What works

Installation:

Set Wine to Windows 95 compatibilty  and the installation ran without a hitch, including the voice-over.

Menus:

The Quick-Start screen works well, all options from there work, and the main menu also works, along with the music. The demo gameplay also works well. Unlike when I tested this game last year, the cinematic videos now play properly, including sound.

Gameplay:

The gameplay is perfect, I've not encountered any flaws. Using cheats (which work) I managed to try out every level, and haven't encountered anything that wasn't working. Graphics-wise, everything is great 99% of the time. When it comes to using it in fullscreen mode there tends to be some problems, but some tinkering should sort it out. If not then running it inside a virtual desktop should work.

Audio:

Audio worked perfectly out of the box. However, some sound effects can cause the music to stop playing if you're using CD Audio. If you change the music to 'Synthesised' in the preferences then everything is fine.

What does not

Nothing much is broken, other than the fullscreen mode being glitchy. Sometimes if you put it into fullscreen mode the graphics corrupt, and on a couple of occasions X has crashed. However, if you play around by switching compiz off, and enabling/disabling the Hardware Acceleration in the settings this should be fine.

Also, there are scroll bars on the main window which mean that the top 5 pixels of the game aren't seen, but this doesn't affect gameplay in any way.

Additional Comments

Works flawlessly, the problems that are there don't affect gameplay at all, and are just minor annoyances. Just make sure that Wine is set to Windows 95/98.
