This is the GOG.com version of the game.
Gameplay (combat, inventory management, moving around, etc.)
Controller support (with workarounds, see the "Full Xbox 360 controller support" section)
What does not
What was not tested
The entire game from beginning all the way to the end. Testing is in progress as time allows.
The game tends to freeze when attempting to run the executable directly with "wine WayOfTheSamurai4.exe" so you will need to start the game by either double-clicking on the "Launch Way of the Samurai 4.lnk" file found in the same directory as the executable or run the following command: $ wine start.exe Launch Way of the Samurai 4.lnk

As of Wine 1.9.24, I haven't experienced any issues when using either PhysX 9.14 or PhysX 9.15.
I used the following article for some help with controller support: http://boilingsteam.com/a-step-by-step-guide-to-make-controllers-work-in-wine/
Even with the article's help, you will need to put in some extra work in getting a wired Xbox 360 controller to work completely.
