Not really, I accidentally messed up a few things while creating the page.

I was never able to dig into this remake, the original Dune II was so much better to my eyes in every aspect. Even the graphics, though higher res, are very dull on this one. The sand, rocks, buildings, units, EVERYTHING is colored in shades of sandy tones. 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.

BTW shouldn't this one be on the Strategy category instead of Action?

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

My main problem with going back to Dune2 is only being able to select one unit.

Also, I do love the original C&C, so it was a perfect mashup from my point of view.

Default Graphic Issue

Love Dune 2 so I thought I would try Dune 2000 out. Well having somewhat of a graphic issue. Right 2/3rd of screen on left, left 1/3rd of screen on right. I have tried all kinds of combos to try anf fix this. I am running Vista with widescreen monitor. I am also running the game in XP compatibility mode as recommended although i did try others to see if the problem corrected. Any ideas?

What sort of issue?

By this I mean, have you got black borders on each side, or some sort of graphical corruption or stretched image?

The game doesn't support widescreen (as far as I know), and the game played okay on my monitor (22" widescreen, vista 64), just didn't fill the screen properly. Seemed to be in the right resolution though (When I did the review I also took the screen shots).
