The look of the new graphic models the Norse Unit Pack DLC adds into the game are great. You can say they are Vikings by their clothing, their long beards, their axes, pikes and shields, their strong, nothern, Scandinavian appearance.

Although they do look cool, i cannot recommend you to purchase this DLC unless you expect to spend at least 100 hours playing as a Norse ruler or it is on a sale. From my perspective, it is something Paradox should have added in the base game or at least in a multi-content pack where you could purchase 3 or 4 unit packs for the price of 1. This is still available during the sales where you can buy 3 at the price of 1 but it is just not right for me. I like Paradox, i'm a huge fan of their games but i cannot approve this marketing policy of theirs.

To conclude, buy this DLC only if it is on sale. Even then, consider if you will play as a Viking ruler more than once or twice. If you are not going to, then simply do not waste your money on pixels you will see occasionally.

Everyone has an awesome story about Crusader Kings they like to tell to get new players into the game. For me it's the time I zoomed into a really close battle and noticed that my guy was represented by the Norse Unit DLC.

The only reason I won't downvote this is because they are Vikings and therefore might kill me.

If you enjoy some diversity on your screen, then, I'd certainly say purchase this pack. The Norse models are really cool, and, compliment the Finn, Rus, and Holy Order appearance packs quite well.

Not working. Did briefly in the past. Seems to have broken with the Charlemagne patch.

The first and last time I purchased a Paradox graphics pack... The dissapointment was palpable. There isn't even a different male/female councillor model.

This amounts to $0.18 a model for character models that are halfway between PS2 and N64 graphics. I would have forgotten which ones were enabled were it not for remembering the dissapointment. Even on sale, the graphics DLC are simply not justifiable. The whole bundle of every unit pack ever released isn't worth the $0.50 sale price.
