About every third load screen between scenes it would infinate hang, lock up hang. I would litterally have to ctr-alt-del and end game process and wait a sec then restart to get by it. Then finally i got ot one screen it would not go past. The way i solved it was to turn graphics all the way down and then put the game in windowed mode...... So long as i leave it in windowed mode i can increase the graphics otherwise i get infinate load.
