Looks fantastic with disappointing game-control,
This review is from: Emperor: Battle For Dune (Video Game)
With great anticipation did I wait for this game. On one hand my expectations were met, this is a fantastic game that looks great and has excellent RTS game play. There are only a few minor points that are wrong with it, but they spoil it quite a bit. The mouse cursor is outright sluggish, and no fiddling with my mouse-settings seemed to help. And when a lot of things are going on at the same time, it becomes uncontrollable. Since in this kind of game it's essential to be able to control your units quickly and accurately, this is an unforgivable problem. Especially since this game seems to be more tailored towards large scale battles than the similar Red Alert 2.
I didn't play any of the previous Dune games, but essentially this game is the same kind of game as Red Alert and Tiberian Sun. Except that the world has now been done in proper 3-D, which makes it look abolutely fabulous. My guess is that a lot of people will find this game very enjoyable, but the real fanatics, who want to play battles online, will find the sluggish control a real pain, if not unusable.
