GameTrailers: Is this free-to-play co-op shooter worth the time or is it just trying to get in your wallet?

Looking forward to trying this as soon as I get my console (tick tock...) Probably won't sink money into it, judging by the impressions. But all F2P console games deserve a shot, at this point. Particularly excited for PS2.
I think it's less "they deserve a shot" and more "I've got nothing to lose if it turns out awful."
Lol, yeah, that's one way of putting it. Tomato tomato.
@malokevi, Exactly right. I've tried all the F2P titles, and so far I'd have to say DCUO is by far the best, in terms of 2bang for your buck". Next would be Blacklight Retribution, for F2P it's excellent. (If it wasn't for BF4 and COD Ghosts, and I guess KZ Shadowfall, Blacklight would be the premiere shooter). Warframe would be a distant third. It's good, but it doesn't seem to have a real point to it. But for F2P, it's worth the price of entry.
After yesterdays patch i'm enjoying it way more.
One of my favorite time killers to play. I am guilty of throwing a few bucks here and there to get some better stuff.
The game is pretty fun, maybe you suck at playing it?
I love the game, just wish that it was not so hard to get more frames and such. Wanting to check out the trading system in the new patch, see how good it is.
Agree with you 100%, for a F2P game it is pretty fun.
Gotta say that I am absolutely loving this game. The F2P structure is pretty fair simply because there are really only cosmetic things that are hidden behind a pay wall. The rest CAN be gotten, given that you put in the time and effort. At first it can be daunting, because the tutorial doesn't really tell you how to BUILD your frame. It just covers basic mechanics. However, there are plenty of wiki's online and the players, generally, are very helpful. I can see spending a little cash here and there. But, I am sure that I won't spend what the game would be worth. For those that lack patience, STAY AWAY...because it will be frustrating grinding for all that you want. However, if you are one that truly loves the reward of grinding, this game might be up your alley. It's a mix of ME3 mp, Borderlands (loot and grinding), and space ninjas.
I've got several friends who are playing this now and claim it is a lot of fun. I might have to check it out. From what they've said paying to buy stuff isn't required at all, especially since its PvE and not PvP which could create a Pay 2 Win scenario. Generally, from what I've read tho people are enjoying this game, which appears contrary to the low review scores I've seen it getting. Same could be said for some other titles as well. Either way its free to try so no real loss for anyone.
This review is quite interesting. For a game this polished with cross platform play, regular DLC updates and fixes making the game a progressive improvement every month all while being a free-to-play title and it's clear Gametrailers is clearly missing the point of the game all together. While I certainly respect everyone's opinion(review), Warframe is a delight to play with a cooperative team of friends on PS4 and PC. Much better than a 6/10. Did I mention it was free!
Quite a lot of critic bashing this game. I play it and like it very much though the mission could use some more variety.
This game is a blast in my mind. Update 11 just came out and it added a really awesome tile set. Definitely worth trying, just sink an hour or two in and if you don't like it, delete it. I got hooked pretty fast.
Everything about it looks awesome, apart from the timer to be able to equip things. It probably deserves more than a 6.
