What does not
What was not tested
Multiplayer, non-Tutorial Campaigns.
In-game experience with controlling units is very, very slow, but playable if you're patient. Music is flawless. Video is good; assuming that sluggish behavior is related to crappy Intel "Bilgewater" (Blackwater) integrated video chipset. Have had problems with this chipset with other games. Will test again when I have newer video card or will see if applicable speed-fix improves performance and playability.
