The game installs out of the box, and gameplay is perfect, I completed several scenarios and a couple of stages of the campaing. Not a single stability issue, even on widescreen resolutions.
What does not
What was not tested
All was tested on current hardware + nvidia card. If you intend to play on a notebook using wine 1.3.19 or upper, please use virtual desktop to workaround bug 27028.

Age of Wonders intro movie is enconded with Indeo3.2 video codec [IV32] which can't be found in a standard wine prefix, in order to fix this, IntelVideo codec needs to be installed.
Google for a copy of iv5setup.exe and run:
When asked about which type of install do you want, select Custom (this is because Indeo5 codec fails to install and the installation is dropped), then select only, Indeo Video 3.2 codec and Indeo Audio Codec, press next.
If the installer asks about searching for backups press No.
This should fix it and the intro movie will show without problems.
