What works

The game plays back pretty well, and framerate is actually surprisingly smoother than under Windows. 

What does not

Sometimes textures can be in odd places (IE: Door texture on the floor). I even had one of the monsters with the legs on its torso turn blue when I was attacking it. 

Sounds also loop as well in some areas. Sounds played fine inside the apartment complex, but once I entered the hospital midway through the game, most sounds besides background music looped. Id hit a monster and its grunt would play over and over again unless I entered a new room. 


What was not tested

I did not get past the hospital because of the looping issue, which was very irritating. So, I played estimated 50% through the game.

Additional Comments

Game works fine up until the hospital. Once you get in the hospital, sounds start to loop and will not stop looping unless you enter a new room. Nothing past the hospital has been tested.
