Good stuff, I remember this game. It's a wonderful technical mess of ideas with mixed execution but it's probably been the first open-world type experience I've ever had, opening my imagination to the possibilities. 1999 was such a wondrous year and 'age' for me with this, Freespace, Battlezone, AoE and AoE2, SimCity 3000, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Bullfrog's Theme Park, the list goes on. (Though there are many games of the era I only got around to many years later, including HL, Planescape, etc).
Definitely worth a look-see or at least Let's Play worthy, it's absolutely an entertaining game (for me) to watch people play, too.
Shame that David Bowie passed away.
