I've been a veteran for quite a long time, both when it comes to Warframe as well as games produced by Digital Extremes.
I'd like to first off say that this game has plenty of potential, plenty to do, and plenty to own, from guns, to companions, and so on.
I'd also like to say that the game is extremely labourious to get credits, experience, and mods to work up the ability to get the "spacebux" you need to get slots and the like. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING (except Prime Access) can be gathered by extensive amounts of farming.
But about the farming, that's all this game is. Farming for crafting materials. Farming for mods. Farming for parts for a particular frame or a certain weapon. Farming...farming..farming...farming...
If you have a lot of time on your hands, this game is enjoyable up until you reach the point of boredom, which is around Mastery Rank 8 and above. Though it's fun to excel, it's doubtable that you'll have any reason to come back once your collection is complete until the next event or major update comes around.
This is not a statement that this game is bad, by no means. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
The pros of this game span further than the cons.
+Despite the farming, it is relatively easy to get what you need outside of a few choice materials. With a good hour of gathering, you'll have a decent amount of resources at your disposal (god forbid nanospores).
If time is on your side, expect the ability to level up quickly and grab parts for good weapons in no time!
+There are weekly updates and constant hotfixes, Unless you have a terrible computer and/or a major (non-weekly) update drops, these download in no time via the launcher.
+Content is constantly added with weekly updates (most of the time they keep to the statement for said weekly updates).
+The developers actually partake in their own game to help find bug fixes, get ideas for content, even showcase biweekly to give the community a head's-up on what will come, what's in mind, and so on.
+Support is quite easy to get ahold of, even if it does take a day or so. (Much like the Blues of Blizzard's support team).
But now for the cons...
-Sometimes they tend to alter their scripts so much that it either breaks the game for the OS you run, or for certain specs in your system.
-Once again, labourious if you cannot spend time in game to gather resources and the like.
-Certain mods are like the Colossal Squid...elusive, and thought to be a myth.
-Some members of the community can be extreme ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.
-Cross-platform (PC to console and vice versa) not available. (Side note: You can transfer your PC account to console once in a blue moon, but not the other way around for contractual reasons.)
-Primarily considered pay-to-win because of the slow nature of gathering resources and money, even for a minimalistic trade for small amounts of "platinum" to get slots to hold weapons and warframes.
I could ramble on and on, but to me, I find that the pros outweigh the cons.
I recommend this game, whole-heartedly, if you enjoy sci-fi third-person action based games with guns.
