darkness glitch on 360 version. can barely see anything.

I checked out a few videos on youtube to check out how some scenes played differently and I realized my game was glitched from when I enter the barn all the way to the final confrontation. I thought it was strange that I could barely see anything in the barn, but I figured it was because the door was closed behind them.

After escaping the locker you deal with the brother and talk to the person you saved in episode one I could barley see them and the cornfield they were in. On the approach to the house the same darkness kept the house exterior and interior barely visible. The same kind of thing happened during the fight.

It's not my brightness settings because when I increase it all the way to 10 the trees in the menu screen start to look washed out. Has anyone else run into this? It's appeared in both of my playthroughs.

i also had serious issues with the dark areas near the end of this chapter. I also had a glitch where none of the achievements unlocked and where the game at 6 or 7 times froze for 4 - 5 seconds. But i still really enjoyed it some how but i wont tolerate problems like these in future episodes.

Kinda late on the response but you say you increased the brightness all the way to 10. I was having brightness issues too and when I was playing with the setting I realized that 0 was actually the brightest option which is completely counter-intuitive to how every game has ever done this. This was on the 360 though, maybe it is different on PS3 and PC
