Yep, lots of times.  Really fun game, runs great on Peppermint.  Of course, it requires a beefy graphics card, but it requires that on any OS.

Well, I, for one, didn't expect you to know what it was.  :P  Realistically, I think I'm the biggest gamer who frequently comes here.  I just happen to have this game in my Steam library.  :)

I have no idea.  You won't have proprietary graphics drivers for that Radeon in Peppermint 7, you'll have to rely on open source drivers.  Also, Linux doesn't use DirectX, it uses OpenGL.
