Neat idea but flawed execution. Update (October 2013) Game has updated lots but that had swung the game into a no fun to play or even think of anymore. They tried to make it team based, so you need 8 local players to make the best portal needed yet one enemy player can decimate 24+ portals, in short order. Game's more of a build it and expect it to be smashed sooner than later thing now. Bad game balancing. UPDATE August 2014 - Same issues with balance. Better in large city centers. UPDATE June 2016 - I still play, same issues, at least done new shields can help defend portals better but still better in an area with large amount of players than none.
Can no longer open the game. It sits on the home screen for 5+ minutes, then says a secure connection could not be established. I have already restarted the game and my phone multiple times. It shouldn't use so much data and battery.. my phone constantly overheats, and it's brand new.
one star because my phone up dated and now ingress wont run. honestly its because my phone is old but i couldn't figure out how to contact your customer service, so one start hoping you will contact me. love the game.
Animations have slowed this app down to a crawl! The lag is horrendous! It takes too long to launch the app! Upgrading resonators takes so long now! We should have the ability to turn off hacking animations! Common shields are Rare, Rare shields are Very Rare and Very Rare shields & AXA shields are non-existent! I hack all day long every day and I've only hacked 2 AXA shields in 2 months! So many problems! After 5 years they should be smoothing out the bugs not making the list of bugs longer! STOP UPDATING!!
A couple years ago I started playing this game. The first year was full of fun and discovery. Then the game got worse. They no longer allow you to submit portals, they don't respond to inquiries in a respectable amount of time, they won't take down old portals. The game is laggy, the controls only work about half the time. There is no reason to play a game when the developers lost interest.
Im seeing long time players burning out because of a lack of new content. Please release 2.0 with new player levels and additional items for levels 9 to 16.
