If you have not been asked these questions please answer them:

1.  What Linux distribution and version are you using?
2.  What video card and drivers (proprietary or open-source) and
version are you using?
3.  What settings are you using in the program for effects?

There is, for now, a loss of frames and fidelity for Windows games
that use DirectX functionality for video due to the conversion from
DirectX calls to Opengl calls.  The 'best' video card series for 3D
games is nVidia, the most current cards offer the most fidelity.
AMD/ATI is next, but there drivers appear to be missing some OpenGL
calls and are generally slower.  The worst reports come from folks
that use Intel on-board GPUs and their associated Linux drivers due to
apparent lack of hardware 3D support in OpenGL.
