The game installs and runs fine.
What does not
What was not tested
The complete game.
I played that several years ago on Wine from Fedora Core. This year when I tested Wine from FC 29, it didn't display sword animations, which is very important in the game. Now I tested it in the most recent Wine version from Arch Linux (grabbed the sword, killed several foes in the very beginning and ran around Kaer Morhen), and all works excellent.
I think it really deserves Platinum rating.
P.S. The game is great, I value it not a bit less than any of the other great Witcher games.

If you are hit by bug #34052 (invisible character models), or flickering, set this key in the registry as a workaround (it happens on closed Nvidia driver, and to some on Mesa / Intel. It didn't happen to me with Mesa / radeonsi):
Another similar issue is bug #46553 when some textures turn black indoors. For now, install d3dx9_35 native override to work around that.
