Additional Comments

The show-stopper is the mouse control. In order to have the mouse working in the main menu, "MouseWarpOverride" key (HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Wine->DirectInput) inside the registry must be set to "disable". Any other setting will not let you start the game as the keyboard navigation fails to work once you try to start a new game. It just doesn't pick up any keyboard input when trying to select game difficulty. With the mouse warp disabled you are able to start the game fine, but then you will not be able to use the mouse to turn yourself around. That means you can't turn any corners or aim once you are at the extent of the mouse turn range. Unless the keyboard navigation is fixed or there is a way to enable mouse warp after the game is started, the game is simply not playable. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.
