Install on clean 32bit Wineprefix. Requires msxml3, dotnet2 and removemono via winetricks. Now that this game uses Steamworks instead of GFWL it runs without any problems. Performance is not quite as good as with Windows but I can happily run it on Very High as long as Physx is disabled. Phenom II x4 965 @ 3.4Mhz, Geforce GTX 660 2GB, 8GB (2x4GB) 1600Mhz DDR3. Nvidia 338.13 driver and default 3.13 kernel
