Rift has a very complete character creation, giving you the opportunity to have a billion different playthroughs with many different builds (and you can store up to 4 builds in each character you create!)

Graphics are fantastic, really colorful and with amazing light effects. Character animations are fluid and the landscape seems alive. The controls and mechanics are very easy to master, you learn them all very quickly.

The PvP mode is excellent. As the possibilities of character creation are, sort of, infinite, you never know what to expect from your adversaries. The surprise element is a decisive factor in those battles. And, even better, PvP gives you XP, so you don't need to kill thousands of wolves to level up.

Rift is an excellent MMORPG, you should at least give a try with the free trial.

Fun Game

Rift, as you probably know, is an MMORPG. (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game.) In some areas Rift plays like many other MMOs, such as the combat, but it does shine through in a couple places. First off, there's the Rifts. Rifts really mix up the gameplay because you don't know when one will appear or where, and once they're open they spill forth many strange creatures that you have to fend off. Another thing is the zone-wide invasions. These only occur occasionally, but when they do everyone has to fight to beat it. If you arn't able to complete it in time, more rifts open and monsters spawn all over the place, so you have to clean up the mess. Another cool thing about rift is the class system. You can basically be whatever role you want with any of the classes. While Rift is a very fun game at first, after awhile it can kind of wear on you, and cease to be the amazing game it was when you started. It is, however, definately worth trying.

Great MMO for those looking for something fresh yet familiar.

This is a great game. Sure it is similar to WoW but don't let that deter you.

Pros

First and Foremost Rifts, at higher levels on a pvp server they are great fun combining pvp and pve in massive zone events.

The soul system provides a lot of choices when building a class. This can lead to many options for each class, playing a cleric doesn't mean you have to be a healer.

There is a lot to offer for both casual and hardcore players. Hardcore players will always have better gear, but casuals have many different ways to get gear depending on their preference. PVP, Instances or Rift rewards.

It looks great if you have a pc that can run it at high settings, but it still looks good at lower settings.

Cons

Similar to WoW. Yes this will be a con for some, some people are looking for something more unique and Rift might not fit that bill.

Other than that I can't even think of many reasons to avoid this one if you are looking for a new MMO to kill some time on.

Conclusion

A Great MMO that was solid right out of the gate. There is a lot of fun to be had if you don't mind some definite similarities to WoW. If you are looking for something groundbreaking look elsewhere.
