Windows 7 Games that Work and Games that Don't.

Call of Duty 4 and 5 installed just fine.
Lord of The Rings Online Installed just fine.
Starcraft & Diablo II: LOD installed just fine.

They run great and have had no problems.

I downloaded: Burnout: Paradise The Ultimate Box from Installed and updated just fine. When I go to start the game it hard locks while connecting to the EA server.

One other thing to add. Xfire still messes up the graphics in Starcraft. I know this does the same thing on XP and Vista in both 32 & 64 bit. The issues continues in W7 :(.

If anyone wishes to contact me VIA xfire add: xniax1

Burnout Paradies works perfect with my computer(Windows 7 64-bit).

Do you have the copy from Fileplanet or the actual software? Cause I'm just thinking its the file. I am always getting files from fileplanet that are just straight up broken.

-Call of Duty 5 works fine now. Earlier it didn't, but after I reinstalled Win7, its working fine. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm now using PowerISO rather than UltraISO. God knows.
-Mirror's Edge requires Compatibility Mode in XP, and disabling of graphics. Then it works mostly fine, but there's no sound in its anime-like movies.
-Call of Duty 1, UO, and 2 all work. CoD 2 gives some sort of a graphics error at a particular level. Haven't found a fix for it yet..
-Sins of a Solar Empire works absolutely fine.
-Gears of War also works well.

This is all on Windows 7 7000 build, 32-bit.

Dawn of War + all expansions are running great.

I was not able to play Battlefield 2142 on Vista 64 so I thought I'd give it a go on W7 to see if I get the same issue.
