I registered just to say, you're wrong.

msconfig>boot tab>advanced options>check box 'number of processors' and set to 1. Restart, wal-ah, Scarface works.

It works for some people, it wouldn't work on my system though. Not sure if that's a 32/64 bit thing or what.

yeah yeah, I know it's an old thread, BUT, I'd just like to provide my experience into the matter.
It seems to be that this (despite being an extremely fun game (yet has no after-campaign 'value' )) is either extremely poorly made, or extremely incompatible. I have this game for PS2 and PC, and it runs fine on the PS2. However, try running it on the PS3 with the PS2 compatibility stuff (it's a launch day 60GB PS3 with a 500GB HDD in it (put in it by me)) and it runs really REALLY choppily.
I installed it on my laptop (current specs sheet machine, HP ZV5000) and hardly any of the game actually renders. I messed around with all the settings, ran it in XP mode, and it still wasn't anywhere near playable. However, when I ran it on my (sadly now dead) computer, which I had put a complete fluke of a graphics card in (only 64MB of vRAM, yet it could cope with aero and even the sims 3) and Scarface ran just FINE. Both machines were/are running Windows 7 Professional, and on the (now dead) machine I didn't even have to use compatibility settings.

Yeah, so on the dead PC (had a single core Celeron D, but as I said, it was running W7) it ran fine. However, on my new hexacore PC with W7, it doesn't run properly (same visual problem as everyone else has - I get the variant where every single plane seems to have no boundaries so there world is just full of walls at all angles). However, when I switch to the one core option and reboot, runs fine :/ Sure, at least I can play it, but rebooting just to play it is a bit of a pain when I just want 5 minutes of casual fun

I`ve have same problem.
But: with MSI ATI-radeon graphic card 256MB - works fine - But is a bit in slow motion
with Gibabyte nvidia graphic- 512MB card doesn`t work.
Every time when I wanna play scarface I need to replace the ati with nvidia graphic card.
So... Any solutions?
