More information can be found at http://www.digitalextremes.com Notes: After going through Fraggednation.com and some leaps and bounds signing up at mmorpg.com I had a few more clicks to find a Beta Key for the Game WARFRAME. then back to the warframe.com website and signed up there and entered the Beta Key and was able to Download a Downloader for several updates later. When I was finally able to run the game I found a login screen so I tried to paste my information that I had saved in my Password.TXT file then found myself stumped Tabbing back and forth typing in my lenghthy password manually with seemingly no option to save it in game. Gameplay: 1 You start off with a simple Tutorial to Familarize yourself with the controls and interface and it doesn't seem to long before you actulally jump into the Online Gameplay. As the BETA was in "Server Stress Test" the Bad guys seemed to be standing while they are dead or everyone was lagging while playing. When you die you may be resurrected by a team mate or may have some timer to resurrect yourself. A Bonus goes to the map waypoints that show you where you need to go. Unfortunately I could not get past the lag or badly animated deaths of the bad guys as I may have seem to be wasting my bullets or using my knife needlessly. Better Artificial Intelligence is needed to control the bad guys since a few of them tend to be stuck behind an obsticle. The game does require everyone to work together to play especially at certain doorways when two people are needed to open them or all team mates at the very end to finish the map. Story: 1 Found at https://warframe.com/game/story They were called Tenno. Warriors of blade and gun: masters of the Warframe armor. Those that survived the old war were left drifting among the ruins. Now they are needed once more. The Grineer, with their vast armies, are spreading throughout the solar system. A call echoes across the stars summoning the Tenno to an ancient place. They summon you. Allow the Lotus to guide you. She has rescued you from your cryostasis chamber and given you a chance to survive. The Grineer will find you; you must be prepared. The Lotus will teach you the ways of the Warframes and the secrets to unlocking their powers. Come Tenno, you must join the war. Graphics: 2 It looks like this pushed UNREAL and really beefed up the characters as they do not look as bad as UNREAL 3 with bulky arms and legs that look like toys. Graphics don't look too bad as the video requirements are light to moderate and even for using DirectX 9c. Audience: 1 There doesn't seem to be any indication of anything game wise as I have only played this game for a short period and as it is still in Beta. You may check out the Forums at warframe.com to see if anyone else had left their input on the game. Networkability: 1 Online Dedicated Servers Only. Final Score: 6/10 Final Notes: There could be more added as to features that would make it more usable like the Login password information could be remembered or able to be pasted from using using the command "CTRL+V". The badly animated deaths of the bad guys as they were still standing wasted time and ammo, I'm not too sure if this was due to the Beta Server "Stress Test" lag?. The AI for the bad guys could be much better. There is no LAN ability or Hoast ability where some or most of the Gaming Community may require.
