Summary

Great idea, horrible execution.

The Good

About the only good thing about the game was the original purpose -- to be able to drive around cities you create yourself.

The Bad

Graphics -- compared to other games of the time, the graphics in SoS were bland and low quality.

AI -- Enemy vehicles (in modes with them) were of the "drive and fire" or "drive and crash" school of combat, without any guile or intelligence seen in other games.

The Bottom Line

Unless it's in a bargain bin for $5 or less, it's not worth buying.
