In very light testing, I didn't find anything important broken, but that probably means I just didn't play long enough.
What does not
Fullscreen mode on Ubuntu 13.04 was strange; the game wasn't given the whole screen, which was a bit awkward.
What was not tested
Anything beyond launching and the first bit of the tutorial.
To install uplay, I did 'winetricks uplay' (you need winetricks-20130617 or later for that). To purchase the game, I used a web browser, since buying in the uplay client didn't work in wine To launch the game, I had to do 'winetricks dotnet40' When the game prompted me to update, I accepted, but I had to go back to the email reciept from my uplay purchase of the game to get the activation number to paste in. I didn't like the funny almost-full-screen mode that Unity gave this game, so I did 'winetricks vd=1024x768' or 'winetricks vd=1280x1024' to give it a virtual desktop. After the game exited, I did 'xgamma -gamma=1.0' to remove the washed-out look from the game's gamma settings.
