For those whose having the problem the game crash during story mode loading, uninstall the game completely, remove user setting in my documents. Re-install the game. wait after the the game completely installed, including the post-installed file checking. After that, don’t apply the fix files yet. Try to run the game first. Your game should be working.
I have done the same thing, and it works. During first installation, I applied the fix files first. After that, the game got stuck. Re-installed the game without applying the fix files, the game works perfectly.
