  Frank herbert's Dune


In the year 10191, the Houses Atreides and Harkonnen are fighting a bloody battle for control of the barren desert planet Arrakis, also known as Dune. Jessica, the Duke’s concubine, and Paul, his son and heir to the throne, are the only members of the Atreides family who survived the massacre orgainzed by Baron Harkonnen, with the covert assitance of the ruling Emperior.

During the two years you will spend among the Fremen as Paul, you must earn their trust and demonstrate your strength and courage in order to become their long-prophesied messiah, Muad’Dib. As their savior, free the Fremen from the harships of the desolate conditions on the plaent they call home.

Explore Dune, learn the Weirding Ways to fight the Sardaukars, harass the Harkonnens, sobotage their Spice factories, learn the secrets of the giant sand worms and use the mysterious substance, known as spice, to gain power to foresee enemy positions…

You must become a master in the art of infiltration and stike the enemy when they least expect it, as you prepare the Fremen for the final assault… their ultimate battle for Independence.


Frank Herbet’s Dune features a deep story line that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the epic journey. But is the storyline and detailed graphics enough to make a gamer look past the flawed game play and suspect AI? The answer is yes and no.

The graphics really are great but its difficult to enjoy them with glitchy lighting effects and at times sloppy game play. However I had a blast playing the game during my playtime with this game. I’m not going to write a negative review on it because the game is enjoyable. What I will do is warn you about a few problems that I encountered while playing this game. At times the application totally shut down and for no apparent reason and then at other times my entire system froze while playing the game. Another problem I encountered is that there is always a black box on the path that I am walking on that looks totally out of place. But besides these flaws the game still comes out with an 8 out of 10 rating.
