    Play Warframe. Play it for more than a few hours, preferably with friends, and keep an open mind into doing some third-party research to straighten out some of these systems. Warframe takes so much of what makes ARPG’s addictive, and rounds it out with more polish and depth than most its competitors on the current games market. If the hooks aren’t deeply embedded by then, maybe something this in-depth isn’t for you.

    The idea with the Tamagotchi-space-dogs is already absolutely amazing.
  3. With the lack of a Pay to Win system and easy engagement for new players, Warframe offers some quality time.

    Digital Extremes has created something that's often genuinely fun to play, and given the cost of entry, Warframe's well worth a try if you're in the mood for something different.

    An interesting free to play game with some potential to expand in future updates.

    Warframe 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.

    Some problematic menus pale in comparison to Warframe's real problem: a pervasive tendency toward repetition.

    Seriously like **** the critics that give this game such a low score. The last time any critic reviewed this game was like a year ago. TheSeriously like **** the critics that give this game such a low score. The last time any critic reviewed this game was like a year ago. The Devs, amazing as they are, literally put out new content AT LEAST once a month, and most often even more often. This is an amazing game and it is only every getting better and better with each update. I arrive years ago at update 7. It's on update 16.something now. While some might look at it and say "damn it's still not done". But that's what's so great. It's already more than a complete game (it felt complete way back before owning pets, spaceship combat, spaceships, pvp, void tower key raids, challenges, and prime warframes other than excel) I can't even name all of the great content but I've played over 700 hours and am still not bored yet. You don't need to spend a single cent on the game, but if you do, buy weapon slots and warframe slots!!! Expand

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

    The game is pretty much great.
    Lots of different warframes, lots of weapons, the whole big mod system, amount of lore - there's always more to get.

    The game is based on grinding mechanic - there's no "energy cap", you can play however much you want and you won't be punished for it. This tactic of DE means 2 things:
    -if you like grind you'll love it
    -if you have not so much time it will feel, like you're getting behind

    One can easily spend 1000+ hours and not have every single thing in the game, but it's ok. Only big whales (like me) feel an inner need of getting every single item and they can succeed.
    The game has a premium "money" called Platinum. You can ofc buy it in the shop for some $, but the real kicker is that it's tradable - you can exchange the things that you grinded for 3hours on Sunday evening for some Platinum and get yourself some warframe skins.

    I'm a free2play and through trading I got over 70k platinum (equivalent of 3500$) and spent it on different sh*t&giggles. Yes, if you want to have more than 4 warframes in your arsenal you have to spend 20platinum on extra slot, so you're encouraged to trade with others in order to get it. It's a really clever system, because the whole market is self balancing - even though I didn't spend a penny, someone had to buy the 70k platinum that I used, someone used their rl money on the game.

    To summarize:
    - game is great, but not if you despise repetitive farming
    - game is really fast-paced and easy-going - perfect, if you don't want to think too much

Ну серьезно, на gt1030 такого я уж точно не ожидал. Но а всё остальное оставляет желать лучшего, геймплей скучный до безумия, сиди стреляй в макак зажми кнопку и стреляй, всё... Баги на каждом шагу, каждый кто вообще запускал варфрейм должен был заметить как минимум багов 10. Но игру спасает оптимизация и FTP, донат тут спорная вещь потому что даже донатные вещи можно купить без доната. А во всем остальном, скукотень еще та. Expand
