"Lego City Undercover" gamers on the Nintendo Switch have noted little difference between the load times of the game on the hybrid console and the Nintendo Wii U. It is expected that Warner Bros. and Traveller's Tales will release a patch to speed things up a bit. In addition, the game's PC port has also received complaints in being broken.

Loading Times Of "Lego City Undercover" Four Years Later Have Insignificant Changes

One of the most common complaints "Lego City Undercover" received when it first launched on the Wii U as an exclusive in 2013 focused on load times. It has been noted that "Lego City Undercover" takes over a minute to load into the cutscenes as well as gameplay. Hence, when the game was launched on the Nintendo Switch four years later, loading times were expected to change.

"Lego City Undercover" on the Nintendo Switch was noted by the Nintendo World Report as featuring improvements. However, a comparison video surfaced online revealing that the changes may not be as significant as hoped, Nintendo Wire reported.

The video revealed that while the Title Screen to Opening Cutscene loading time on the Wii U  took 1:04:21, it took the game on the Nintendo Switch 0:51:07. Additionally, loading time from the Open World to Police Station Interior took 0:26:25 (Wii U) and 0:21:12 (Switch), Changing Police Station Floors via the Elevator took 0:15:12 (Wii U) and 0:06:00 (Switch), and Going from the Police Station to the Open World took 1:08:12 (Wii U) and 0:51:18 (Switch).

PC Port Issues May Take Months To Fix

In other news, "Lego City Undercover" fans who hope to grab a copy of the game on PC may note that initial impressions of the PC port are not working well at the moment, Game Debate reported. Some basic issues have been noted which include the lack of mouse support, inability to change resolution and crashing when Alt+Tab is entered. The RPS have also noted that the resolution could not be changed as the Accept button does not work.

"Lego City Undercover" PC players may be stuck on the default 1280 x 1024 to everyone who owns the game. Moreover, changing other display settings may also result in a black screen. In addition, alt-tabbing may force a reboot.
