Holy crap you are kidding me! I remember watching my brother play this for HOURS on end when I was younger! Merci Abandonia. Nice review ultranewbie. I like...I like a lot.

Yeah - it's quite a cool game when you get into it.

To be honest, I never really got that good at it. Although I did learn some strategies, I never really worked out the best way to fight. Which meant, in levels where you are outnumbered it took me a little bit longer.

Yeah, my brothers were always really good at it, but I didn't really understand how to play, so I would just like, rush in killing everying and hoping to win

Just something to think about... this, not Dune 2, was the first real time strategy game. This game invented an entire genre.

Um... just slow down your pc. Open DOSbox 4 times.

This was one of the first PC games I owned. It was on an old 5 1/4 floppy disk. I used to play it on an old Tandy 1000 (no hard drive, you had to load Dos from a floppy evey time you booted up). I fould it a couple of years ogo in a box of university stuff and transferred to a 3.5 floppy but had the same issue with everything occuring at superfast speed. Looking forward to using DOSBOX to enable me to play it again!
I don't recall seeing some of those screen shots before. That must be a newer issue of the game, the one I had was for monochrome monitors only!
