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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
With an asking price of nothing, it's not unreasonable that Warframe charges for things, but when the game's main hook is getting more loot, it slowly becomes frustrating running into so many roadblocks. Even with your warframe's athletic prowess, the nondescript missions don't offer enough to put up with the waiting, and there certainly isn't a strong reason to part with a credit card.
Warframe is a fantastic sci-fi shooter with a very consumer-friendly business model and a ton of free content.
I am sure that one day a F2P game will make me slap down some real world spacebucks. But not this time.
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. And it's now available on the go, too.
If you're looking for something to pass the time you could definitely pick this game up for free as you just might get a good chunk of time enjoying it, but I would definitely spend your money on a full-fledged title rather than having to pay in a free to play game for all the good bits.
When you're dashing and slashing with capable allies, Warframe is decent game – but there's still a lot of work that needs to be done before it can be considered a good one. The user interface isn't controller friendly, you're given little to no direction, and the title's free-to-play model hinders its overall design. Until these issues are rectified, we recommend waiting in the shadows for the release to finally emerge from its beta state.
Warframe brings a new and addicting experience to the PlayStation franchise. Along with great and fluid combat, this is a free-to-play title that will justify microtransactions in a positive way.
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.
I love that Warframe continues to grow and evolve into something ever greater than it was with its humble beginning.
