After the game is installed do the following:

  1. Run the game, it'll try to install "Game for Windows" but it will fail. After that the game will crash.

  2. Change the wine version of the game to Windows XP (21690).

  3. Download from the web the wmp11 installer (64 bits).

  4. Install it how is described at askubuntu (consider using the right names in my case wmfdist11-64.exe for the codec and wmp11-64.exe for the media player). You have to install it in the game wine prefix with something like this:

    $ env WINEPREFIX=/home/YOURUSER/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/21690/pfx/ wine wmfdist11-64.exe $ env WINEPREFIX=/home/YOURUSER/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/21690/pfx/ wine wmp11-64.exe

  5. Install Game for Windows with the following:

    $ env WINEPREFIX=/home/YOURUSER/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/21690/pfx/ winetricks gfw
