Hello
Delete any saved game files from your x box hard drive.Unplug x box for 5 min.
Plug back in and power up.
Try game again.
Chances are files have become corrupt.Also delete any files from GOW 1 and 2.

Game freezes up on 360xbox


If your game is freezing, it is most likely due to your game being scratched or otherwise damaged. Sometimes, a game can become damaged without you even realizing it. There are two ways to fix this.

1) (Obviously) Buy a new game.

If you don't want to go through the hassle, and would rather just get a fresh copy, go do it. Also, if your hard drive is relatively small or nearly full, I would recommend this.

2) Install the game to your hard drive.
The Xbox 360 has a feature that allows you to install a game to your hard drive. By doing this, the Xbox will run everything from your hard drive, which will make a scratched game no problem. You still need to have the game in the Xbox for it to start, however (anti-piracy measure). Installing is easy. Go to the dashboard, and scroll to where you would normally start the game from. But instead of pressing A to play the game, press Y on it and you should have the option to install it.

Note 1: If you can't install the game fully because it is so badly damaged, borrowing a friends or renting a copy and installing that one will work fine also. As long as you can start the game, you will be fine and freeze-ups will go away.

Note 2: If you have installed the game and it's still freezing, the problem is your hard drive. Some hard drives don't play well with some games, for an odd reason. To test this, try saving and loading the game from a USB flash drive. If it doesn't freeze, just continue to play on the flash drive. You can transfer all of data for the game onto your flash drive from the memory options in system settings.

My XBOX 360 is consistently freezing up and won't play


One thing to certainly check, is that the Xbox is broken, not just the game. Try playing all of your games, and keep in mind which ones weren’t working properly. Then, take those over to a friend’s house, and try playing them on his/her console. If they seem to work on one, but not the other, there may well be something faulty about your Xbox.
It is entirely possible that a scratched or dirty disc could be causing all these problems. So what to do about it? Well, the simple thing would be just clean off the disc. Wipe it down with a soft cloth, and give it another try. Another idea would be to rip the game to your Xbox 360’s hard drive. There is more than plenty space on it, and it should play more smoothly from there.

My xbox loads games but then it freezes on games that run on a disc


Hi, im not sure but are you playing the games of the xbox 360 Hard Drive?

If orignal discs seem to freeze in the drive then this could be a problem with the disc drive. You may want to get it replaced or if under warrenty get it replaced...

if the problem happens with games that run from your hard drive as well this could be a hardware problem.

Game freezes after playing for a while but no red rings appear


Games freeze for two reasons. Overheating and the hard drive locking up. If you have your games installed, you most likely eliminated the overheating problem.

Since you are not getting Red Ring, it probably isn't overheating. That leaves the hard drive. Turn of the console and unplug it. Remove the hard drive. Now is a good time to clean any dust from the connectors or vents. Reattach and play. Some games like Fable 2, Fallout 3, and others are more prone to freezing when accessing the hard drive that others. If it is freezing more times than not, you have an issue with the hard drive.

Every time i play this game it always freezing but when i play my other games they work fine


if its at the same spot all the time then u av a corrupt disc. the only choice you have is to take it back to the shop and exchange for another one. you could also contact the developers and they will sometimes send another disc to you but you have to send the old one back. check on the back of the box for details. if its in a cut scene you can sometimes cancel cut scene and it will be fine.

Why does My Xbox 360 Freeze when i play MLB 2K9


If it only freezes on that game, chances are it's the disk that's causing the problems. I've experienced that some xbox games act up if only the slightest scratch is on the disk. If there is, either take it back or pay a few bucks for Best Buy or some video rental place to repair it for ya.
