    Ive read a thread where somebody had minor video problems running FIFA08 so Im guessing FIFA06 would be better, but the best answer would be to try

    Got mixed reports of it under appdb. if a demo is available, run that first under wine.

    Not that I'm aware of. Usually demos are just missing things or don't have features activated/included. If the core program runs fine, then there's a high chance that the full version will run the same way.

    Many demos have huge problems running in Wine while the full version does not and vice versa. I believe it usually has something to do with the copy protection differences between a demo and full version. You can't really count on a working demo being an indication of a working full game.
