I make it through the opening credits and can look around the room a bit, but the game locks up my laptop when I look out the window (requiring a hard reset :( )
I've tried re-installing the game and directX, with the same results.
I think my laptop meets the system specs, but who knows...
Windows XP Sp2 w/ 512MB
ATI Mobility FireGL 9000 (I think thats 64MB)
