Of course, it’s not a perfect game by any means. It does play rather slowly, and the rudimentary scaffolding of the gameplay pokes unattractively through its smooth facade from time to time. But nonetheless, if you’re willing to settle down with it, to become absorbed, you’ll find plenty to get your teeth into. And it’s great to see this on the Mega CD, which has hardly seen any titles that could be termed ‘adventurous’. Until now, that is.
Alors que demander de plus ? Dune est véritablement parfait, c'est l'un des rares jeux ou l'on peut encore s'amuser sans faire attention aux années qui ont vieilli ce titre. Pourtant, le Mega-CD n'a pas eu le succès que lui espérait Sega. Dune a été le seul titre sur ce support à sauver sa réputation en Europe. Beaucoup ont commencé le T-RPG avec ce chef d'œuvre de Cryo et ont sûrement découvert Dragon Force par la suite. Alors si vous êtes passé à côté de ce titre, n'hésitez pas, procurez-vous le maintenant. Car il n'est jamais trop tard pour découvrir la version numérique de la formidable épopée de Frank Herbert et qu'enfin, vous puissiez goûter au frisson de l'eau de la vie.
Es difícil valorar globalmente la obra de Cryo puesto que se trata de una producción totalmente "partida". Tal vez esto sea producto de buscar una mayor duración del juego extendiendo la parte estratégica o puede que simplemente se quedaran sin ideas para alargar la trama y decidieron tirar por la calle de en medio. Sea como fuere Dune se queda lejos de alcanzar las cotas a las que en un comienzo parecía destinado.
Game Players
Dune makes great strides in taking Sega CD into the "multimedia revolution", but the heart of this audio/visual extravaganza is a straightforward, overly liner adventure that just isn't fun.
As a game, it’s difficult to recommend Dune. It’s not that the game elements are bad but, despite all the style and polish. There simply isn’t enough actual game here to warrant a purchase. Those looking for a Dune-themed game would do better to investigate Westwood’s excellent RTS released around the same time. As an interactive retelling of the classic, Dune has far more promise. For those unfamiliar with Dune I wouldn’t recommend it as an introduction to Herbert’s universe, but would instead point you towards the novel first and then perhaps the film or television series. For those of you who know Dune inside and out, who have read the novels, watched the film, seen the television series and who want to experience it from a new perspective, this is a perfect opportunity to do so. Who knows, maybe they’ll become the Kwisatz Haderach!
