Are Xbox 360 games region locked?

Games for the Xbox 360 are so much cheaper online than they are in the stores where I live. If i order a game from Europe or Asia and try to play it on a North American Xbox 360 will it work?

I had to learn this one the hard way. Xbox 360 games ARE region locked. They are not always locked, but it is so random that it is not worth purchasing any of em. Some sites that offer importing services might mention whether the games are region free or not, but it does seem to be quite random.
