    on x64 version for me don't work just Dirt2 and 3

    GTA IV, COD BO, MOH, Crysis 2, Shift 2 works just fine
    I even not installed them on 8, just runned executable from already installed on other system

    The only thing what I do was installing DirectX and C++ Redustributable packages from web-installer

    I installed the newest drivers for my video card from Nvidia and both of the games i tried to play wouldn't start, I know people that are using ATI cards that games seem to work fine with any one using nvidia?

    If you're going to play games, why not play on Windows 7 instead?

    There are never Games in early builds of Windows, All the Apps are just samples.
