What works

Everything so far -- run the autorun exe (whatever it was called) to install.  Creates an icon on your desktop.

Game works fine. Full screen works fine. Played all the way through adventure mode and various mini-games.

What does not

The "3d acceleration option" -- I'm not sure.  It doesn't break or crash, but I can't tell if it actually provides any performance improvement when it's enabled

Slow animation in between levels: at the start of a level, the game does a big scroll across your lawn over to the waiting zombies where you choose plants.  On my laptop (with /proc/cpuinfo model_name of "Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2370M CPU @ 2.40GHz") the animation here is choppy.  However, the actual levels themselves always play fine, no choppiness.  So that's really another quibble.


What was not tested

The GOTY disk has some other bonus feature things on it that I have not bothered with.

Additional Comments

Ok, I put some stuff in the "does not work" section, but I am just quibbling and being thorough. As far as I'm concerned, this game works exactly as well as a native Linux version, except perhaps this version might require more processing power than a native version would.
