Slowly! HAHAHAHA

More seriously, first you will need an OpenGL video driver.
You will also need to compile the various libraries WZ needs: Physfs, OpenAL, Qt, etc.
Qt might be the show-stopper here.

Here is the Compile Guide: http://developer.wz2100.net/wiki/CompileGuide

It won't work. You (still) need desktop OpenGL, and the Pi only supports OpenGL ES.

This needs to be updated.

Latest Jessie Raspbian has better OpenGL support.

If you don't need to use Chromium you can turn the OpenGL support on in raspi-config.
Warzone2100 does then run, it is not perfect, some areas of the maps end up unlit.

Seems to be stable enough to complete a skirmish game.

Update
Latest Jessie has OpenGL support
Warzone does work sort of, only tried 3.1
ie sudo apt-get install warzone...

Need to recompile 3.2 for Pi?
