Great game, but.. Fix ingame SPAM! Comm is CRAMMED with spammers selling game items. Also nothing significantly new added recently. Needs more effort to fix location spoofing, cheating, multi acs and spammers. Current crew seems not interested at all. Pokemons ate all of them? Bring back portal submissions. This game used to be inivative and actively developed but its only dust and spiderwebs now. And Spammers.
Uses data. Uses power. You need a good data plan and a power back up source to play efficiently. You need good GPS or else your man gets booted across the street and back, and then you get softbanned. Takes forever to level up if you live in the suburbs. If you live or work downtown it's easy to level up (more portals). Very repetitive, hack, attack, deploy, add mod, link, repeat. Yawn. You also need a phone that's not "obsolete", i.e. galaxy II doesn't play this game efficiently, if at all.
Some stuff that can be fixed: DPI scaling (a happy medium between regular and the small icons option), one finger rotation (it's in PoGo, it should be here), better control of spam in COMM, and more significant updates (ie How Ultra Strikes were introduced). Also, please bring Glyph Hacking to Android Wear.
Good game love its idea, graphics could be alot better tho, its 2017.. Improvements could be done, for example: one thing that absolutely makes me angry, is the map.. let us zoom out more! Why cant players zoom out more? So we can see more, plan journey and links without having to use intel maps that are so BAD (honestly put that website down.) Its ruining the whole experience.
The game has lost its spark Although the game started with high standards, it has worn off. I am still playing it after 3 years and in the past I've given 5 stars, but the time spent is decreasing day by day. Some reasons? Very high data consumption, changed permissions and info gathering, allow spoofers, bots, full spam, portal discovery is down. In general the game has stalled. Needs a fresh startup.
Resolve the spoofer problem We have reported several spoofer account in our area with legit proof but seems like there are still no good respond. The spoofers accounts are still live and breaking portals.... What happened? Before, when we report someone spoofing, niantic's respond was fast but now it's almost never... This will be my rating for now...
