It doesn’t save the stars you earn! 1/5
It worked great for a while, but all my stars have dissappeared, and no matter how many I earn, it doesn’t save them. I guess you can only buy them?
Something's wrong with the app! 1/5
Today when I opened the app I have 0 stars,, I had over 200,000 after a 350+ day streak. The daily challenge is "unavailable" & all the categories are locked, After I've had them all unlocked for over a year. I hope this issue will be resolved. This is the only game I really enjoyed playing on my phone.
Fun game, lost all decks and stars 2/5
It’s a fun game to play with friends. Today I noticed that all the decks I have unlocked in the past are gone and so are all the stars that I’ve earned. Very disappointed
List of Stars 3/5
By :) jh
I like the game, don’t get me wrong but I just wanted to know all the stars on the game. It says thousands of stars and I keep getting the same 100 stars. Can you guys release a list of the stars you use in the game, please? I would really appreciate it.
Doesn't understand what I say 2/5
I say the right thing and it counts it wrong multiple times. Needs to be fixed.
Could Be So Much Better 2/5
I love Ellen, her show and her games, but I’m disappointed with the quality of this game. Downloaded this a few months ago and right away noticed problems. 1) In voice mode, I NEVER get the first one correct even if I say the correct answer. I’ve even followed the troubleshooting to make sure I say the entire name, but it still doesn’t work. 2) Most of the achievements either stop keeping track or they are impossible to achieve. Ex: How can you get 25 correct when it doesn’t go past 25? 3) Desperately needs new decks. The only one that’s been added since I started playing was “Green” around St. Patrick’s Day, but it doesn’t track leadership boards, achievements, etc. 4) The game caps at level 65.
I don’t mind the ads if it keeps the game free. But, I would like to see things like new decks or avatars that I can use my gazillion stars/points to purchase. Also, I know I don’t have to play if I don’t like it. The problem is that I do like it. However, with all the issues, I only open the app to receive my daily bonus and complete the daily challenges.
So bad 1/5
By Why use it
I got the game and when ever I actually got one right the app said it was wrong!!!!!!!!
Fun but 3/5
This game is very fun. But would be better if the voice feature worked.
I have been enjoying the app for over a month and today my games are locked again, stars gone, points vanished?? I emailed the app. Will either add or delete stars when responded to.
Edit: They responded right away via email and all my results have been restored. 👏🏻
Only issue now is the inconsistency with voice.
One year after launch and many features went missing 4/6/2018. Daily challenge not loading ‘unable to connect’ and earned stars reset to zero. Categories that I previously ‘bought’ with stars locked back up again. Too bad as it was a fun way to pass a few minutes.
Updates wiped out all progress 1/5
I’ve been playing this game for months and had all decks unlocked.
All of a sudden - all progress is wiped out and back to zero on everything. Not starting over! 😡
I love this app but today there’s a glitch 5/5
I had over 200,000 stars and had every category unlocked, but when I opened the app today it shows me having 0 stars and only the beginning categories unlocked. It still shows me being level 40 though and having an 84-day streak for the challenges. Also it won’t let me challenge a player which is something I need to do for my challenge today or else I’ll lose my streak. Hope the app-makers fix this soon!
ADDICTIVE & FUN 5/5
Sure, there are a few minor bugs, but the app is still amazingly fun. The only voice issue I have is the game NEVER recognizing Gwyneth Paltrow when I say it. That is causing me to not be able to get 100% in that category. The only really FRUSTRATING issue I have are the achievements not being clear on what you have to do. OVERALL, I LOVE THE APP AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT. I’ve also learned a lot. THANKS ELLEN, LOVE YOU! 😺💜
It seems fun but the pictures don't work
Improvements needed 3/5
1. Make sure all of the “achievements” can actually be achieved. ie-get 25 answers correct in a single round...great idea but it doesn’t allow you to get any more questions past the required number needed for a perfect score, even when you’ve got extra time?
2. If the multiplayer games you’ve initiated against players don’t play after a certain number of games they should automatically forfeit.
3. There should be short explanations for the achievements so I’m not having to guess what I need to do to earn it. For instance in the “Say What?” achievement do I need to get 100% correct in a single round of voice mode in all different categories?
4. Fix bugs where it doesn’t recognize achievements. I should’ve gotten the “perfection!!” achievement a bunch of times (because I’ve counted) and I’ve not received it.
5. I invited 2 fb friends and then thought of a couple more to invite, but now I’m unable to invite any more? As in the button isn’t working to add anyone else. Boo.
There are probably more improvements that should be made that I haven’t thought of, but these seem pretty obvious. Overall, it’s pretty fun and can be addictive.
I can't add friends? 1/5
Teach me how to add friends
Worse game ever!!!!! 1/5
Worse game ever!!!!! Can’t understand my voice answers half the time and I am pronouncing them clearly! Also have daily challenges that if you fail you have to give up earned stars to try again which is ridiculous as I lost hundreds of stars that I was saving up to open another category!! Don’t waste your time with the stupid game!
Confused?! Pleas answer 5/5
I don't know how to set my picture as a avetar? But grate game love it!!!!!!!😝😿
Love it! 😍 5/5
By Singer goalie
I love Ellen and I love this game! 8 words only!!
Voice mode 3/5
Voice mode doesn't work that well otherwise a pretty okay game.
Not happy 1/5
This game would be better if it would actually let me press the answer on the last question. Doesn’t let you get a perfect score no matter how fast you work
Need to fix. 2/5
I’ve played this multiple times and it doesn’t give you credit for some of the names when they are absolutely correct. Always with the voice component. It’s frustrating.
Not enough time 1/5
On multiple choice it gives you barely 5 seconds to answer.
Fun if it worked 2/5
The voice recognition does not work properly. I say the full name, I don’t stutter and still it says I’m wrong when I know I’m not.
I like it but it can be frustrating!😬
Frustrating to play 2/5
The game would be more fun with certain improvements. One is I f the voice mode worked. I have specifically noticed that it almost NEVER works on the very first question even after I say the correct answer. I follow the tips and say the full name before pressing the button and it counts my correct answer as incorrect.
Because voice mode was so unpredictable, I decided to go with multiple choice mode which is just as frustrating for different reasons. In the short time given, its nearly impossible to look up at the face and then select from the choices at the bottom in time. Even an extra 5 seconds on the clock would be more helpful.
Also, I have noticed that the game cheats. Often if I am doing better than usual, this is when the voice mode stops working or the time bar seems to run faster when I am trying to say the name.
I’m deleting the game and I don’t recommend it at this point. Play HQ twice a day. At least they have a good reason when they glitch. Trying to connect over a million people at one time is quite an undertaking. This is just poor tech or on purpose.
Voice Recognition is Terrible 1/5
It frequently does not understand the answer and counts it as incorrect leading to a very frustrating experience. I will be deleting from my phone.
Not really worth it 2/5
I am so annoyed that the mic one doesn’t understand what you’re saying and counts it as wrong even though it’s not. For the multiple choice, it should be done differently so you don’t have to look up at the person and then down at the answers. It’s annoying and costs you time. But my biggest problem with this app is that there are ads. Ellen is a millionaire. She doesn’t need apps, 2 shows, a dog clothing and toy line and whatever else she is doing. She doesn’t need to get money from ads on this game. I got so sick of playing this. Deleting for the second time.
We need new decks for sure. I agree with the ‘voice’ option needing some work. As for the cheating around #17, I didn’t have that. I have gotten 20/20 and 15/15 dozens of times.
Put 80’s deck back please 4/5
Really enjoy this game but SO disappointed that you took off the 80’s deck! Agree with others about the voice mode. Really need to add some more decks AND put back the 80’s deck!
Idiot Alert! 3/5
By Mister Fanelle Dutchingshamen
Stop cheating players after they reach 17 correct answers. Also, take the Scientologists off your app, they make it look that much dumber.
Crashes all the time 1/5
Just tried to open the game and play and after choosing voice mode the game kept crashing. Had high hopes for the game after watching it in game of games.
Fun game major flaws 2/5
Buzzes wrong on clear correct answers all the time. Need to fix
Fun But Rigged 3/5
No matter how many times I answered correctly during “Voice Mode” it would never count all the correct answers.
Tired of the pop up ads 1/5
Ok this creator has enough funds not to have pop up ads....quiting playing. Downloaded 1 day, day 1 was fun and now this. Good luck Hot Hands or Hands Down now! 😜 and answers that are clearly right or counted wrong & Ellen cheats if you play against her she win every damm time, seriously!
Also starts at age 4+ give me a break! Seriously maybe 14 and up....🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
This game cheats 1/5
Firstly, I agree with the other reviews about voice mode. It counts things as wrong even if you say it clearly.
Additionally on multiple choice mode it cheats. I thought I was seeing things but I wasn’t. Pay close attention, once you get to 17 correct answers in a row in begins hiding the number of correct answers with your “bonus points”. I finally realized that it stops counting my correct answers until time is up. On my last game before deleting the app, I watched when I got to 17 and how it didn’t count my 3 answers after that so I couldn’t reach 20.
Giving 2 stars because it was actually a really fun game before I realized the cheating.
It's ok 2/5
I wouldn't suggest to get it but you could
Would be more fun if the voice mode actually worked!
Voice Mode needs work 2/5
This game has potential to be lots of fun but voice mode needs to be fixed. It’s never consistent on if the answer will be counted, even if I say it clearly and correctly. This problem needs to be addressed.
By nose Picksters
Great game but I don’t know any celebs
Fun game 5/5
FIX THE VOICE RECOGNITION!!! 3/5
Nuff said... voice recognition is buggy, scoring you wrong when you clearly said the right answer. Other than that it is a good party game.
Network error. 2/5
Unlocked a few new categories, however; I constantly get a network error when it tries to load them. WiFi is working perfectly, so the issue is not on my end. Disappointing to spend stars to unlock stuff and not be able to play it. :(
lana del rey 1/5
plz take lana del rey off this bc i don't want her seeming too mainstream. ppl don't need to find out about her. she has too many fans already.
Need more updates 3/5
This game was an absolute blast at the start, and the addition of streaks was a really nice touch. However, Voice mode is still a bit buggy at times (scoring you wrong even if you said the answer clearly and correctly), and the game could really use more decks to unlock.
App is ok 3/5
By Kim S Hill
This app is fun but definitely needs some help to make it better. I had it for two days a deleted.
Stuck -won't work 1/5
I can't get past the intro. App will NOT work!
The voice mode is bad 1/5
Voice mode accepts wrong answers and says my right answers are wrong.
The game 4/5
This app is really good for if your board and want to play
