Game Installs through steam fine, once steam was setup correctly (see steam howto's). Sound worked flawlessly, video was choppy but mainly due to my slow computer.
What does not
The 2d Icons and images sometimes do not show up properly, instead showing up as squares of color. Also font was distored and almost imposible to read at times.
What was not tested
different computer/graphics card. Mine is a Gforce 440go.
small quality problems, but nothing that effected gameplay as a whole.
