This game installed and ran fine on a Windows 7 system. The first time you try to execute it brings up settings, but even when you are done accepting them, it won't run the game. Just select your settings and then when you close that window, execute the shortcut again.
Graphics are nice and game play is a lot of fun. Involves tailing other cars, jumps, pit maneuvers...don't want to give to much away, because I think a lot of the fun in video games is discovering features on your own. I'd simply reccommend it to anyone looking for a fun car game.
