Funny, same problem for me with that online version of Dune 2. I just couldn't play it like old times. I couldn't right click, left click my orders quickly, etc. Argh! I got spoiled by the newer RTS games!

It's funny how that works! People will often lament how little progress has been made in games (particularly RTS's) not realizing that there has been quite a bit, but it has been gradual. Then you play a classic and the stark reality hits home. Sometimes nostalgia can really play tricks on the memory.

Duke Nukem was such an important landmark in gaming that everyone should play it, if only to learn some history about our pasttime, but it hasn't aged all that gracefully.
