Is Warframe a solid experience?

#1pothocketPosted 12/19/2013 7:54:11 AM
Never had much interest in it until a friend explained that if I liked ME3 coop (which I did) I should really think about getting into Warframe.

How's it play? Controller support work well? Is it an easy game to play with randoms if my friends don't want to play? Or at least do solo missions?

I can't comment on controller support (though I feel it would play fine with a controller so long as it has support which I think it does) but as far as solo play goes at least the first few missions are soloable. It looks really cool and it has a lot of things I wish ME3's MP had had but ME3 also had a lot of things I wish Warframe had. If you like ME3 I say it's definitely worth a shot, it didn't quite cut it for me but there's been a few patches since I tried it out, I think it was still beta when I tried actually.

The thing about playing with randoms in Warframe is that the game has a hugely dedicated playerbase who already know the game like the backs of their hands and there is almost zero communication if you're not part of a clan.

Basically you can play with randoms, but since a lot of them are higher level players who already know what they want to get out of a level, they'll be off like a shot finding the best way through the level. In some ways this can be really instructive, because it shows you how high level players move throughout levels, but if you're the type to get easily discouraged or confused, then you'll be left alone in an empty level.

Also, have fun with sections that require wall running to proceed if you're playing with randoms.

Oh, and yeah, you can solo the first few levels, but soloing can get you killed randomly very easily if you aren't paying attention, I recommend not trying to do it on any escort missions, defense missions, or boss missions until you're more experienced.

It's ok, but most matches will be very laggy, and the progression is very slow.

One thing I'll caution you on is that the game isn't very friendly to people new to it, in terms of you not being told about several mechanics, like why some weapons are better against some enemies more than others (Damage 2.0), or why you really should go out of your way to pick up modules and stuff. I've been playing for a couple of weeks now, and I still have to bring up the Wiki page about Damage 2.0 because I still don't know it by heart. And like Monkeymage said, you can solo the game but it requires a change of tactics compared to playing on online mode since you can very easily get wiped out. Playing with randoms isn't bad, just you might run into lag since players host games as opposed to having dedicated servers, so this can be hit-or-miss for you.

It's free and it 's a pure grind game. I don't mind grinding in games at all, but that game has nothing at all to do besides grind for decades to get a decent item and anything top tier will take a few generations to get

True, but it's not mindless or anything. The core gameplay is pretty satisfying.

The game is boring. If you like playing the same maps and doing the same exact quests thousands of times over to level then this game is for you.

This. The combat gets pretty boring quick too.

My problem with is how everything takes ages to kill, and shooting/hitting things lacks any sort of impact.

I had a similar problem with ME3 though, how enemies could absorb 100+ bullets and just keep walking towards you.

The game is just a big grind. If that's the kind of thing you like then you'll like Warframe.
