    I'm not familiar with FIFA, but if it requires 3D acceleration then your best best is to try Transgaming's Cedega. It's not guaranteed to work, but it will definitely give you a better chance than plain old WINE.

    uhhh, you can find the version of cedega without the software that supports cd protection for free on the internet. all legal too! however this of course means most recent games wont play for a little more infromaion, see my post in this section of the forums titled "Mafia". its just a little bit down from this one. techie moe and a few others tried to help me out some.

    but other than that i dont know of any company or group that does a better job than wine itself at gaming. there is coadweavers program but its focused more tward buissness aplications.

    cedega is WINE with with DirectX support, so you will need it if you are to run heavy games like HalfLife2,

    Winex from cvs

    You can find a very helpfull guide here:
    http://frankscorner.org/index.php?p=cedegacvs

    I'm currently compiling winex(cedega) from cvs on a suse 9.2 box.
    When it finishes I'll let you know how I made out. Plain old wine also has some support for 3D gaming using OpenGL
    You will need to install the game through windows first if it uses the installshield.then copy the installed folder over to a folder on your linux hard drive that you have read/write access to as a user.Go to that folder in your terminal and type: wine nameofgame.exe -opengl
    I used this to run Soldier Of Fortune flawlessly in linux.

    Hope this helps some,
    Bob
