    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.

    I like the monster massacre. The increasing challenge of defence and survival waves. The good looks of the game. I love Ordis's personalityI like the monster massacre. The increasing challenge of defence and survival waves. The good looks of the game. I love Ordis's personality and his jokes. I love the various weapons, the customization process and trying them out for various tasks. I love the combat acrobatics. Also how you can color everything the way you like it. I love how easy you get into groups with other people and how you naturally support each other and fight side by side. And I love how you have to pass actual tests to rank up in the game. Good ideas, good implementation, solid gameplay. Expand

    Within the last month this game has gotten me to dump 150 hours into it already, more than I usually play other games all combined. Its a F2PWithin the last month this game has gotten me to dump 150 hours into it already, more than I usually play other games all combined. Its a F2P but you wouldn't necessarily guess that hopping in for the first time. There is no pay to win system, and everything including the 'premium currency' can be earned without paying a dime. Having a group to play with makes it much better. Its rather grindy but thats the kind of genre its supposed to be. For people who like games like Borderlands, Destiny, and PoE. And since I'm writing this at the same time that Destiny 2 is newly released on PC, this game has loads more content and reasons to keep playing that Destiny. The only thing I'd give this game on Destiny 2 is the overall polish and graphics. Besides that, this F2P game blows a triple A title like Destiny 2 out of the water and if anything exposes how complacent the gaming community has become with these huge publishers just recycling assets, slapping a new title on it, adding some micro transactions, and calling it good. Give you money to a dev team who truly cares about their playerbase and continues to innovate instead of making money grabs. 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

    This game is very good, which has been constantly developed for several years by adding new content and improving the old one. Unfortunately,This game is very good, which has been constantly developed for several years by adding new content and improving the old one. Unfortunately, there is a very high entry threshold which means a lot of people will just opt out (which is a pity). In this title, first of all, the story deserves praise, which in my opinion is one of the best and very extensive. Expand

    "the good outweighs the bad"

    warframe might start as a 10 star game for many. good shooting and slashing mechanics, cool visuals, awesome sound! you will not believe that this game is free.
    but as we progress, some will start encountering questionable design decisions. many systems are more convoluted than they should be, or just not awfully player friendly, and too drawn out. also, who can ignore the countless bugs that always comes and goes with every updates.

    but the helpful side of the community are always helpful, and Digital Extreme's community division are really doing their homework establishing connection with fans. other than that, the monetization in this game is gotta be one of the fairest i have seen so far.

    in the end, people who can accept that warfame is an indie beta free to play game, might agree that it's a damn good one.

    The game is fun to track enemies in. It is simple enough to play. What would make it better would be better gunplay, first person perspective,The game is fun to track enemies in. It is simple enough to play. What would make it better would be better gunplay, first person perspective, and more to trigger flow state.

    edit: I came back to the game after a long time. The movement and the control scheme are unintuitive.
