4.0 out of 5 stars spankin' gorgeous!, 3 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Emperor: Battle For Dune (Video Game)
After reading some of the reviews here I was a bit concerned about the perfomance of Emperor. Away I went, after installing it, sliding all the graphics options down to the lowest and ran a skirmish game. I was so impressed with the graphics and speed that I went back and ramped them all up full! Still it ran fine and looked gorgeous! I've got a 700mhz athlon with an ageing geforce mx and everything looks peachy. It's difficult to stop yourself whizzing your view in and out of the battle field and round and round!
The AI in skirmish games is vastly improved too. You can choose what style you want them to play, attacker, competant or defensive. I've not really messed too much with this but in defensive mode they build walls around their bases and keep most of their units close to their base rather than sending them all off on suicide missions to mine.

The best thing about the missions is you can get reinforcements from friendly neighbouring territories, something that always anoyed me that you couldn't do in previous westwood rts games.
My only gripe with it really is the terrible acting in the cut scenes when you play the missions! They really are dire!
All in all the graphics, sound and game play is superb but the video scenes are pants.
