    I want to play this on linux. I've done my research and people says it won't work under WINE/PlayOnLinux.

    I think it is possible with Virtualbox with Windows installed but maybe... you guys know other alternatives?

    you thought about dual booting?

    best of both worlds: Windows for gaming, Linux for everything else! :p

    in a virtual box, your games will suffer a performance penalty because they are running in an 'emulator'.

    Yup!

    I allocated 2.5GB RAM on the VM and 256 video memory, still very bad performance o_O

    So are you going Windows only or will you consider a dual-boot?
