Rift is the best game I have ever played. When somebody asked me if it was better than WoW, I responded by smacking them upside the head. If Cataclysm does not make some major changes to WoW, Blizzard is in serious trouble. The only thing keeping them from being overwhelmed by that which makes Rift so amazing is that it contains "Warcraft" and "Blizzard". WoW be damned.
I could probably write up a full review for this game, but honestly, those who haven't had the pleasure of playing the beta should begin doing some serious *** kicking to get a VIP key/beta key for the next 2 betas. This game has some serious innovation to it, and it's paving the world for a better MMORPG.
This is your first game, and I am utterly impressed. Never have I seen a game in such early stages come out so well crafted. Though there are some definite quirks here and there, -- animation glitches, a crash or two once in a while, and that the game can sometimes hog resources even on higher end machines -- there is nothing else that I feel lives up to it. Finally, an MMORPG that can stand up to the current.
See you all in game.
