Game crashed on me no matter what on "ultra settings." I put them down to "high" and turned off Physx and the game ran great.
It's the texture settings. Put everything on Ultra but take down the texture settings to High. Or you can try with the 182.06s, that fixed the crashes for me.

OMFG I Love this game!

The SP is awesome, great to have guys you care about and want to level up.

I'm currently running all maxed and it looks and plays brilliantly. So glad i got this instead of FEAR2. (Only paid 40AUD for it too. )

Just the physics option in the menu then. I have since learned it is the textures that screw it up.

I have a 64-bit OS.

I have been told the new nVidia drivers solve the crashing on Ultra... try it when I get home.

Pre-ordered the game, I'm going to pick up my copy later today.
As you can tell by my avatar, I'm a fan of the game. :P
