I used to like ign it was my main game news website. Wikis took well over a year to fix on the app and now watching videos is beyond poor. Several videos are unwatchable, by this I mean the 30 second advert will play perfectly fine without buffering or problems but then the video you want to watch will NEVER load just a spinning circle forever. No matter how many times you back out and retry the 30 second adveet replays without problems but then video never works. Pretty sure if have done this on purpose so you will try several times to watch a video so they get more money through adverts as you repeatedly watch adverts over and over to try to watch one trailor or video. Avoid like the plague.
The IGN app has small problems, such as several articles supposedly having a list then you just see pictures. I'm pretty sure the captions with the pictures are supposed to explain but there's no way to see them on the mobile app. While the app itself runs well, most the people at IGN are extremely bias. The ps4 pro, like the Xbox one x, doesn't have any exclusives and yet they praise the pro and bash the X. There are multiple examples of their bias if you just scroll down the feed. I used to live logging into the app for up to date news, but unfortunately they've diluted to click bait with Naomi, and bias articles. If you are a Playstation fan, this app is probably right for you. If you are a gamer who enjoys all games and wants to see honest unbiased articles, avoid this app.
The only videos that stream properly are the advertisement everything else buffers. If ign plans to cram adverts down my throat I at least expect decent streaming. The news is not bad but the vid streaming issue pretty much makes me skip over all the vids
Was holding out on getting this app till the old issues got solved. Happy to report that they have been. Videos work beautifully, menus are intuitive. It's fast and hasn't crashed once. You can ignore the old reviews now. This app works great!
Fix the videos. I watch the ad before your videos fine. Then when the video I wanted to watch comes on its just buffer time. Why does the ad play but not your video. Doesn't matter if it's on WiFi or 4g lte. I can put it on the lowest resolution and it still won't play. If I open IGN in the browser the videos play fine. Just please get on with it and fix the app. Signed Frustrated User.
Do yourselves a favor and just Youtube any videos you wanna watch on Ign oh and just read their reviews via meta critic. DO NOT INSTALL! Whoever rated this more than 1 star are either fake and work for IGN or are 1 year olds that got ahold of their parents phones...I mean WTF YALL!? Using this broken, Ad bloated app makes me question the level of intelligence and overall level of commonsense of a company that is SUPPOSED to be all about gaming and tech. Ads on literally every single article. Wanna watch a quick 30 sec video of a clip? WRONG! It's really 1 minute and 15 seconds if you include the 45 second ads that permeate every single area. Can't log in, no matter what, broken links in every single wiki. Just trash. IGN should be ashamed and just shoot themselves for releasing this travesty of a hot steaming mess....
