is it retail or copy?

dont kill me for sounding patronising but if it installs did u try patching it before u attempt to run it?

also when u say doesnt load, B&W has a part when loading where the screen goes black for about 30secs and it looks like its crashed.. this isnt yur prob is it?

finally... B&W is a useless game that was hyped to the moon and back. personally I think your lucky not to be put through the hell of hearing this constantly "we need more food" i almost threw the pc out the window and any other player of B&W prollyy knows what I mean.

well it couldn't have been as bad as dungeon siege. I think they should issue an offical warning against that game. (and I'm going to kick the person that gave me the game in the balls for it)

A complete waste of my time, and I was inbetween school and a job and was bored stiff, yet I still found it a waste of my time. I kept on playing hoping for it to improve.... THAT WAS STUPID!
