Installation (requires Origin to be installed and running), game play.
What does not
Application switching, surviving Origin crashes.
What was not tested
Full game play.
The game itself runs, and the graphics/sounds are flawless. However, even when installing from DVD, the game requires Origin, which does not install without workarounds (see https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=26175). Even if one can get Origin to work, it is highly unstable (at least on my system) and crashes rather frequently, which causes the game to stop and loose any progress. Restarting origin does not solve this issue, since after switching from the game to another application or the desktop, the game stops responding and needs to be restarted. Note that Dead Space 3 has no option to manually save game progress, instead, the progress is automatically saved at checkpoints every 5 to 15 minutes, i.e. all unsaved parts of the game have to be re-played after Origin crashes.
