Single player, everything so far, in a playable speed at resolution 1280x720 and optimal settings.
What does not
ÂÂRunning in pure wine :(
There is some grapÂhic corruption once in a while (specially for distant objects).
The game is not as fast as it should.
Introduction is very slow: After the text Ubisoft disappears you should press Enter fast, otherwise you will have to wait a while until the intro movie ends.Â
What was not tested
You will need some native DLLs. Go into the folder "Steam/steamapps/common/far cry 2/installers/". There should be 4 folders in there. You can either let Steam install DirectX and VCRedist or follow the steps in the howto of Far Cry 2 1.0  to install those via winetricks, I tested both cases. I let Steam install those programs. For the later option, you should rename or delete the respective folders so that Steam doesn't install it in the first run. You may choose whether to install Punkbuster and/or DotNetRedist. I'm not sure if the latter makes any difference at all. Rename or delete the programs you don't want to install. After the first run, rename or delete all of the folders in the folder installers/, otherwise Steam will try to install those programs every time you run Far Cry 2. You are good to go :) My system is Athlon X2 4200+, 2Gb RAM DDR2, Radeon HD4770 512Mb.  http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=14254

This notes was updated: December 15 - 2012
First of all, thank you for spend your time helping wine to get better,
These are just suggestions to make tests result more clean and more fast to be submitted.
Be sure that you have 3D support is working, you can check by typing the follow command:
glxinfo | grep "direct rendering:"
It's also recomended to install the following fonts: tahoma.ttf, arial.ttf and verdana.ttf.
The game shoud work fine. Any problem you can see the Troubleshoot notes and post a coment or submit a bug.
This is a known bug, until now we don't know how to fix-it. Just set AntiAliasing to None in game settinhs.
FarCry 2 crash when AntiAliasing is more than 2x.
AntiAliasing isn't working right on FarCry 2, the best thing is to keep disabled.
FayCry 2 randomly crashes.
This is related to the Bug #23045, until now, the best solution is to install secur32 trought winetrick. But even for some people, that solution doensn't work fine, the best thing in that cases is to lower the video settings, it seems that lower video settings has less crash, if that is your case, don't use anything beyond High on graphics settings.
