Let me first state that I'm running Windows 8.1 64-bit so these issues may not apply to you.
I cannot get this game to run functionally. I perused the discussion board and tried all the tips I could find. Alas, I could only get the computer to believe it's running but I never saw any windows or anything indicating that it was running that I could actually interact with. I deleted the .dll but, honestly, at this point I'm not sure if I want to bother more if getting it to function means deleting a .dll every single time I want to play.
This game may be very good and I bought it on sale so I'm not ♥♥♥♥ed off or anything. But as it stands I cannot recommend the game.
Much later than intended I attempted to solution provided in the comments of this review. It did not work for me.
