    Warframe's daunting complexity doesn't detract from its delicious combat and flexible progression.

    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.

    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.

I will also include the disclaimer that I am not a fan of gunplay in video games.

    I've heard that, like Destiny, this game started out as a shell of an experience. However, here are a bunch of ways it is better than Destiny. First off, you don't need to shell out extra cash to get the proper experience. Additionally, it does not suddenly reset every handful years.The most important thing, however, is that they get MMO design right. Farming is deliberate, missions are varied, abilities are significant, builds are intricate, fashion is expressive, and trading is rewarding; all basic MMO design principles that Warframe gets so right, and Destiny gets so wrong.

    To top it all off, the narrative is on par with the best of the Star Wars franchise. The game starts slow, but trust me, stick it out until you awaken from the second dream. You'll know what that means when you get there; elaborating would be a huge spoiler; and if that doesn't finally hook you, feel free to move on.

The combat is smooth and fast paced and it can easily be single player or co-op. People only dislike it because it repeats the maps but with different doors. With fast paced action and ninja like moves(wall runs, wall slide, wall climb, etc) and a wide selection of craftable weapons, Warframe is a must have 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

Ignore any older reviews. This game is full of content, there are tons of things to unlock and upgrade. It is a free to play game that does very good with its micro transactions. You can earn everything in game by just playing. The game does have a small barrier to entry in that it has so much content its hard to figure everything out and you will want to do some outside research if you really want to spend a lot of time in the game. That's really the only thing I can fault it for. Expand

    Amazing F2P game with a really impressive development team. They are extremely transparent with what they are working on and get the communityAmazing F2P game with a really impressive development team. They are extremely transparent with what they are working on and get the community heavily involved through weekly devstreams and Q&A.
    Warframe is a constantly evolving game with new things added frequently.
    The fairest pay model I have ever seen. EVERYTHING but cosmetics can be acquired through normal gameplay, and cosmetics that cannot be acquired through normal gameplay can be acquired by selling materials or blueprints you do not need for the premium currency.

    However, Warframe still has yet to polish its new player experience, which holds the game back. A proper intro and tutorial are needed badly for any future expansion of its playerbase. As of now, getting started is the most difficult part of Warframe.

    The game could still use some work, but overall it's a solid game. The graphics are very nice and the game play is exceptionally fun. TheThe game could still use some work, but overall it's a solid game. The graphics are very nice and the game play is exceptionally fun. The concept of the game is interesting and with future updates could become perfect, but that is up to the developer to decide. 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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Don't waste your time by playing this **** game. Because this game doesn't have any good logic and the makers are illiterate.For example, they don't know what 'ARMOR' in this game means or each mission has enemies with many levels for example in a mission with level 15-20 during the mission, you will find level 22,25 or 28 that is bad for a new player and warframe's and e.t.c.They just make this game to giving money from you.I don't say it's a bad game, no. it's a good game.But the makers did it wrong Expand
