I just played the demo, worked fine with wine
. Easy to install (I followed this small guide
) and lots of fun. The cracked version should also work flawless with wine, according to the Internet (not tested through). I would definitely buy a Linux version, cause I really enjoyed the demo. I won't buy the non-native version though. Wine is a work around, not a solution. Since there are great Linux games out there already, I rather spend my money on them. Like World of Goo, the Penny Arcade game or Heroes of Newerth.
BTW: This might be slightly off topic but check out Heroes of Newerth
: It's a great DotA clone, lot's of new heroes and features with a native Linux client. The company behind it - S2 Games
- has released native Linux clients for all their games and offered good Linux support. If you want to support commercial games on Linux, check out Heroes of Newerth and consider preordering if you like it, S2 Games is supporting gaming on Linux for a long time.
