Sounds like a heat problem to me causing a system reset.

As Dr.Disaster said, it´s a heat problem. Check your GPU and CPU temperatures using HWMonitor -> http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor/versions-history.html

If nothing else, buy a can of compressed air and blow the dust bunnies out of the system - if it's a desktop make sure to clear all the fans (cpu, gpu and any case fans as well...) - harder to do on a laptop but at least make sure you have the airflow vents cleared...

Most probably yes, It happend to me on my old computer only while playing Battlefield BC2 and Medal of Honor 2010 (same graphic engine), the PC was really heating up on high details.

So try to lower the details for a while see if it stops.

I already tried lowering the graphics. It still restarted.

Make sure your system isn't overheating i.e. with a tool like HWMonitor named above. When it does overheat clean coolers, fans, air ducts and so on, try cranking up fan speeds or even opening the case.

If it still overheats you're out of such simple options and prolly need to face hardware problems.

Skippy - if you really want some help you need to provide more information than "it keeps restarting". We have no idea what you're trying to run the game on - how about providing some system information?

CPU, GPU, operating system, installed ram, desktop or laptop system, etc...
