@shafiullah: Yes, you can run this game. On whatever settings you want. I maxed it out with constant 60FPS on a much older and weaker PC than this. Can confirm it works perfectly on modern hardware and software as well (i.e. Widows 10 won't cause problems).

Great game especially for it's time.

I think the system requirements listed for this are much higher than they should be. I remember this game running flawlessly on a PII 233Mhz without graphics hardware, so 500 MHz definitely can't be the minimum also the 800Mhz cpu (P4) weren't released until 2 years after the game so that doesn't even make sense being a requirement.

Wikipedia lists the minimum requirements as the following which seem more like what I remember.,,
133 MHz processor
24 MB RAM
SVGA video card
