I think, speaking for those of us who were lucky to play the first closed BETA weekend, that the product so far is well above average. The first open BETA weekend went very smooth. The game played well, so well that at times I actually forgot it was still only the BETA. In fact, I found myself getting so wrapped up in the game that I would have to make a conscious effort to remember to look for bugs and report them. Over the 3 day weekend, I probably turned in about 10 or so issues. However, they were very minor ranging from such things as "missing head on character view..the body was there but his head/face was missing" to simple things such as "npc name halos not moving properly and stacking together making it impossible to read names, etc". There were several others but all relatively minor. What I found most impressive is that after reporting the bugs, they all seem to have been fixed by the end of the weekend. In addition, I think most would agree that if you are looking for truly awesome graphics, the detail of the mobs and NPCS, etc as well as the environments are incredible. So far, from what I have seen of Rift, this game is going to be awesome!
