Almost no graphical glitches.

Everything else not mentioned below.
What does not
14-days trial registration would not work for me. After running the registration via VirtualBox, updating and running the game worked.
Upon logging in and starting the game, character movement is glitchy for about 1-2 minutes. (when walking, the character will be set back a few meters constantly)
Environmental shadows are somewhat glitchy and will sometimes disapear and re-appear.
In-game anti-aliasing setting does not work.
Sometimes crashes after changing worlds/locations via spaceship.
What was not tested
Fullscreen mode. (wine does not correctly handle my dual-monitor configuration)
Gold rating because despite the existing problems, the game is very much playable.
