What works

Played through the campaign and it's impressive how smooth it runs.  Didn't even run into any crashes along the way.  I can alt + tab without the game crashing (I've had that issue with other games).

What does not

The shift + tab feature for Steam doesn't work at all; nothing comes up.

Additional Comments

I really didn't have to do anything special for this game. I installed Steam with Winetricks and installed Crysis 2 from there. It's hard to explain, but the higher the settings you put then the uglier the game gets. If you put your settings way to high, even though your GPU should handle it, textrues and things will turn really ugly. But if you just don't set everything to highest then gameplay will be flawless. Video Card: Nvidia 970
