    One of the best SyFy F2P shooters on the market comes to Nintendo Switch thanks to the work of Panic Button. In addition to an immense content, we have a fast-paced story, excellent gameplay and a memorable soundtrack.

    Warframe is a fantastic sci-fi shooter with a very consumer-friendly business model and a ton of free content.

    The Switch version looks and plays incredibly well, and allows us to play one of the best free-to-play games ever made wherever we want… as long as there’s an internet connection. Give it a try on the platform of your choice –you won’t regret it.

    It also just feels amazing to play, with a satisfying kill-collect-craft loop that’s supported by a mountain of player choice and some wonderfully responsive movement mechanics. Some of its systems are needlessly complex and improperly explained, making it easy to get overwhelmed or burnt out, but there’s just so much to do here that Warframe always excitingly pulls me back with its next update.

    Warframe is definitely one of the best free to play games available right now, and a fantastic shooter in its own right. It's fun and frantic, with loads of content to sink your teeth into for hours. Whether by yourself, with friends or with random people found through matchmaking, this is a great game, well worth your time.

    While Digital Extremes hasn’t quite perfected the formula it needs to make Warframe completely accessible - the sheer number of interconnected systems and customisable elements suggests it never quite will - it still offers a co-operative third-person shooter with all the MMORPG elements you never thought you’d see running on Nintendo Switch. From the impressive visual fidelity Panic Button has maintained, to the sheer breadth of content you can access for free, Warframe represents another milestone for the console.

    A treat to the eyes, Warframe is a beautiful looking free-to-play game that presents a fast-paced and very fluid third-person shooter gameplay. Despite being a bit grindy, it has a huge amount of content to be enjoyed with friends.

    This game provides some really great experiences, some types of challenges are good alone and others you really need other people to do well.

The game feels so fluid and working and has excellent motion blur making the game seem like 60fps when playing in 30fps. Great port onto a less-powerful console. Expand

    As I played Warframe, I couldn't stop thinking of Dauntless–another FTP game mostly based on cooperative battles and collecting loot. At firstAs I played Warframe, I couldn't stop thinking of Dauntless–another FTP game mostly based on cooperative battles and collecting loot. At first sight, the two games couldn't be more different: where Dauntless is ugly and filled with stale fantasy cliches, Warframe has some of the best graphics available on the Switch, and its sci-fi world is original and rich in interesting lore. On the other hand, a few hours into Warframe, I realized how similar the two games are. Both provide a deluge of mechanics and subsystems, but they're ultimately centered on a shallow game loop and insubstantial combat mechanics. As a result, both games soon devolve into a repetitive grind.

    Pros:
    - The smooth graphics will make you forget that you're playing a portable system.
    - The game world is way more original than the typical sci-fi game.
    - Not as greedy as some other FTPs: the market is expensive, but you can play without it.

    Cons:
    - The combat is exciting at first, but grows stale very soon.
    - The melee action is shaky and shallow, but (at least in the beginning) way more efficient than the more interesting firearms combat.
    - It has a huge amount of content, but it takes only a few hours for the procedurally generated missions to look all the same.
