Only if the game is purely OpenGL. Cedega and Winex produce mixed
results at best. You could run Half-Life 1 with a bit of hacking if you
wanted perfectly fine. The first time I played the game all the way
through it was in Linux :).
Good luck with DirectX stuff though since Microsoft is good at making
installing fun, and you do need Cedega or Winex if you attempt to play
those types of games...
