Warframe has now successfully launched on two PlayStation consoles in a row, and both times as a launch title. Once again, this is the place to play if you don't have a PC that can play the game at high settings. The PS5 is also the only place to play where haptic feedback plays into how the game feels. This helps to cement the DualSense controller as less of a gimmick and more of an accessory that enhances gameplay. Even without those enhancements, though, Warframe on the PS5 is a showcase-worthy action game that every console owner has truly free access to. Ninjas play free, after all!

The gameplay loop of Warframe remains the same, but the smooth frame rate and great loading times will be a great benefit to long term console players as they move to the PlayStation 5. If you're a Warframe fan, you can look forward to a much sharper experience.

It's difficult not to recommend Warframe on PS5 to anyone who likes sci-fi settings, frenetic action, and deep, engrossing RPG mechanics.

Warframe is made better by its release on PS5. The gorgeous glittery visuals jump off the screen and improved loading times get you into the action faster than ever. With a wealth of content to discover, unlock and find, Warframe on PS5 is a title everyone should check out and what was once one of the best looter-shooters on PS4 is now one of the best on PS5.

Digital Extremes' Warframe is a satisfying and comprehensive free-to-play RPG that still manages to keep things exciting six years on.

As for Warframe, it’s a pretty simple choice if you’re a fan of the modern western RPGs in the same category as Mass Effect or Skyrim. The same goes for gamers that enjoy squad based, online combat. I’ll reiterate that Warframe is a FREE download – if you have fear that the game is weighted with micro transactions, let it go. Are they there? Yes, but they never feel necessary in the least bit. Warframe offers an experience on the Switch that you can’t experience with any other game on the console. I would recommend making sure you have an SD card before downloading it because it certainly does absorb a ton of space. I can’t think of any other reason to avoid giving Warframe on the Nintendo Switch a download.

Fortnite won't be the only free-to-play game hogging your time on the Nintendo Switch. Panic Button's port of Warframe sings, despite the obvious technical limitations that Nintendo consoles typically suffer from. If you're hungry for a space-marine stealth shooter that you can play with pals, Warframe is your best (and perhaps only) bet on the Nintendo eShop.

Warframe is a fantastic sci-fi shooter with a very consumer-friendly business model and a ton of free content.

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.

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.

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

I love that Warframe continues to grow and evolve into something ever greater than it was with its humble beginning.

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

Warframe is an excellent free-to-play title. It relays not on levels, but on your equipment and an ability to use it. This makes it difficult to start, but rewards every hour played. It offers long hours of gameplay, constant content updates and multitude of activities. It's almost impossible to get bored for first 100 hours. But it required dedication for sure.

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.

Although comparisons can be made to other co-operative shooters, Warframe has more than enough novelties to set it apart from other games in the genre. Thus it seems Digital Extremes have at last been successful in the pursuit of a concept nearly fifteen years in the making. 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.

I absolutely adore Warframe despite its rough edges and questionable economy. Since 'grind' is just another word for 'annihilating hordes of foes as an awesome space ninja,' featuring plentiful surprises, addictive progression, strong co-op, overlapping gameplay systems and gorgeous art design, I can forgive any number of niggling flaws.

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.
