    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.

    If you liked Unreal Tournament fast pace play and unique weapons, you will love Warframe. Same developer.

    Try it. It’s free and it’s amazing.

    Love this game but as a solo player the going is really tough in places. What I cannot understand is how I seem to be killed and returned toLove this game but as a solo player the going is really tough in places. What I cannot understand is how I seem to be killed and returned to the office so quickly. What has happened to respawn in this game? When I do go as a team member I dont do anything but run round and collect goodies that they have left for me,then its game done collect the prize and back to the office. I admit I am not too hot on the instructions. I think this game is as good if not better than Destiny. The makers of Warframe have a created a fantastic game but there are so many flaws. There is a method in the way one has to buy Platinum to get the best weapons and such,yes the game was free..was it?I am playing on xbox 1 Expand

    Warframe on the Xbox is about as good as it gets for Free-to-Play games. Most importantly, the addition of native controller support, obviousWarframe on the Xbox is about as good as it gets for Free-to-Play games. Most importantly, the addition of native controller support, obvious since this is a console port, greatly improves the ease of maneuverability for players without the manual dexterity to simultaneously hit all of the keys required for advanced maneuvers in the PC version, which makes the game much more approachable. This game can be intimidating to new and/or solo players, as cooperation makes the missions much easier and aside from the basic control functions, much of the more advanced maneuvering abilities are left to the player to figure out. The repetition of environmental tilesets, though semi-randomized, makes missions seem repetitive at times, which is really apparent when grinding the same levels for materials or equipment blueprints. You can circumvent grinding by buying items with Platinum, Warframe's premium currency, though this can be quite expensive. For example, a single weapon can be priced at 200 Platinum, while the $10 Platinum package only provides you 175 Platinum. With that in mind, every item that affects gameplay (Warframes, weapons, etc.) can be obtained without platinum unlike a majority of other games using the Free-to-Play model. Overall, the originality, flow of action, and customization options that can literally make this game range between a stealthy assassination game and an action packed run-and-gunner, all lend towards drawing players in. I'd highly recommend this game to anyone who has the time and patience to grind for gear, or does not feel bad about spending money on premium currency. Expand

    This game is quite enjoyable free game if you like a game that you have to put time and effort into it.

    I have seen comments saying you
    This game is quite enjoyable free game if you like a game that you have to put time and effort into it.

    I have seen comments saying you have to pay real money just to get the good items. Yeah if you want them quickly you do but if you don't mind the grind you can get access to any item in the game with time and effort. So far on the Xbox one This has been one of the only 3 games that i have kept coming back to play so far.
    At first it took me a little while to get into the game but after a few hours i started to enjoy the game.

    My Pros and Cons

    Pro's
    The game is Free
    I can play the game for hours without being bored.
    You Don't need to buy the good weapons and can obtain every item in the game.
    Loads of weapons and warframes to obtain throughout the game
    You can trade for items you need to build weapons, mods or warframes
    Missions change starting positions and finishing points so it is not the same level over and over again if you replay it (Unless its a Interception or Defence mission).

    Con's
    Building Items can take a while e.g. New warframes take 3 days once you have built each item which take 12 hours each.
    Too many Alert missions that give away rare items and can leave you feeling angry when you have grinded to get said item and then becomes pretty much worthless on the trading market.
    You cant trade materials
    It can become repetitive from time to time

On the upside; it is free. I really don't care for the game. It isn't a fun game from my perspective. Honestly the gameplay is rather terrible. The game creates no purpose or intrigue, there is no reason to continue playing.

    If you're a hardcore space geek that will play any piece of crap that is SciFi then this game is for you.

    Well, I was banned for no reason at all just because a chat moderator apparently hated me for reasons I was never aware of. After 3000 hoursWell, I was banned for no reason at all just because a chat moderator apparently hated me for reasons I was never aware of. 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.
