Dune II

Amiga game review, ADF downloads, screenshots, ratings and insights
Dune II was given two names: Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty in North America and Dune II: Battle for Arrakis everywhere else.

As a result there were also two totally different box covers designed for the game. (More on that here.)

Dune II is often credited as the first ever real-time strategy game, and it is quite obvious after a few moments of play where Blizzard got its inspiration for Warcraft and Starcraft.

However, according to Westwood Studios designer (previously from Unicorn Software) Joseph Hewitt, as quoted on mobygames.com:
"A lot of the development and production side of the game was inspired by Populous and >Sid Meier's Civilization, two games that were played quite a bit in the office. But the most credit should go to a little known Sega Genesis game we were playing in the office called, Herzog Zwei."
Dune II's sounds, while of good quality, can become quite repetitive over time during a campaign. But that's about the only criticism one could possibly muster. Dune II is a classic and a lot of fun to play. The cut-scene graphics are excellent, too. Hell, all of the graphics are great.
