    Well, as their bare minimum goal, sure. But I for one care more about just mere adequacy. To me, a better goal is near-equivalent performance vs Windows.
    However, Dirt Rally seems to overall perform better in Linux than it does in Windows, so if this port was at all done similarly, it should yield some pretty good results.

      Yep, I agree with this. I recently tried to install my original multi-disc UT2004 (has a linux installer on the last disc) and couldn't get it running on the latest arch.
      Ended up using wine and the windows Setup.exe. Running really well.

        Because I've heard they use a wrapper.
        I have heard the exact opposite and that they are strictly native only.

        Interview with gaming on Linux from 2014 =


        Is the port just to confirm properly a 100% native port? So, no wrappers (Wine, eON, Crossover etc)?

        This is a 100% native application. Just like our Mac games, all our Linux games will be 100% native. We never use WINE, Crossover etc style wrapper technology. Promise!

        We avoid wrappers because we believe they do not allow for the same level of platform-specific tailoring that native ports do, so they don’t often provide gamers with the best experience that the platform – and the game - can provide.

        Making a native application allows us to give the game that extra bit of platform specific polish.

          Not my observation. Frame rate much better and more stable for me under Windows 7. Perhaps you meant Wine, not Windows.

            I was going off of benchmarks. GPU drivers probably have a lot to do with it.

              It was gtx 570 with proprietary drivers. With switch to 1080ti, differences stopped being relevant, but for 570 it was significant. Perhaps on AMD situation is reversed.
