    Firstly...Unbuntu (linux) runs on OpenGL ,More PC games uses DIRECTX.

    My best guess is a DOS or Windows emulator,

    Wine is a translation layer (a program loader) capable of running Windows applications on Linux and other POSIX compatible operating systems. Windows programs running in Wine act as native programs would, running without the performance or memory usage penalties of an emulator, with a similar look and feel to other applications on your desktop.

    like i said...you can TRY...with WINE program,....But the clashing of DIRECTX and OPENGL doesn't help...

    What's the spec of your Computer....Maybe you can install Windows?

    You can't use Linux to run games?
    Linux is not made for games.
