Not always - it depends on the game. But in such a case, the best thing to do first is ask for some support here. Maybe it's a very common or simple DLL (like mfc*.dll) you needed that could have been installed using winetricks, and then the game would have run with much less hassle.
Besides this, you'll be using official Wine natively at this point. If it still runs slowly, then you can report things about the game (like terminal output) that is much likelier to help the Wine devs.
