Hearts of Iron IV: No Step Back
 – 

Great HoI4 DLC

The Russia overhaul and the new train mechanic is great. The new tank designer not so much. THe new focus trees are also really good.

Stellaris: Aquatics Species Pack
 – 

Finally worthy Space Pirates

I wish I could sing sea shanties, because this DLC makes me happy all around. Now if it was just possible to actually found a space pirate empire...

Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger
 – 

The Asian front

Yes, this is a great DLC. The China/Japan issue in WW2 is rarely mentioned, and you get to relive it here.

Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor
 – 

Slavic rave

Good DLC, basically a must for Europe, also, if you like Balkan parties. Because let's face it, slavic party, best party.

Hearts of Iron IV: Cadet Edition
 – 

Great game.

This is where you start to play HoI4. You can have a lot of fun even without the DLCs, and I strongly recommend doing that. This beast is complex, but Cadet edition without DLCs makes the learning easier.

Hearts of Iron IV: Man the Guns
 – 

Great if you like US & UK

So, I should like this... but I don't, since I usually don't play with US and/or UK. But if you do, you get a hefty pack of content, and you get a some very interesting strategic choices, including civil war or the deconolisation of India. Very nice.

Europa Universalis IV: Emperor
 – 

Read the bible!

Religion, maybe no. But admit it, you love killing infidels. Now do it in the name of the Pope, so add two stars to the review.

Europa Universalis IV: Conquest of Paradise
 – 

Before the wild west was interesting

Useless DLC, the random generation of the native american world and the tribe mechanisms are sub-par.

Hearts of Iron IV: Together for Victory
 – 

Commonwealth schmommonwealth

Sorry, this DLC doesn't make any sense. Though, one extra point because finally you can play with Australia and become the major Pacific power.

Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance
 – 

Must have DLC

This one is worth it just for the new espionage mechanism. Makes everything so much more "diplomatic".

Hearts of Iron IV: Battle for the Bosporus
 – 

Buggy but interesting

3 new focus trees, but it all seems so buggy, what's going on? One of the more random-number-generator focused DLCs...

Stellaris: Nemesis
 – 

Destroy the universe

Power overwhelming! Finally I'm the real bad guy. (wait, I think I was before, no? right?)

Victoria II: A House Divided
 – 

Must have DLC

After playing this now for quite a bit, this introduces so many great mechanics, that base Vicky2 is unplayable without. Do yourself a favour and get this.

Crusader Kings III: Royal Edition

Victoria II: Heart of Darkness
 – 

Necessary DLC

The crisis system is the most important addition. Bought this just for this. Naval has also been improved.
