This game needs an additional package to start the installation called d3dcompiler_43 which can be installed by issuing the command.
$ winetricks -q d3dcompiler_43
Winetricks can usually be installed using your distribution's package manager but should be updated to make sure you are using the latest version of the winetricks script using:
# winetricks --self-update

It appears to be related to DirectX 9 being used by the patcher. Setting the environment variable WINEDLLOVERRIDES=d3d9=b when starting wine/the game will fix this issue.
An alternative and permanent way of setting this is opening winecfg, going to libraries, scrolling down to d3d9 and setting it to builtin.
