Cannot recommend any game that gets stuck in a .NET Framework failed installation loop.
For anyone that doesn't know what that is basically the game tells me it needs to install Microsoft .NET Framework version 4. Unfortunately the install always fails if you have a newer version of the framework (like 4.5) This causes your system to force restart in a minute. And when windows boots back up, you're greeted with a message... That installation failed again and that your computer is going to reboot in a minute....
To avoid the loop don't click the close button on the error message. Instead hit Ctrl+Shift+Esc to quickly pull up Task Manager. under the processes tab find 'Setup.exe' and click on that and then the end process button at the bottom of the window. Sure you wont be able to play the game because of the failed non-installation of Framework, but now you won't need to go crazy trying to fix your computer either.
Strangely enough if you boot the game directly from your steam folder you avoid this nonsense altogethor and can hop in the game.
