Retail CD release
Single player gameplay (played several campaign missions and started quick game, used "continue campaign" feature and save/load)
Sound (incl. voices)
Graphics at various resolutions
What does not
Some cutscenes did not seem to respect game volume settings and were extremely loud.
Encountered reproducible page fault crash after the cutscenes on my first attempts to create or continue a campaign. This was fixed after installing msxml3 (but not sure it's causal).
All files were copied from all 4 CDs into a single folder before installing.
corefonts, mfc42 (otherwise CD key could not be entered properly -- both required. Some CD keys may work without corefonts.)
wmp9, wmp11 (not sure if both were necessary)
msxml3, msxml4 (not sure if both were necessary)

2015-07-07 Admin note: the following tips were extracted from user comments made over a year ago and may not be relevant to current Wine.
For those having problems with the cd key and pidgen.dll, try using winetricks to install mfc42. It should at least get the install to start.
I also had to install MSXML3 to get it working.
