Adds Flavor

Adds new unit graphics, not new unique units. That being said, the dlc does make gameplay more immersive in the african continent. The graphics look good and even the marching animations are different. Ultimately, these detail do add up to make a playthrough feel a bit more global.


Overpriced cosmetics

This DLC does not add anything but a reskin of a couple of units. It is nice that developers work to improve aspects like these, but DLC adding this little should be free or cost far less than two Euros.

Two dollars for a reskin of African units. With no new actual units. For a singeplayer experience. No thank you. The African Units pack is utterly useless. Even if you have a couple of dollars left, it's simply not worth it. Better off buying something else.


Should have been in the game to begin with

Don't get me wrong, the African Unit Pack for Crusader Kings II is great and really does add to the game, especially when playing as a Muslim ruler who is well positioned to conquer these African nations and spread Islam to them. However, these areas are fairly small and in most games of CKIIand players will rarely, if ever, come into contact with them. It really seems like a silly DLC, however at least it is an entirely optional and purely cosmetic DLC rather than one that affects gameplay. Having said that, it is worth picking up on sale or discount if you want more variety in the African regions.

Now this dlc doesn't do much but if you want a more detailed crusader kings experience then get it. The dlc just makes the African units look more detailed, now this may not sound like a lot but because Africa is a continent and you might spend a lot of time there this dlc just makes that long experience a bit more enjoyable and different to travelling across the other continents. Don't get this if you're not going to spend a lot of time playing crusader kings but if you are then this should be worth while. The reason why I feel this dlc isn't that great is just because in all fairness it should have been included in the full game but if you get past that then it's a good addition.
