Summary

a shame, considering its from 1998

The Good

Its easy to get into gameplay, graphics are nice and useable. Keeping an Overview is not difficult. Interface is okay.

The Bad

This game was released at roughly the same time as Starcraft and thats why it sucks. Making a game about Dune without incorporating the depth of the novels and the movie is idiotic. Compare it to Starcraft: There you cant wait to go on to the next mission because you want to know what happens next. The storyline is absolutely captivating. Dune 2000 is just lame. Graphics are not bad but definitely out of date, sounds are not bad, but dont create much atmosphere. As a RTS it was already out-dated, as a Dune-game its worse than the dos-version from 1992 (which is still great today).

The Bottom Line

If you need a windows version of the dos-RTS, buy this. If you are looking for a classic RTS, take Starcraft instead.
