Random Crashing/Freezing, anyone else?

Is anyone else experiencing random crashes and freezes?

I've been playing the game all afternoon and every now and again (in about 5 hours it's happened something like 7 times) the game will freeze up.

It occurs either when I die, or when i've finished the level and it's counting up my percentages, it will get through the first two, then on the third the game will hang, the animation is still playing, but no numbers appear, and all I can do is quit to dashboard.

When I die and it freezes though, nothing, I have to turn the console off.

And nobody better say my console is about to RRoD, it's literally only just arrived back from repair this morning, and if it's broken i'm going to flip my lid at MS this time, they already kept me waiting nearly 3 weeks for shipping labels due to a computer error. And I played 2 hours of RB without stopping so I'm hoping it's just wolfenstein. I remember Doom caused the console to crash sometimes if you try to quit the game.

I just had the same thing happen in the percentage screen on Ep 5 floor 4. The first percentage calculated and then it just sat there. The animation plays but no more numbers add up and I can't do anything to get out of the screen. So apparently your not the only one.

You've no idea how happy I am to hear that. I mean, obviously it's not good, but, I was so worried it got shipped a broken xbox after paying through the nose for a repair (it was out of warranty)

I've only experienced the freezing issue once, but again it was on the end of mission/percentage screen.

The annoying thing was that it was level 3-8 and I hadn't saved since 3-3! Bloody annoying

My game froze once when I died, so it just hung on a red screen. Had to turn the XBox off and on again.

Other than that, I've noticed it sometimes hangs for more time than it should after saving. Sometimes it's instantly back to the game, sometimes its 15 - 20 seconds later....

I think the game is just a little buggy - I wouldn't worry about your XBox red-ringing again just yet!

I get a little hiccup everytime I activate a secret door, but that's about it.

I disconnected from LIVE, and was able to finish the rest of the game without it hanging on the red screen after dying. But it still crashed on the percentage screen a couple times.

Oh well, 400 points was well worth an evenings entertainments even with the crashes, 200/200. Done.

it happened to me several times...... once mid level but every other time it was during the percentages. I took to saving my game right before i finished a level and oddly enough that helped..... it only froze once after i started doing that

Almost every 4 levels it would freeze up on the level complete screen and I would sit there for about 10 minutes just staring at B.J.'s manly panting before realising it froze. XD yeah it was a pain in the ass. sometimes I wouldnt save for 2 levels and then it would happen. -_-

Happened to me a few times on the stats screen after certain levels. Eventually, got smart and saved my game right before I hit the exit switch for each level. Thought my controller was broken for a second since the animation and music were still going.

it crashed once completely on me to where i had to shut down my xbox. it also got stuck on the percentage screen after i finished a level as well. it was weird because it wasn't really frozen as i could bring up my dashboard and what not.

my advice is to just SAVE RIGHT BEFORE EXITING THE FLOOR BY THE ELEVATOR
