I had the same experience playing Regnum Online.  I solved the problem by 
temporarily disabling pulseaudio.

To temporarily disable pulseaudio:

    sudo mv /usr/bin/pulseaudio /usr/bin/pulseaudio.o
    sudo mv /usr/bin/pulse-session /usr/bin/pulse-session.o
    sudo killall pulseaudio

To re-enable pulseaudio after you've finished playing:

    sudo mv /usr/bin/pulseaudio.o /usr/bin/pulseaudio
    sudo mv /usr/bin/pulse-session.o /usr/bin/pulse-session
