About This Content

This expansion for Democracy 3 adds new dilemmas and policies which allow you to exert subtle change upon your country. Income taxes and Economic policy are big blunt instruments, but with social engineering you get to influence the population in far subtler ways. From TV ad campaigns to promote healthy eating to free parenting classes, city farms and a smart-meter program, these policies use the more subtle 'nudge' techniques to encourage behavioral change amongst your population. A total of 26 completely new policies and 8 new dilemmas are available, regardless what country you are playing.

New Dilemmas:
  • Airport transport links
  • Banknote face
  • Prevent Doctors being bribed

The DLC for the Democracy series at this time is not bad, however the gameplay value is minor; for the most part there are mods out there that do more to alter gameplay. This DLC is nice but in my opinion not worth five dollars, wait for a sale. Overall the DLC is fun, just not very important.

Excellent job. When you make an incentive for hybrid cars more people become enviromentalists. When you tax the crap out of automobiles more people use public transportation. When the countries poverty is lowered the percentage of the poor population lowers. The policies add increased immersion as well. It may not add much but it carries on the democracy 3 spirit of experimentation.

The new policies are minor but useful, and they work just fine in my game. Something that could make this overpriced mod even better is if the creator would make any of the dilemmas actually work.

Overall rating 9/10

Introduces more subtle changes into the game which enable you to fine tune your policies more and win over more people than was possible beforehand

I enjoy this DLC pack :D
$5 is not that big of a deal for a stack of legit content, but I got it on sale anyway ^p^ If you have a problem with the price wait for the next sale yo.

No, don't buy this, it adds minor things like, policies that affect only 1 thing, MANY OF THOSE, imagine a policy that only cost 2 PC, but only decreses card usage by a bit, the only thing cool here, (listen to me) THE ONLY THING COOL HERE, is the business start up program, and the young entreprenur scheme, only 2-3 COOL POLICIES, for 4.99 don't buy this, the only down side is that you need this to have some mods, but if you dont want to spend money and if you dont like the game as much, this dlc will not make you change your oppinion!

3/10 ----- Only for the mods and for the business....

This game (and the DLCs) is super fun. Much better than playing Angry Birds or some other smartphone game.

Not sure if I can recommend this expansion or not. Add more content, but doesn't change the game et all. All new policies are minimal under my perspective.
