The only reason to play in SotS][ - is Mars 2 engine.
:(sadly, but true. atleast for me. Obviously its much less buggy now, than that was on release date,when I bought it. But game still is "frankenstein", and i doubt that it can be possible fixed by patches..problems is more deeper. I think, they(Kerberos) must just move on...to making, or threequel, or sots1-on-Mars2 engine remake, or whatever..
ps: maybe go buy the recently released OST, to make some extra cash for Kerbs eh :/
