Try this:

which wine

Should return /usr/bin/wine

cd /usr/bin
ls -l wine

Should return that the file is an executable

-rwxr-xr-x root <something> <file size> wine


cd '/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/FarCry2/drive_c/Program Files/Ubisoft/Far
Cry 2/bin'
wine <name of Far Cry 2 executable>


That should start Far Cry 2.
