If you are already a convert to the Command & Conquer strategy war games then Dune 2000 is a must buy title. For the uninitiated among you I would suggest that you first purchase Red Alert or Retaliation first because they're more polished games. Then, and only when you are fully converted, you may want to taste the spice...
A great game to play if you are looking for something a little different. Don't expect too many differences from other "Command and Conquer" style games, but the Dune setting does add a lot. If you are a fan of this genre of games then this is a definite addition to your collection. If you like the books or the movie "Dune" than this game is designed to please. I heartily recommend it; just don't blame me if you get sucked in more than you had intended.
The game itself is challenging, but not difficult. It's definitely doable. If you are a fan of the Command and Conquer series, this should be no problem for you. It takes a quick hand and a fast mind to stay on top of things, but overall, it's not too bad.
Pour la jouabilité, on reste encore très loin de l'extase même avec une manette analogique. Seule la souris PSX pourra véritablement relever le défi. Pourtant Westwood a tenter de bien retranscrire les possibilités avec une navigation simplifiée et même la possibilité de créer des groupes d'unités. Mais bon, au mieux on y arrive avec un peu de temps mais on est loin de la maniabilité rêvée. L'intelligence artificielle est aussi un bel échec avec des ennemis aussi bornés et réactifs que des limaces kamikazes tandis que vos unités ne lèveront même pas le petit doigt si des combats se déroulent devant leur nez...
For fans of Command and Conquer, Dune 2000 is the sequel to the real-time strategy game that started it all, Dune II. In Dune 2000, you play as one of three rival "houses" from Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi book series. You can select from the Atreides, Harkonnen, or the Ordos. Each house has its own strengths and weaknesses, just like the GDI and the NOD, from C&C. Basically a port of the PC version, Dune 2000 is lackluster at best, because it is a port of a lackluster PC game.

Det enda som talar för Dune är att det liknar Command & Conquer samt att det inte har särskilt mycket konkurrens. Ungefär lika spännande som Gobiöknen. Bara för dig som är helt desperat efter mer strategispel.
Overall, while Dune 2000 may be worth playing to some on the PC, any good aspects or ideas are completely wasted on the PlayStation incarnation. The main problem is definitely the difficulty in micro-managing via a game controller -- As a play experience, this alone takes away any reasonable playability, and the poor graphics and uninspired theme round off the overall bad gameplay. Steer clear of this one.
Dune 2000 is basically Dune II with better graphics (at least on the PC). There are a few more twists thrown in, but overall I don't see how this game would entice anyone to buy it. Fans of the original PC game are sure to enjoy Dune 2000 more than others due to the nostalgia factor. People who have already played games like WarCraft II, Command & Conquer, or StarCraft will probably find Dune 2000 a bore to play. With inferior graphics and questionable play control I really can't recommend buying this game when there are so many better ones out there to spend money on. If you absolutely must have Dune 2000, do yourself a favor and pick it up on PC. At least you'll have the high-resolution graphics and better play mechanics to comfort you.
