Warframe is a cooperative free-to-play third person online action game set in an evolving sci-fi world. They were called Tenno. Warriors of blade and gun: masters of the Warframe armor. Those that survived the old war were left drifting among the ruins. Now they are needed once more. The Grineer, with their vast armies, are spreading throughout the solar system. A call echoes across the stars summoning the Tenno to an ancient place. They summon you. Allow the Lotus to guide you. She has rescued you from your cryostasis chamber and given you a chance to survive. The Grineer will find you; you must be prepared. The Lotus will teach you the ways of the Warframes and the secrets to unlocking their powers. Come Tenno, you must join the war.

If all you want is a way to run around and shoot things without troubling your wallet or imagination, that may be enough to justify the time it takes Warframe to download. It's hard, though, to shake the feeling that the only reason this game is free to play is that nobody would pay money for something so scrappy and generic.

Warframe's daunting complexity doesn't detract from its delicious combat and flexible progression.

8.6 / 10.0

Warframe isn't an easily approachable game, but it's one that's worth getting comfortable with.

Warframe brings solid gunplay and a rich infrastructure to the PlayStation 4 in a rare free-to-play model. It's a missed opportunity on some levels, but if you're itching to get more use out of your new console, give it a whirl.

9 / 10.0
It is really difficult to get into Warframe all on your own, without watching or reading some gameplay and forum contents. But what makes Warframe such an incredible experience is the incredibly kind and helpful community, you will always have someone to guide you, help you understand the game mechanics and content, and take you in their squad to do a bunch of different missions,
4 / 10.0
The game has been out for 8 years and still in Beta state. Btw the Beta label also pretty much describes DE's (devs) effort towards the game. DE doesnt care or listen to the community. Every "new" content is pretty much copy/paste of something old. Graphics - very outdated. Warframe is still fun to play IF you are a new player - it got a TON of content for you to go through.
