Default Technical Problems with MGS2: Substance PC DVD-Rom version.

Okay, so I bought a copy of it today at Big Lots for $6. On the reccomended settings it says:
1.2GHz Intel, Pentium or AMD
256MB RAM
Supported DirectX 8.1 compliant 3D accelerator card w/64MB VRAM
16x DVD-Rom drive
7.6GB free hard disk space

Well, my comp's over-qualified, on account of my having:
2.41GHz AMD Athlon 64 Processor
256MB nVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE video car
1024MB DDR2 533MHz RAM

With all that, I should have no problems playing it. Wrong, when I load the friggin game, the characters won't show up. All the people in the game are invisible. I have no fucking clue why the hell it's doing that. Is there some glitch that I should download a patch for, or should I just go back to Big Lots and exchange it for another game, like Project Snowblind or Brothers in Arms?

I searched nvidia's website, seems I already have the latest ones for that model.
> Install Latest DirectX
Already did, the game requires Directx 8.1, I have 9.0c.

Done, all the patches do is give the damn game ATI support. Also, according to some online reviews, they say it's virtually unplayable unless I have a controller; fortunately, I was planning on buying a PS2 to USB cable anyway. Still, if there's no way I can get this damn game to work properly, I'm just gonna exchange it for something else.

I should look for it. But I was gonna say, the only Konami game ports that have ever worked are Silent Hill 2 and 3. 4's trash that resets my computer at random, and I've heard MGS1 is unplayable.
