Summary of this DLC

The DLC gives your game an exapnsion of the Thirteen Colonies, in which are able to revolt against the British and their rule, and to become a new nation: USA. In addition, more mechanics of the North America tribes (which aren't mentioned because of the point of this DLC) with a bumped-up manpower, and have the option to play as USA when you let the Thirteen Colonies set free from [your] rule.

Pros
It gives the game of Europa Universalis IV more interesting, and in some reviews, some mods are better with this expansion pack. The mechanis in the USA are altered than the USA without the American Dream DLC, and some of which are the events are harder to trigger, both effective and affective, and the manpower of USA is increased by .5%.
With the Workshop being included into Europa Universalis IV, the DLC is compatiable with any other DLC and vice versa, and the American Dream can be altered, both via worshop and via file editing, which is why in my opinion, is one of my favorite DLC Paradox released for Europa Universalis IV.

Cons
It only gives the event for USA to be released, and it can be improved along with the mechanics of USA itself, such as modifying the USA's strengths to be higher to some extent. Not only it has Over-Powered rebels, it also has quite too much of rebels trying to free USA to become independent.

Other than the Cons, this game is great.

Apart from being the inspiration for some... "interesting" songs, this DLC makse playing as the USA more fun. Even though, you'll never use it, it's still worth it for the unit models it adds.

Be advised that this DLC is NOT compatible with the Conquest of Paradise Expansion, which makes this a pretty pointless buy.

Since US is so limited in timescale its content isnt great
However if your feeling particularly like a proud patriotic american then it does make the US a far more interesting campaign, albeit predictable
Honestly it shouldve been an update to make colonies a more viable play
