NOT QUITE WOW
I played WOW for several years but got burned out on the killing.. this was just more of it in a lesser quality game.. graphics are not nearly the quality of WOW.. but then nothing is.
maybe for teens
After playing WOW for several years, I have tried several games, but none compare in quality... this is very stick figured.. not for me...
was not worth it for free
I do not write many reviews but i felt it was necissary for this game. I recieved a promotion to play it for free and hated it. I got hrough about 10 minutes of the game and had to stop. I can see the appeal for some, but to me it felt like a cheap knock off of Aion which is also a MMO and a heck of a lot better. But this is just my impression. If want a good MMO try Aion it has everything this game lacks, and if you think this game is good try Aion anyway its free to play and you will see what im talking about.
I love this game it kept me entertained for a very long time, the pvp was awesome, and pve was very interesting. Buy it and Try it
Rift is one of the best MMOrpg games out now, it beats wow in every aspect, people claim its dry or boring, that's because there not giving it time, you cant get to level 25 and decide the game is bad, it takes time to hit level cap, when you do hit 50 that's when the game really starts.
The pvp is great well balanced and the pve is great as well, the population is good giving the fact the game is fairly new, you cant compare population to WoW due to wow being 7years old and the pc requirements are far lower then Rift.,
Rift is more of an adult content game, its far from the cartoon look and went for best quality, pvp or pve its well balanced and runs great, trion keeps up with patches and updates. rift is only going to get better.
A good medium
This game was pretty boring at launch, but they have been steadily releasing content, and now level 50 is anything but boring. In fact, Ember Isles is one of the most fun things I have even played before! Level 50 may be a lot of fun, but that doesn't mean the otherr 49 are. The game feels grindy, and uninspired until level cap. Most of the zones feel the same. However, the zones are beautifully done, and the invasions let you see the full beauty of it. Level 50 has content for hardcore and softcore players, and will not dissapoint. All in all, it's a good game if you can stick out a few levels of pure grind.
This game is refreshing to play and the Rift battles are fun. I played other MMO's in the past and this one is the best by far. Anybody that says WOW is better is a fool....that game is 7 years old and you have to be 7 to still enjoy it. I highly recommend this game.
I bought this game a few months ago and when i first started playing i thought i would be hooked. But after getting to around level 25ish it got really dry and boring. Sure the rifts are fun but after a while they are really boring and the entire game is a constant grind. I am a WoW player hear me out. This game did not live up to my expectations. I was looking foward to a new MMORPG because i have been playing wow for about 4 years. The thing that really made me dislike the game is that there is no arena and the pvp is terrible. The pvp is just so dry and boring. The population of the game is no where near to what WoW has. My reccondmendation is that just stick with WoW (world of warcraft)
this game is amazing. it has best graphics i have ever seen on PC, great customization, unlike WoW, where its like 'oh whats the best spec?' this is mostly even gameplay throughout the classes. no class is completely overpowered. healing with a mage, while switching specs and than supporting with earth and fire is so much fun. the only reason i dont rate 10 is because at around 30, it becomes boring to level. other than that this game is perfect
Good for casuals.
This game has by far the best graphics for any MMO currently released. The class system is fun and gives a wide variety in play styles for each archetype. Gameplay is really smooth and I've never had any problem with lag.
Having played since launch I am finding it hard to continue with this game. It was fun for awhile, but I've lost interest after leveling every class to max and gearing them out. It's a decent game and deserves consideration, just don't expect it to be an mmo to keep your interest over an extended period of time.
