Super Dune is based on the popular and revolutionary real-time strategy game that created a completely new genre and cleared the road for later games such as Command & Conquer and Red Alert. Super Dune wasn't developed by Westwood that was behind Dune 2 but made by a group of dedicated Dune 2 fans.
The main differences between Dune 2 and Super Dune are modifications that were made to the 3 houses with completely new skills. The original houses haven't been left out so you are up for a few surprises in the game. Of course this doesn't make the game easier and therefore it's also obvious that this game was made as an add-on which is also normally harder to complete than the original game. So Super Dune should only be played if you really want a challenge and know the original game.
The game features the same graphics and sound so only in game features have been made and the original game stayed intact with pretty much everything else. A recommended game for all fans of both the actual Dune series but also to real-time strategy fans to see what really started this genre. Note that this game is of course freeware as stated above that Westwood isn't behind Super Dune but simply fans that got permission to make modifications to the original version.

Dune 2 was THE real-time strategy game that single-handedly created a new hot genre and catapulted Westwood to fame. Two years after its release, a group of Dune 2 fans created a special version of the game called Super Dune 2, which substitutes the original 3 Houses in the game for the Mercenary, Sardaukar, and Fremen, each with unique attributes (e.g. the Mercenary is invisible to radar, but cannot create any 4-block structures). The original Houses also do not disappear, but will show up to fight you from time to time. This is an ingenious modification of a classic, but recommended for experienced players only.
