Warframe isn't an easily approachable game, but it's one that's worth getting comfortable with.
Warframe's daunting complexity doesn't detract from its delicious combat and flexible progression.
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.
A good start to free-to-play games on the PlayStation 4, with a fun co-op shooter that doesn't feel like it's solely out to gouge its player's wallets.
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.
The concept is unique, and a full party makes this truly enjoyable
Digital Extremes' Warframe is a satisfying and comprehensive free-to-play RPG that still manages to keep things exciting six years on.
You could play literally any other competent third person shooter from this or the last generation, and have a comparable — and very likely better — experience.
Warframe, which has been out for PC since March, is free-to-play on the PS4, and in spite of its bugs, is worth the no-cost price. Playstation Plus members get a free starter pack, but beware that it will get you used to how seductive the ease of purchases with platinum can be.
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. If you're looking for a new shooter, give it a shot on another platform if you can while the Xbox One bugs are being ironed out.
