Simple answer, no.  MacOSX results may be vastly different than those obtained from Linux due to broken support in Apple's X11 product.  The only method you can use to determine whether or not a particular game will work in Wine for MacOSX is to install and run it.  Please also be aware that PowerPC Macs will not natively run Intel based programs.

Also, you may have better results with a Mac native version of the programs.  Quake and its ilk are programs that have such versions.
