Awesome game, i have played it across multiple platforms, ps3, xbox 360 and pc. I got this as part of the new humble bundle, after reading that everyone was having issues playing the game due to "Games for windows Live" being a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ and closing down etc i thought i had wasted my money but thought i would install it anyway and try to get it working.
Turns out there is nothing wrong with it at all, i downloaded the latest GFWL from the xbox website and logged in with my xbox live acocunt details, loaded the game did the same in that too it updated GFWL and then proceeded to download my profile and wal'lah the game works fine i can save my progress and hammer the career mode. Thats all i wanted to do in the first place and it does exactly that. No modded files to add no files needed to delete for this game to work just make sure your running the latest "Games for windows live marketplace" and you should be fine. Im playing it on windows 8.1 x64 and its spot on in every way :)
I forgot how graphically nice this game was until today and comparing this to the console version make those versions of the game look like amiga cd 32bit games, the pc version is awesome and has plenty to keep me rallying on :)
Dont cry all those that cant and dont know how to get it working, you should stick to your xbox's and ya Playstations you dont have the minerals to operate a pc, and you lack the knowledge or intellect to search google or forums for a solution, it took me no time at all, just install ~GFWL from xbox website and then login and play the game :D
