I've encountered long loading times in games, but not like this. Eurogamer put together a video showing what can be done in the time it takes to go from the title screen to the in-game action.

Man I have 350 gigs worth of hentai, uncensored VN's , and whatnot. I recently backed them up on a external HD. The whole process took me 11 minutes . So what gives with Sniper Ghost Warrior 3?

The long load times probably wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't glitch-prone as hell at release. I understand patches got the original load time down to about 3 minutes, and fixed some(?) of the glitches, but the condition at release is amazing.

I acquired it recently, and haven't gotten past the first couple of missions because it freezes, won't load the map or pause menu for periods of time, and have fallen down through the world while climbing down a ladder. "Fast Travel is Not Available At This Time".

You can't make long shots in this game about sniping outside of special points, because the enemies don't load beyond about 100 "meters", except where they already expected you to shoot from outside that range. Unless they don't.

So they announced the multiplayer/co-op for January.

....but wow, that actually sounds pretty bad. :/ I almost picked the game up on Steam sale too.

Since then, I patched it and it's now almost literally a different game. It's actually playable, for one. I heard that the PC version had far fewer problems than the PS4, too.

If it goes on a big sale again, you should think about it. Just don't expect a good story, decent acting, or hearing more than one song on the radio, which is the same song that plays during the main title, but isn't the only song in the game... if you really try hard to find other radios.
