Installation works fine, including patches.
I could run the main menu, and play the prologue campaign to test the game.
To do so, zoom effects, tip advisors, battles, and on-line help runs without crash.
However I detect several graphics bugs.
Using no-cd patches to play the game.
What does not
The major graphics issues and bugs are:
Strange reflection of the sky in the soil, like a mirror, causing a major perturbation of gameplay.
Double corrupted pictures on screen when loads something.,
A little slowdown when the game loads units during a battle, but without causing major problems.
The air/land transition mirror bug cuts the scenario elements, which is very unjoyable.
Basically the main problem that avoid a best classification is the Direct3D bugs.
What was not tested
This game is playable, but have some bugs that should be fixed to have a real gameplay experience (and a have at last a gold classification ! )
