few features to maritime nations. Can build a flagship and become a pirate nation!

Incredible Dracula: Legacy Of The Valkyries Collector's Edition
 – 

Great game!

I happen to love the Incredible Dracula games and this one is no exception. Although it can be frustrating to figure out how to make a potion or even get the ingredients needed to make it, once you figure it out you can replay the level and get a better score. Just the right amount of challenge and routine.

Cities: Skylines - Industries
 – 

Best DLC without a doubt

This DLC really expands your base game. You can basically create your own county with this, where you can have an agricultural area in one place, a small village next to it and then, you can have a big metropolis in the distance.
The new aspects they add to the game, allow you to focus on more details in the game. You can bring in a lot of money If your industry logistics is set up right. This is a true definition of a DLC where it expands the base game by such a big amount and it's not just some meaningless cosmetic upgrade to it.

Hearts of Iron IV: Cadet Edition
 – 

WWII - the best scene

I think it is a great game, without the DLCs too. Complex but useful, I really like it. And it was cheap compared to other stores or the marketplaces, and it has a huge gametime, so it worths every eurocent.

League of Light: Growing Threat Collector's Edition
 – 

For the hidden object aficionados

Best hidden objects game I've seen in a long while. Many returns to the same locaitons, but with a different twist the second time around. Plentiful mini-games that get more challenging as the game goes on.

Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance
 – 

Spy idleness

It's not that great. 3 Focus trees that are too long, but the Portuguese and Spaninsh are not that bad. The resistance changes are nice and fairly well done. Espionage is not that great, its far too limited and most of the time not particularly worth it.

Hearts of Iron IV: Battle for the Bosporus
 – 

Empires of old

Another dlc that just adds 3 long focus trees, at least restoring the Ottoman or Byzantine empires is a fun challenge.

Europa Universalis IV: Leviathan

Monumantally disastrous

Overpriced and introduces far too many bugs. The features added are nice for the most part.

Stellaris: Leviathans Story Pack
 – 

Great add-on

This is a good DLC for those who enjoy Stellaris and want to add a lot more flavor (and more challenges) to the base game. It also adds music, which is always good for a game like this.

Great game

I enjoyed playing this game because of it's focusing on the small details and the realistic factors.

100% Hidden Objects
 – 

LOVED

I absolutely loved this game, but since the mac update to 64bit, this game is no longer compatible and will not run. I am hoping that the developers will find a way to allow this game to work with 64 bit mac operating systems because I really miss this game.

Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor
 – 

Good, but some of the content should have been included in the main game

Some of what is included in this dlc should definitely have been in the base game, but for the low price of $1.99 that I purchased it at, I would say that it is worth it.

One More Game

Best FM game out there and no reason to get any other. 10 seasons in and no bugs at all. Plenty of high quality graphic mods are available for even more realism!

Cities: Skylines - Content Creator Pack: Modern Japan
 – 

Unique buildings, not a new district style

This pack only has unique buildings in it. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's more in line with earlier content creator packs than with the more recent ones, which add district styles. The skyscrapers are pretty cool, though.

Worth considering when it's on sale.

Cities: Skylines - Content Creator Pack: Modern City Center
 – 

Good content pack

This is my favorite content creator pack. If you enjoy building large, dense, elaborate city centers, you'll probably enjoy this DLC.

Cities: Skylines - Content Creator Pack: University City
 – 

Great assets, but no district style

This is a good content pack. I liked it even though I prefer building city centers to building suburbs. All the buildings have to be placed directly, though; the DLC doesn't add a new district style for college towns.
