You have a choice between 3 Warframes (ninja suit like robot killing machines AKA; YOU). Each warframe is unique in look and abilities. Excalibur, has a slash dash ability and stun ability. The others use stealth and or mob manipulation. This is something I enjoy about the game as well. You are not into a role or other limitations most shooter have. You can still build weapon from sniper to assault rifles.
Once you have a character chosen you can modify it's colors on several layers of the warframe suit. F2P are locked in basic color scheme. But there is enough there to get creative. My sword used a nice red and white.
To start, you will be happy with what you have. But you will run across some great looking warframes and that alone makes me want to put some money into customize! The Size of costomize is very good for a FPS game. Most games give you uniforms or character choices. Warframe has logical purchases and very nice looks.
You can also change colors anytime in the game.
The animations create that dark space feel. It is not just corridors and tubes. There are open areas, small areas and Hangers. In Warframe, it is unique as well. The creators really developped a mark of it's own. The graphical setting are really unique and make you feel immersed in their world. You are sneaking in every mission, it also adds that "you are alien, and you are here in a wrong place. They could use just a LITTLE MORE interaction. More "living" elements to the game. Some spot feel abandoned or to cold. But all in all, it makes a great battlefield and perfect game setting.
You start in a planetary system and move along. As a space ninja, you sneak in at the start of each round and are given orders for your mission via com link. Each time you complete a mission the next path opens up. The missions include assassinating a target. Sabatoging the systems. Rescuing a prisoner. etc.
One of my favorite things about Warframe is the map change. You can restart the map and it is a new map with new layout. Same mission! This randomization of maps is very nice. The UI is great. I could be assault that shoots and scoots. I could be mele and slash my way through. The UI is logical and makes use of your warframe. It is a compliment you and battle systems. And the other players Warframe builds compliment each other. That is the one word to summarize this game play: "Complimentary". A great shooter. The map progression is nice with a few places to stop and farm. A few bosses to stop and kill. A few events. You will be traveling the universe and looking for places.
The leveling system unlocks new potentials and weapons for you. The game is based around Crafting. You can purchase to advance in the game, but over all it is F2P and requires you play and collect parts to CRAFT the items. Once the game takes you. You will be out to collect as many pieces to build as many warframes. There are several other warframes than the starter frames. To play them. You have to collect the blueprints, and then get the materials to craft each piece. This is true for weapons as well. Grouping is fun. Not just another body to zerg content. Some players can be jerks and just run and rush to the end and not care about the team. All in all. This is a great shooter that supports any kind of FPS role. Assault. Pistoler, bow and arrow. Sniper. Sword. Etc.
I have not reached the end game, but my only worry is the rate of enhancements vs Content. If it requires all my cards are maxed and I cannot max them until I farm parts in the lower areas. But it seems everything is fine for the moment. The game seems to progress of the F2P and keeps you end gamers busy in crafting every frame and weapon available and testing it and tryoing out combos
Wonderfull! The sound of the material of your suit sliding across the floor. The little "clink" of metal as you roll and your sword smacks the ground. The sounds of bullet casings dropping after firing. The sound of ambient voices and machinery.
Economy and Crafting:
Standard upgrades come in drops and rewards. They are like cards. You put this card into a slot on your gun. It has 4 rank slots. To increase the ranks you modify the card by FUSING it with other cards. You can purchase base weapons with in game currency as well but they are the base, the better weapons have to be built or purchased with cash.
The enhancing of abilities starts to get difficult after 4 to 5 upgrades.
I did not notice an auction house... But there is a trade channel...
The currency seems balanced at the moment and the deals fare. You buy out right the parts in real cash, or build it yourself. Combos you add to your weapons. Cold + Poison gas = Poison shock. There are so many kinds of damage and effects to test and build, and try out on weapons. Some deal bonus damage to mutants. Others on robots.
You can build in laser armor bonus to get resistant against laser fire. This helps with more laser dealing enemys.Or extra ammo builds for survival missions.
I like this game. Rewarding, interesting, beautiful and a great space theme.
It is not perfect. Has some unfair drops rates. Social aspect could be better. I would like to see more living elements in the maps. They already are doing a sort of base building and PvP structure...
