Catastrophic "destroy 1000 buildings" glitch?

Has anyone else gotten the "destroy 1000 buildings" achievement yet? I did a run-through on casual to get all the stars on that difficulty out of the way, and about 2 levels into my normal playthrough, the achievement popped. It appears that the game counts anything destructable, including the small stuff, because I certainly didn't destroy 1000 actual buildings (didn't intentionally destroy any at all).

Ever since then, the game has become unplayable for me. Have you guys noticed how the game freezes for like a second when you get a vehicle double kill, to check if you still need that achievement? It happens now and then. The game is now doing that for every single thing I destroy. I mean shit like crates, fences, palm trees... It's constantly freezing! If I fire off one of the special rockets that destroys multiple things at once, hoo boy... It freezes for a full 20-30 seconds!

Going to reinstall the game now, but I'm not hopeful.

A friend of mine just got the achievement and confirmed that the same shit is happening to him.

This might be the first time I bother harassing MS support for a refund...

The achievement isn't glitched, you will destroy 1000 buildings without even knowing trust me. The game classes everything on the ground as buildings pretty much. It unlocked for me on like mission 10 on my first playthrough.

As for the freezing, the game does freeze on me for 2-3 seconds before an achievement pops. So the game isn't freezing on me during me playing, only when an achievement is about to pop or the level ends.

I already have the achievement, I think you need to re-read my post.

Have you played level 4 yet, after getting the acheivement? That one is literally unplayable for me. Almost 100% constant freezes (until you reach the water part, then it's mostly fine).

I know, I've played through the whole game twice now on casual & normal and about to start expert for the last batch of stars and I haven't experienced anything of sorts since I unlocked it. Maybe the game is being glitchy.

Yeah I've that same thing happen where a game occasionally freezes as an achievment pops up no big deal.

I don't understand what's going on. I have it so bad that the game pretty much completely stopped being fun. Some levels are more playable than others, but pretty much every time there's a firefight in a town or village, the game just chops to unplayability and I just stop having fun when it freezes for 2-20+ seconds every time I fire. The sad part is that almost every firefight in the game is in a village, town or army base littered with destructable things...

It seems like my friend, who is having the same problem, isn't having as many problems since he's still playing it, and you say you don't have it at all. How can we have three completely different severity issues with the same damn glitch? If this was happening in other games I'd assume my HDD was dying or something but every other game is fine. And so was this one until I unlocked my 1000 buildings.

Edit: Actually, friend just told me that he's just suffering through it for some more achievements...

According to your profile you don't even have the game, but you're still telling me there's no big deal? Don't be a douche, man.

I do feel bad for you man. It is very strange that we're all getting different experiences with the same game. Did you end up removing and re-downloading the game? Any luck?

I've tried everything possible on the first console (reboot, reinstall, delete cache) and it stayed the same. This morning, I installed it on my secondary 360 and it's doing the same thing on there. At first, it would only launch as a trial and then it was back to playing perfectly fine but as soon as I got to act like a full version, it went back to being a chopfest every time I fire at something on the ground.

The only thing I can think of is that maybe you have a Slim 360? Mine are an Elite and the old white model.
