I played for a few hours and everything I tested seems to work, including gamepad controller.
What does not
Widescreen modes, but I'm not sure if that's a WINE issues or an issue with the game. I had to hexedit NFS.EXE to get 1280x720 to be available.
What was not tested
Online, as there were no servers with players.
Gold since I can't verifiy on-line play and I had to tweak it to get 1280x720. I have a late 2012 27" iMac i7, 24 GB, GTX680MX w/2GB, Cyborg RumbleForce gamepad. I turned up most graphics settings and it performed well (default settings were way too low).
