Everything that was tested: installation, the game itself, the map editor. However, the performance is not good for such game nor compared to Windows. Even though it's not a very resource-demanding game, it still constantly lags.
What does not
Nothing that was tested.
What was not tested
Online play. It's hard to find a match nowadays.
It took quite a while to understand how to install it. First of all, make sure Wine finds the CD (so it would be in something like E:\, not E:\h4 or anything). Otherwise the autorun will start, but the setup won't. Second, don't try to install it on non-EXT partitions such as FAT32 or NTFS. If you do, the game will install, but it won't run and will give you a segmentation fault. Then, you must not emulate a virtual desktop, at least smaller than 1300x1500 as that way the starting window will be too big to fit and it will close on startup. Other than that, everything works fine, except the before mentioned poor performance. That's why this is silver - it would be unbearable if it was a first person shooter, but as it is a slow turn-based strategy game, it's fine.

This game requires a crack to work.
Installing the patches is highly recommended, as they provide fixes for serious bugs in the game (not Wine related).
There are different patches for the different versions of the game
