Dune

Dune is a 1992 video game, based upon Frank Herbert's science fiction novel of the same name. Developed by Cryo Interactive, is the first of the Dune computer games. Dune blended adventure with economic and military strategy, and is considered by many the most immersive Dune computer game. Loosely following the story of the novel, the game casts the player as Paul Atreides, with the ultimate goal of driving the Harkonnen from Planet Dune, while managing spice extraction, military, and later, ecology through the native Fremen tribes. As the player progresses, his troops are equipped with weapons from "crysknives" to atomics, tap into Paul's latent psychic powers, and get acquainted with such characters from the book as Chani and Liet-Kynes.

Review by acecairo

Great Strategy with light adventure elements.  The first half of the game involves you having conversations with characters and doing certain actions in order to advance the story while mining spice and searching for villages, while the second half of the game involves you building up an army to defeat the harkonens.  I was disappointed by the ending, I expected a cool cinamatic or artwork or something for my hardwork and was dissapointed to see the same character animations of paul that are throughout the game, lame.  Still over all a great game with wonderfull music.
