Install, menus, various video settings, gameplay--actual "games" (exhibition, franchise games) and not mini-games work well.
What does not
"Skill Drills" and "training camp" portions run, but far too slow to play, even on 640x480 low details. Menus are all really slow as well--except the in-game menus (meaning "pause" menus while you are playing an exhibition or franchise game, not the during "skill drills" and such).
Can't get it to recognize Saitek P990's right analog stick's horizontal axis, even with DirectInput registry key settings that were used with other games.
Progress bar on install stays at 0. "Auto run" splash screen does not display. Does not change back to original screen resolution on exit.
What was not tested
Used native version of "dxdiagn.dll" for installation, otherwise crashes on attempt to run AutoRun.exe off the game DVD. Especially annoying was attempting to change the video settings/details, because the menu animations were slowed to such a speed that it takes about 8-10 seconds to change one setting. My computer is an Intel Quad Core 2.4 ghz with an Nvidia 9600 GT 512 MB and 2 GB RAM. This is way beyond the old windows box I used to have that the game ran rather well on, and way above their requirements. There's something about the mini-games and the initial menus that isn't being hardware-accelerated, i imagine.
