The game works decently, but it has some problems.
What does not
The items disappear partially when picked up. Only the glowing effect disappears, the item itself stays on place. This happens both in single player and multi player.
The multi player is plagued by out-of-sync errors that make impossible doing long plays as after a while you get disconnected. I noticed this second problem playing coop with a Windows XP user in LAN, it happens to the player that is a client.
Later I also tried few servers on the Internet and it is the same.
