Warframe Game Review by Mr. Steal Yo Hex

Writing another review because my other one is gone for some reason and my opinion has changed.

Way too much to say to put into a steam review and obviously I'm jaded with the amount of hours I have in this game over the course of going on six years but the gist of it is I played Warframe because of the promise of what it could be and it's an insanely easy game to sink hundreds of mindless hours into grinding my existence away. Over the last few years the devs have failed to deliver any intelligently designed content that doesn't intentionally waste my time or dumb down what complexity there was in the game to begin with.

For example, there used to be a reason to use a different builds on different weapons but for secondary and melee weapons they almost exclusively use the same build because the devs kept nerfing off meta things into the ground so everything is the same bland mediocrity that they apparently see the game as.

ESO is a gamemode where your ability use is restricted by uses in a given time period and it's harsher for your 4 than it is your 1 to give you some arbitrary sense of difficulty. The devs have stated they want to nerf the one frame that's gameplay is based around her 1 because she's too good at that mode. Let me say that again, Saryn is too good at dealing with the arbitrary restrictions of the mode so lets nerf her everywhere.

I could spend days writing more examples of how the recent event wanted you to grind for 4 hours for a maxed common arcane when there is 20 other commons and probably more than 20 of other rarities that cost more time. Or how that recent event didn't work for the first week or so because it was designed so convolutedly that they didn't know what was breaking system to not reward players after a hour long mission with their earned tokens. Or the devs released a near unplayable update due to gamebreaking bugs then went on vacation for 2 weeks, and the aforementioned busted event happens to take place in that spaghetti-code of an update.

All of those event/recent update related examples were fixed eventually, but it just goes to show that the playerbase is supposed to spend the time DE is asking for beta testing consistently buggy and poorly designed systems.

TL/DR because I really need to stop writing before I spend the entire day on this ♥♥♥♥:
The DE that implimented bullet jumping as a replacement for zoren-coptering because they understood players wanted to go fast is not the DE that is working on this game now, and I can't be asked to spend the next 5 years playtesting mediocre to broken updates that want all of my time every day of every week.

DE don't care about they player base they nerf everything to the ground and think that it is the best for the game going forward let me tell you that when i'm playing a warframe or a weapon that is not meta and doesn't do any damage even tho i build it to make enough damage is pretty annoying i don't care about meta i'm trying to use weapon that i like and turn out they all bad soo i'm forced to use ( meta frame/meta weapon) soo i can (ENJOY THE GAME) hell na example back in the day (2019) i was using and still use these frame/weapon (i really like them) Ember Prime, Cernos Prime, Hikou Prime, Gram Prime. Or i was using Sybaris Prime, Euphona Prime, Nikana Prime(this one still good) these weapon are pretty much doing no damage right now on enemies high level without having me slapping a good riven on it and i'm not gonna trade for 8 month to get enough platinum to buy a riven from a player(yes buying plat is an option but 210$ for a riven hell no) just to know that DE not even a month or 2 after they change that weapon riven disposition to make it 1/5 which make the riven bad for Ember part i don't mind the nerf too much the issues is the ult doesn't area around u anymore u need to face the enemies to hit them(not the end of the world still get away with it) all her ability use too much energy even if u make a archon shard build to make it BALANCE soo u can still do damage even with good efficiency(because when u make a efficiency build your power strength stay around 110%) welp u get one shot the moment u loose your shield(yes i use her 2 to get the damage reduction) and remember about meta people will say ah yes just use rolling guard and brief respite for shield gate and invincibility frame welp meta ALMOST EVERYONE USE THIS oh and think about it all the new frame are at least twice as resistant to everything when lvl 30 without mods than old frame like ember with mods to make her more tanky i want to play for fun and now there is no fun allowed soo i'm quitting the game until this game take a good turn because for now it isn't enjoyable

Let me preface this by pointing to my hours logged in warframe. look Warframe has come A LONG LONG WAY from where its started and it has evolved and changed constantly, so if your looking at this review wondering if the "mostly Negitave" steam rating is deserved, ill tell you first and formost that it is not. this game is out standing high quality and well designed in almost (almost) all sectors (and im a game dev so yeah well done DE) now the fun part, there are only 2 reasons you should not play this game at least till the new war quests 1. You should NOT play this game if you like your time, it will consume all of it, things take a very long time to make and its incentive to be speeded up via in game currency called plat. (you can earn plat easily if your into trading stocks or crypto... its called warframe trade chat... check it out for all you free to play ninjas) but you couldnt BUY everything in this game if you wanted too, and that leads to my second point 2. You should run away faster than a gauss running from a volt from this game if you are a completionist you will never... and i mean NEVER get everything in this game im sorry no its not a challenge seriously dont click that download button run hide its the boogy man of completionists worst nightmares just dont otherwise. down load the damn game, its free, not pay to win, shiney, fast, power fantasy, with alien booty, and creepy kids in fake alternate futer outer-space oh and ninja? yeah just play it idk how else to tell you this but if you dont play it the fomo monster will get you and it will be painful

Big grind if you like that. it takes a bit to get into story but once you do its amazing. I didn't expect to like the story so much. Will probably need wiki open constantly

to be honest with u all the game is stunning when it comes to graphics and story line but there is just too much grind to do to top it off every time DE finds out that players use a certain weapon /synergy/ ability way too much they just nerf the hell out it , it's true that they add new alternatives to make us use other weapons and synergies but it's not fun watching DE nerf something that u're used to or u spent a lot of time testing
