Problem running an xbox game on 360

Hi i bought sniper elite for the xbox from cex.co.uk and it was scratched to pieces

So i just put it in my xbox - the game loads up fine but as soon as i go to single player and it shows me some mail for the mission i get a static noise and then i try to start the game and it freezes

Im was gonna return ti but it seems they dnt do free post so im guna have to pay to send it back whcih is a joke

But on looking on various sites it seems that im not alone

Its on the bc list but some people say this

SE doesn't run on UK 360's. There's a couple of other threads in the forum discudding all the options you can try changing, none of which work! You'll get nothing back from either Ubisoft or Microsoft thet will be useful.

I have to keep the original Xbox for SE and the 360 for the newer online games. So you can run the same account on two different generations.

anyone have this game? i recently got it after much searching , to find that it freezes on my 360 elite , also on a 360 , but works perfect on a xbox , anyone help me ??

Done the update on my 360 and alas sniper elite freezes so wtf do i do now...



Anyone help

If it comes to it i might have to buy an xbox - if anyone has one for sale

yeah it dont run I have a mate that tried to get it to run but with no luck

Unfortunately just because it's on the BC list doesn't mean it's fully compatible - it means it will boot in a 360 and that's about it really. I know that sounds cynical but I've fallen foul of this as well, after a long wait PD:Orta (one of the best Xbox games) was finally added to the BC list and it works great...until you hit level three and it crashes every time. Personally I think if a game has a serious flaw like this which is known, no update should be released and it shouldn't be placed on the BC list.

lol, its alright then, im not selling it that cheap wouldnt be worth it after postage and fees, good luck finding one though.

You'd buy an xbox console just to play one game you have that doesn't work? :? How much did you pay for the game?
