  • Summary: While some may take away from Dune 2000 a fleeting sense of nostalgia for the classic, most will invariably leave the game disappointed and wondering how a true sequel might have turned out.

You choose one of the 3 houses, get quests and fight it out on the dunes of arakus. The one knock is that is was done is DOS so it won't run on today's windows machines without a patch. You can get those on the internet. Expand

    Dune 2000 certainly got me interested in the Dune universe.

While not a great as Emperor: Battle for Dune, this game stood on its own and had so many wonderful ideas going for it. Using walls, pavement, airlifts for harvesters, starports and worms gave it its own character compared to C&C and Red Alert. The story was very good, and enjoyable. The gameplay, while not as refined as Tiberian Sun, was still fun and immersive. Luckily, water isn't a resource in this game, despite being super important in the books and movies. Expand

    Poorly received at the time.. i picked this game up as a kid with little to compare to and loved it. It holds up alot better than dune 2 - itsPoorly received at the time.. i picked this game up as a kid with little to compare to and loved it. It holds up alot better than dune 2 - its revolutionary inspiration but plays more like CnC or Red Alert 1 re-skinned.
    It's a solid RTS but was never truly balanced properly. It also released in a golden era of RTS games.. starcraft, TA, red alert 2. Which are all better titles comparatively.. but this is worth a check out if your looking for something else.

Togeher with AoE, Starcraft and C&C, probably the RTS game that had the greatest influence on the genre as a whole. I went back and tried Dune2000 the other day, and still found it enjoyable (which was a bit surprising since both the early AoEs and C&Cs nowadays almost feel painfully frustrating to play). Expand

    I was a big fan of Dune 2: The battle for Arrakis and was disappointed with Dune 2000. Do not get me wrong Dune 2000 was an ok game, but forI was a big fan of Dune 2: The battle for Arrakis and was disappointed with Dune 2000. Do not get me wrong Dune 2000 was an ok game, but for me that is all it was. Because of the way the units looked and the music/sounds. Also, the visual explosions/unit range/stats I was not happy with. If you ever find the time to play Dune 2 the battle for arrackis you would know what i mean. Expand
