    A basically very simple game. That can rightfully be accused of being rather shallow and repetitious. So why the hell im I still playing it after 50hrs? I think its because:

    2) Graphics Very good, and i like the rather bleak and moody feel.
    3) Gameplay is smooth and easy, as is the matchmaking. Missions are fast paced, but everyone seems chilled and tolerant of newbie starters.
    4) But mainly its because its fun to play. Controls are solid, as is the gunplay. Melee is a bit frantic, but there is nothing wrong with it.
    5) Its free (ish). But I don't think they quite understood the idea of MICRO transactions. The store is very expensive which I think will harm the game in the long run. Its probably at least double what most people would expect. Although I would normally buy some initial credits to support the game writer, here its just to expensive to feel comfortable with.

    Overall, I think this is a great game to grab the odd 30mins on here and there. Play for free, and I cant see how you could be disappointed!

    Really 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.

The leveling system recently underwent a massive change, which made the game more challenging. It also opened up a much wider spectrum of upgrade possibilities than was available previously. The game still has some small room for improvement, but it is a heck of a lot of fun to play--and it's FREE!! Strongly recommended. Expand

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

    I had a lot of fun with the game for the first few days, so it pains me to have to write such a scathing review and score it so low. Let's start on a high note with the pros:

    I had a lot of fun with the game for the first few days, so it pains me to have to write such a scathing review and score it so low. Let's start on a high note with the pros:

    +Fun gameplay with a lot of different methods of customization. Modding your weapons, warframe(character), and sentinel(Pet) provides a lot of different avenues for progression.
    +There are (I believe)12 warframes to pick from, though you only get access to 3 out of the box.
    +You can potentially get access to all the content in the game w/o spending any money, excluding cosmetics such as colors.
    +A welcoming community and a section of the forum dedicated to helping new players and gets a respectable amount of traffic

    And now the low note. This is going to hurt, Warframe, but try to grit your teeth.
    ---If you do decide to spend money on the game, you'll find Warframe has one of the most expensive premium shops around. Buying a warframe can cost up to 25 dollars! Getting access to more than 18 colors(Not as many as it sounds) is 5$ a piece, and weapons range 5-15$!

    -----After you've spent hours farming the cash and crafting mats to build a weapon or warframe, you have to wait 12-72 hours for it to finish "building". But wait! If you spend a paultry 25-50 plat(The least plat you can buy is 5$ for 70 plat, the cheapest weapons, colors, and warframes being 75 plat, btw) you can rush it to get your hard-earned buy immediately. A laughably obvious inconvenience forced on the players in order to promote buying premium currency

    -The combat gets dull, after a while. The AI is pretty primitive, even for an indie game. Melee is gimmicky and with knockbacks and stuns abound, you're better off just keeping distance and picking enemies off. The game mistakes punishment for difficulty, if you're not careful it's very easy to be "stunlocked" to death, with very little you can do about it.

    -Expect a Diablo-level grind. The whole game is a grind and the only goal is to grind more, all the bosses are bullet sponges with little to no difficulty, the Infected(An enemy faction) are generally the hardest enemies you will fight, and that's only because of the stunlocking mentioned above.

    -Even though there are lots of options and customization, the game is plagued with balance issues. The Hek, Lex, and Dual Heat Blades will be the only weapon loadout you'll ever need. Half the cast can't even compete with other much stronger, more versatile Warframes. Health, Armor, and critical hit/damage mods are almost completely useless.

    -The levels are reused constantly. It's not uncommon to play on the same level multiple times within one short gaming session.

    -The handling leaves a lot to be desired. The game tries to be Assassin's Creed/Darksiders but it just doesn't have the polish things like wallrunning, sliding, and complex maneuvers need to function. Very rarely will you pull off super awesome stunts your friends will be wowed by. Once you get into the higher level content it all boils down to cover shooting because you just will not survive being in the middle of the grinder.

    To sum it all up, you pay out the ass for the conveniences premium currency offers, the game gets stale and very grindy, very quickly. I've read people praising the massive updates but they apply sweeping changes that completely alter the game, keeping it in a perpetual state of imbalance.

    Even then, the movement and combat mechanics seemed pretty awesome. If that was the only thing I was basing my rating on, that would be an 8.5.
    But the real kicker to the groin is the real money system. $20 will get you a cheap warframe, a weapon, and some respawns. (So if you die a lot, you end up having to pay just to continue playing the game)
    If you really want everything, you can pay $260, and you after some time you may end up spending even more money.
    Their greed has completely ruined what could have been great. If, instead of charging us large sums for absolutely nothing, they had provided a wealth of content and charged us reasonable prices, they could have had a gold mine, but right now the game tailors to spoiled rich kids.

    The game is ok, but it offers not enough for its value.
    Sure its F2P and EA, but if you decide to actually invest in it you do not get much for it:
    The thing is that you start with one 'warframe'. If you want another one you will have to pay. Of course there is the lack of P2W but that involves a relentless grind. So much grinding that it feels like the deliberately made it this way so

    There is no story at all.
    Tactics are limited to grouping up and hoping your teammates are able to help and cooperate. It is possible to work together I suppose but there is no easy way of communicating.

    Level design is repetitive yet confusing yet repetitive. Maps are divided in little zones and objectives are show by a logo at the edge of the zone you are currently in. Sometimes its just down the corridor, other times you have to look for a small hole in the wall way up or below, while enemies relentlessly attack you. If you die you can be revived by a teammate but if they are up ahead they will not be able to make it within 15 seconds before bleeding out. You can revive on the spot (enemies still there, surrounding your corpse and blocking your escape) up to 4 times a day for free. Do you need more? Wait or pay up!

    All in all they need more diversity in the levels, AI, increase loot drops a bit and offer way more value for the currency you can buy. Be aware of price differences between their website and steam packages, also buying more does not mean more platinum for your money!

    It is something that can grab your attention and keep it for a month but the grinding and repetitiveness will make you look for the next better thing.

Gimp your frame with a lame game mechanic to grind mods you need (to grind some more) in orokin voids. There's three enemy factions, they're all retarded and boring. AI is nonexistant, enemy scaling requires exploits to farm effectively. Several frames and most of the weapons are underpowered. "The devs play the game" but they don't care half as much as their marketing department wants you to believe.

    However, your time should still be worth something and I will rate it based on that. I have played around 40 hours and if there is one thing the game gets right, its to have you play the same repetitive template over and over all in the name of progression. When I open the map, I see all these planets that I still have to explore. But, in reality, its not really exploring when the same mode just gets recycled and the level slightly different to before, disguised as something new(because its on a different planet now).

    In a nutshell, the game has a few mission types, and basically assign them to different areas on different planets. Here and there is something unique, but its very rare. For example, one mission type is to hack 3 terminals in order to get data. You will do many of the same "hack 3 terminals to get data", only with some areas looking slightly different due to this procedurally generated mechanism. The problem is that these areas look very generic and can be ok for the first few hours, but after you have seen all mission types, everything feels very repetitive and just look the same. Oh, I saw this asset to the left on the previous mission. Now this asset is to the right. Its still the same damn asset I have seen a thousand times before.

    This game gets high praise due to the fact that its free, but if you had to pay 60 for it, the ratings would have been much, much lower. I tried to like it and grinded away, but its just too repetitive.

    If you are tight on cash, have time to waste, then this is for you. If you looking for a fantastic experience, from a perspective of what a video game should be, then I cannot recommend this.

    I give it a 6, but if I had to pay more than 20 for this, it would be a 4 or a 5.

    Would rate higher, but the AI spawning is really bad. There is no worse thing than clearing a room silently, walking out, and having an enemy alert everyone by walking in from the room you literally just cleared, or by actually spawning 3 ft. in front of you. Really is game breaking for me.

    I have played this game for maybe two years, then distanced myself, then came back because of a friend who wanted to play together (and then didn't even show up, the *****!) and now am off again.
    The good: it's an incredibly varied cooperative multiplayer with solid and fun mechanics. You can pick between a ridiculous number of different warframes, the titular power armors, each one with four different powers. While in Destiny you have three boring classes with very little to differentiate them from one another, in Warframe the designer's fantasy runs rampant and the powers are daringly different, creating extremely varied mechanics. Same goes for the hundreds of available weapons. So you grind and grind and don't get bored because you try something different every time, aided by the effort by Digital Extremes to constantly add new content, new material, new challenges.
    It's not pay to win: while investing at least a bit of money is advisable to purchase equipment slots, you just need to wait for a 75% discount, that is randomly distributed maybe once a month or so, and invest little more than 20$ to be set for the rest of the game. You can also sell equipment to other players if you really don't want to invest real money, but I have nothing against supporting the developers for their good work, and I also use platinum (the purchasable currency) to reduce grinding in some instances. You can also buy warframes and weapons for outrageous prices, but it's much better to do the related missions and earn them instead; not only they cost a premium, but you also miss the fun: what are you playing for? All in all, a totally fair earning model, IMO.
    The bad: most missions are mindless, old-school shootouts, where you confront thousands of enemies who keep spawning all around you. Forget about taking cover or tactically conquer an area piece by piece: you jump and zip left and right at light speed, shooting everything that moves - and everything that doesn't, just to be on the safe side. If you stay still for one second, you're probably dead, and tactics only lie in the way you use your powers and combine them with your allies'. There are inventive warframes, with tactical powers that would be great to use in a game like Deus Ex, but are essentially useless in this mindless frag fest. There are infiltration missions that aim to implement a different approach, but most people hate them - for a reason.
    There's so much material, so many different things to do, that you can be hooked for months or even years without getting bored, especially if you try to discover things on your own rather than just read the Wiki, but the gameplay always remains simplistic and repetitive.

Great content for value, I've gotten some cosmetics for the warframes I've played with and I'm going to continue leveling them up and acquiring more, but what I like most is that I can play at my own pace, whenever there isn't anything worth trying out and the game's economy doesn't punish me for wanting to play this casual. Good stuff.

    It has great mechanics too. Fights are enjoyable, boss fights are mostly ok for the single player, though they get more difficult than I would have wished for. And the RPG elements are well done, they make me wish for more upgrades and customization options which kind of shows that they achieved what they are intended for.

    It's not perfect, but offers a lot more value than games from other publishers that were released after it.

    Been here from late open beta when artifacts/super jump was a thing. Seen ups and downs of seasons and yielding a massive 5.8k hours of playtime.

    Not everything is perfect, but it is a game that rewards you for playing. Grindy for sure. Community is fine. Gamers choice, for those who seek more from games.

    The slight minus comes from content flood at start since not all can take on such massive amount of information that is spewed left and right from start to finish. Progression is confusing but streamlined with several "main" objectives of as planetary relays and main storyline mission, which opens up new aspects of the game. Speeding through the process can burn days or weeks. Which brings in the mastery system albeit the grind, mastery rank.

    Mastery exp is gained from ranking up new weapons/frames/pets/sentinels/planetary progress etc. Mastery rank from 0 to 10 should be quite fast just from the planetary/relay progression alone, but there comes the free-to-play slower, slots for weapons/frames, premium currency platinum. Community can help you with that, but to earn that premium currency through free-to-play one must know little bit of trading and have mastery rank of 2 or more (daily trades determined by ones mastery). Almost everything in this game is craftable or possible to get from relics (randomized treasure which are awarded from playing the game), not to mention biweekly trader baro that brings its own wares of salt and exotic wares..

    So you made past mastery rank 10? Congratulations, at this point you should have access to most of the content, but it has still more to give. This is but the start. but just enough.
    Last unlocks come at mastery rank 16, for the randomized riven mods.

You don't get new characters by leveling up, you pay for them in a value that you can either grind or pay real money for. And that is warframe's only flaw, but as you can see this game is alive after 8 years and that is because of it's awesome core gameplay and new player frendliness. Expand

You level your profile (or Mastery) rank, which allows you to unlock some of the later weapons, and there are the levels that your weapons gain over time. It is true that the game does get repetitive, but it's nice to always come back after a while. I do recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a good game in Third Person. Expand

    The lore is taking shape, the UI is more intuitive, new game play mechanics are being implemented and old ones improved or revamped among other positive changes that enhance the game experience as it continues to develop in Beta.

    The developers have a good reputation with the players of the Warframe Community.
    They involve themselves in the forums, communicate to players via social media, and are also involved in the in-game chat. Working closely with the community, they have been able to tailor the game to what the players are looking for.

    Being in beta, there is always room for improvement.
    With each update release, the game gets buggy but you can expect that with most games during update phases - especially online multiplayer games. Smooths out with the hot fixes.
    The game is not perfect yet but I gave it a 10 because of how much it has improved since the time of its release. I also gave it a 10 because of the relationship the developers have with the players.

    I have been playing since closed beta but have only been actively playing since Update 9.
    I really like how much the game has changed and I think I will be playing for a while longer.

I still enjoy discovering mod combos, team combos, weapons' feeling (there are soooo many different of them, really).

    For those who say: It's a repetitive grinding game, i'll say:
    Each major update (we are currently on the 14th) you have several new weapons, new warframes, new ennemies, new bosses, new maps, new game mechanics, new interface, new story, new Gameplay (!!!!), new mods........
    If you want a funny game that evolves REALLY, Warframe is, in my opinion THE BEST game you can reach. And you know what? It(s freeee... i see some bad ratings dated "2013". Come back here, and dare say the same thing. (Impossible, it's not the same game anymore). It's true.

    If you are affraid about pay to win Games:
    You can get EVERYTHING without any dollar if you are perseverant, and have a lot of time to spend in a game.
    Plus, you CANNOT have everything with virtual money. In fact, you can only buy specific things with virtual money. You can spend 400000000 dollars, you will still have to play a lot to get resources, and craft, and up your rank...
    Plus you can actually trade virtual money with other players. So, you can get it without any dollar.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. There is only one thing you need to know about Warframe: It's free.

    Oh, maybe I didn't make myself clear enough. When I say that Warframe is free, I mean, literally speaking, it is free. Still not clear enough? Alright, I'll elaborate. Apart from two different types of items - appearance items (such as skins and coloring pallets) and weapon/Warframe slots - it is possible for all players to access almost all types of in game items and entities (apart from a few that are no longer available to everyone). In this manner, it is possible for you to obtain every Warframes (characters or so to speak), every weapons, every non-visual-based items and the likes. Of course, there are conditions to fulfill, and obtaining everything will most likely take up a good portion of your time (isn't this what you are looking for?), but the point is, it is perfectly possible to play Warframe in the long run without paying a single cent. It's your choice.

    So, what is Warframe? In this game, you are basically a character known as "Tenno" who fights battles within a futuristic solar system. You will be teaming up with 3 other Tennos (this is a 4 player co-op game) to complete missions laid out by Lotus, a female commander issuing you orders. Nah, she is nicer than your ex-girlfriend, so don't worry about that.

    You will basically be facing three separate forces, Grineer, Corpus and the Infestation (think of the three races in Starcraft if you want to get a better idea). There are different types of missions, ranging from elimination, rescue, spy, to defense and rescue. As for weapons, basically you get to equip a primary weapon (rifle, shotgun, sniper and many others that are hard to categorize), a secondary weapon (categorization is hard for this as well) and a melee weapon (sword, mace, fist... you know the deal). As for your character, you will be using one out of the somewhat 10-ish (slightly less than 20, though the number is gradually increasing as more update comes by) Warframes. Each Warframe comes with different stats, such as self-repairing shields, like those in halo, health, energy (mana) and speed. Still, more importantly, each Warframe has its own unique set of 4 skills. These skills are great assets for the players as most of the times they will come in handy. One thing to note is that gender is preset, so those transsexuals don't have to fake their gender anymore, which is, well ... you decide if it's good or not. There are also mods (modifications) that you can insert into your weapons and Warframes to make them much stronger than they originally are.

    Oh and there are parkour. Learn how to press "WASD" + "LShift" + "LCtrl" + "Space" in fluid coordination. It will be helpful and painful, but you will definitely need them.

    Simple?

    Unlike many co-op shooters, Warframe definitely has its merits. One of the most apparent distinction of the game is that it has a leveling system that can be found in most MMOs. You can level up both your weapons and Warframes to a maximum rank of 30. Moreover, you can rank up your mods as well to make them more powerful. In this way, Warframe won't be a simple "run-shoot-kill see-score go-sleep" type of game. Never. There are things more important than that.

    Another merit of Warframe is that there are frequent updates. When I say frequent, I mean FREQUENT, as in one big update per month or so. There will be new game modes, Warframes, weapons, mods ... etc. I mean, come on, who thinks that L4D2 came too fast after L4D1 is released? I do. Who is still waiting for L4D3 after all these years? I am. Who thinks that Gabe Newell should fulfill the unsaid promise of completing the trilogies of Valve games? I do. Come on, we have been waiting for L4D3 and Portal 3 and HL3, and we are sick and tired of being sick and tired of waiting. This won't happen for Warframe though. The game has a gradual and comfortable pace of updating. You get new contents every now and then, and they usually blends well with the game. Usually.

    Still, like most games, there are pros and cons of Warframe and I have to sincerely admit that there are shortcomings with this game when compared to other games. One major shortcoming (I won't say flaw) of this game is that it lacks a concrete story line. Apart from some trivial storytelling, there really aren't much of a tale going on. There are stories told, I'm not saying there aren't, but they are rather weak. I know, that is not their aim, and that is not really the point of Warframe, but compared to the rich (though monotonous) storyline of L4D and Portal, Warframe needs to good a better job here.

    Also, the game can be rather repetitive. You know, this applies for most Coop shooters, so there really isn't much to say about this. Yeah, repetitive.

    So, in general, try Warframe. It's free. If you don't like it, drop it. Simple as that.

    1)It's the best GRINDING game, It uses dirty psychological tricks(gambling) to get you addicted and this makes a lot of people frustrated go to point 4).
    2a)If you don't have any good rivens or rare mods you will see the other people destroying everything and you will can sit down and watch the match.
    2b) Random is a big words considering you see really "weird" random events and generations, maybe a "conditioned random" term is more appropriate...After you roll a riven 100 times and you get only zoom ,recoil and ammo and then you realize a lot of other people get damage, multishot and critical with an unrolled riven..
    3)To get some essential mods you will need a lot of grinding and time(months or years) but if you farm and sell stuff 10 hours per day(for at least 6 months) or you pay cash for platinum(thousand of dollars to get everything)... hey i am playing an action game not a TCG!
    4)Very often in public games you will get really bad toxic players or totally idiots that will ruin your day.
    People will give you free idiot, retard or whatever in their languages screaming on their mics because you don't spam energy with trinity so they can destroy everything and you just have to press the keys 2 and 4. You will get an idiot because for a bug you find yourself after a mission in a solo mission of another person. You will get a **** because you haven't disconnected from the previous squad after 5 seconds. More other hundreds of these nice episodes...
    And this happened in few months...If you like these kind of persons then this is the right game for you.
    5) there is no or little information in game, you need to rely on the external wiki page made by fans. When you begin you have absolutely no idea what to do and you will waste precious resources you will need later...The fun is you will not have any idea even after months or years because often other people will complete a mission in few seconds and you will just press "w"
    to reach the extraction point.
    6) Full of bugs and after 30 minutes of mission you will get a change host and BANG! you loose the loot you were "working for".
    7a) There is not an internal market system to sell or buy objects in game, you rely on the trading chat and often it's a mess and you must rely on external sites...
    7b)Most of the time for the point 1) you will see absurd prices overall for rivens, 10.000 or even 20.000 plat(one of the in game currencies) , 20.000 platinum are $1000 and you can't convert plat to dollars so i don't understand(really i do but it's better if i don't write anything about...) why people ask and other buy at these prices...
    8) The gameplay becomes repetitive after few months, the only objective will be to get more powerful weapons and mods to humiliate newbies destroying everything on the map in few seconds, on the same mission you have repeated thousand(and thousand again) of times.
    The PVP was the only hope but is practically dead because people love to repeat the same mission thousand an thousand of times!
    The endless missions where you can test your skills are used by everyone to level their weapons and frames.. this means you can't go further.
    9)The graphic and design are nice.
    10a)You can play it for free if you want a new job as "tenno" 10 hours per day. If you don't have at least 8 free hours per day it's better you start to pay hundred of dollars to get the new powerful weapon, the last frame or the "god" riven mod that will make you COOL AND POWERFUL!
    10b)If you are not powerful and cool enough please don't try the Sorties missions(because i am fkin tired to repeat 10 times the same mission because people has no idea what to do for the point 5) or because they try to kill 10 level 100 bombards with an unmodded pangolin sword or their brand new MK1-braton..)
    11)Full of weapons! Yes there are thousand(again)of weapons!! And do you wanna know something? 99% of them are just pure crap, you will need to build them, grinding the resource to build and use them a dozen of times(no not thousand this time sorry) to upleveling your experience and to rank them! But hey it's the same crap so you need to polarize it to use your powerful mods so you will need to rank it again another dozen of times, and if a weapon need 6 forma you will do that totally hundred of times on the same mission... And All of this to discover you will make 1% of the total damage and killed 1 enemy while the other guys destroyed everything.
    13)Nice for few months after that you will understand that something is wrong repeating thousand and thousand(yes thousand!) the same mission to get an useful mod or a part for something you need!

    It's a such waste because this game has great potentials throwed away by extreme grinding and boring missions.
    After i wasted many hours just to find hard contend, endgame or something offering a real challenge, they nerfed all the enemies to make this game just a click game using OP abilities or spamming melee most of the time.

    Cons
    - VERY repetitive maps. I don't find the actual gameplay to be repetitive at all, in fact the gameplay get's funner every time i play it, but the maps sure as heck are repetitive. dozens and dozens of different missions and i've only noticed about 5 unique maps.(keep in mind i haven't unlocked all planets but my statement still stands).

    - No real story. When i first started playing it started off with a cool quest to hunt down someone who tried to capture you, and it seemed like this would lead into a really cool and interesting story. Unfortunately after you complete this quest, any remnants of a story disappears, and the game just becomes nothing more than hunting for loot to build more gear and doing the occasional event.

    This game is amazing and has amazing potential. If a proper and immerse story and allot more unique maps are added. This will without a doubt be my favorite game of all time.

The items that really influence your experience(item and warframe slots and super chargers) are pretty cheaply obtained, and you can trade in game for the currency to do so from other players, meaning even a completely free player can purchase anything in the cash shop through dedication and trading.

This game has MAJOR flaws the number 1 flaw of this game is that the entire game is just grind ALL OF IT, it gives you the impression that the grinding will pay off eventually but it doesn't. You get no where there is no end game NOTHING, you just find a new weapon or a new character and level them up.

    Another flaw is not really of the game but more the development team. The team is completely mis-staffed there is too many content creators and not enough people left to fix stuff, amongst the playerbase there is a popular opinion of the team that creates stuff isn't the team who fixes issues within the game. That is correct but the real issue is resource management.

    Overall game design and direction come into play also. There seems to be a severe lack of clear direction when it comes to overall balance. At first they took the stand of every weapon should be balanced and compensated with mods. However now they seemed to have changed their view on it in favor of a tiering system that is utterly broken. Generally a tiering system works in a way that weapons that require higher stats out preform those with lower requirements. This is not the case it just appears to be random.

    This is a f2p game afterall so the monization of content has to be questioned is it good, is it bad, inbetween? Answer, its misleading. As a new player in a F2p game the first thing I do is work out how much something costs a warframe will set you back an average of 20$ weapons around 10. That is just too expensive considering the games longevity solely depends on trying different weapons and warframes.

    All of that being said there are still plenty of positives when it comes to this game. As other users have pointed out in much greater detail the mechanics and the sheer amount of fun that can be had whist playing in co-op are this games strong points whether they are strong enough to outweigh poor staff management and overall incompetence when it comes to game design. I don't know that is something people will have different opinions on.

    Oh boy, this title deserves a new, more up to date metacritic site. It has come a long way since release. I have never played a game where the developers do such a great job of adding content on a regular basis. The game in itself is one of the best I've ever played. It has a steep learning curve for understanding mods, upgrades, crafting, etc, but it's well worth it! 11/10 easy

    ITS FREE TO PLAY!!! Stunning Graphics !!! Amazing game play!! Easy controls, Full controller setup A+!! they do have big updates very often but atleast its always something cool and interesting there adding. Some levels are the same looking...but I don't complain about it...why?...because its free to play and I don't have to pay! so think about that before you give it a bad review!

    Basically, it's a game where you become a space ninja in a super-advanced-parkour-space-and-time-rupturing-suit of your choice, where you are told by a lady in a silly purple hat to sabotage and kill anything that is not you.

    This is probably my favourite free-to-play game of all time.

    Even though the game is free to play, it is in no way pay to win, and it has a great player economy. I always set goals for things I want to get in-game, which personally makes the experience even better.

    I highly recommend this game to anyone who wants a fun co-op game to play with friends, or even if you just want to play with random people online.

    One of the greatest free to play games of our time, and most fair one. Warframe does not indulge in questionable and manipulative business practices a lot of other free to play developers do, it keeps monetisation fair and simple, clearly communicated and it's economy is player driven.

    When picking up Warframe one should keep in mind a few things.
    - It's a BIG game. There is lots of stuff to do, lots of places to go, lots of game systems. It's easy to get overwhelmed if you rush too much and don't bide your time getting acquainted with said game systems.
    - It is a loot-centered game, in a sense spiritually similar to likes of Diablo, Destiny and many others. To get cool stuff you need to grind for it. That's the main gameplay loop, and there is no way (except platinum, but later on that) around it. You probably won't like it if you want everything given to you right away or with minimal effort.
    - Don't get turned off by platinum as fast. It is not exclusively obtained with real money as many ppl are conditioned to expect in modern gaming. Platinum can be traded freely between players for in-game items. That's where player driven market comes into play. You are free to trade with other players for platinum in exchange for mods, prime parts and other stuff you got. It is totally possible to obtain "platinum exclusive" unlocks and purchases without investing a dime into Warframe. It is really up to player's choice. While it may be tough very early on to obtain items of value, you will be able to get some pretty soon (depending on the pace at which you complete quests and learn the game). Plenty and more opportunities to make some platinum once you get a solid grasp of game's basics.
    - In addition to that (or if you think it's too much work) - game generously awards you with 75% platinum discounts every so often, and that platinum will last you a long time if you don't go spending it carelessly (or on easily farmable resources).
    - Don't get overly obsessed with "prime" stuff. Some of it may not be available at "this time right here and now" and you may have to wait or trade with other players to get it. It may be pretty expensive (platinum wise). But the point many new players miss is that you don't *need* prime stuff to participate in end-game activities. Is it marginally better? Yes. Does it look cooler? Up to personal taste. Do you *need* it? No, this feeling is called "want", not "need". Can you obtain it eventually? Most certainly yes! (except the only and one founders exclusive Excalibur prime and 2 weapons that came with it, but there is something else for excalibur fans, much cooler)
    - To expand on last point - prime stuff gets removed from loot tables every now and then, so you can't farm it anymore. Then it gets added back for some time again every so often, so everyone who missed it can get it again without utilizing player trading. Combined with the point about difference between "need" and "want" - you can either wait for it to become available again or trade with other players to get it here and now. It's entirely up to you to decide how much it's worth to you personally, and if you should wait or trade. If you think it's not worth platinum players asking for it - don't buy it off them, just wait. Inevitably it will be dropping once more and drop in price as well.

    Overall it's an amazing game that truly shows how much a free to play game can achieve without resorting to manipulation, gambling and moral bankruptcy.
    It is definitely far from done yet, there may be some bugs every now and then (that so to say get fixed rapidly with hotfixes), there may be some gameplay elements that could be better (and surprise - they do get better as game goes on, for example movement 1.0 vs movement 2.0 update).
    I had this game on my radar since it's early days and looking back at the path behind leaves me immensely impressed. From really modest beginnings it got where it is, and it leaves me only more excited for what's to come.

    My advice - give this game a fair chance to grow on you, and it most likely will. If you find out you're not into games of this type - you lose nothing since it's free, but you've at least tried the best game of this type out there.

    This game should get it's critic score reseted, or only count reviews after a certain time frame (2015 most likely), so that reviews referring to a game that was COMPLETELY different, don't distort the real score and perception of anyone checking metacritic. Warframe in it's actual form is a role model for a polished game with depth, and the metascore is OBJECTIVELY not accurate.

    There's very little of negative I can say about Warframe and the developers Digital Extreme. As of this review I am confident saying that this is the best Free to Play game I have ever played.

    We as gamers all have different expectations of the experience we wish to have playing our games. I understand this. But personally, I want to feel like I'm wanted in a game, especially in a multiplayer game such as Warframe.

    Pros:
    - CONSTANT transparent updates from the developers through consistent live streams and media posts.
    - CONSTANT gifts in game as a thank you for playing, it truly feels like we are appreciated and wanted to be in the universe of Warframe.
    - Evolving gameplay and narrative arc that only expands on itself throughout updates.
    - Pushing their own comfort zones as a company to add aspects to the game in order to appeal to as many players as they can.
    - TOP NOTCH graphics for a free game, I'm consistently impressed with the beautiful lighting and effects of the world and the warframe abilities.
    - Microtransactions are NEVER forced or make you feel like they are necessary, because they aren't. You can literally purchase anything in the game for absolutely no money investment at all, truly miraculous.
    - Combat is fast and dynamic with lots of movement choices, weapon choices, and warframe choices

    Neutral:
    - PvE centered game ( Many people enjoy PvP and I would be remiss if not mentioning that PvP in Warframe is...lacking ) However, they never claim to be anything but PvE focused.

    Cons:
    - Sometimes there's VERY long patches of content draught, making the game get stale at times. I'm talking 9 months once with no content release.
    - At times the nature of a video game being a video game is that you can burn out on it, and it happens, no fault of the game or the devs. I've spent over 2000 hours in Warframe and I've pretty much gotten what I want out of it.
    - RNG RNG RNG RNG. Warframe is a drop table simulator, Everything you need is rng in the levels. You want a mod to drop so you can improve your weapons? rng You want a Warframe part to drop so you can build that shiny new character? rng You need a rare item to drop in a mission to build something? rng

    All in all, I'd say you should truly give Warframe a very very fair chance, it's what I would call the Apex of F2P games out right now.

The universe is also really cool and kinda unique Human with Mental connection to Some robot that act like Space ninja with guns and Sword is kinda cool there is also the mods part which is great because you can upgrade your weapon and Frame without having to switch to something you don't like. Also the optimisation is Fantastic i almost never saw the game Run poorly except in some Hub area which is totally acceptable. Now the thing that must people will complain about the Grinding its a free to play game so the grinding must be or some **** Well its not bad at all i would even say its close from Path of exile in a way which is the sample when it comes to free to play. Yes you will have to repeat mission over and over again but there is so much variety in mission Types that it doesn't really get annoying Extermination,Rescue,Defense,Move the Payload,Space Battle,Sabotage, Find Data,Help Rebel Leave a station and Much more there is so much i can't remember them all. Also all level are procedural so the map change almost every time kinda like Diablo games does. There is as of right now 33 different warframe without counting their Prime version they have Different ability so kinda 33 classes. The give you a choice between 3 warframe at first And Excalibur the mascot is pretty much one of the best Warframes so see it the way you want. I have 80 hours clocked in and still enjoy the game very much i have seen some Full price game way worst than this i am Looking at you both Destiny and Division and even if you would want to play a certain Warframe you can buy a 51$ platinum pack for 1000 platinum average warframes cost between 300 and 500 platinum and buy the ones you like. Which game will give 80 hours of content and more for around 40$ and All the DLC's are include in its Free to play Form. They also are releasing a Open world in the next big update and guess what its Free. THIS IS HOW YOU DO FREE TO PLAY peoples Make the players want spend money on your game not Force the player to Spend money your game. I could keep on going but I would reach the words limit quickly PLAY THE GAME ! anyway its free what you have to waste also give him a chance like 10 to 15 hours to start really enjoy everything it as to offer.

    The history concept of the game is very well defined, as it resembles a war of races through the universe, having the planets as fighting pits.

    However, it's kind of difficult to become really strong because of it's highcost micro-economy. Without some platinum, you harshly can get new weapons and/or characters, as well as a lot of customization. So in that way, it gets limited.

    But hey, it's free. Has mindblowing graphics. And we can't get everything can we?

    For me as an founder (playing since the closed beta) i can really understand that many people criticize(d) issues like bad AI, melee system, being forced to spend real money and other stuff.
    I can all agree with them. But the game as a whole has continously improved.

    Improvements (Pro):

    1) Clans, Relais (trading/ interaction with other players)
    2) improved AI
    3) individual moves for all kinds of weapons, overall new stamina/ damage/ skill system
    4) quests which grant you access to new frames, weapons equipment and least but not least A STORY.
    5) almost no necessity to spend real money since almost everything, beside accesoires and decoration,
    can be obtain from farming/ trading
    6) areas like the Void (unique drops) can now be accessed without spending money for keys (5)

    Points of criticism (Con):
    1) still a pain in the arse to farm some rare ressources
    2) minor bugs
    3) repetitive map design on some tilesets
    4) it takes a lot of time to craft some wepons or other equipment
    5) the game isn't very self explaining and thus very confusing for new players
    6) some ressources can only be obtained by checking "alerts" which grant you the cance to farm your
    desired stuff... so check the alert section all the time
    7) to get more weapon/ warframe-slots you HAVE to spend money (i think 3 slots for frames, primary,
    secondary, melee)

    Conclusion:
    So in the end i would say Warframe is a very good game afterall. Of course there are a lot of points to criticize, but it's F2P. If you have any problems ingame you will always get help from other players (personal experience). Allthough Warframe is a very simple game it is still fun to play (solo or coop), because you have a variety of playstyles to choose from and a now very solid storyline to follow.

    with kind regards

    Warframe gets by on style alone. Keep that in mind when you fight a boss or clear a mission 20 times in a row to get that one weapon part that won't show it's face. This game is grindy and tedious and repetitive and even a bit glitchy at times. But why do I, as well as millions of other people enjoy playing it so much? Style.

Any other game would pull the aforementioned grind off horribly. It takes a team like the one at Digital Extremes, the developers of Unreal Tournament, to make this work. Warframe is one of the only games where you can front flip forward and land on your sword lodged in a space nazi and pump his buddies full of shotgun shells that explode. The combat is fast fluid and fun. The graphics are marvelous even on the lowest settings possible, and it's free to play. The words Free To Play usually has a stigma behind it, as it usually can mean, "Pay-To-Win". Warframe is more along the lines of "Pay-To-Win-Faster", as nearly everything in the game can be acquired without spending real money. Sure, you can buy one of the best guns in the game, but then you still have to level it up, fit it with the appropriate mods, level up the mods, and learn how to use it to the best of your ability.

    So in conclusion, This game barely get by with an 8, only because it has had enough content and fun and style to keep me on it for nearly 1000 hours now.

    Gotta love the HUGE disparity between user review score and critic review score.

    In general, I hate first-person shooters. I love Warframe, and it keeps getting better and better because it's a constant work in progress. A lot of the original complaints about the game -- repetition, relatively few levels, uninspired bosses, etc. are being addressed and disappearing. Many of the bosses are incredibly unique and require some creativity, not just having maximum levels and equipment and aiming skills, in order to beat them.
    Think Halo meets Ninja Gaiden.

    What I love about Warframe that sets it so far apart from other shooters is the mobility the Tenno have (bullet jump, double jump, run along and up walls with no limits, gliding descent) combined with the strong diversity of strategies. You have your heavy armor Tenno who can power through a bullet blizzard while mowing down hordes of hideous Grineer with a giant axe, you have the master of deception that can get them all shooting at the wrong target while picking baddies off by the dozen with a modded sniper, a Tenno who can unleash an ability that makes all the baddies shoot at each other, and many, many others, all of whom are roughly equally viable when you get the strategy right.

    Graphics are really freaking good for a free-to-play game. Great use of my graphics card. Looks like it actually belongs on PS4/XB1 instead of being simplistic crap you usually get with F2P.

    And it's not "pay to win" because you can't buy levels, can't buy experience, and can't buy your way into the next areas. Everything that's available to buy can also be farmed, with the exception of decorations. It's "pay to skip farming," which can get repetitive if you're trying to build up to make something specific. But I guess that's what keeps you playing -- that there's more to keep getting. Also, increasing Mastery Rank requires building up affinity with many different pieces of equipment, so not only are you rewarded for trying out multiple different loadouts and strategies, you *have to* try out different loadouts and strategies if you want to progress further in the game. You won't like every single loadout, but it turns out it's really more a matter of style and which enemies you're facing than it is a matter of "there are only a few good weapons and Tenno."

    The best Free to Play game available on any platform. 100% recommend.

    Warframe teaches you that failure is the beginning of a success.
    It started as a typical grinding Pay to Win F2P game. But right now it makes the people who have time but don't have the money and the vice versa at equal footing...

    MORE THAN 1800 **** HOURS IN THE GAME, Best Game Ever. Really great game. It has large updates that are put out each month. It keeps getting better. Very polished gameplay. 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.

    I'd like to start this review with a quick message to Digital Extremes, the developers of this game:

    Thank you. This game was rejected by big names, and the devs almost went bankrupt, but they decided to put more in it. It went into the shadows and started to grow silently, away from advertisement, only being found through a search box. It grew, and grew, and grew, until one day:

    This game was rejected by big names, and the devs almost went bankrupt, but they decided to put more in it. It went into the shadows and started to grow silently, away from advertisement, only being found through a search box. It grew, and grew, and grew, until one day: October 8th, 2017, where Steve Sinclair, the video game director of Warframe, decided to make it explode, and recorded a few seconds of the Plains Of Eidolon teaser in Times Square, NYC, then it went supernova. Plains Of Eidolon update was sent out, the community basically doubled, and the players were satisfied.

    I've been playing since June 11th, 2017, and I've been having a blast, and have recently sworn to no longer spend money on Warframe and grind for it all, and I'm glad I did that because it made my experience, my enjoyment, with the game skyrocket. The AAA visuals of the game, the only game that doesn't drop frames when lagging, the customization of everything (which if there was a thing called too much customization, Warframe breaks out in laughter at that), the platinum economy (platinum, Warframe's premium currency) through trading, the community, and it as a whole just impresses me, and the devs, unlike other developers, actually communicate with their players through things like Twitter and the forums. The content releases are free, and the only things you're spending money on is what you want. You see something you want, you purchase it, and you move on.

    Overall, this game made me want to support them, and I'm willing to support them however I can.
    This is my Warframe review.
    Thanks for reading,

    Let me clarify: levels are randomly generated everytime- It takes an hour of gameplay to realize this. Running out of lives doesn't mean you can't play anymore- you just can't revive for the level if you die after being incapacitated and you're not saved by teammates in time.

    You should take Warframe for what it is- a run'n'gun time with friends whenever you have a break. and how comes none mentioned the stunning particle effects? It looks like a tech demo at times!

    Promises on content never delivered as supposed to be.. Content in this game got so out of touch with their own twisted views on what the hell this game even supposed to be. This game is basically dead and Digital Extremes killed it themselves. Not worth playing anymore, you'd just be wasting your time.

    Actual Review:
    The game-play on this game is quite frankly, amazing. "Space Ninja" is often the name that gets out and it's pretty accurate. You shoot, slide, jump, jump+slide, then kill people (or whatever they are) and It's really, reallyyyyy, smooth.

If you you know Anthem (that game by EA, which you know, crap), think of the ideas and hopes people had in that game and you get this game and even better, FOR FREE. It is a 3rd person looter shooter game with a great melee system. I suggest watching YouTube game-plays as my words cannot describe how amazing it is.
    The story is, well, non-existent until the second dream quest (mid way?) where it is pretty well made.
    The devs has stuck with the game for quite some time now, and they actually just released an update to the melee system just now. Also the game HAS ITS OWN CURRENCY CIRCULATION, you can buy in game money (plat) but you can get it for free, which i address in the "addressing neg reviews" part
    It's quite daunting at first though, you will have to be a pretty good researcher, which I thought was stupid until I was a full straight week playing the game alt-tabing between wiki and the game like a freaking god. It's pretty fun for me, can't say how it will be to you but give it try, i know I was suprised.

    Addressing Neg Reviews.
    I really hope people give it more time and actually understand the game. A lot of the negative reviews seem (not sure though) to only be at early game and not actually experiencing the entirety of the game. Frankly, they don't understand it. They say that the currency is crap. You buy $20 of real money to get platinum or plat which is worth a "cheap warframe" and not worth it. Here's the thing, YOU CAN GET PLAT WITHOUT PAYING A DIME, once you understand how it works. One, NEVER buy warframes, or anything really in the in-game store. Where then you ask? You buy them from other players using plat, which you get by selling parts. That is the beauty of the game's currency, they get circulated around the players, it doesn't just disappear. You farm parts which isn't that long, then go to chat and sell of those parts for plat. PEOPLE BUYS THEM. Which gives you platinum to buy from other players. This game is completely free to play, since you can get the buyable currency from other players. Two, the "grind" to get desired warframe or weapon isn't as long as it seems, as there's two ways to get it. The first being the obvious, you farm the necessary parts and build it, which does take a while depending on the warframe/weapon since your farming specifics. The second is a lot faster; you still farm but not necessarily towards the thing you want. Farm any prime parts instead, then sell the items you get and not want through the marketplace and get plat. Then buy the parts, also from other people. I wanted to get this out there because people see the prices and compare it to real money, "ohh it cost $1000 bucks for one single mod?" Yes you can do that if your an idiot or want to support the devs, or you can play the game (Which really is one of the best looter shooter there is to date: 2019) and sell the parts you don't want, they buy the things you do.

The ability to play solo, with friends, or with random players, allows flexibility with anyone's gaming style and there is a lot of customization you can do with your character. Granted without the ability to trade items with other players makes it a little harder to obtain some items, it does allow for a more satisfying feeling when you finally find the item that you've been wanting for awhile.

    The game does feature an ingame store but I have yet to find a reason to actually use it. Most if not all of the items available in the store can be found in the game world, and seeing as the majority of content is PVE there really aren't too many things that could be considered overpowered.

    It's a fun game and players should at least give it a chance before looking at the 69 that meta critic has given it.

Shooting fairs much better and it's satisfying to pick off your enemies from afar using the game's large arsenal, whether it be an automatic rifle or a good old fashioned bow. This leads me to my next problem with the game. I know that Digital Extremes has put in considerable effort into making newer environments for the game, however, it still isn't enough. Long range encounters are a rarity and it completely eliminates the need for you to ever touch the sniper rifle. Levels often take place in ships and tight corridors, which is still fun, but when overused in the way that warframe does, after a few sessions the game starts to feel like a grind, and you really get tired of the visuals, which is a shame considering Warframe has beautiful graphics, but it is marred by the repetitive art style and level design. Having said this, it still isn't enough to keep me from playing this game as it offers a great upgrade system of mods for weapons and warframe, as well and satisfying and responsive gunplay, you'll have no regrets jumping into this game, especially since the game is free and the devs are already starting to address the problems I have listed.

    Warframe is a shockingly polished free-to-play action game that boasts great visuals, gameplay, and replay value. Unfortunately, grinding and odd design choices bog down the late-game experience.

    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.
