What works

The game seems to install fine, but requires a little work to get it to run.
You need to use a no cd/dvd-fix and disable the in game movies via game launcher

Setting the game to use ALSA sound is also a good idea, OSS seemed a little slugish.

What does not

The characters don't display correctly, you get garbage around them each time they move. The copy protection also doesn't work for this game, I got it running by using a no-cd/dvd fix, I had to disable the opening videos because they would hang and the game would never actually get to the title screen.

The game crashes in some places, not sure why, it seems at random.


What was not tested

Multiplayer/Lan games
The in game videos (they have to be disabled in order to play the game)

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

The game has serious problems with character animations, they don't seem to refresh the screen, so you get a box of "garbage" around the characters each time they move.
