Emperor - Battle for Dune

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

Dune has always been a favorite series of mine - both the book and the Real-Time Strategy games. For the book, I played in DuneMUSH for quite a while and fell in love with the atmosphere. For the series, Dune always managed to introduce new features that other games just didn't have yet. This one is no exception!

Yes, there's the traditional threesome of powers, the "Great" Atreides, the "Evil" Harkonnen, and the "Insidious" Ordos. They just love that "Insidious" word :) There are also many sub-plots going on with the other factions, and you have to choose how to ally yourself throughout the game.


The movies and cut-scenes are great. They bring out the character of the book without being too confusing for those who never read it. The graphics in the *game* are just as stunning, though! The troops, the worms, the shadows, every detail really shows how much attention the developers put into getting this game *just right*.

Gameplay is awesome. You're doing regular RTS organizing and plotting and destroying, but you've also got many other layers now to keep you entertained and intrigued. There are the various alliances you choose to make or break. More worlds to explore. More weapons to choose from. It's really a game that you can replay over and over, and never get the same same twice in.

I highly recommend this to anyone who is fond of the RTS genre of games - you will NOT be disappointed.
