Reviews for Crusader Kings II - Mongol Faces DLC
Optional Cosmetic DLCcybrxkhan | May 6, 2013 | See all cybrxkhan's reviews »
This DLC adds much-needed variety to the Mongols, who in vanilla CKII appear, rather horridly and ahistorically, like swarthy, dark-skinned Muslims. Unfortunately, this portrait pack won't be of much use if you don't deal with the Mongols much (although some CKII mods make better use of it) and/or tend not to play far enough into the game to see the Mongols. Thankfully, it is entirely optional and won't ruin your gameplay experience. In the CKII community they are considered arguably the best of the portrait DLCs, on par with the original vanilla Western and Muslim portrait sets. Still, if you're looking for some variety and immersion, the Mongol portraits aren't too bad a deal if you can find them on sale.
This is DLC?!Wredniak | July 5, 2012 | See all Wredniak's reviews »
When I first saw this dlc I decided I'm going to pass it. Thousands of faces for $2 seemed ridiculous then. In the mean time I was gifted this dlc by a friend and decided to check it out. I saw no difference, European countries had almost none contact with any of Mongol provinces. I feel that this content should have been included for free in the first place. As the image should reflect how people looked in certain areas. This dlc is clearly a step in the wrong direction. As for the sprites... this game doesn't have great graphics and it isn't important then why spend money on poorly looking pixels? I was thinking hard who I should recommend this dlc and sadly I can't imagine anyone. Maybe someone that must have all dlc? But even then I'd wait for bundle/discount. This dlc in my opinion isn't worth $0.50 not to mention full 2 dollars.
