Additional Comments

The game is from Gamersgate (comes without DRM). It runs out-of-the-box, without additional tweakings or dll overrides. Stability: no problems Performance: generally good, after extensive gameplay some slowdowns can be observed. Otherwise the game is playable from the beginning to the end.
