Binary Domain is a DirectX 9 game and runs beautifully with Wine 3.0 in fact it probably runs on any version of Wine. Definitely give the newest version a try as well. The only issue I experienced was that typical mouse-look problem where it was extremely sensitive. You can see it in the video. So I turned down the sensitivity in-game and that helped a bit.
