iirc, you're thinking of Dune 2; Dune 2000 was the repackaged, glammed up rerelease of Dune 2.
I think he realizes that, but he's just making a comment on how similar they were.
Eh, I can see where he's coming from. From a pure game-tech standpoint, there wasn't much seperating Dune 2 and the original C&C. Though the graphics were a little better (and it had a nice UI), some of the vehicles were very similar, they had similar concepts, etc.
However, C&C was great! The cutscenes were completely awesome; it had a great back-story (I personally liked NOD's more than GDI's), and was just all-together superior. It was an awesome experience. I wish someone would just re-do the original, but with a less out-dated engine.
I thought Dune 2 was fun, don't get me wrong. However, C&C is what really turned me onto RTS. Dune 2 didn't do too much for me, Warcraft 1 didn't really pull me in. But C&C, man, I still have fond memories of that game.
