Thanks for your savegame. However, I am not able to repeat your problem here.. I played the game using a controller and with wrath option on, taking multiple forms, and killings stuff for about 15 minutes. No crash here
I started to re-play this game after finishing the recently released Warmastered edition of the first game. I can confirm that option 3 (wrath) reliably crashes the game, during transision of levels and randomly within the level, but I think crashing started after a certain point in the game, not right from the start.
