so a few days ago i ordered half life from gamestop's web site for the playstation 2. it got here, but it won't play the game! the ps2 either freezes and makes clicking sounds or the game will load and will freeze whenever part of the world tries to load. it's getting annoying. i own a grey ps2 slim that i've owned for years.. and this is only happening with half life. what do i do? should i get a new disc or try one of the older ps2 models? please don't tell me to get a gaming pc, as i don't have the $3000 to pay for the one i want atm.
also, the game IS scratched.. pretty bad. it looks like it was put into a moving xbox 360 and was scratched to death. there's a huge scratch that goes all the way around the disc, and then minor ones all over the place.
You should print your receipt and take it to your local gamestop and see if you can get exchanged. because it shouldn't be scratched like that. I'm sure your console is fine you just need to get another game.
