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.

Stellaris: Leviathans Story Pack
 – 

Here There Be Monsters

This DLC is fairly skippable, but if you like the idea of running into some horrible space monsters and having to muster fleets to deal with them, Leviathans has you covered. Adds a little more flavor and points of interest to your game, but it's not necessary to really enjoy Stellaris.

Stellaris: Humanoids Species Pack
 – 

Currently Cosmetic

As of this writing, this DLC is entirely cosmetic - which is fine, if you just want to have some space orks or space elves or space dwarves, and some rounded, star-trek-esque spaceships. For the price, really comes down to how much you want those things. However, Paradox has announced that they're going to be coming back around and adding some minor functionality to this DLC, so in the future it may have some neat futures that make it more attractive.

Stellaris: Federations
 – 

One of Two

Federations and Utopia are two almost-required DLC for playing Stellaris. Federations, in particular, has some key features - namely, Origins, Megastructures, and Federations. The Origins add replayability and variety through different starting conditions. You can form a federation without owning this DLC - but you'll be limited to the default type, where this DLC adds more variety (many of which are much better suited to specific playstyles and empire types). And lastly, the megastructures - powerful end-game constructions that give you something to do in the late game besides crank out battleships. The Galactic Community is not terribly relevant, and the Juggernaught is nice - but not really the highlight of the DLC.

Stellaris: Utopia
 – 

Two of Two

The second of two nearly-mandatory DLC for Stellaris - the first being Federations - Utopia adds more megastructures, ascension perks and Traditions (these should not be unfamiliar to Civ 5 players), and some more Civics to customize your government with for more replayability and variety.

Europa Universalis IV: Rule Britannia
 – 

Can be good

If you like to play like England or Ireland I would recommend it. Because it gives more depth to this nations. If you don't like these nations there are no reasons to get it.

Europa Universalis IV: Emperor
 – 

Adds so much to Europe

If you like to play in the hre or Italy this DLC is really good. So many mission tree and revamps the hre mechanics. Before this DLC I thought is was a little bit boring to play in Europe. But this adds so much and the hre is interesting now.

Europa Universalis IV: Conquest of Paradise
 – 

Boring

This DLC just makes the new world a little bit less boring. It is still a waiting game for around 100 years. The mechanics is nothing special and the gameplay is repetitive.

Europa Universalis IV: Dharma
 – 

India is interesting

Before this India was pretty boring. But with this DLC its ads a lot of things. Missions tree and new events. This makes the gameplay more fun. Then the addition of trade company makes trade better.

Really fun Grand Strategy Game

One of the easiest ways to get into complex Paradox Grand Strategy Games, which you can sink a lot of hours into

Crusader Kings III: Royal Edition
 – 

Fantastic Fusion of Grand Strategy and RPG

I originally played this on Xbox Game Pass for the PC and found that this was practically the only game I played with the subscription. It combines two genres I love, grand strategy and roleplaying games, into a fun medieval setting that gets you into the mind of your character while reigning over a realm.

One of the best titles out there. Worthy successor to CK2.

Stellaris: Lithoids Species Pack
 – 

Dubious value

Like most species packs it doesn't add a lot, but a must if you want to play as Lithoids. If you don't you're not missing anything.

Stellaris: Necroids Species Pack
 – 

Dubious value

As most of the species packs, it doesn't actually add a lot, but if you want to play as Necroids, its a must. Try to get on sale.
