If I try to force running the game that error message appears:

Loading fame failed with error:

script link failed
Runtime error: unresolved import "SetFlashlightTint"

The game files my be incomplete, corrupt or from unsupported version of AGS.

Added in, but Zak 2 is actually unsupported. It's a 2.55 game, but it predates proper plugin handling, even though it uses the agsflashlight plugin.. the original executable may have been hacked to add it in, I don't know. Also, even when the engine was hacked to manually load in the agsflashlight plugin just for it, it uses an unsupported room animation format that the current standalone interpreter doesn't support, so neither does ScummVM.
