This is pretty important. You don't want to run for example a game that was not designed for this phone. Like for example if it was made for a device that was too powerful, Tegra, etc. This has probably heated up your GPU/Processor eventually causing your phone to freeze. That's probably what happened in your case. I have B885 not come across this yet.
Edit: @Gnaver: Okay you mentioned this started happening first with modern combat 2. Which isn't really supported for this device yet. Which version did you install? In other words, for what phone was it originally designed to run on?
PES 2012 is officially supported for this phone, I have that game too and not come across this issue. But if you have come across this problem even in PES 2012. Then it could probably mean that the damage has already been done from your Modern Combat 2 game which first caused you the freeze.
I don't think installing the next ROM will fix it. It could be a hardware damage. But you could try with B885 Vodafone version first and see if you're experiencing the same issue. If you do then you may have to go back to the vodafone store for a replacement.
Oh I forgot to also mention. Try also using the phone without the SD card and see if you experience this again. Then you'll know if the SD card has a problem or an issue with the phone itself.

Best of luck then.
Thnx for answer. Few people in my country have this problem too. One have when installing sygic aura and another just randomly when he was browsing....ill wait till friday and if it happens again ill replace it (ive already called to vodafone and booked one for me )
If in case you do require a replacement. Just make sure that next time you're careful what you install. The reason I asked you which version of the game you installed is because some that are designed for more powerful phones mustn't be installed for this device or it can cause damage to your phone.
Even for games that are officially supported, you need to install the version for this device and not for Tegra device versions and such..
If you get a replacement, don't install the same version of Modern Combat 2 that you previously tried or else you're risking it to be damaged again..

Well I'm not sure about that. But PC's are different in a way, because the graphics card of a computer can cope with higher temperatures and it's also got an integrated fan.
Is it really possible to physically damage a phone by running a game? I can easily imagine the game not working, but wouldn't the CPU/GPU halt if it got too hot? Certainly that's what Intel processors have done for years (e.g. if you run one without a heatsink, the computer will halt, but there'll be no damage) and I'd assume that ARM would be the same.
That's why the highend graphics cards on a computer from GTX 560 Ti and above have 2 large fans. Even for a computer case there's better cooling system and arctic coolers, holes and big space for airflow. The motherboard also warns you and shuts down your PC if the temperatures exceed beyond the normally accepted temperature.
The Ascend G300 phone doesn't even have proper cooling system, there are no holes at the back or the side cover! So it's obvious that you'd assume it would be vulnerable to heat. I am suspecting that that's what happened to Gnaver's G300 phone.
The game will install and work, the phone won't stop you from installing a different apk file version on it. I know I demonstrated a few days ago videos running Modern Combat 3 and Asphalt 6 on the G300. But in my case I used HTC Desire/Bravo version as a tester since they have the exact same 800x480 resolution of the G300. It's safer to only use a phone similar to the G300s specification.
But it is not safe to install a version like tegra devices. Or a version for a phone that had lets say 1280x720 screen resolution. That's unsafe as it's bound to cause heat. If a game version was designed for that resolution and you run it for a phone that has 800x480 resolution like the G300 all it would do is cause heat. The graphical textures, etc were not designed for 800x480 resolution.
A PC has a better defensive mechanism than a mobile phone device with such small hardware chipsets, which are easily more vulnerable to heat.

Btw, if your speculation is correct maybe disabling fast booting would fix the problem?

I also have fast booting on and I don't experience this problem. You didn't also try to overclock your processor using SetCPU android app by any chance? Overclocking is also dangerous as it will cause your processor to overheat even more, especially during gaming. Subsequently causing your other components to heat up too.
