What works

-Installation (only worked for me if I copied the content of all the cds into one folder. Otherwise wine wouldn't notice that I changed the CD.) -Gameplay works pretty fine -Changing options in the menu works -Saving/Loading

What does not

-Cut Scenes have no sounds -Cut scenes are not interruptible, what is very annoying in connection to the fact mentioned above -Voices and music is missing in the gameplay, ambient sounds like arrows and swords are present -I wasn't able to choose 1280*1024 as resolution


What was not tested

-Multiplayer -level after tutorial

Additional Comments

I couldnt' decide if I should choose silver or bronze. I took silver, because the game itself runs pretty fine, except the things mentioned in the test date. It's still good fun to play this game under these circumstances although a lot of atmosphere is killed.
