Nice unit sprites, but totally cosmeticDaiMonPaul | July 31, 2013 | See all DaiMonPaul's reviews »
This DLC pack gives you 16 new vehicle models that show up on the map for the Empire of Japan. If you enjoy playing as or against Japan (i.e. in the Pacific Theatre), then this might be a nice piece of DLC to pick up. The unit models look great and are historically accurate, and they add to the immersion factor. However, they're entirely cosmetic, as all they do is replace the more generic sprite models that are currently in the game. Personally, I use the NATO counters when I play Hearts of Iron, so I don't even see the unit sprites, minimizing the impact of this DLC pack.
It's worth picking up if you want nicer, more accurate unit sprites to look at while you play, but it's certainly not necessary to enjoy the game.
