What works

Game playable

What does not

Since these issues are minor and don't interfere with game play, I rate this a platinum. 

Sound fails, but this is NOT a Wine issue, this also occurs on Win XP and higher versions. This game was originally designed for Windows 95 and DOS.

Game will not install from CD, again NOT a Wine issue. Read comments on how to install from CD manually.
