The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Installation (from ISO) worked okay.
Originally the game would not launch (on pressing "play") but I copied d3dx9_27.dll from existing WinXP install. Could then get to the main menu.
Menus display (albeit buggily)
Game loads (intro movie lagged a lot, so I skipped it).
What does not
Characters, environment, etc.
On the main menu and a few others buttons don't display their "default" texture.
Shaders appear to be rendered (including lighting) with some bugs, but textures aren't displayed correctly, and there's a lot of lighting bugs. Enough to be unplayable (although it definitely loads and you can move around).
Sound is the biggest issue. It always plays a loud static, making it impossible to realistically do anything. Even if you could get past the buggy graphics (and I doubt you could), the sound would make you quit very quickly.
What was not tested
Actually sitting and playing the game (which is mostly unplayable).
Gave it a Bronze for potential, but it's really not playable. Nearly garbage.
