Everything: Install, play, all game options
Installation was completely clean, with no Wine configuration required. It even put a proper, working icon on my desktop.
I fiddled with the graphics options some to see if I could create or uncover a problem, but as near as I can tell, all video settings work fine. Performance is excellent.
What does not
As mentioned, horizontal mouse movement is not completely free. However, it is still quite usable when the sensitivity is set high. This should not prevent anyone from playing the game.
Inside some castles there are graphical errors noticeable between the bricks (some of the dark "mortar" areas display as turquoise). However, I don't know if this is related to running under Linux, or if it happens under Windows as well. In any case, it's only an aesthetic nuisance, and doesn't affect gameplay.
What was not tested
I don't consider the mouse issue significant enough to downgrade the rating to gold or silver. The mouse control could have easily been designed to work the way it does under Linux. Just remember to max out the sensitivity and away you go!
