- Summary: Set in the far reaches of outer space during a new Dark Age, WARFRAME introduces the Tenno, a race on the brink of extinction after being enslaved by the Grineer for centuries. Players enter WARFRAME on the cusp of the Grineer's victory over the Tenno until they begin to arm themselves with WARFRAMES - an ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. Hidden within the Orokin Derelicts of a lost civilization, new WARFRAMES lie dormant and undiscovered. These artifacts are the Tenno's only hope for survival.… Expand

Apr 12, 2013Warframe isn't anything special. It's not revolutionary, exceptional or timeless. Still - every time I returned to the game, it kept playing for at least an hour (without regret). Digital Extremes has made an enjoyable, engrossing, spectacular game. Especially, when you find yourself a team or - even better - invite some friends. If you need a new opportunity to slaughter aliens, you should try Warframe.
Apr 2, 2013Really great game. It has large updates that are put out each month. It keeps getting better. Very polished gameplay. One of the best free to play games I've played. I would highly recommend experiencing it with your friends as it was meant to be played cooperatively and it's a far more fun than when played solo.… Expand
Sep 24, 2013"Space Ninjas"; need I say more? The only thing that could top that would be the inclusion of Space Pirates but then I wouldn't be able to hear anything else over the sound of the game's interstellar awesomeness. Warframe is a great shooter made by a company that has a long legacy of action games. Shooter skills and platformer style moves allow you to run on walls, jump chasms, and lay into the enemy with everything from heave repeater laser guns to swords... The weaponry in the game is truly awesome and every Warframe is fun to play with it's own individual mix of powers and stats. It's free to play and everything in the game can acquired, with the only limitations being time to get it and how many active weapons/warframes you can own at any one time. A minor investment in the game though ($20) gives you enough coin to unlock a huge garage ready to stock with every warframe in the game and several dozen various weapons. It is well worth the cost if you like a lot of variety and is the only real limitation of the free game. It's a blast to play with friends or just in "online-instant-group" mode. Two thumbs up.… Expand
Oct 7, 2013Anyone who reviewed this badly has no true Idea what they're taking about, excluding 223kazin with a review posted April 24 2013. I've played this aspiring game for 230+ hours in the past 5 months, and have had no issue with it.
The Platinum system (cash for fake cash) is over priced, but almost everything can be acquired through the game. Plus there is a log in reward system that give you the chance to pay for platinum from 25% off to 75%. The company needs to make money some how.
The game play is exciting... well for a game that's free to play. It's a third person shooter, with some element of parkour. It's not Assassin's creed and it had never tried to aspire to be. The style is unique in man factors, enough so to say; this game is not trying to be like any other type of game.
The Environment is repetitive, and unless they update it, no one will disagree.
My favorite thing about this game is... bare with me. the guys behind the scenes. I would hardly call them greedy, and how on earth can they be called fascist; that doesn't even make sense. They general check there forums and do as the people want, there that way. For example, there was an over powered weapon in the game "Kunia" that they wanted to Nerf, but all the gamers loved it so they kept it. this isn't the only situation that they've listened to the gamers. They care about the gamers more then I can say for any other game.
They've been composing many updates to the game to improve it like the main campaign. which is why it is still considered a Beta. They're even trying to make the environment more diverse. this game, still enthralling, will be even better and better
I think it would be fair for you to try it before deciding, "hmmm... do love this game, dislike it, maybe even loathe it, or maybe it just bores me." It is a free game, so give it a shot. please don't loath to do this.… Expand
Mar 26, 2013The gameplay is pretty fun, even though the missions and environments are pretty repetitive. I wouldn't mind so much if I could actually improve my skills without having to spend real life money to buy 'platinum'. Since the credits you earn from missions is a pathetic sum compared to the cost of powering up your mods (without mods you basically have a lv30 Warframe that's as strong as a lv1). You get a maximum of 5000 credits if you farm the first boss for an item he drops worth 2500 credits 100% of the time. Building a new Warframe is also a chore, it costs 35k for the master blueprint, you then have to farm the specific boss for blueprints for helmet, chassis and systems. Not only will this take forever because of poor droprates, the parts also cost 25k each to build and 24 hours build time. You then have to build the Warframe for 25k more with a build time of 72 hours. We're already at 135k, but it doesn't end there! You also need an 'Orokin Reactor' to supercharge your Warframe, or you will be stuck at 50% of it's maximum potential. These only drop from rare alerts that have special rewards, with those Reactors being just about the rarest to come by. Once you finally get the blueprint for that, it takes another 35k to build that. So we're at 170k for a second Warframe. Couple this with MAYBE max 40k an hour for farming, and you're grinding the same mission over and over for at least 4.5 hours. Everything takes months in this game without spending real life money, for which in game items have a ridiculous price. Buying the pack for the Warframe 'Frost' (1 Warframe, 1 primary, 1 secondary and 1 melee) costs a whopping 60 USD. I can easily buy 5 great games for that kind of money in Steam sales which won't bore me to tears like Warframe does.… Expand
Dec 9, 2013I would have given it a "1" for effort but after all the deception and abuse of the customers I just can not.
Currently there are 27 pages including 540 postings by extremely angry players of this game on the Warframe forums regarding the ill treatment we have received at the hands of this company.
- Free to play?
Before you invest your time and money in this potentially wonderful but actually disappointing game please read on.
Welcome to Warframe where you will be asked to invest real money to buy in game platinum currency which is used in a nonrefundable manner to purchase items that improve your otherwise useless "free" weaponry.
Then watch your weaponry (for which you have paid real money) get arbitrarily destroyed by nerfing. While new items are then offered to you in the market for real cash to replace your now useless weapons.
Alternatively you will be asked to grind out 100 missions in a "special Event" for a promised reward weapon.
You do the grind you get a nice weapon that looks worth investing real cash in in order to make it a respectable end game weapon. Then weeks later after spending your real money and wihtout any warning the nice weapon you got gets basically destroyed by a major nerf from the developers and the weapon is simply no longer useful.
This has been a recurring theme for this game for months now and the veteran gamers are extremely unhappy with this business model.
The developers have repeatedly encouraged players to spend real money on an allegedly F2P game to get decent weaponry and then they have repeatedly trashed those weapons to the point of uselessness only to introduce a new weapon for real currency rinse and repeat.
Case in point a weapon called the Soma offered for sale for real cash and a weapon slot purchased for real money weapon purchased then subsequently the stats significantly change from the purchased weapon stats rendering it far worse and in fact useless in many parts of the game.
Case in point -
A weapon called the strunwraith shotgun offered as a reward for time invested in special event which the developers used to test a new game format.
Event done weapon awarded then subsequently "nerfed" to the point of being put back on the shelf. Oh yes this weapon also consumed real cash for a weapon slot and for upgrades to make it truly useful.
Current Case in point -
A weapon called the Brakk again an event reward for running over 100 missions! 100 mission! That is a HUGE investment.
And again the warframe developers arbitrarily ruined the weapon after many people had invested real cash upgrading it too.
The behavior of the game developer here, DE, is at best abusive and indifferent to the gaming community. But it also constitutes engaging in deceptive and unethical business practice.
I would strongly encourage the gaming community to avoid spending any more real cash on this game until a little well deserved respect is shown and this reprehensible bait and switch business practice is terminated .
If you don't believe me then go to the warframe forums page and read the now 27 pages of 540 postings of extremely angry gamers. It says way more than I ever could.
Avoid this game like the plague.
thank you… Expand
