Completely unable to start
I've got a reasonably solid home built machine:
AMD 965 BE 3.4 GHz (OC through overdrive to 3.8)
Windows 7 (64 bit)
8GB RAM
GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Intel 120 GB SSD.

But when I've gone to start up the game for the first time (and the second time) EVERYTHING is stuttering. From the moment the company logo comes up on.

Any ideas? I never have problems running anything else.

Its definately a driver issue if you are certain that even the logos in the opening are stuttering , im not sure but try installing all the third party softwares that came with the disc (if you have a retail version) these would be something like Visual C Redistributable package , Direct X Etc. ill check my install disc and upade you later , also is your rig a freshly built system or youve had it for a while and this is just another game you are installing on your machine ?
Lastly to be sure that this is not a hardware bottlenecking issue can you check wither this stuttering issue is there on other games aswell or not ?

I have the exact same issue as you do. Also figured it's a driver issue, but not really in the mood to rolling back to an old driver just for one game. Specs:
Intel i7 2600k
Windows 7 x64
8GB RAM
GeForce GTX 570, driver version: 296.10

If someone with a similar video card to ours could tell what driver they're using to run the game, I'd appreciate it.

I resolved these kind issue.
ex)
control panel (admin account) > service > windows installer(stop > active)
reboot steam > libraray >this app. then automaticaly insatll VC++ 2008 sp1 Red and start this app.

My hard is very low spec and strange, but I could start.
Macbook(CoreDuo 2.26ghz, gpu geforece 9400m, Ram 4GB)
bootcamp(windows7 home premium sp1 and Ubuntu)

I hope it's helpful for you.
