Entire game, including online features on max settings and 1680x1050 resolution.
What does not
Very minor graphical glitch surrounding cursor icon when it changes to another image (ie. mouse over an object to pick up or interact with)
What was not tested
Haven't played from cell stage to space stage yet, but each stage worked individually just fine.
On first run the game took a while to start so appeared to have crashed, but after that starting the game takes no longer then on Windows. Also, absolutely no patches were required to the files.
