Additional Comments

This is a correction of my previous review; I was not running it in the installation directory, and if I do this, it now starts. (I feel like this should be a FAQ). When run, the game will behave normally or else it will freeze, usually quite quickly. How quickly is mostly a matter of chance, but on occasion, when it lasts long enough to bring up the initial city naming dialog box, it will allow me to dismiss the dialog, and if it gets as far as drawing my first unit and bringing up the tutorial message, I have the option of hurriedly dismissing the message. If I work fast enough, the game does not freeze and I have the opportunity to move my unit. Again, if I work fast enough, the unit will move correctly. I suspect similar results could be obtained on other behaviors, but the chances of even having the opportunity to test them (i.e. the game lasting that long) seem small. I will investigate Wine's output for this misbehavior and submit a bug.
