Call of Juarez BiB - I got a scratched copy

So I decide to start playing Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood yesterday. Have had the copy for months now. Game was still shrink-wrapped but not entirely sure where I got this. Probably from Tesco, a local supermarket. First thing I did  with it, as I do with  all my  Xbox 360 games, is to install it on the HD. I am just too old for the helicopter sound. Install stopped at 4% and said that disc is dirty and so on. Dang, I just took the brand new disc out of the box. For sure didn't move Xbox or anything for the disc to get scratched. OK fair enough. I give the game a change by  playing it without installing. All work fine until today. On start of Chapter IV - ACT II. I get greeted with this: 

 
And no matter what I try it won't go past this. Game is unplayable. When I check the disc bit better there seems to be a tiny scratch that might cause this. Freaking annoying. Brand new shrink-wrapped game and already scratched.  Will try to take game to Gamestation next week and see if they can sort this with their scratch remover tool. Not the end of the world if not because this doesn't seem to be too good game.
