I’ve personally never played Warframe, but I’m well aware that several key members of the TSA community play it daily, which has led us to expanding our clan and looking for new recruits. I’m not going to be one of them, but you could be, just click that link!
It’s also quite an interesting one for WeView. Our ratings are usually based around whether you should buy the game or not, but since Warframe is a free-to-play game, we’re going to have to change that too!
Anyway, Warframe is essentially a PS4 and PC game where you team up with friends and take on enemy forces. Sounds pretty simple, but it’s a game that’s enhanced by the titular Warframes – a form of exo-armour which allows players to become much stronger.
It’s a third person game, and the procedurally generated maps makes for extremely varied gameplay, and lengthy playtimes. That’s perhaps why Tony, Kitch and Vandix seem to be constantly playing the game, but anyway, I digress.
I’m probably not the best informed for Warframe, but Jim did review it for the site, so we’ll jump into some of his words now:
If you’re looking for a decent online shooter to play with friends, you can do a lot worse. Warframe is a treat for the eyes and though it may lack context, it still plays incredibly well. It’s just a shame that Digital Extremes is so obviously putting the squeeze on anyone fed up with hours of credit-farming.
So, it’s a great game, but the free-to-play aspect may be its crux, as you’ve to purchase many Platinum credits to get anywhere. Saying that, if you spend £40, then you’ve paid the same as a full game, haven’t you? Which leads us to our hand-crafted and unique to Warframe rating system!
First of all, if you don’t think it’s even worth the internet bandwidth, then just say Avoid It, but if you think it’s worth playing for a bit, then just let us know at the end of your comment how much you’d be willing to pay for it. How does that sound?
Obviously, don’t say a ridiculous amount, but it should be fun to collect the average pricing next week. Get your comments in before the weekend and it’s likely you’ll be included in next week’s Verdict round-up.
