Your xbox is overheating.
1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. 3. If the two lights continue to flash after trying the above steps, you'll need to contact Xbox Customer Support.

The Xbox console is overheated.
  1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.
  2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating.
  3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.
To try to prevent this problem, follow these precautions:
  • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.

Best of Luck.

My xbox 360 it has the 2 red lights flashing


The two red lights means it's overheated. One let it cool down, don't turn it on until it had good while to cool. Two give your 360 more ventilation room. If that's not enough buy intercooler for it. Remember just give it some room to breath. Get more cool air flowing through it and it should be fine.

New game freezing about half way through


I don't think this is your xbox having a problem. This happened to me with Gears of War 2 once I just played over the game in the same spot over and over and it eventually stopped. This looks more severe for you though. It may just be a faulty game so best you can do is call the game manufacturer.
