Check the video settings, and make sure that "Shadow detail" is set to high. Also, if the hardware DirectX level shown is less than 9.0, you need to fix it (since it causes other problems as well) by running the game once with the launch option -dxlevel 95 and then removing it.

I can't set shadow detail to high only normal. And still no changes.
