Use wine-1.3.6 or revert commit f0b0c1b1dddf606177651deb45c0afd6259076aa as described in RegressionTesting wiki pageWorkarounds for known bugs:
If it crashed anyway (there will be clutch in the sound and no "Chapter complete" message will appear), run console blindly and type wineserver -k.
Switch off "Decals" in Options -> Visuals -> Advanced Settings
To navigate in menu use arrows to control selection, Enter on non-submenu option is "accept", ESC - "cancel". Or you may try to guess mouse position watching at highlights.
Play with Virtual Desktop enabled: winecfg -> Graphics -> Emulate Virtual Desktop and set size for it matching your desktop resolution. Also you probably want to disable window decorations. Enabling Virtual Desktop is commonly a good this to do, as it guaranties you, that application won't mess your current resolution up, if something would go wrong.
Disconnect your gamepad before starting a game or try joypad.txt file from comments below.
