What works

Was able to install and play the game at good frame rates and quality. I'm using the version which comes with the Unreal Anthology collection.

What does not

  • Crash occurred when trying to start a new game, until I added dmband, dmscript and dmloader DLLs to overrides list (Libraries section of Winecfg), as noted for wine 0.9.43 test results by anonymous user.
  • Mouse is messed up (cannot turn player around 360 Degrees as noted by other users) also gets locked into rectangular areas on the menus sometimes. Probably related to bug:
  • Gnome panels appear above game window, had to switch between video modes in game to fix it.
  • Messed up display (see through floors, etc). Turning shadows off seemed to fix most of these issues.
  • Splash startup screen appears under existing windows on desktop


What was not tested

Only played a couple levels. Did not try modifying default video options (beyond resolution and shadow options).

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Unfortunately the mouse issues make this game unplayable (or at least very very annoying to play). Upping the sensitivity allows you to turn a bit more before hitting the "wall", but after getting killed several times because of not being able to turn that extra little bit, I decided to wait till this is fixed before attempting to play anymore. Tis a pity, since it seems like this could very well be a Silver or Gold rating otherwise and I'm anxious to play this game ;)
