Summary

Genuinely dislikable.

The Good

Not much; the graphics are appealing at first, but this is definitely not the kind of game you'd expect from the company which brought you the everlasting Dune II.

The Bad

A lot of things. It was overhyped and completely lacks in many respects.

The unit AI is just absolutely crappy (the game also has a tendency to lose track of units after a few clicks); the graphics are OK but not all that good, the missions are annoying and the two sides are completely unbalanced. The music isn't very good, nor is the gameplay (annoying units, no-fun "specials") and it completely lacks the atmosphere which made Dune II the great game it was.

The Bottom Line

Play it once, I assure you you'll keep away from it long afterwards.
