What does not
Game can't reach Ubisoft servers and requires crack to play.
Using the mouse for camera control is glitchy (see additional comments).
What was not tested
Completing the game.
As mentioned by others this game required a crack to start, specifically the crack from Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands. d3dx9 was pre-installed via winetricks. Even on a Q9550 and GTX 460 the game has slowdown issues. Framerates are mostly playable with full details at 1280x1024 though, with occasional dips. There appeared to be a graphical glitch during the game's introduction where lights would shine through character models, however as I don't have a copy of Windows handy this couldn't be verified as Linux/Wine bug. Mouse control: Rotating the camera causes it to jump to a new position rather than slowly rotating (the framerate appears to drop slightly during this as well, but it could be an illusion from the jump). This could be due to the game's use of internal mouse acceleration (and a bad interaction with it), but I found no way to tune this to make a real test. Changing graphical or control settings had no effect.
