Kids these days it's always now, now, now. This game will finally teach you patience.Yes, many reviewers complain about it... and yes, I bet you're going to say "It's not that bad", but... good god, the loading times in Birth by Sleep is actually quite lengthy even with the data install. I installed the full 600mb [or whatever the highest you can install] and it's still quite lengthy. It 'loads' when you try to access the menu, the cutscenes have some lengthy load times between each and... loading between areas.
I can understand loading between areas. But I hate the cutscenes and menus for the simple fact it 'loads' and it feels like the data install doesn't help. I can't help comparing it to the Japanese version in which I had it on CFW on download and it was quick and seamless for me. It makes me wish that Square-Enix did release a digital download version because as much as owning a 'box' is nice, at least with a download, loading times are quicker and I don't have to listen to that hissing sound from the UMD that drive me nuts.
It makes me want to agree with Gamespot. It deserves a fucking lower score just for the painful loading times.
...At least it's better than Kingdom Hearts II and Days.
i can see why it would load alot considering that they added mysterious figure into the game. for me, i think it loads like any other PSP game. i didn't expect it to load very fast.
I personally found the load times quite helpful they gave me time to reflect on a huge cut-scene or to relax after a boss fight.
