Dune II Web Revival

Dune 2 Online offers a web-based version of Dune II, the seminal real-time strategy game based on the classic science fiction franchise. As noted on Joystiq, this is an authentic port, which makes it considerably less easy or user friendly than a more modern RTS game. Thanks Prosthetic Knowledge/GameInformer.
