Prince of Persia...bugs, delicious bugs

So yeah, I received my copy of Prince of Persia for the PC in the mail the other day. Unfortunately I haven't been able to actually get into it as it's had multiple game-stopping bugs. First its my audio driver (doesnt like it apparently), then the thing just keeps crashing/freezing, sometimes giving me an exe error (research says this is due to single core processors, but I have a dual core), then its the video driver (some common nvidia problem). Sigh. I seem to have fixed the first and last problem -- but it crashes/freezes on me all the time. Still waiting on Ubisoft to get back to me via email -- should be today or tomorrow. I cant even call them because their support line isn't toll free! Augh.

What tastes I've had of the game I've really enjoyed..but I'll wait until this gets rectified to post my thoughts.

Update: got back to me first business day. Testing now. :)
Update 2: still crashes, just less often. :(
Another email from Ubisoft soon, I hope..

First Tomb Raider and now it's Prince of Persia, it's a sad time for bugs.

Don't forget RE4 and Assassin's Creed..Ubisoft has a history of poor PC ports, but I was hoping this one would be different. It's beautiful other than these darn bugs.
