Personally, my attempts to install games in Wine were not very successful, even for games marked "Gold" or "Platinum" in the Wine appdb. AFAICs the trouble was with the open Intel video drivers not supporting the patented S3TC texture compression algorithm. People with NVidia hardware and closed-source NVidia drivers seem to fare better with Windows games under Wine. –  Marius Gedminas Jan 23 '12 at 10:33
