A friend of mine got the same problem. It seems to be a problem with Windows 8.
Following workarounds do not work:
- Delete dbghelp.dll
- Delete Options.ini or change resolution by yourself in it.
- Starting the game in Compatibility Mode (None works)
There have been people, who even tried to install DirectX 8.1 and that crashed the whole system.
This game does not work on Windows 8. PLEASE PATCH IT EA!
The same goes for FIFA 13. Fifa 13 does not work on Windows 8 either!
