Stephane Picq haven't done many game music pieces, but what he did was absolutely great. My recommendation is to listen to the tunes from Dune, or KGB. They're really worth of downloading! :)
- "naaah!" (by Zak, 3 Dec 2002) [4/10]
I don't think it's that good. Pretty dull in my opinion.
- "Dune has some of the finest Amiga music" (by skellington, 23 Jan 2003) [9/10]
Dune has a very individual sound, quite refined and cool sounding, with eastern rhythms and far-future desert planet synths! It's very french. Don't listen to him above, it's great!
n.b. The floppy disk PC version had a few tunes that don't appear on the Amiga. Don't know who has them though...
- "Wonderful" (by Blutus, 22 May 2003) [10/10]
Since this game only contains three songs, it's pretty hard to judge it.
Considering every one of the three is amazing, I find it hard to give it anything other than a perfect score.
Stephane Picq really managed to create a perfect atmosphere for the desert planet Dune.

- "Brilliant" (by luccashtear, 13 Jun 2004) [9/10]
I love the music from this game, and I am so glad to have access to it! Thanks a million!
- "one of the best amiga game music ever" (by deepblue, 23 May 2005) [10/10]
especially the "title music - wormsign" is a masterpiece. I am still amazed how this track creates the thick atmosphere of the dune universe so successfully.
- "nothing special" (by fintroll, 2 Dec 2005) [2/10]
I'm very disappointed. nothing special, even boring. I remember opening theme from Dune 2 - that was brilliant.
- "These tunes have really something" (by Tepe, 14 Apr 2006) [9/10]
Music fit perfektly in game. That´s songs make feeling that you are in the dune planet
- "Very original" (by Black, 16 May 2007) [9/10]
Yes i love this music, it give me strange feelings of the sand planet, be alone and sand everywhere. It is also bit nostalgic. Who played, knows. Thumb up.
- "Geez, some of your guys opinions are worthless" (by zzt, 16 Mar 2007) [9/10]
You should at least play the game Dune before you make any opinions. Especially when your comparing it to Dune 2. Both games are completely different and classics in their fields. Stéphane Picq's music seriously pulls you into the feeling of the game Dune, and i'd say it actually has a better soundtrack. Don't get me wrong, i'm a big Westwood fan (have the original boxed copies of 90% of their games) and Dune 2 music is very memorable. I loved the older tunes from Paul Mudra and then later Frank Klepaki (C&C!).
- "nice ambient style music" (by shenmueaddict, 13 Aug 2007) [9/10]
