Stellaris: Aquatics Species Pack
 – 

Good minor DLC

Stellaris has finally brought aquatic based civilizations to the game and it's actually a well designed immersion pack with beautiful portraits and ships as well as some interesting and surprising civics, perks and origins.

Europa Universalis IV: Leviathan
 – 

Good idea, poor execution

"Leviathan" sounds really good when you read the DLC's description but the problem with this one is the absolutely poor execution. When it first came out, half a year ago, the DLC broke the entire game with its game breaking bugs and problems and even today many of those problems are left unfixed or partly fixed. If and when Paradox manages to fix the mess they created then this DLC could be considered a decent addition to the game. Buy this DLC during a big sale and have a lot of patience.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Invasions

More great DLC

The second DLC for Planetfall is continuing the good trend from the first by adding interesting new mechanics to the game along with new factions that add flavour to the game.

Prison Architect - Going Green
 – 

Good, minor DLC

This small DLC adds some fun and useful things of an ecological "flavour" to the choices you have in regards to building your prison. All in all a good DLC that adds things to the game without any major issues.

Stellaris: Necroids Species Pack
 – 

Narrowly focused DLC

This DLC adds the Necroid (undead) faction to the main game with all the things associated with it ( civs, ships and artwork) but nothing else. If you're interested in playing as an undead menace to the galaxy then this will be a welcome DLC, if not then you can easily skip it without any consequences.

Imperator: Rome - Heirs of Alexander Content Pack
 – 

Good DLC

This is actually a very good DLC that only adds flavour to the Diadochi kingdoms but some interesting gameplay additions such as great Wonders to the main game. It's also very sad that this will , most likely, be the last DLC for this game since Paradox has decided to abandon it. It's actually a good buy but be aware that the main game will most likely never be updated again.

Stellaris: Nemesis
 – 

"I am the senate"

Yes, you can finally channel your inner Chancellor Palpatine (from Star Wars) and become the senate and then the emperor in this interesting DLC that adds quite a few end game options for your game as well as a new but relatively untested (needs more work) espionage system that can surely improve with updates. The price could have been a bit lower perhaps but this DLC is definitely worth a buy especially during a sale.

Cities: Skylines - Sunset Harbor
 – 

Decent minor DLC

This minor DLC certainly adds a few interesting things in the main game but it surely isn't worth 15$. Wait to buy it during a good sale and it will be a good addition for players who like the main game.

Stellaris: Federations
 – 

Good DLC

Federations adds much needed depth to the diplomacy aspect of the game and gives the player more options to tackle enemies with peaceful means. A must have for diplomacy oriented players.

Imperator: Rome - Epirus Content Pack
 – 

Decent DLC for its price

This small DLC adds a little more detail for the important nation of Epirus but nothing else and can easily be skipped.

Imperator: Rome - Magna Graecia Content Pack
 – 

Very good DLC

This DLC adds quite a lot more flavour to the Greek city-states of mainland Greece and Magna Graecia and makes playing as them a lot more fun. A good buy for players interested in playing countries in the region.

Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance
 – 

Mediocre DLC

The new focus trees for France , Spain and Portugal are quite good and the improved Spanish Civil War is certainly a highlight for players but the new espionage system while not too bad is a bit underwhelming and simplistic and doesn't really give the player enough things to do.

Cities: Skylines - Campus
 – 

Small DLC for a great game

This is just another "small" DLC that adds more options and content in regards to education in your city. It's certainly not a big deal but for people who love the game and wish to experience everything it has to offer then buying this DLC (especially during a sale) is definitely not a bad decision.

Crusader Kings III: Royal Edition
 – 

New and Improved

Paradox have done well this time and created a worthy successor to the venerable Crusader Kings 2. I can't wait to see how well this game develops and how excellent it will be a few years from today.

Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack
 – 

Good DLC

Interesting DLC that adds depth to an already very deep and engrossing game.

Cities: Skylines - Parklife
 – 

Nice DLC but nothing special

This DLC adds the ability to create parks in the spaces between your buildings and allows you to beautify your city. This might seem trivial for some players but for others it was something that was requested for quite some time. Buy the DLC only if you're interested in what it has to offer.

ELEX
 – 

Stay away from this mess

I used to be a huge fan of Piranha Bytes and loved the Gothic series (even the bug ridden Gothic 3). However Elex is a total disaster and the reason for this is the combat system which is a huge mess and totally unacceptable for a game that came out in 2017. I knew that Piranha Bytes games had poor combat but the combat here is worse than anything i've ever seen. Except the combat the voice acting is just atrocious and completely immersion breaking as your character speaks with the charisma of a tree log. The other characters are hardly better - i understand that voice acting wasn't a priority but even amateur actors would have done better than this. As for the game world it is indeed huge but not terribly beautiful or interesting.
Piranha Bytes have been floundering after Gothic 3 but ELEX is the last straw for me and the last time i am giving them my hard earned money.

Crusader Kings II: Hymns of Revelation
 – 

Music DLC

Just a small music DLC that adds a few songs with christian religious flavor. Buy it if you want the musical immersion and wish to support the creators of the game.

Assassin's Creed Origins
 – 

The series takes a leap backwards(in time)

Ubisoft's decision to go back to the distant past for this game changes a lot of things for the franchise. Gone are the days when you jumped from rooftop to rooftop in the great cities of Europe. However this change is not for the worst as you have the chance to view , in great detail , the magical land of Egypt in the past. If you never liked the series in the past this game will not change your mind.
