Reviews for Crusader Kings II: Celtic Portraits


For the people that want red hair

Adds new portraits for Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Breton characters. New faces, new clothing, red hair. This add nothing to the gameplay and is just for the visuals and your immersion. It is somewhat pricey at $2, it is better to buy them when they are on sale. A pack containing all of the portraits and unit packs would be nice for those interested. If you are only interested in content adding more gameplay elements, or your games don't often take you to the parts of the world that a portrait pack focuses on then you will want to save your money for something else.


Most attractive portraits

If you want to have attractive characters (not characters with the attractive trait, but ones with attractive portraits) then this is the best portrait pack to get (next to maybe the Greek one). I don't know if it makes me sound pretty lonely to talk about portrait attractiveness in CK2, but that is my opinion.


The eyes creep me out

This cosmetical DLC for Crusader Kings 2 adds many new face combinations for characters. Unfortunately when i play the game the eyes absolutely freak me out. They feel very out of place and creepy. I personally wouldn't reccommend this DLC.


An excellent set of cosmetics

Most of my games tend to centre in Ireland/Wales, so I find this DLC to be well worth it. The portraits come with a new, Celtic twist on the original style, which is very pleasing on the eye.


Best Portraits in the non-original/non-vanilla Style

The Celtic Portraits is probably the best of the portrait DLCs. Women look much more feminine compared to the Russian and Mediterranean DLCs, for instance. While the men do look a little funny at times, it is nothing out of the ordinary and both women and men look like people I have seen, much more so than the Russian or Mediterranean portraits or even Norse portraits. If you are one of those who absolutely detest the DLC style of portraits in general (the typical elements of the DLC portraits, such as small eyes for men and large eyes for women), at least consider getting the Celtic portraits sometime - the quality, while not the same as the vanilla or Mongol portraits, probably comes the closest out of all the portrait DLCs to the original portraits. Like all portrait sets, the Celtic portraits are not essential to enjoying the game - however, they're a good buy if they're on sale, and/or you want to add some more variety to your game.


pretty good pack.

Crusader Kings 2 does get another expansion pack! This is a small pack though, it adds alot (1000+) new face combinations, for male and females, Celtic culture only. This includes Irish, Scottish, Welsh and breton characfters, it's a small pack but it's really immersive and it's really realistic. The pack is cheap so I recommend picking it up.
