I've just picked mine up, and on playing it seems to take an age to load each small section of land? Only on the first 5 mins of the game, picked up the horse, but each bit i move to freezes, the screen goes black and I wait for literally 30 seconds to a couple mins. The Wii keeps making 'dur dur click' noises too.
Every now and then the sound makes a massive hissing noise half scaring me and the neighbours to death, plus with all the dur dur clicking during loading the background songs skip/stop.
Is this normal? The game disc is clean and scratch free, I've tried the console on its side and flat, and its connected using the RGB cables into the front of the crt telly...
I'm worried that my new wii is busted! Just my luck!
