Dune II: The building of a dynasty reviews

"As the granddaddy of modern real time wargaming, we can see that eventually this game would have had to have happened eventually. It is remarkable that first iteration of this genre proved to be such a classic. Perversely enough, the computer Al poses more of a challenge in Dune 2 than it does in Command and Conquer, althought we expect Westwood to remedy this in the much awaited Red Alert." - PC Powerplay (1996)
