Additional Comments

Make sure that you install dsdmo and directmusic with winetricks, otherwise the game will crash when a cinematic plays (also why all the six y/o reviews say that it'll crash without a hack, or that it's garbage.) Be aware it'll change your screen resolution unless you use a widescreen hack or have a small monitor. Just reset your resolution when you're done playing, or make a script that does so every time you run it. A lot of the pre-2006 PC games have that problem in Wine.
