Games that work

After trolling around here for a few weeks I thought I'd add my 2 cents
worth. I have found that Hellgate London and Crysis are both excellent
games that run well under Vista. I played the demos before buying the
games.

Any post-Vista game runs great, usually, or any game that's branded with the
"Games for Windows" monicer and has Vista on the box.

Don't forget to play Bioshock when you get the chance Bob, IMHO Hellgate and
Crysis weren't that great, but you are right, they do run quite well in
Vista. It's just the games themselves aren't all that exciting. ;)

Hmmm strange..seems Vista is so hit and miss with certain older games. I
take it you've tried the obvious IE updating drivers running in compat
mode, applying any available patches etc??

Oblivion semi works on my machine but it flashes green during the little
company movies, multicolor during the title screen and green again while
trying to play it.

I had a problem when I copied my saves from my XP box, it copied the system
configuration file and Vista did NOT like them at all. I deleted the config
files, ran the game again and it worked fine.

Oblivion stopped getting support right as Vista came out. It's like a
borderline game. :)
