-Quick Review-
The Civilization and Scenario Pack: Denmark – The Vikings adds the civilization “Denmark” and it's leader Harald Bluetooth to the Civilization V mix, and the Scenario “1066: Year of the Viking Destiny”.

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: The 1066: Year of the Viking Destiny Scenario is one of my personal favorites, you take place in a 4-way-tug-of-war between England, Norway, Denmark, and Normandy. The objective is to build six Domesday Shire Courts, then complete the Domesday Book in London.
Depending on which faction you chose, the strategy slightly changes but the over all goal is the same; Conquest of the English Mainland and push back the other Usurpers! Each faction has it's own abilities and some even have special units which are only experienced in this scenario.

Gameplay: The Danish civilization abilities make them far more suited to a domination victory, the sooner you get out to sea and dominate the ocean, the sooner you can control the game. Naturally this means that if you're landlocked, one of your best exploration abilities are for naught...
The unique Units the Danish have are the Beserker (which replaces the Longswordsman), and the Norwegian Ski Infantry (replacing the rifleman). The abilities for the Danish are: Embarked units have +1 movement and pay just 1 movement point to move from sea to land. Melee units also pay no movement point cost to pillage.

Achievements: There are about nine achievements associated with the “1066: Year of the Viking Destiny” Scenario. I suggest buckling down and look up some guides for this one, because you need to beat this scenario on the hardest difficulty. There are also two achievements relating to the Danish civilization; beat the game, and enter a snow tile with the Norwegian ski infantry.

Price: Civilization and Scenario Pack: Denmark – The Vikings is priced at $4.99, by far the best DLC deal on steam is the Civilization V: Complete Edition for $49.99.

Conclusion: In conclusion, I do have a bias for both the scenario and the civilization; Some of the first computer games I played were medieval-based strategy games. Additionally the Danish Embarked +1 movement ability compliments my play style. Lastly, Harald Bluetooth is a cheerful chipper fellow, I can't help but like him!
In all seriousness, this DLC was pretty good, and I did spend at least 4 hours playing it, I'd suggest waiting for a sale before purchasing, or better yet, getting all the DLC in one big bundle on sale.

The Vikings is my favorite DLC for Civ V thus far. The scenario it comes was fun enough to play 3 times (as 3 different factions) and the Danes are, of course, an excellent choice to either play as or try to best in a single player game.
