What works

Everything in this game works. Only sailing on the world map is extremely slow. Also fencing and other gaming aspects of the game run a little bit slowly compared to running it in Windows. Also the response to the mouse isn't optimal on the world map when I want to go in battle mode, and I click on the button with my mouse you have to wait extremely long to get any response on this.

What does not

So far I haven't found anything that isn't working in the game.


What was not tested

Completing the game completely. I'm still playing it, but because of the slow gameplay I can't play to long, because it gets a little bit irritated.

Additional Comments

I have given the rating bronze, because of the extreme slow-downs, the game is a little bit hard to play.
