    Great game, extremely poor security

    I absolutely hate my game account being hacked/stolen. Good thing Trion caught this happening last night. Numerous times. Or, maybe they didn't. Let me explain: I have a dynamic IP that obviously changes quite often.... Read Full Review

    Best MMO experience since WoW and better in many respects.

    So I tried the free lv20 account, and I thought hey this is great. I signed up for a month, and didn't regret the money spent. I'm not big on MMO's but this one was the best I tried since WoW. Now Warhammer Online had a ... Read Full Review

    This game is amazing it just gets funnier the more you play it. theres so many different ways to play.

    The game started out ok just another one of those online multiplayer games you do when you get borad. But the more you play it the better it gets. The guild system is what made the game for me you can help out more than ... Read Full Review

    Rift = WOW + Warhammer

    If you've played a rogue in WOW guess what... the rogue in Rift is pretty much the same, even the abilities. Same with every other class. The quest system is the same as WOW. The classes are a mixture of WOW & Warhamm... Read Full Review

    The perfection of imperfection

    RIFT seems an old-school MMORPG with the new feature around! Is not perfect, however Trion is always working on it! I've been playing this game for 2 or 3 months. I've seen many way to have fun in this game... you can... Read Full Review

    Good for pve players. Bad for pvp players.

    Where do I begin? I played RIFT for around a year starting at launch. The graphics are actually quite good for an MMO. I know a lot of people disagree with that though. There are several graphical bugs that were pr... Read Full Review

    Very polished Traditional mmo. Expansion and f2p make this a must play.

    Bottom Line: Very abundant endgame includes a vast # of raids, dungeon modes, world bosses and world events. Character playstyles and talent trees are extremely rich. Solid graphics and very polished and complete game. ... Read Full Review

    the Rifts themselves are the only real difference between this world and any other fantasy hack and slash.

    While the world is well made, and good looking, they didn't go far enough to make it seem different from WOW and all the other fantasy hack and slash games out there. The sudden appearance of a Rift over head is the only... Read Full Review
