When the game starts, it may crash back to desktop. This is because it uses legacy physx software. Newer games use a completely different process. Just go here and download nvidia legacy physx software and you are good to go. It's a special package and will not override newer physx. [...]

I purchased this game and downloaded it via Steam. I was impressed with the install. Apparently Steam is aware of the old PhysX driver issues and included the install in the game install. At least it did for me. I am playing on a laptop running Windows 7. I am happy with the game and have made it all the way through, first time on normal and second time on hard. I enjoyed it. I like first person games with gore and monsters as well as strategy games. This fits in the gore and monsters first person shooter genre.

Bought this game due to a very low price, but was surprised by its well-designed environment and gameplay.
First up, if you're using Windows Vista and up, before playing this game, please install legacy Nvidia PhysX driver ver.9.12.1031, else this game will keep crashing on you, and may not even start up. Second, get a gaming mouse with at least 5 programmable buttons. YOU WILL NEED IT. Thank me later for this advice. Finally, in the main menu, you will find something about bonus codes. You will see a special access code unique to your copy of the game, and a few phone hotlines where to call to get the bonus (read "cheat") codes. With these codes, you will be able to unlock special items/powers in the game, such as unlimited ammo or enhanced special powers for some members of the squad. Well, let me tell you, BONUS CODES DON'T WORK any longer. Due to poor response to the game, the publishers are not offering cheat codes anymore. Don't google about them, because cheat codes are unique to each copy of the game. Solution is to locate a file of game saves that some individuals who received their cheat codes have posted. Now, the problem with that is that that will open up all levels of the game, and you will not be able to shut down the game mid-level, even at a checkpoint which is where the game autosaves, because then you would have to restart the bloody level all over again. So, think twice before you replace your game saves with the one that includes the unlocked cheats.
Setting up this game is super easy. There are some commands in the keyboard/mouse control section that are unique to this game. You will not know immediately what key/button would be the most appropriate to assign to them, but there's no need to worry. The gameplay does a good job of introducing those commands to you one by one in a phased manner. So, leave them at default, and when the time for their use comes, set them up as per your convenience. Although this is a single-person shooter, you will have your squad of 6 with you for the entire duration of the game...almost. An intelligent feature in the game will let you, the commander of this elite team of 7, possess any of your teammates and use their special powers to ease your way forward. While most of the times it is an option, sometimes it will become a necessity. But it is a lot of fun nevertheless. Game's story is jumbled. I stopped paying attention to it midway, and focused on just enjoying the environment and well-crafted fighting scenes. AI of the game is idiotic at times, but mostly in terms of design and not gameplay, because of which you will find some levels to be extremely difficult to cross. It will irritate you and you may even decide to discontinue playing this game. But you will come back to it eventually.
If you are a fan of horror first-person shooters, this is one game not to be missed. It's a shame, it didn't too well upon release.

This is a wildly underrated game. It is tons of fun to play, with interesting powers, fund characters, and an interesting story as a backdrop to one of the most fun shooters I have played in a long time.

It gets through the opening introduction and crashes at the same time every time. Reinstalling it and re-downloading it didn't fix the problem either. I'm attempting to run it on windows 7 which I think is the problem.
