revisiting Gears of War 2

Since the new Gears of War game is coming out my nephew wanted to replay through the GOW games and we are doing so on his Xbox One console.

GOW1: Played through the game with very little issues.
GOW2: Instantly locks up at the main menu system. Have attempted to play the game around 15 times and still can not do it. We are using the digital download version and it fails upon the press start screen.
