I had a lot of fun playing Emperor: Battle for Dune
I actually had a computer that could run it smoothly.
Plus it was also one of the last RTS games with FMVs and loads of 3d backgrounds that actually looked good!

I voted Dune 1, probably because it is newest to me. Downloaded it from this site a couple weeks ago. I probably spent more time playing and enjoying Dune 2.

Never really liked dune2000. Seemed to be too close to dune 2, only enhanced graphics for me.

Don't know the last two.

I loved Dune 2000. In fact I'm playing it at the moment.
I'm on mission 7 playing as the Atreides, my favorite house. I love their Sonic Tanks.
I also like the Harkonen Devistator (is that the right spelling???) and I like playing them as well. Later on in the game I always like to take over an Atreides Heavy Factory so I can have Sonic Tanks as well.
I never liked playing the Ordos. To me they are a fairly campy House, and I was never impressed with their Deviator.
A few years back I was able to download a sound file extractor for the game. I now have some of the sounds as Windows sounds.
The same program would allow you to insert your own sounds. So instead of the Fremmen saying, "It is done", I tried to get them to say, "I'll bury those cockaroaches", from Tony Montana of Scarface. But unfortunately I could never get it to work properly. It always came out sounding at a speed of 500 miles an hour, and you couldn't make sense of what was being said.
I also downloaded an editor to edit your vehicles, buildings, troops etc. I was able to make the Sonic Tanks move from the bottom to the top of the map in just a few seconds. I could also make them invincible, as well as fire as fast as a machine gun. The things I used to do when I was bored.
Anyone else got a favorite weapon???

I've played the old adventure game a bit (Dune 1?), Dune 2 and Dune 2000 and Emperor: Battle for Dune. And Emperor was by far my favorite. I don't know why, but it really clicked with me. It was a straight forward RTS game, but I thought it captured the Dune atmosphere well, or as well as a strategy game could.
