It installs more or less without a hitch, although it keeps control of the CD-ROM when you have to switch, making it a bit of a pain to try and change CDs - to get around this, use a second drive or copy the contents of the disc into one of the WINE drive folders. It can be very slow in comparison to the Windows installation, but not unbearably so.
The game complains about a missing AVI file, but progresses nonetheless nicely to the title screen and displays it with no problems. The game plays very well indeed, although don't try it with 3D Hardware acceleration on, or it will just bomb out with an error message.
What does not
3D Hardware acceleration and the intro movie.
What was not tested
Game was not played right through, though there is no reason to believe that the game will bomb out afterwards.
It should be noted that on the rig on which this game was tested, Nocturne neither ran correctly on Windows 98 nor Windows XP. One up for WINE!
