Crysis Failure to load the game dll
When I try and launch crysis.exe, I get this message. I've searched the web extensively and haven't found a solution yet. Thanks.

Redownload and reinstall, sounds like a corrupted download/install. If that doesn't work give us the exact error message.

The exact error message is plainly:
Error
Failed to load the game DLL!

I'll try reinstalling and tell you if it works or not.

So this is a retail version of Crysis with the retail DVD in the drive, correct?

Right, but whatever you're using to circumvent having the DVD in the drive is probably causing the game.dll error. There are many games that use game.dll to check if the game is in the drive, among other things. There's a good chance (not definite) that having the DVD in the drive with the latest real patch installed will work.

Go to EA and i'm sure you can get a replacement CD if you have the CD key and all the information you need. And if you have misplaced this then your only choice is to buy the game again.
