Retail version of this game.
Probably everything. I have thoroughly tested the game and successfuly finished the career mode.
The game reqiured no additional dll overrides, no special configuration. All graphics rendered perfectly smoothly, with good FPS number. The game was playable in overall. CD copy protection required me to copy all CD contents to the hard drive, and mount the data as a CD via winecfg.
Tested features which work flawlessly include:
- Gameplay: Career mode (including all race modes), quick race mode, all menu interface, intro clips, cutscenes, shops, car tuning, game saving, I have not encountered a gameplay feature which would malfunction.
- Graphics: I managed to successfully activate all effects possible. All resolutions work fine, there is no video lag, and the FPS rate is great.
- Audio: Music, sound effects, ambiance, all work fine.
What does not
The game would randomly crash when saving career progress. This is very unlikely to happen (about 1/200 chance), and therefore does not spoil the fun.
From time to time, the input controls would lag for first few seconds of a race. This can be annoying in case of a "drag race", but this issue can be solved by running the game in fulscreen mode (and therefore I suspect this issue may be specific to my desktop environment).
What was not tested
I did not have a chance to test multiplayer.
