So I've seen quite a few suggestions here and it's likely that most people have differing issues that would cause the games to fail to load.
I recently downloaded Crysis Remastered and could not for the life of me get it to work.
In the end, I googled how to find the log files and low and behold, found my problem in 10 secs.
You can see from the snip that my PC was missing a critical DLL in order to load the game, a quick Google lead me to a video on how to reinstall the D3DCOMPILER DLL and now the game is running.
If your game isn't loading, check the logs and you'll be able to work out where the issue is. Default path for Logs using the Origin client:
I got a new game yesterday for my birthday and every time I try to play the game it keeps saying "There is a problem with your game's setup. Please reinstall your game." Man, I just want to play funky little scary Alice in wonderland game

Thank you @danthemanmu ! This was never a problem previously, but for some EA reason, it is now.
Working like a dream after installing the DX files from the game folder.

@Bwguyer Just to piggyback off this, because this was exactly what fixed it for me. Thank you so much, I also had this specific issue with PVZGW2 but i see others are having it with other games.
So I was going through those Visual C++ versions and it wasn't working for me, so I checked which exact versions I had (search Add or Remove programs in Windows Search Bar) and I had some x86 versions and others were x64, and so I went ahead and downloaded every x64 that I didn't have . So now I have x64 and x86 versions (I dont think i needed the x86 but it is what I had by default for some of them. I'll attach a screenshot of what my Apps & Features looks like now that it is working.
