    Some additional info, all other games are working fine - english . We have also checked the language setup of the console - english too.

    Hey I have the same problem. Just bought the game yesterday and called XBOX help...returned the game same thing....

  • NELL2008 Nov 09, 2008

    Just an FYI, tryed the game in a friends xbox and it works - everything is in english. Must be something with the console and the way the new game is formatted ??? Especially since there are no issues with any other games played on the same console.

    Thanks to THE MASKED MAN !!! Found the locale setting and changed it to english - all is fine now !! Crazy that this was the only game that ever had a problem and that 3 calls to x-box were SOOOOOOOOO useless. thanks.

    Microsoft is completly clueless....took me 3 days pleading for help with the idiots at Gamestop in UnionCity CA who said i had a HACKED xbox...then would not at least try to help me find a solution then they didnt even have an xbox 360 to test the disk or help with the settings! A game store with no game consoles to test stuff with!!!!! It took a nerdy filipino that happen to suggest for me to look at those settings after hours on the phone with microsoft....good grief!!!

Very interesting situation. It seems that maybe there was a serious of bad games. Take it back and try to get your money back, go somewhere else to buy the game again because that has nothing to do with your system unless its happening with other games too. If it happens with other games, you have a SERIOUS flaw and you need to speak to Microsoft about it. If it's just that game, well then just try to return it and get your money back and buy it somewhere else.

I'm losing my connection...

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link
