Maybe not, but in order to troubleshoot a problem we generally need console output.

Have you tried burning the iso to a cd and running it from there? Wine does not do cd emulation, nor does AcetoneISO, so if the game is designed to communicate with a real optical drive it will fail. There's a more detailed explanation of why in another thread: http://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?t=12746.
