    Quality RPG

    Rift is a great game. It starts out a little slow but you eventually progress into a stage at which you can do so many things in the game. There is very detailed character customization (race, class, sub-class, and you c... Read Full Review

    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 mmorpg currently out there, hands down. PvP is best since DAoC.

    There's only one way to put this: If you play mmo's and can't find a game that will feed the addiction you possess, try Rift! PvP in this game is without a doubt the best out there since Dark Age of Camelot was alive and... Read Full Review

    The next step in the refinement of the classic MMO formula.

    There have been so many MMO's over the past 6 years that have received huge hype, been based on huge franchises and have ended up as huge disappointments. Most of these games have launched with issues, glitches, bugs, m... 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

    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

    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

    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

    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
