I was pretty excited to find a used copy of BG: DA2 for the Xbox. It's a pretty rare game as I came to find out. Years ago, I loved the first, BG: DA, on my PS2.
Playing it on the 360, all was well until there are 4 or more creatures with arrows shooting. The gameplay slows down to a crawl. There's no loss of FPS, just super slow motion until a few creatures are killed. It's barely playable. What a let-down.
I thought it was the game itself, but then I pulled out my old Xbox, dusted it off, and tried it... the game works flawlessly. It turns out the 360 software emulation is to blame.
Nuts, I really like the way it looked using HDMI at 720p and I prefer using the 360 controller. I guess the ol' Xbox is going to have it's last hurrah.
