While cheap, you would expect a grand strategy game which focuses on dynasties and characters within them to include portraits of all races within the map. I don't really feel I can down-vote this DLC given that the price is reasonable and the quality is there; but this is the sort of addition I'd expect, if not with the game on release, perhaps added as a free update.

That aside, I think this and the Mongol Portrait Pack are a worthy addition if you're a fan of the game.

Finally...Paradox did something about the racially inaccurate african faces. Formerly they were the same as North African Bedouins and Andalusians, but this DLC adds in the requisite feathers, head dresses and face paint that Africans are known for.

I don't know whats worse - the fact this is actually a DLC, or the fact I felt compelled to buy it so I wasnt playing some 1950s hollywood vision of the medieval world.

This DLC is a thing that should not be in so many ways - yet i had to buy it so i could stomach the otherwise incredibly playable game behind the graphics.

Advise: buy on severe discount with card profits.

In honor of the cause put forth in a Baltimore protests, I purchased this DLC so I can be black too. Worth the full 1.99, would purchase again. Now, off to lead my Black Jewish Empire to conquer the white people.
