As soon as I boot up the game, it says "this application has stopped working" and "executable has stopped working." The exact same thing that happened with COD world at war. I pait $50 for this game and I can't return it after opening it. What is the problem?!?

How do I patch it through steam?

Tried re installing ? Did any other game you tried to run or install had the same problem (apart from COD WAW) ?

where does the game stop working. is it at the screen with the logo on it being welded?.
if so there is a fix.
delete content.upk0 from the main install directory...
and hopefully this will fix it.

steam will auto update your games as long as there in the active install library.
if your still haveing problems then try the games help and support.

Try updating your graphics driver.

I updated them (HD 5870 crossfire) to the latest version, but it didn't help.

well i bought metro 2033 from steam as well and it worked perfectly. Try uninstalling and reinstalling. A big headache but I can't think of anything else.

it is very finicky about which systems it will work on. much like gears of war was.
gears, worked well on a q6600, 4850 setup but crashed all the time on a amd 6000x2 88gt setup...

all i can add is if you got it off steam try again. if you patched it then this time dont.

I'm going to take a snippet tool screenshot of the error message that pops up every time I try to boot the game.

Perhaps someone who is extremely computer-savvy could help me get this game to run.
