Does this game run well on Windows 7, 32 & 64 bit?
What the title says. Thank you in advance.

I'm running W7 64 bit. Game runs well enough to be called playable. Actually running into some mean bugs but a few shrugs and they fall to the waistside. Playing with MotionJoy and PS3 Dualshock. The gameplay itself is working but the camera can suddenly fall victim to symptoms of vertigo; happens mostly during combat in small areas.

The game physics seems to be of issue for me. Some objects can not be pushed in a certain direction and whenever they need to drop off a platform they'll suddenly have unlimited momentum and shoot across the room. Fortunately these issues do not stop progression...just have to walk a little farther across the room to get your box. I did however find an almost game breaking box that could not be pushed down a filght of stairs...reloading the game 3 times seemed load the correct physics and I was able to progress (of course when I tried to video it everything worked).

The pre-rendered cutscenes work fine. The ingame cutscenes however are awful as the audio is not synced. Reason for the audio not syncing with the cutscene is the cutscene plays so quickly on fast computer hardware that the animations play faster than intended, but this is only during cutscenes.

If you do end up playing the game be sure to turn "fog" off in the video settings otherwise the screen will be so dense of fog you could cut it with a knife.

I'm playing it on W7 64 bit and I actually don't have any of the physics issues or fog issues, or anything of the sort. It plays just fine. The only problem is that I needed to get some special patches to get it running in 1920x1200 resolution.

That doesn't change how horrible the camera (and the controls) is in this game, though... and how much it ruins gameplay, especially when I can't tell what the hell I'm doing in some fights (hey let me finish off that ene--wait NO WHAT ARE YOU DOIINNNNNNNG). Unless you have a gamepad, you're probably going to find it hard to play this game... and even then, the controls and general game design feels dated. I've played it with keyboard and mouse, and I've just now reached the 50% mark. I think I've found myself cursing more than anything else. The puzzles have all been absurdly easy, and the only thing I've had a hard time with (besides the lolcamerandcontrolsissues fights) is the wall to wall jumping. Where I apparently might be better off trying to use my keyboard's macro keys than actually trying to time that♥♥♥♥♥♥ because it appears to be utterly random and/or way too tight.

I had a longer rant typed up here, but I'll cut it off and use it as part of a review later.
That goddamn FOG! Turn it the f*** off! I thought my game was ruined and I was like oh♥♥♥♥♥♥what a waste of money, tried turning the fog off and voila, I can see! It's a f&*^ing miracle!

Dosn't want to open on my tv monitor for some reasons. It force itself on the pc screen and even when the pc screen is off an error message appear when I try to open it.

I get a load of random textures glitching all over the screen whenever I move. W7 64 bit here, don't know whether I'm just doing something wrong.

im actually playing this game in W7 X64 config, but i saw a glith yesterday, i suppose that it was a random error and not a incompatibity

100% using Win7 professional 64bit. the only problem i got is the fog problem.

Like Ricardo Wesker i have Win7 professional edition 64 bit, and i don't have not a single problem with game.

Game length is the only problem for me :(.
