Try redownloading it? Delete it off your HDD and redownload it off LIVE. Please update the status of this as I was interested in getting this game.

I've been playing it for the last 6 hours and haven't had a single issue.

as i wrote in the other thread, this happens to me too. in short; first it worked fine, now i can't even start it up without freezing. i cleared the cache, redownloaded it and i must've tried to start this up 15-20 times now and it freezes every single time.

as long as there is no fix for this, i'd suggest holding off on the buy button...

It happens when you have already played the game and turned off your xbox and restarted it. That is when the freezing occurs. He isn't talking about the issue where it freezes on the first mission. This is what happened to me at least.

Edit: Has anyone tried redownloading it to a flash drive to see if it'd work?

I turned my xbox off, and came back and played for another hour. I'm not saying you're not experiencing the issues, but it certainly isn't an issue for everyone (for those who are wondering if they should buy it).

The only thing I can recommend is maybe queueing it via xbox.com? That's what I did this morning, and two of my friends...and none of us have had any issues at all. I don't know if it's even possible for that to be a way around an issue like this, but it's worth a shot if you're having these issues and love Risk.

So far this game has locked/frozen/forced a reboot of my 360 no less than 4 times in the first half hour of play. Not happy.

I have been tempted to buy this game since release but the freezing issues have put me right off.

Same happened to me. I've played every day since the release with no problem probably about 15 hours into the game so far in the past hour I deleted game cleared cache rebooted and redownloaded. I just got done deleting and adding it through xbox.com. I'm just going to try again tomorrow and do something else.
