What does not
By default the game will load a black screen, complaining about GStreamer and MPEG-1. See below.
When the game does get to a playable state, graphical glitches occur: hills are essentially see-through and textures often overlap. This could be uncomfortable for those who experience motion sickness.
The game requires the LI2 Mod Manager with the "No Intro Videos", "Load Screen Fix", and "Windowed Mode" check boxes checked. NOTE: Both the Load Screen and Windowed Mode boxes need to be checked or else the window will freeze.
What was not tested
Playing through the game for longer than 30 minutes. I do not know if it is complete-able in its current state.
I am unsure if the version I had was a NoCD fixed version, but I was able to run the game fine from the installed folder.
