Review by unknown author

Just to get this out of the way, this game has absolutely nothing to do with the video game Dune (1).  Dune 2 was the first real-time strategy game I'd ever played. It drew me in with the references to the Dune series of novels by Frank Herbert and kept my interest with the fun of the game. Unfortunately, as RTS games go, it has not stood the test of time not because of graphics, but because of gameplay. Basic features you might look for in an RTS are not in this game. You cannot select multiple units, there are no shortcut keys, you cannot quickly tell a unit whether to go to an area or attack it. There is also a crippling limit on how many units can be on the map at once. Still, it's a blast from the past and worth playing if you can forgive these issues.

  3/12/2011 7:15:00 AM - siehjin hi, i'm new here, played dune when i was a kid and lately felt like reliving those old, nostalgic days. i clicked 'play NOW!', downloaded .NET Framework 2.0 and the emulator starter at the 'just before you play' page, but the configuration window for quality of emulation titled 'please adjust display settings' never appeared. now when i double-click the emulator starter, all it does is open a tab on firefox: http://www.freegameempire.com/... when i try to play dune2, it brings me back to the same 'just before you play' page and asks me to re-install the emulator starter that i've already installed! so frustrating! =( sorry for being a noob, but can i get some help here?
