Gameplay: Game appears to play fine if you are patient with the loading bug listed here. Extremely patient. The game's bug takes a full eight to ten minutes before you get into the gameplay. It also needs to have other users test it with the 2.14 patch for OpenGL issues.
What does not
Installation: Installation was not able to prompt for the second disk as per the attached bug reports. It has yet to be tested under the 1.1.12 version of wine.
Loading: This is a show stopper bug for this game. The game suffers from excrutiatingly slow load times. As above, getting into a gameplay setting can take eight to ten minutes. Further testing will be conducted once this bug is resolved.
Graphics: There seems to have been a regression in the 3D graphics department as of 1.1.12. There are strange clipping faces and rendering errors. Again, needs further testing, but loading is the key problem thus far to prevent extensive bug triaging.
What was not tested
Installation: As of the 1.1.10 version of Wine, installation was unable to prompt for the second disk, crashing ungracefully. A workaround is present in the attached bug reports. 1.1.12 has not been tested yet.
Extensive Gameplay: Due to the load time issues, this game has not been extensively tested in standard gaming scenarios. There may be many other bugs that are prevented from being discovered as a result of the previous bugs. The good news is that the copy protection issue has been resolved as of 1.1.11, so further progress might be made.
Reviewed the guidelines for ratings and adjusted the rating accordingly. This game will run, and was playable, however suffers from several issues that need further testing and evaluation. The loading times are a show stopper.
