What works

Installation and gameplay (off and on-line) seem to work.  I've not taken the time to play through the whole thing, though.

Cinematics also seem to work nicely.

What does not

Avoid windowed mode - it's still pretty broken at this point:

Windowed mode has cursor and sizing issues (as tested under KDE4.5 RC3).  The in-game cursor does not sync with the desktop cursor.  You may be able to workaround this by restricting the cursor to the window.

Moving the window while in windowed mode will crash the game.

Starting the game in windowed mode will generally result in the window being minimized or non-visible until you click it.  It may crash randomly when you first activate it.

Resizing the window via the game options does not always work.  And, when you play next the window may default to a smaller size though the engine is still rendering at a larger size.

I just played full screen instead.  I did not notice any issues when playing full-screen, and the speed was excellent.



What was not tested

Didn't find the first scenario very fun, so I didn't play through any further.  :)
