Having played American McGee's freaky version of "Alice," the animation does not compare. However, this game has a much stronger storyline and will please both action/adventure fans and Dune fans alike.
A faithful retelling of an epic story by developers who are obvious fans of Frank Herbert's epic works, Dune is a slightly above-average third person action adventure with some frustrations that shouldn't take too much away from an otherwise decent game.
It attempts to focus on stealth, but fails. It features poor combat, and there are not any puzzles to speak of. The game lacks any significant focus, and as a result, lacks any specific strength. Of course, the god-awful controls didn't help either.
The gameplay is bad, the "adventuring" is boring, the magnificent Dune story is condensed into something dull and lifeless, but it looks pretty enough, if only when showing the massive and frightening giant worms.
