The game is a co-op third person shooter, but please do not let that turn you away. There is a very good reason for this. You would probably puke your guts out otherwise. The game at times is very fast paced and involves flying through the air, climbing up walls, running on walls, jumping (sometimes to great heights), sliding, spinning around and doing flips. Had you done this in first person, not only would this not look as cool, but you would probably not get too far before losing your lunch. The best way I can describe it is you are a highly mobile space ninja/spellcaster/mercenary that can master a plethora of weapons and abilities to complete any mission given to you. Whether you are eliminating enemies from an area, hacking computers, defending a point, carrying out an assassination, capturing a VIP, or some other mission.
Although the game is a shooter, the game lets you be adventurous. The maps for each mission are large and have several randomly chosen tile sets. As I said before you can climb up walls and often times find alternate routes that may allow you to find hidden goodies or a stealthier route around a group of enemies. You can sneak around and be stealthy, or rush in guns blazing. You also can choose to play solo, with friends, or with randoms.
Warframe also allows for an unbelievable amount of customization to your spaceship, warframes, weapons, and companions. There are many cosmetic items you can use to add to your warframe or switch out parts such as the helmets to get the look you want. You can also change the coloring of your gear. You start with a small variety of colors, but you can buy more color pallets if you wish. Then there are mods. Mods give your equipment different perks. For example, some mods may decrease reload time, others may increase damage or your shields. There are separate mods for your warframe, weapons, and companions. The mod system gives you more control over how you play and fine tune your gear to make it more powerful. There are literally hundreds of mods in this game to choose from.
There are also plenty of primary, secondary, and melee weapons to choose from. Each weapon has its own damage spread for different types of physical and elemental damage they do. Some types of damages are better against different types of enemies.
1.Sounds – Although its space and sound should not be as well pronounced as it is in the game, the sounds in my opinion are great.
2.Customization – As I said, there is plenty of it.
3.New Content – New content for this game comes out every month so there is always something worth looking at.
4.Events – There are many events that pop up in the game as well as in the forums. You can enter a contest to win platinum (cash shop currency) or do the in game alerts for rare items and special challenges such as Tactical Alerts.
5.Not Pay To Win – This game is absolutely NOT pay to win. It is pay to get cosmetics or to skip grinding or waiting for some things. Many players trade in game items for plat so you can get cash shop items without spending a dime if you’re a wheeler and dealer. You can also gift items too!
6.Clan Doujo - Clan doujos (your clan’s private base) give you access to items you cannot get in the normal market and give you a place to trade items and parkour courses you can run through. Also, the doujos just look flipin sweet! You can also get an observatory which looks beautiful as well.
7.Exp Rate – I honestly thing the exp gain rate is not bad. Yes, if you are formaing a weapon for end game it takes a while depending on what you do, but it is not really all that bad. You do not need to dedicate months to this game to get somewhere.
8.Solo/Multiplayer – You can play by yourself, with friends, or with random players if you want. You can control this in your options.
9.Content - There is a lot of different types of missions and modes you can play.
10.Playerbase – There is always a lot of players online. Even in off hours.
11.PVP Mode – There is a PVP mode that they recently revamped
12.Story and Lore – There is a lot of lore involving this game that helps explain why the solar system is the way that it is. There are also side story quests you can do after completing the main story quest line.
13.Syndicates – Syndicates are factions in the game. There are perks for joining them such as access to items you cannot get anywhere else. It also adds another mechanic in that enemy factions will send squads to attack you randomly, which adds to the tension and the danger of the world.
14.Archwings – It can be fun flying around in space. Do a barrel roll!
1.Glitches – Easily the number one issue with this game. This game has more glitches than any game I have ever played in my life, and that is saying a lot.
2.Constant Patching – An hour or two (if even) after new content is released a hotpatch is released to fix what they broke. Then there are consecutive hotpatches to fix what was fixed. Each hotfix requires you exit the game and relaunch. This kind of sucks if you’re about to do something and getting your party organized.
3.Trading – You cannot trade until you reach mastery rank 4 and then you are limited in how many times you can trade daily. You also need a doujo to trade.
4.Obtaining Cosmetics and Colors – Most color pallets are obtained by spending platinum. The same goes for most of the cosmetics.
5.Kubrows – If it dies it likes you less and then you have to pet it to make it not hate you. As it hates you more it does less damage. Oh, you can only pet it three times a day to make it happy. It also degrades over time. This means you need to buy these expensive DNA stabilizers to keep it alive. Every day your Kubrow will lose 10% of its condition gauge which also decreases its total health, which causes it to die more, which causes it to hate you and do less damage. Yes, it comes full circle, ladies and gentlemen.
6.Lack of Archwing Content – There just is not a lot.
7.Lack of Warframe and Weapon Slots – If you want more than two warframes you need to play platinum for additional slots. The same goes for weapon slots. Fortunately, they start you off with some platinum, which you can use to buy slots if you want.
If I were to rate it now, I would give it an 8/10. I would probably want to give it a 9/10, but with all the glitches and patching I can’t honestly give it a higher rating. I understand DE is not necessarily a huge group and they are good about patching things up, but gameplay is still gameplay, and that is what I am rating. It is also hard to rate Warframe due to the fact the game is not complete. New content is added monthly and it is still in beta. For now I feel 8/10 is quite fair. I also would like to note, I am not big into buying game currency in games. I am on a budget and I do not normally feel games deserve my hard earned cash. However, I did not mind giving them some of my money because I love the game, I want it to keep going, and I feel like that later on down the road there will be something to show for it.
Which leave one last question. Would I recommend this game? Yes, I would. This game has elements that would attract FPS and TPS players as well as people who like MMOs/RPG players and possibly anyone else. Even if you do not normally like shooters you may love this game. For example, I have a buddy that hates shooters, but loves the Elder Scrolls games and Guild Wars 2. I got him playing this and now he is on it every day. Even if you do not like guns, you can still hack and slash your foes apart. You also do not have to be hardcore about the game to get anywhere. If you have questions feel free to ask me in here or add me on Steam or in game (AgentIce). It was longer but character limitations. Thank you for reading!
