Sound, cinematics, controller configuration... fullscreen and windowed (though I can't remember how to switch back to windowed... I've just been running in a virtual desktop since then). Initial scan of my system before the game runs detected everything but my processor accurately (and the game still worked fine even with this as an "unknown").
What does not
Changing the resolution about 1024x768 gives me the same screen but smaller, and i can't see my cursor. pressing anything brings me back to 1024x768, and I can move things again. Not a huge deal, but then... The game is essentially almost completely playable for me, BUT there is a very strange graphical problem I'm running into that makes it hard to play easily. When playing, the screen does a kind of weird picture-in-picture effect: the right half of my screen is normal, so I can see half of the prince. The left half is divided into two parts, showing the left half of the prince in a small window above, and th bottom half of the prince below (I'm uploading a screenshot of this). I have no idea what the problem is, and if it's only happening on my hardware or not. However, it is really the only thing keeping this game from being a silver, or even a gold (or platinum, really... I didn't have to change anything at all to get it working the way it is now, which is a HUGE step up from just one release candidate ago).
What was not tested
I did not finish the demo, due to the weird graphical problem.
Game was laggy, but going into graphics options and changing "special effects" to "low" made the game very, very responsive. In RC4 this game wouldn't even display after the initial loading screen, so this test was a HUGE improvement. If the picture-in-picture problem is solvable, we've got a solid app on our hands. There's also another warrior within demo that I tried installing, which gave me the exact same results. I may make an entry for it later.
