“Back after 4 year break now I'm leaving for good.”

Written on: 18/08/2013 by WarrenTungsten (1 review written)

A few years ago Pogo used to be full of game players in Pool and Hearts. Now you are lucky if there are any players actually looking for a game at all.Rooms are full of people just chatting with little intention of playing.If you move between rooms to try and find a game there is a 30sec loading period each time.If you are lucky enough to get a game you have similar 30sec breaks actually during the games.Its hard to understand the mentality behind why Pogo changed so much but I for one will not… Read Full Review

“Sick of Java issues”

Written on: 22/07/2013 by Hobbygranny (1 review written)

I am so sick of the java issues that continue. My husband writes to then constantly on his account. He has a top of the line computer and it screwed up his computer so bad, we spent $200.00 to get it straightened out. I have and older smaller computer and now it has started giving me the messages about Java updates and when you update, pogo does not recognize it. Ready to drop Pogo after 6 years. Fearing what it will do to my computer. A company this size should be able to resolve these issues… Read Full Review

“Pogo Was Great Before EA Sports Ruined It ...”

Written on: 12/07/2013 by MysticMoods (1 review written)

and this online gaming monolith sure don't know how to handle a little tiny gaming site that has no where near the graphic content as their other ventures. Constant game freezing, game room booting, dozens of web site glitches, forum mods who delete your posts (that aren't "pro-pogo") without so much as a reason ... the list goes on. $40/year US? They couldn't pay me $40/month to put up with this huge zero. But for $40 an hour I might be able to put up with them for about 10… Read Full Review

“Dont sign up for POGO”

Written on: 30/06/2013

I had a Pogo account for years and then I cancelled it and 2 years later they took money out of my account and then gave me the complete run around to get a refund. I could not get my money back after contacting them for months. There is no phone number to contact them. You will get a run around through EA customer service. It is just blatant theft. Dont sign up. The games arent that great either… Read Full Review

“Use to be able to play against people not any more”

Written on: 29/06/2013

Since the update when i play battleships and the server never seems to find anyone to play, please go back to the old way. Think i am going to give up on pogo now. Did try to contact Pogo to give some feedback but after 10 mins of going round and round i gave up, seems they aren't interested in my opinion… Read Full Review

“Used to be such an affordable and problem-free place”

Written on: 27/06/2013

I started playing pogo in 2002, I think - Poppit, joined Club Pogo in 2003. Problems occurred then and were readily fixed. The main problem was the viciousness of players in various rooms. Now, however, it's all changed. It is a game site rampant with technical problems - games freeze, downloaded games completely screw up computer, tokens lost, credit not given for play, system shuts down. Latest one was Father's Day - laughing - no comment from pogo 'Tahd' about the fact no one got their… Read Full Review

“the frames on several games lack the edges of the game”

Written on: 12/06/2013 by beignet (1 review written)

I have tried to contact pogo sevral time thru the ea help center. Everytime I log in the response is: This service is not currently available. This has occurred everytime. None of the standard help boards addresss my issue. I have even tried to reach Eentertainment Arts in Redwood, CA to no avail. I have been unable to play several games (canasta, solitaires, etc.)for 2 months now. Hear is an example re: scrabble - The game loads, but if i use the dictionary ,I can't click it off because the… Read Full Review

Citytigers's Response to beignet's Review

Written on: 13/06/2013

This is simply a problem with your 'Zoom' setting. Make sure it's set to 100% and you'll be good to go. Honestly, people need to take some responsibility for looking after their own computers and the settings they use instead of just blaming the game provider all the time.

“subpar capabilities”

Written on: 02/06/2013

I have been a club member since 1998. Between my daughters and my nieces I renew 5 members yearly. There have been several occasions where the system was too busy so we were unable to play. I have not received a refund nor a proration. Pogo does not have the capabilities to handle the amount of members. Other problems have occurred where I was unable to finish games that I started. Usually this occurs when they have promotions. Don't have promotions if it will effect game play… Read Full Review

“Lost Another Club Member”

Written on: 06/05/2013

I agree with the majority of the listed comments. Pogo is really suffering and it's such a shame. With constant nagging issues that remain unresolved, it's become increasingly frustrating, especially when the membership cost to play these games with all of their problems, increases! I've been a Club Member for many years, but as of this year, will NO longer be renewing my account. Pogo always seems to have more excuses, rather than answers when it comes to fixing the constant problems… Read Full Review

“Fed up with Java,Pogo is gone.”

Written on: 03/05/2013

I have to agree with a lot of the other reviews here about Pogo. I started playing on pogo in 2001 and I have been a member for years.I downloaded the newest Java last week and received yet another different pop up warning box playing a pogo game about security.I am fed up with the pop up Java boxes and the frequent downloading of Java "fixes". I only have Java on my computer to play pogo and decided to take Java off my computer entirely and not play on Pogo anymore. I still have half a years… Read Full Review

“Idiot programmers at Pogo”

Written on: 01/05/2013

Been a Pogo member for many years and am not going to renew because of the Java constant problems. Its hard to believe that with all their money they can't hire someone that knows how to fix the problem. I have fixed Java no run my game problem so many times, then the idiot (want to be Java programmer) changes something and there we go again. I am totally through with Pogo. They had so really great games… Read Full Review

“What happened to pogo”

Written on: 29/04/2013 by talusu (1 review written)

I have been a member of pogo since 20001, I have watched there website go down the hill for the past 5 years. What has happened, new management, disgruntal management. Never have I come acrosse a website where you cannot contact a REAL PERSON. Hell you can't even post a question in the forum, that is unless it is one of pogo's questions. People that are already members do not need help with registration, playing the games, or any of the other lame questions they have. They want answers to… Read Full Review

“HORRIBLE GAME SITE”

Written on: 25/04/2013 by dsan12 (1 review written)

I've been a pogo member since 2003. Pogo was a fantastic site years ago. Today it SUCKS. I have never had more frustration, zero way to get real help, yet they have no technical problems in warning you well in advance that your subscription is about to expire. They'll take your money without a hitch or a glitch, but don't count on being able to solve INSANELY FRUSTRATING JAVA problems, games loading problems, unavailable rooms to play in, etc., etc., etc. What was once a relaxing pass time is… Read Full Review

POGO was once a great game-site now at best it is mediocre and rarely is it at it's best. Java issues abound. Tech "specialists" cant even fix games. I have been a member for almost 10 years and this will be my final year… Read Full Review
