Scarface on windows 7

I was bored so I decided to install a known Scarface game.
I downloaded it from the Internet and installed. When I started the first mission and the graphics was bad, just some black shadows..... . Is there any recommendation how to run scarface the Windows 7 32 bit?

When you say you downloaded it from the internet, do you mean you pirated the game? If so, we can't help you.

Without screenshots it's hard to tell the exact nature of your problem, so feel free to post some. Until then, try running the game in Compatibility Mode for Windows XP SP2: Compatibility Mode

Don't pirate games.

Did you try changing the Compatibility setting like I suggested? Also, you can try installing the game under XP Mode, since you have Win7 Ultimate: Download Windows XP Mode

Scarface game does not run on anything but XP
There are no patches to make it work on Vista or 7 to my knowledge
Because I really wanted to play that game on 7, but it doesn't work, only on XP.

It may not perform as well as it would under native Windows XP, but it's worth a shot - XP Mode is handy to have installed anyway, should you ever need it for something else.

Maybe, but doubtful as there is no 3D environment in XP Mode. But I have not tried it.
