Well the crashing on launch issue was easily solved by just starting Steam up as Administrator.

I cranked every setting the game had up and the graphics were obviously an improvement over the PS3 and ran very smoothly. But as with most console ports a lot of increase in fidelity just serves to highlight shortcomings, like buildings looking kind of blocky, jaggies even with 2x AA, and a slight bit of noticeable pop-in.

The settings provided seemed decent enough and keys were easily rebindable. There're also options to change the UI size and aim assist, so that's a nice PC touch. They've removed the option for realistic driving and the driving (using keyboard) seems much much easier than I remember. Shooting was comparable to PC versions of GTA.

I didn't see any GFMFWL and Rockstar's Social Club popped up but you can skip past it.

Overall everything went really smooth. I really didn't touch on any of the gameplay itself because the game has been out for 6 months, plenty of reviews dealing with that aspect. I don't know that I'd recommend it to anyone who already has it for consoles and unless you understand the gameplay (not GTA in 40s) I probably wouldn't even recommend it to anyone who didn't know what they were getting into. But if you're a fan of Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, or the Adventure genre you'll probably want to pick it up.

I've got a bunch of screenshots on my Steam account of the options, menus, and game graphics.
