    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.

    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.

    Warframe is a good title if contextualized in the panorama of FreeToPlay, however the high level of competition on this front would make us hope for a more solid and strong product.

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

    I have put well over 700 hours into this game. You don't put that much time into a rubbish game! If this game were reviewed today byI have put well over 700 hours into this game. You don't put that much time into a rubbish game! If this game were reviewed today by professional critics, having had 14 major updates since it was first released and reviewed, then it would score far more highly. A wonderful game that offers much and is in no way a pay to win experience. Give it a go. You won't regret it. Though you just might lose a large segment of your life to it! Expand

    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.

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

It pumps out amazing updates regularly and the game is constantly improving. The game has a massive learning curve, the tutorial isn't that polished, and you need to check wikis and guides constantly if you're a new player, for example, you open up the market and you will see a ton of weapons and gear ridiculous amount of money, what you don't see is the small section that sells you blueprints, and you can build weapons easily. The gameplay is extremely well done and the graphics are good for a F2P game. Expand

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 people who made this game have absolutely no idea how to make a balanced combat system. And it's not only that, basically everything aboutThe people who made this game have absolutely no idea how to make a balanced combat system. And it's not only that, basically everything about this game has so many flaws and instead of fixing them they go and create new ones just for profit. This game tries too hard to be something that its not, a fast paced over the top action that's fun in the first few hours but gets so repetitive and boring you'll be asking yourself, "What have i done to deserve this cruel punishment?" And that's not the only thing wrong with the combat, it's so unbelievably broken and unbalanced. That doesn't really help with the pvp which is just a joke.
    The microtransactions are absurd. Do you want to change a colour on your suit? Well to bad you have to pay $5 just for ONE set of colours ;) Oh what's this? You want to play a different teno suit? Well you can grind for over 50-300 hours and then wait another 3 days for the blueprint to finish OR you could just pay $50 to have it right now.
    This entire game is focused around the microtransactions. That's literally it. That's why this game still, after years, has thousands of bugs, AI as choppy as can be and a ridiculous amount of grinding. It is NOT worth your time.
