    I was wondering if we could start to compile a list of Games that work on
    Windows Vista... As this would make it easier for many of us..

    I have.

    Zoo Tycoon 2*
    Half-Life 2*
    Civilization 4*
    Battlefield 2
    Rise of Legends
    Quake III Arena***
    Unreal Tournament 2003***
    Oblivion
    Morrowind
    Black and White 2
    Warcraft 3**
    World of Warcraft
    Halo
    Ghost Recon Advanced Warfigher
    Sim City 4*
    Guild Wars
    Call of Duty 2
    FEAR

    *Problems, on my setup I had to run them into a window first to prevent them
    from crashing, I'm assuming a video driver bug not letting them pick up
    resolution details. Others have mentioned lowering the desktop resolution
    to the same as their default start-up resolution resolves it too.

    **Works fine with retail version, but latest patch breaks sound.

    ***Mouse acceleration seems to be turned on.

    That's the list so far. :cool:

    Starcraft is running good but patches need to be run as administrator
    otherwise you'll get an error.

    Add Fifa 2006. Works like a charm, but desktop resolution has to be changed
    to 1024*768 before the game is run.

    GTA San Andreas works quite well, not perfect, some gfx glitches with
    vertical lines, but runs without slowdowns on my system.

    I get kicked to the desktop and the client closes.
