When I'm playing the game, the computer suddenly restarts. This occurs every 10 minutes while I'm playing. Please Help!

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 ->

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...

Sorry. I haven't had time to check Steam for a while;I should have some time in the next few days.
I have:
Windows 8.1 Pro 32 bit
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6850 @ 3.00GHz, 3000 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
Total Physical Memory 3.25 GB
NVIDIA GeForce GT 440

It overheats my pc too, I think it's an issue with shoddy work adapting the game for PC. I haven't found any real solutions. You can clean out the heat dissipating devices like fans and such, but that's probably not going to solve the problem.

Pretty sure it's NOT a heat problem guys, I just had my system professionally cleaned and checked because of this issue. Everything I could find said the same thing, "It's a heat problem, blow the machine out". Well, they did that, then checked my system and said that my SSD was failing and charged me $400 for replacing it with a bigger one, cloning the data, and cleaning the system. They tried the game for a few minutes and said, "problem solved". Guess what? Problem NOT solved. Still happens, anywhere from 10 seconds to 10 minutes after starting to play the game, and there's not a hot spot to be found on my system anywhere. My entire system (ASUS G75ZW) feels cool to the touch.

There is no need to touch anything. Just run a tool like MSI Afterburner that tells how warm your components are and watch while playing as shown here:

Thanks for the help guys, I updated my build and my problems are all fixed (:

What do you mean exactly by "updating your build"? And how did you do that?
