Installing the game
This is done through Steam and works perfectly.
Rating: Platinum (Works out of the box.)
Running the game
Due to an error with MPEG cutscenes, the game does not start immediately so you have to "skip" the playing videos by pressing return or the left-mouse button. Alternatively as a work around you can delete the movie files from the game.
Rating: Gold (Works out of the box, with a small issue with workaround)
Playing the game
Everything just works out of the box with no overrides required.
What was tested:
What does not
Only thing identified not working was the MPEG cutscenes.
What was not tested
Extended playing was not tested.
Would be rated Platinum if issue with MPEG was resolved. Specifications: Intel Core i7-3960X @ 3.3GHz 16GB RAM Nvidia GTX 580 1.5GB

Apparently if you install "dinput" and/or "dinput8" (fairly certain it's dinput8 though), that will fix the issue where you get "ghost" input that makes you constantly turn and run forward (at least that's what it was for me).
