Because mine freezes anytime I play it. I will be able to play for a while with no problems then it will freeze and continue to freeze every time I turn it on again. After a while it will work again then start on the same trend, it makes me nuts. I put other games to the test and they all work fine, so it's just Gears 2. Does it happen to anyone else? I'd hate this to be an isolated problem and a possible sign that my 360 is dieing. I don't even own the game yet I was using a friend's so I'm kind of reluctant to even buy it if it's going to do this crap.
Does this game freeze anyone's 360?
For the most part, if you're games keep freezing, your console is on its last legs and near a red ring. It's surely not the disc. And if you keep getting a disc read error, then you're disc drive or laser reader is messed up. 360 performance is wildly unpredictable.
Quick update, as i was saying before i was experiencing Disc read errors, on the odd part it was only when trying to play multiplayer.
It would quit loading the graphics, give me the error message, then bounce me to the dashboard.
One quick trip, explanation to the Gamespot clerk, and disc swap later i dont have the problem any more. Even whe nGears 2 was giving me the problem everything else i was playing (Far Cry 2, Fable 2, Saints Row, etc) wouldn't give me any trouble. So i took a chance and just swapped the disk to see if its actually my system.
So far everythigns been working but KairuDeLarge, you may want to give this a shot. Could save you a little bit of hassle.
"So far everythigns been working but KairuDeLarge, you may want to give this a shot. Could save you a little bit of hassle."I'm getting paid tomorrow and hopefully will get to buy my own disc of Gears2, hopefully this one will fare better for me.
It's still doing it even with my new disc, I just froze during a multiplayer game 2 minutes ago. This is so shitty, and now I get a disc read error a lot. If my 360 is going to break then just break already! At least that way I can do something about it and have it fixed and borrow my girlfriend's box until then.
