Either the disc is warped somehow or the PS2 is having issues emulating it. Has your PS2 given you any problems with other games? If it has, it may be that your system needs to be cleaned of dust particles. I noticed when my PS2 started having issues loading and freezing, it was because of this issue.

All my other ps1 games work perfectly even tossed a dvd through it just to check.

Then it must be the disc, try getting it cleaned and see if that helps.

Not necessarily the disc.

I had the same issue on my ps2, and my ps2 has played most of my other ps1 games with no issue. Played fine on ps1, but I got rid of the PS1, and when I tried to use my ps2 the game would lock up. I think it was on the Dues battle.

I bought a cheap PS1 slim from a friend, and it played the game fine and I could finally get past the boss fight.

I would try tossing the disk in your PC and emulating it on epsxe.

Last I heard PSX emulators couldn't play Xenogears properly come the second disc. Did that issue ever get resolved?
