The east side of the mapLtom | April 7, 2014 | Review of Crusader Kings II: Rajas of India
Crusader Kings II: Rajas of India was a much-needed addition to Crusader Kings II, adding the Indian subcontinent and finally giving the east side of the map some love. The three new religions come with interesting mechanics and pleasing aesthetics ensuring a new perspective to play from. Playing as the new Indian rulers is a blast, especially if you've grown tired of playing as Christians, Pagans and Muslims. As an added bonus, the new Indian portraits are part of this DLC, rather than being a separate package.
The free patch that came with this game further integrates it with Steam, providing a hassle-free experience. I'm personally fine with downloading mods from the Forum, but for those who find that too complicated, the patch also includes Steam Workshop integration.
I'm very happy with this expansion.
Much needed varietyLtom | May 24, 2013 | Review of Crusader Kings II: Songs of the Caliph
This and Songs of Byzantium are probably the essential music DLCs. The middle eastern songs really enhance the immersion. The vanilla songs really feel awkward when playing a Muslim. An extra song would have been nice, however.
A guilty pleasureLtom | May 24, 2013 | Review of Crusader Kings II: Sunset Invasion
It can add a fun bit of variety, but sacrifices historical accuracy. It's certainly skippable, and perhaps never should have been made. That said, it's very hilarious, a guilty pleasure every now and then.
