using Wine i assume?

BioShock - i couldnt get it to install right because of the CD checks,
CoD4 - installed fine, but i kept getting some error when i tried to start it.
Counter-Strike Source - worked perfectly fine. steam install is easy as pie - you need the right font installed though.

the rest i havent tried, but Steam games seem to work no prob.

Bioshock and CoD4 are available via steam, though. Is it possible that they might actually run via steam?

Bioshock - Probably not
Call of Duty 4 - I didn't have any success
Fable - The Lost Chapters - Maybe, but little community support
Frets on Fire - Theres a native linux version
Oblivion - Probably not
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Probably not
Test Drive Unlimited - Probably not
Counter-Strike Source - Yes
Day of Defeat Source - It should
Team Fortress 2 - I got it working, but its slow, major draw problems and it crashes after 20 minutes
World of Warcraft - Haven't tried recently, but others say 100% compatible, requires some work though.

I've seen CoD4 work, but it takes some modification (I think it required patches to Wine to get things working right) I linked to a video somewhere on this forum, do a search for it.

Big waste of money if you ask me. Crossover Games is better, but for something that may or may not work, I wouldn't bother.
