Everything in Single Player, relatively good performance
What does not
Installer did not work.
The minimap has a strange outline, but this does not affect gameplay except by being uncomfortable.
Tried running the installer it in another WINEPREFIX and using another wine version and then it did work and installed without any issue.
What was not tested
Multiplayer (188.8.131.52 patch with XLiveLess.dll)

Games for Windows - LIVE does not work under Wine. GFWL components will crash any game that use the service. The only thing to do about it is to cut XLive out using XLiveLess Patch.
1) Download the latest XLiveLess patch from here.
2) Unpack xlive.dll into the game folder.
XLive is out and the game launch is unobstructed. Please note that from now on the online play via GFWL is disabled so as to prevent cheating.
