Bought this game a few weeks ago. Downloaded it just fine but never been able to play because every time I launch I get "Unable to initialize the sound - please ensure DirectX has been installed correctly. My DirectX is installed correctly. All my other games work just fine. Did a Google search on the problem, but none of the fixes worked (nor did they seem to work for many of the original posters). I was hoping with this latest update the problem would be fixed. It is not. Really frustrated at this time as I was eager to play this game.
