I really appreciate SUSD's reviews. They do a great job of highlighting what things a game does great, where the hurdles are, and what similar games might give you something similar but not quite the same.
Dune was one of those games I was interested in for years, but I'm also at the point I rarely get to play boardgames as much anymore.
