Hey I hope someone can help me with this but Halo keeps lagging or freezing.
I've just played Truth and Reconciliation for over an hour, Heroic solo and just got to the end of the mission (Literally the final cutscene of the mission) and it freezes. So of course rather than having being able to just jump back into the last checkpoint if you quit you have to restart it. Grrrh

Also it lags like shit on the main menu. My Xbox is also incredibly loud (And makes a gurgiling sound) when I play Halo CE:A and any other Original Xbox game but apart from that every other game I own on my Xbox works 100% fine.

I brought my Xbox 360 Slim in August and I've had no issues since. Granted I move my Xbox around a lot. Every few weeks I take it round to a mates house and we play there. My old Xbox which I had for over 3 years (Until August) worked fine as well.

So should I be worried about my Xbox or are a lot of other's having this issue.

Sounds like your XB360 might RRoD soon. I haven't had any lag or freezes.

Jesus I hope not. I don't have enough money to buy a new console and all these new games. I suppose I've got the one year warranty but even still no other games have these issues so it'd be odd if my Xbox was on it's last legs.

Have you tried installing it to your HDD?

No I hadn't thought of that. I'll do that once I get Truth and Reconciliation done.

My friend and I have EXACT same problem. Well, at the end just after recusing the troops. We both had the game installed, and played. When we got to the end part where we have to escort the troops out, we freeze. We were still able to talk on Party, but the game - or at least the visual, and audio - froze. No control whatsoever.

Twice.... and I feel like hating this game if this continue. It's one thing if there is just a problem. It's another story if the same problem happen at the same place and same time, twice in a row.

Edit:Well, my friend and I were able to finally complete the mission without getting frozen.

First, we both were on "old version". Don't know if this matter, but that's what we were on before going on to the cut-scene where we rescue the Captain.

Next - which we both believe may be the solution - is that one person stayed behind with the Captain at the prison cells. Other player obvious did everything else until reaching the loading screen, which then teleport everyone forward. Once you do reach loading screen, and teleport forward, don't move. Just stay behind and have the other player who is attacking finish the mission.

That worked for us, and I thought I share it here since some players were having EXACT same problem. Good luck.

Same here! So annoying! Now I have to start the level all over again! Grr....

It seems to be a very crashy game, the first time I booted it up it locked up the console when I tried to access video settings. It was installed to the console but the disc keeps spinning for a few minutes after it starts, compared to the few seconds of spinning most other games have. So I guess it's doing something weird and technical. Or maybe Saber3D is crap.

Well at least it's probably not my console and it's just a glitchy game then. It is running on a 10 year old engine so maybe that's it but it's still frustrating.
Hopefully Halo 4 will run smoother.

I had the same issue with another game a few weeks ago. I cursed the game but then had another crash with a different one. Turned out the harddrive was broken and had to be replaced. Don't know if this helps, but maybe it's not Halo...?

I'm glad I'm not having these problems with this game, but it happens all the time for me with Reach. I get the 2 red rings for overheating. I'd be pissed getting another new game that I have to wait to fully enjoy on my new 360, still got a Pro that's survived a RR and servicing, but the drive is getting sticky. I'd try compressed air and clean it out, that helps my Reach issues for periods of time
