It loads and runs if you have the real CD kit, OOB.
What does not
Mouse warping is an issue with this game, depending on driver.
This stops the "freezes temporarily each second" bug for some people whose mouse wants to warp. It only affects Wine 3.12 and above.
What was not tested
I didn't play it all the way through, but the mouse and keyboard work, as well as the opening movie.

Install the game
Configuring Wine for GTA:VC
Make sure the option "Allow the window manager to control the windows" in winecfg (tab "Graphics") is activated.
To kill off a running, but not responding, GTA (and any other programs/processes that Wine is running), run "wineserver -k". You may need to log in to a text-only terminal by hitting Ctrl+Alt+F1 (on most distributions).
