Does anyone else's 360 struggle w/ regular Xbox games?

I know most of you are probably too busy w/ achievements to play regular Xbox games ....

But I was just wondering if anyone else had the same problems...

Halo 2 gets massive slowdown for me when any level involving fog is in play (ie Backwash, The Oracle)

Fable runs at an alarming 2 FPS (exaggeration). It's almost like my character is stuck in mud or something....it ran much better on the regular Xbox.

Ghost Recon is almost unplayable.

I can't see why the 360 would have trouble w/ regular Xbox games, and since I got rid of my crapped out Xbox, I have nothing to play these great games on. Oh well....

nope mine runs like a dream, all i can think of is update your emulation software, erm tidy your HD up a bit if its full...

Halo 2 bogs down on Backwash just as you said... its got to be the fog... also i lose some textures on Zanzibar and midship but nothing that affects my play like backwash

The fog is most likely part of the reason, and I think the Invisibility is the other part.
Me and a buddy did a test on Backwash, and most of the slowdown seemed to happen when he would grab the invisibility. It really slowed down during his fading in/out while having Invis, and we didn't have any real problem if no one grabbed it.
A level w-no fog = No prob w-Invisiblity
A level w-Fog (Backwash) = Problem w-Invis (at least in my test)

I could be wrong though

Re: Does anyone else's 360 struggle w/ regular Xbox games?

the only problems i have running xbox 1 games on my 360 is with Halo 2, as some of you already mentioned, it will occasionally get kinda choppy, usually on backwash when i get near the fog, but it will only last for a few seconds, thus the game is still playable

all other levels seem to run fine though
