Summary

If you can find it anywhere - go get it!

The Good

It was revolutionary! It had absolutely beautiful graphics and sound for the time. It had an awesome adventure part - quite easy, but beautifully done. And it has a rather challenging strategy part. Most of all - although the game isn't particularly hard to beat - once you've solved it you have the feeling of having accomplished something. And you've had fun!

Oh, and you can switch languages. I wish other games had that. The monkey islands, for example. How hard could it be to include *every* language they'd publish it in on the CD rather than publish x different versions?

The Bad

Well, it's pretty straight forward. And getting your harvester eaten by sand worms sucks.

The Bottom Line

Almost a decade old and still a joy. A fitting tribute to Frank Herbert - the feel of Dune, the desert planet, comes across perfectly.
