I have an Ati 9800 pro and the game works perfectly on highest graphics, but yesterday I removed the catalyst 4.4 driver and updated to catalyst 4.5. (The readme that comes with the game says it works fine with 4.4 and above) but when I played the game using catalyst 4.5 there were a few problems. Firstly, shadows were not being projected by the lights correctly and the shadows flickered constantly. The other thing I noticed is that Garretts night vision was noticeably darker. I rolled back the driver to catalyst 4.4 and the game looks perfect again. My advice is to steer clear of the new catalyst 4.5 driver until its been worked out. Has anyone else had this problem?

It's a known problem, and is acknowledged in the 4.6 release notes.

A fix will probably be in the 4.7 release. The game notes were produced before these later versions were available.
