It's difficut to instantly distinguish different types of units, heck it's even difficult to differentiate units belonging to different Houses. The blue/red/green coloring doesn's stand out that much, unlike the original where everything was colorful and instantly recognizable.
I still prefer Dune II for the same reasons you talked about, but I consider Dune2000 a worthy remake. I have appreciated the different kind of missions, cinematics and the evolution of the strategic gameplay, I found it more balanced, challenging and fast. I'm sure you have noticed the changes they did to Infantry and Siege Tanks for example.

We have to thank C&C engine for this
