View Full Version : SCDA on XBOX 360: Single Player: Freezes at beginning of Level Three (every time)

Hello,

I have found a problem that I can definitely reproduce, and won't let me progress past the very beginning of level 3 (the JBA base) in single player mode. I'm using XBOX 360.

Basically, the level starts, and Sam Fisher is standing before a small flight of stairs and the guy he just rescued from jail is standing above him, waiting to give him a tour. At some point in the first, say, 15 seconds of the level, the game completely freezes and I cannot proceed. Sometimes it happens immediately, sometimes I am able to walk about ten steps forward. But in no case have I been able to get more than 15 seconds into this level. When it freezes, sometimes it freezes and all the sound stops, and on one occasion the screen went to black-and-white static fuzz immediately. In all cases, the only way out is to hit the power button on the xbox and restart. I have done this about 10 times now and it fails each time.

Since this problem occurs at the beginning of the level, I have tried to load the game both from my last checkpoint (at the beginning of the level) and by loading the level itself, and neither option works better than the other.

This problem just happened last night (11/2). I had just downloaded a software patch for SCDA before starting the game, so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it, or if it would have happened to me anyway when I got to the beginning of level 3.

In any event, needless to say, I'm quite disappointed that I just paid $60 for a game that has only let me play two levels.

I would appreciate it if you can help me resolve this ASAP.

Thank you,

Ryan Harvey
