Ah yeah tried everything. Re-downloaded the game again to do a bit of testing. It will crash 100% on mission start on career mode playing Russian. And randomly playing German. Very frustrating the way you lose control of your computer over a game. Suffice to say that was my last time downloading it not wasting anymore of my time with it. Moreover it's a shame because I'm a huge fan of the series and I personally like Stalingrad over BLITZ and subsequently I'm not at all sure that I'll buy Kuban now.
