Battlefield 1 Review - 6 Ups & 4 Downs

3. The Brutal Loading Times

You're going to want to have an iPad or phone nearby while playing BF1, because boy, the loading times sure are long as Hell.

Now, PC players may fare a little better here depending on their rig, but on consoles, loading times routinely pass the minute mark while trying to start a match.

While this frustration is lessened somewhat by the fact that matches can last up to an hour before you need to sit through another long load, they still feel excessive and stamina-drainingly dull if you've got nothing else to amuse yourself with.

Sadly there's not really much of a way to fix this, given how clearly the game is putting a technical strain on the PS4 and Xbox One.
