Could be a bad disc, or it's just your player that's not reacting well to that certain disc; try a friend's player and see if the game installer initializes, to determine if it's a bad disc case or your player acting up.
 
Look for smudges on the DVD and them clean if there are any.

As mentioned above, you can insert the disc into another PC so find out if the installer launches. If it does on that machine, but not on your PC, then you may have an issue with your DVD drive.

If the other computer does not recognize the DVD, then it is likely the DVD itself is damaged and you should go back to Walmart to ask for an exchange.
