If someone is having an issue with their video drivers, don't forget you can roll them back too. I'm using video drivers from three months ago and it works just fine on SLI NVIDIA cards.
If that helps at all.
Regarding the into scene with the plane, it only "crashed" for me in a sense actually just letting it play out fixed it for me, you could try that(as in after I skipped it, it froze and went on an audio loop but just waiting a bit made it work again)
I gotta be honest I'm not having much fun with it myself, I feel I take one bullet and my screen is going all black and white like I'm about to die. I'm supposed to have fun doing explosions and weird stunts, not worry about 3 bullets x_x. And then there's the upgrade system... Challenges with leaderboards?! srsly that is just the worst, I hope Cal will be able to fix up a gear mod option else I'll be dead in the water.
