    Our time with the game has in no way been brief, yet so much remains to be explored. Community events, an evolving storyline, clans, and the sheer number of missions and locations will keep us returning to this space opera on a regular basis for months, maybe even years to come.

    An original "parkour shooter" with upgradable sci-fi ninjas offered in a free-to-play format by a well-known developer is well worth your attention. Repetitive procedurally-generated levels and non-cohesive story make it a bit less appealing, though.
  3. A bit broken, quite derivative and short on narrative appeal - but rich with customisation possibilities and enjoyable at the level of the firefight.

    The lack of a story as well lack of quality music and sound are glaring issues and although the gameplay is decent it is far from perfect.

    Warframe has a great foundation, but there's almost nothing unique or exciting about it. With a free-to-play scheme on top of how grindy the game feels in general (especially without a static group), it can wear on you even after a few hours of play.

    The game is not "pay to win" since you can literally earn everything in the entire game without paying. You don't have to shed real money for premium currency. You don't get a mission failed right after dying , you get a mission failed when you die after losing all your lives OR when you fail the OBJECTIVE. And the game DOES let you pause, when you play in "Solo" mode.

I was delighted to see it pop up on my Xbox as a free-to-playTo start, I have been following and playing Warframe since its early days on PC. I was delighted to see it pop up on my Xbox as a free-to-play game and jumped straight in. I have played several hours of this game (around 30-40+) between PC and Xbox so this review will be thorough. As always, I will do a Pro/Con list below:

    Pros:
    1) Combat. Fighting in this game feels, exciting. Unlike other 3rd person shooters where you run from cover to cover, Warframe throws you face first into the fray with ninja flips and swords.
    2) Ship. The new system of having crafting stations and other assorted things on your own personal ship is something you wont get from most F2P games out there. Hell, SWTOR just recently got player homes/ships and that was a massive budget AAA game!
    3) Clans and Dojos. Having different tiers of clan gives the game balance, and having the ability to ally yourself with other clans to challenge large clans makes it a balanced game. In addition to the ship each player has, you may also invest in a clan dojo. This can be as large or small, empty or full, as you can make it. There are dozens of options to choose from and the art in every room is actually quite good. Wanting to make my clans dojo larger and more grandiose is what will keep me coming back to Warframe for a long time. This Pro alone brought my score from a 6 to a 7.
    4) In-game chat. It works! Players can drop in and help you (if your settings allow) and talking occurs smoothly through the game and with no hassle of party chat from Xbox. This is a great feature, since even the $500-million Destiny can't manage it currently.
    5) Universe and Enemies. While the story is a little loose and rough around the edges, the general universe is a fantastic one. With multiple enemy races and factions it does a good job at making the universe come alive. The enemies are also interesting and come in several different forms, from basic melee grunts to officers with armor and large weapons. They provide a modest challenge and can keep even an experienced veteran like myself entertained for hours.

    Cons:
    1) The AI. The AI isn't all that intelligent when it comes to battle strategy, but then again, it has come a LONG way from the earliest days of Warframe. Enemies will wonder about confused sometimes and sometimes get stuck on walls and steps, but that is just a reality of the gaming world today. Otherwise, they aren't as bad as some games on the current market.
    2) Level design. This one has been a pet peeve of mine for awhile now, but I'll mention it here anyways. Levels seem regurgitated and copied so often that you have to disengage yourself from them to enjoy game play. Alright, so they aren't THAT bad, but you will notice how many levels look alike and find yourself thinking "Haven't I been here before?"
    3) Plot and Campaign. This is the major weak spot for Warframe in my humble opinion. While the universe is rich and ready to be put to the test, the storytelling always seems to fall flat on its face. The introduction levels give you a decent story line, but after that it all sort of evaporates. Without a good campaign or maybe even a single player only mission campaign Warframe will never rise to the next level. While it is a great 3rd person shooter and lots of fun with unique features, it lacks where it counts here. This single Con is what keeps this score down.

    Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed it. I would for sure recommend Warframe if you have an Xbox One or PC. Not only is it FREE, but it will give you several hours of entertainment, and it is an ever-expanding game. Enjoy!

    Good:
    -Very cool to be able to walk around your spaceship when in orbit.
    -Kinda fun to hack through space-bad-guys with katanas, staffs and space-guns.

    Bad:
    -Space guns and katanas get boring pretty quick.
    -So unbelievably lame, I couldn't even tell if this game was supposed to be funny or serious

After 3000 hours in game and free publicity, they're so petty they can't even tell me what I did wrong,

    I even had the proof and reported everything to support but they never seem to help at all.
