What works

Game play.

What does not

Saving the game. Requires GFWL patch for Wine. See more info in "Additional Comments" below. 

PhysX effects. (hw accelerated) 

Securom which asks the activation code again in case Steam has been restarted since previous play. However otherwise activation works.

BmLauncher.exe does not launch from Steam. Must be started manually from /Binaries/Win32/

BmLauncher warns about old Nvidia driver, altough v. 290.10 used. PhysX can be enabled but gives warning that game play can be slow since hw does not support PhysX.

Camera goes into infinite loop. See workaround in "Additional Comments" below.

Additional Comments

Game play seemed smooth with a brief play at 1920x1080 with all settings Very High. Both Antialiasing + Ambient Occlusion enabled. PhysX disabled. Game's performance test results: Average 20 Maximum 40 See installation steps below: 1. Download game from Steam. 2. Let Steam install Net + DirectX 3. Winetricks dotnet20, dotnet30, dotnet35, gwf. In addition there exists a xlive patch for Wine by which also the game save has been confirmed to work. With the patch the game would easily rate silver.
