Anybody else find that in the Challenges, it takes a good 30 seconds when restarting the event? I'm not an impatient person but when you're in the zone trying to beat a time, the last thing you want is a little mini-break. Just get me back in. Or at least give me a slideshow of cars or women or both to admire while I wait. I even installed the game on my slim to see if it would speed things up. No dice. Meh.

The part I hate is the 10 second load times for each color/body kit on a car. Granted, it's not a LONG time... But when you are trying to look at each color/kit on a car, it feels like an eternity.

I'm not a fan of the overly long loading times for online races. Not only that, but sometimes they can take minutes and sometimes only 20 seconds or so. What is there to make it so different from race to race?

The online wait times don't bother me too much yet. The load time during The Run and Challenges is nearly unbearable at times. Right around 30 seconds every time....ouch.

Yeah this games load tmes are through ther roof ridiculous. Almost seems like patches are needed to fix it, or, it might be the frostbite 2 engine, IMO. Load time between challenges and car colors are way to long. What really pisses me off though is when you crash and the RESET screen pops up flashing.... there is no way to start it on your own and it may take 3 seconds or 20 seconds ! What the hell is that? Online load times are way to long as well. Terrible terrible game design on this point.

EA/BlackBox clearly went to the Valve school for load screens on this game.

I'm going through the challenges now and the loading times are doing my head in!!! Some of the challenges are infuriating as well dun around 30 of them on gold about 25 to go

Just received an update while starting the game. It seems like this problem is solved. 5 sec loading time is the max right now.

I'm currently playing through stage 10 on extreme. The resets are taking around 10 seconds but if I restart the stage I'm looking at a loading screen for 40+ seconds (I've actually sat and timed it on a stopwatch) so no way has this been solved.

40 seconds to reload something that was already loaded in the first place seems completely unacceptable to me.

Put this together with the cheating AI drivers and the way the game has cheated me in general today and I'm close to giving up on this game.

For online its going to be internet connections. I forget if this is P2P or server based but either way it requires everyone in the lobby to be loaded up etc which will cause a variance.

Aye, def not been solved, though if you want crazy loadtimes on a level thats been loaded already try deus ex: HR, even installed the load times on that are nuts. I don't see why they have to fully clear the cache of a loaded level and reload the whole thing, other games do it fine...

I am going through the Time Trials and the flashback loading time is way too long. Before starting a race is also very long... I like that game, but it fails on that point for sure... and the loading times when you change the car color are awful.

Yeah the load times during the challenges are ridiculous. From the point where I want to restart the race to the point it actually starts takes around 45 seconds. In a game where races can take as little as 2 minutes, and a mistake can happen any second, 45 seconds to restart is insane.
