The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Installing from retail DVD, configuring the game, intro movies, the game itself, sound and music, gameplay is fine. Ok.
What does not
Antialising can't be enabled (it is grayed in setup). The game may crash sometimes - once in three hours of non-stop play or such. There are small graphical glitches on specific fancy magic sparks. Also there are rare cases when the Scamps' heads disappear for a moment. This only happens in Sigil towers. When exiting the game normally it may sometimes throw out an error just after the exiting. This doesn't harm data or anything but annoys sometimes. The performance is not perfect, but generally it is okay.
What was not tested
Completing the whole storyline. Installing expansions or add-ons. Using a joystick or a gamepad. Uninstalling the game.
Using GeForce 9400GT and proprietary driver (190.42). Settings are 1024x768 with HDR enabled. Medium-High settings. High object drawing distance set. I have also enabled nice fog instead of stupid "distant landscape". The performance is just fine in this configuration settings.

A bug present (8128) renders the game virtually useless due to not being able to load or save the game properly. Keep this in mind if you intend to play as you won't be able to get very far or at least continue.
Bug 8128 is NOT a Wine bug. Please install an official patch.
