You can install unrar (from synaptic or from a terminal). Then, unrar it with


unrar x opt-maxpayne-r5.r00
Hmm... Hope this is not something illegal activity. :-k

This looks like the output from winrar when you split it into several different archives. Are there more files?

If that doesn't work then get WINE (makes windows programs work) and install winrar on it.
