There is a possibility. You need to install an application called WINE to run these Windows applications.

Check the App DB above and see if the programs you want to run are listed. If so, go to the Synaptec Package Manager and do a search for WINE and install it.

I think FIFA works with CEDEBA

I suggest you try WINE first as Cedega is a commercial implimentation of the WINE codebase. Be default, what works in cedega will almost certainly work in WINE.

I've had recent great success with wine using apps that once seemed impossible. You should try that first and then move on to cedega or crossover products.
