Dune is a thrilling tactical video game. In the role-playing game, the player plays the role of Paul Atreides. The game is an actual time strategy game in which the player can communicate and associate himself with the in-game aspects.
The plot of the game is set on a planet named Dune (also known as Arrakis) which is well known for the spices. The spices are the most precious things of the universe and a person can take command over the entire universe if he controls the spice. Also, spice allows people to travel from one place to another in the universe. The people of the planet are known as Fremen and are distributed amongst several tribes.
At the beginning of the game, the player needs to associate himself with people of the tribe so that he can establish cordial relationships with them in order to get help from them whenever needed. Also, the player can get the troops of the tribes to fight with him against the enemy. But every time, it is not easy to convince the tribes to shake hands with the player. Once, the player has convinced the troops to associate themselves with him, he needs to order them to position themselves around Dune. The motive of the player is to defeat the Harkonnen as he is also in search of the spice.
The game, Dune consists of several different levels and each level has its own complexity level. It is seen that the complexity level increases with subsequent levels. Furthermore, the player has his own strength and weaknesses. The game involves both, thrill and tactics. Also, the graphics are crisp and the sound part is done well.

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.
