Installing the game and playing game works as expected.
What does not
Sound, but installing the latest DirectX fixes this issue. There also seems to be problems with mouse movement when moving the screen left and right.
What was not tested
Install vcrun2005/2008 and the latest directX( to get sound working). You can do this by using Winetricks.

Better sound issue fix reported by Adys:
Crash on login:
Disable Steam Overlay Renderer (rm GameOverlay* in steam folder after opening steam, but before opening Worms)
Here's a guide on fixing any Radeon-driver related crashes with Worms Reloaded. This method will execute Worms with the r300g driver, instead of the default r300 driver. This method will (probably) not work for people with a HD2xxx or newer graphics card.1) Download the r300g libraries: www.mediafire.com/?3mz6711gu36u08j
For best results, as always make sure Compiz is off, and use the 2 winetricks fixes also posted.
