What works

Nearly everything - see below. Haven't had any problem with the game besides the mentioned.

What does not

When you approach a save point the game has a pretty good chance of freezing, making this game frustrating to play through as it's BEFORE you can save. I gave up about two hours in.

 Very minor graphical glitches every once in a while, too.


What was not tested

The whole game was not played through.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

If the save issue weren't present then the game would have been platinum.

HowTo / Notes

Vertical Synchronization

if you experience slowdown in moving speed of your character, try to disable VSync in your X drivers

if your picture is choppy some times, try to toggle it on.

(way to do so is different for all drivers)

The movement of the main character is axtremely slow in comparison with windows installation. Timed missions are unplayable. Tried to turn off vsync. No iprovement. Ubuntu linux 9.04, wine 1.1.25

Try disabling strict draw ordering. Worked like a charm for me.
