What works

I played first two missions. As far as i can tell, everything (except sound) works perfectly - lights, shadows, vsync, field of view, changing settings and etc. Performance is near like on windows, so it not good (this is a one of the worst ports ever been made)

Also FYI. Game runs with gallium patches even better, than on windows *mindblowing*. This test result is based ONLY on pure wine.

What does not

no sound at all (nor on wine, nor on wine-staging). a year ago i could choose my audio card in wine setting, and that fixed issue, but not now. don't know why.

Additional Comments

This game deserves platinum status, but because of sound problems it becomes bronze. Sad, but true :(

installing xact via winetricks seems to fix missing audio
