Can't go more than five minutes into first level.

As soon as the truck is about to hit the bus in the first level, the truck disappears, all NPCs just freeze, and I can look around but do nothing else.

I also have not been able to play multiplayer, but I really need a way to play singleplayer.

I've tried it 4 times now. Sit through the intro movie, sit through the bus ride. Time #1 and 3 I had the exact same thing happen. Time #2 and 4, the bus crash finishes, then I'm told to grab a gun. Gun doesn't appear, so I can't grab it. No grabbing gun, no getting off bus. Argh.

I am getting this same exact problem. If our P.C.'s are able to process everything except this one part. we should be able to get refunded from Steam/THQ for producing a faulty game with many errors. Forum is filled with them. Hope they bug fix this quickly.

No, I don't expect a refund. It's not Steam's fault. I do hope for a quick patch. I'm also just happy to learn that I'm not the only person having this exact same issue. BTW - I've tried verifying the files - no luck with that.

I don't even have an intro movie, I got past the bus by doing this:

Set these launch options: "-windowed -high"
And when the truck came to hit the bus I didn't look at it, I looked in the opposite side of the bus. I don't know if a combination or just one of these things did it, but it worked.

I just discovered that if u force HF to play in/with (however it goes) DXD9 u can get pass the crash, but I ran into the missing gun problem. No sure if that'll help u but it helped me.

Okay I also found out I cannot change any graphics settings. Lowering them has no effect whatsoever, none of the video options actually work for me. If I could lower the graphics I might be able to play without stuttering or crashes.

Finally got the game working!!! Went into the configs and pretty much changed everything to False and set to Read Only. Installed the DirectX from my Black Ops disk. Re-updated my ATI Catalyst (even though it was already up to date). Re-Updated win 7 SP1. Game looks like crap (ATI 4200HD) but atleast it works now! Added this line to the GCEngine.ini NoHALSupport0=IDT High Definiton Audio CODEC under the *ALAudio.ALAudioDevice* section and now i have sound!

Awesome game so far Dont know why people are saying its a short game. played for 2 hours today and im only at the Tiger Direct part. Although, im trying to get all the Achievements and Collectables. (5/41 achievements, 17/61 collectables). Yeah i know i missed a bunch of achives in the beginning lol I usually print off the list so i know but my printer is toast.

FINALLY SOLVED THE MISSING GUN ISSUE!! What I did:
Reinstalled the game.
Did NOT update it.
Changed all settings to the very minimum. Disabled all graphical effects in Options.
Disabled full screen mode and changed resolution to 800x600.
Restarted the game and started a new campaign.
This time the gun was there after the cut scene. I was able to pick it up and exit the bus. Yippee!!
