Downloading, installing and playing. Game works, performance is horrible even with all graphics turned down as far as they go. I manged to play a level, but it was not all that enjoyable.
What does not
So far nothing I've seen just flat out doesn't work.
What was not tested
Multiplayer and voice communication.
There is a patch on the bug that some seem to have decent results from for the performance issues. I'm not really willing to recompile wine yet again, just to get one more game working. Giving it a bronze because I'd rather reboot to windows then play in wine.
