What works

Installation and game play works great good speed with only minor stuttering of speech. I played a 1 or 2 levels and I played with various option like video settings and keyboard setting etc and they all works fine. in game cinematic sequences work perfectly

What does not

I think there is some cinematic sequences on start up (probably just company intro logos) but a simple hit of ESC exits them without any problems.


What was not tested

tested pretty much everything I can think of other than completing the game

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

it was noted in previous test a virtual desktop was needed to get the keyboard work but this is no longer needed and work well without a virtual desktop and works well in fullscreen. game fps is nice and smooth with no graphical glitch that I can see Other than the video sequences that are probably just company logos at the beginning (which have no bearing on any aspect of game play) this game should really be platinum as every other aspect of the game works perfectly out of the box (well at least for me it does:P)
