Yup, best thing to do is install it and see if it works. However.... if you like older games do as I did. Build yourself a "retro" PC. Many people just throw a lot of great stuff away because they've upgraded and will be happy to give you old junk for free. I've managed to build two complete computers out of scrap and have enough spare parts to last me a lifetime. Nothing like the feeling of playing a good old game on an old machine.... yup, I know, I'm a nostalgic.
A superb old game. It comes from a time when developers took pride in their work and made awesome games that would engage the player in a way not many modern games can. Amazing story, graphics, sound and of course, gameplay. I have been playing this game since it came out and will probably keep playing it.
