I've tried playing this game, but it has a nasty habit of just randomly causing my PC to reboot. No other games do this.

If you have a Sound Blaster X-Fi, this is solved by running the game with the --softwareaudio command line argument. (Note the two -'s.) The game is triggering a bug in Creative's drivers. Unfortunately the devs don't seem terribly interested in coming up with a better fix, but at least this workaround works 100% and doesn't compromise the audio quality.

Holy crap dude, you nailed it. Creative X-Fi user here. I even looked on their forums and didn't find much info. I'm going to try this the next time I'm in the mood to play it.
