Rift carves it's own boring niche into the mmo market.

If you are tired of WoW or the WoW formula then I would not recommend this game. If you are new to MMO's I would recommend WoW over this game. After saying that Rift also reminds me of Aion in that it is slightly shiny as well.
Rift is a mix of mainly Warhammer and WoW. Besides all of the copy pasta from WoW and Warhammer here is what stands out for the worst.
-The combat is abilities on a bar that you spam click, with little interaction.. nothing new here.
- Boring questing.. I know, I know to be expected in an mmo but I don't want to buy another game to put me to sleep.
-Boring professions. You can have three but it is all click the sparkly board on the ground and channel your interact bar for 2 seconds.
It is hard to keep going because basically .. it is everything peopl are tired of WoW for. The formula remains unchanged, but now it is in a slightly shinier shell with clunky animations. ZZZZZZZzzzz
