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.

I don't quite like the fact that they misrepresented east africans (IE somalis ethiopians nubians) but it is overall good

Finally...Paradox did something about the racially inaccurate african faces. Formally 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.
