There's basically a series of options you can go through for games:

1) use a native linux client
2) run it under wine
3) run it under a commecial wine-based software e.g. crossover games
4) run it in windows from virtualbox (unlikely)
5) dualboot with windows for the game

There's not much else you can do, if a fix for a certain game doesn't work, you basically have to use windows.
