UPDATE: Now playable, but with a few conditions!
on 9 February 2014
As others have already said, as a massive fan of the original I couldn't wait to get my hands on this 'remastered version'. I was really disappointed then, to find the graphics jumping all over the shop, the audio randomly cutting out, and then the dreaded freezes (where I'd have to turn my Xbox completely off), which meant I'd lost a load of progress. Sent it back for a new copy, although it sounds like I'm not going to have much joy there either! Lionhead, hang your head in shame.
Update - I went on to Lionhead studios website and they gave the following advice, which so far has worked a treat for me (hence the change in stars from 1 to 3):
If you're experiencing any sort of bug, first follow these simple steps:
1) Clear your System Cache (in Xbox menu - settings - memory - y button - clear cache)
2) Make sure you have the Title Update installed (a small 4MB patch that will download the first time you play)
3) When you first launch the game, leave it on the start screen for roughly 5 minutes to allow your system to cache
4) Go back in game and see if the issue still presents itself
