What works

Starting a game

Actual gameplay seems to work completely

Same performance as on Windows (On my machine, at least)

It seems to be possible to complete the game, but I played only one hour so far

Saving and loading game states

Graphics and sound work just fine for the most part, minor glitches

Controls via gamepad and mouse

Setting up the game via wine sr2.exe --setup

What does not

Keyboard. You can therefore not press ESCAPE and go to the menu, which in turn means that you cannot quit the game ingame, you have to do it from desktop. Neither is it possible to control Raziel using the keyboard, so a gamepad is necessary.

What the option menu lists as "Fullscreen Special Effects", meaning blur-effects and stuff. Those aren't done via shaders though, since they work (on Windows) with my Geforce 4MX card.

Regarding sound, a "clicking" noise is audible now and then.

Some particles and light sources have wrong colours. For example, the Reaver is pinkish red when it is supposed to be blue, Raziel's blood is supposed to be blue but is orange and torches are blue when they are supposed to, well, look like normal fire.

When the same resolution as that of the desktop was used, it sometimes happenned to me that this caused a glitch that made the Gnome Panel visible on top of the screen and made the mouse unusable. Couldn't clearly reproduce it though.

Additional Comments

This game showed me how amazingly fast Wine is being improved. This game was tested before with Wine 0.9.3 and didn't work. I've tested it today with wine 0.9.5 and it started but was unplayable since most surfaces weren't visible, making the impression of running around in a huge, brown void. Then I updated to 0.9.11 and almost everything works fine now :) Thanks, WINE Team, keep up your awesome work!
