This is the boxed retail version of the game. An auto-updater is available, but the update servers are no longer online.
The installer works fine.
What does not
Running the game. When I ran the game from console, I recieved this error message: flip@Studio:~$ wine "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Need For Speed III\nfs3.exe" The instruction at 0x004a3aec referenced memory at 0x00000190. The memory could not be read.
What was not tested
The game itself, because I couldn't get it to run at all.
