A neat adventure/strategy hybrid from Cryo, this game casts you as Paul Atreides, the protagonist in the classic Dune series by Frank Herbert. Although the game is fairly linear, there's enough strategy elements to keep things interesting: you must allocate your followers (the native Fremen) to various jobs, maximize spice production, and ultimately fight the Harkonnen with your armies. Also features stunning VGA graphics depicting passages of time. Easily one of the most graphically stunning games ever made, and one of the most unique. Recommended!

Note: The full CD-ROM version comes complete with video clips from David Lynch's movie based on the book, and full speech if you can lay hands on it.
