What does not
Online stuff. GWL is dead. If i am not mistaken EA killed online functions before GWL death anyways.
What was not tested
Anything online related.
Hardware tested on: Core2Duo E7200 4gb ddr2 Zotac gtx 560 ti Amp! I installed directx, visual c++ 2008/2010 and physx, which are mandatory for the game to run, plus nvidia proprietary driver version 340.76. Also replaced GWL with Xlive.dll. I have only one concern, is that my mouse sensitivity is a bit too high. The one i have has buttons to increase and decrease the DPI, CM Storm Xornet and the option on the menu does not seem to work. Have to decrease the DPI on the mouse instead. I am not sure if it is a game or wine issue. Besides this it runs perfectly.

The game requires GFWL to run but the servers are dead, to play the game download the xlive dll override from here and copy the files to the directory:
The multiplayer mode is not available due to the shut down of GFWL.
There is a workaround (see here), open a new shell and type:
while true; do pasuspender sleep 0.02; sleep 60; done
