After the entertaining, yet somewhat dissapointing DUNE 2000, we get a new RTS game in the Dune Universe which exceeds all my expectations. First off we have the new movie chapters, setting up the story and giving you orders for your missions, which not only are visually superior to those of the previous game, but at times to both the movie and the miniseries! Though the plot is barely like in the classic novel, it remains more faithful to the feel and visual style that Dune still deserves in a movie form. Once again the visual work is kept close to the David Lynch film, but offers plenty of new sights. Not only that, but visuals in the actual gameplay are better than in any other RTS game I have ever seen, and in 3D! The sandworms, made very small in D2K, now often take up the entire screen! This game definately kicks ass, and is a must for all Dune fans.
