The combat is so slow and the animations are completely bland and uninspiring.  If they add a 3rd party animation team come in and redo their combat system I would greatly love to give the game a new try.

Not like Guildwars 2 at all *cough*

Seriously though, I enjoy the combat in this game a lot, its part of the reason I like it. Its no Tera Online, but for me I find the combat a lot better in Rift then I do in Guildwars 2. Its funny how you find the combat poor in Rift while I find it poor in Guildwars 2, heck, the games weakest point. Guess we all do have different tastes though. :)

I played the first few months of Rift, skill system was decent, didn't like the 1 key super macros (had a healer that I had like 1 key for close stuff and 1 for distance fights), the world seemed small and limited for experience hunting, and I was not a big fan of their crafting/harvesting system (too simple and a too obsolete).  I am sure this has changed somewhat, but those were my initial roadblocks to staying. 

Trion does seem like a very good company, and if Rift is your type of MMO, then it would be a soild choice to play.

easy to get groups no matter what your poison is

at max level, yes - I find groups at any level -if you are a mid level dps getting a group is not always that fast, and warfront queue times can still be sporadic, maybe that has changed after the recent merge, I havent tried since they made everything one battlegroup - That's why you queue up and go quest until the queue pops. I do that in WoW, SWTOR, and Rift...no biggie


great graphics that can be enjoyed on the lowest computer up to amazing visual experience on a top notch rig

you forgot to mention the shoddy performance.  seeing characters load in as green condoms isnt an amazing visual experience. - I have no performance issues and I am playing on a college level laptop  well thats fantastic for you, but the official forums will back up my point.  i am certainly not alone on this - Regardless of what the forums say - I am playing it on a dell laptop with HD3000 graphics, i3 processor and 4 gb RAM

a community of devs that do seem to care how your time is spent in your game I actually feel like im a customer not a number

ths is true in a lot of games, they just dont get credit for it - It is not true in a lot of games. Most are horrible.  thats your perception.  And I think its mostly true about Rift.  I do think people gave them a free pass on trying to tell their fanbase conquest is what they asked for.  If SoE or Blizzard tried to do that there would be massive complaints.  But as I said, I think trion ultimately does care.  And I think most dev teams care too, I just dont think they are as good at the politics of it as Trion is. - They are the most consistant t cranking out content...period

If you are looking for a new game to play try rift its not the newest title out or the one with the most comments on a website just a solid mmo. That is challenging at all lvls.

challenging at all levels except 1-49 - I feel that it is more challanging that most other MMO's. The only real challenge from 1-49 is the mob density.  Its by no stretch of the imagination a challenging game to level, unless you choose to go to zones a few levels above yours, or use an illogical build. - Rift has been the only game in many years that makes me cautious where I venture due to fear of death.

 

Look, its understandable that people love this game.  But posts like this are a joke.  Almost everything you listed is something youll find in every other game on the market.  Other than the class builds and world events, everything you listed applies almost word for word to EQ2 as well.  And EQ2 has its own list of things that Rift doesnt.  Same with any other themepark on the market, even SWTOR could have a post very similar to this.

I feel that he was spot on with these comments. I feel that you are totally wrong on the ones I highlighted.

Again, stop by the forums some time.

Outside of that castle in gloamwood with 2,000 mobs per square inch i cant think of a single place where I was cautious near leveling up.  You can argue at 50 zones like EI are more difficult than most games max level content (until you outgear it), but 1-49 Rift is EASY.

Oh and you have a sig bashing GW2...I dont play it anymore but there is no possible way you can tell me with a straight face you thought Rift was tougher than GW2 leveling.  Not saying GW2 was that difficult either, but defintely a large step in difficulty over Rift.

to OP:

you see i had the exact opposite experience. i got into Rift when they had the free beta and played for a whole 2 hours before shutting it off and never looking back. to be fair i was looking for something different, new and innovative from teh old themepark formula.

the game itself felt exactly like a remake of Warhammer, except that almost everyone had a pet and somehow there was an invasion of aliens instead of orcs. the animations and art style were very reminiscent of War, the "rift" were pretty much public quests, the collision control was like in War, even the layout of the land felt like War.....2 hours and i said "nope, not doing THIS again...."

it just felt incredibly boring and repetitive. just something i've done and redone endlessly for the past 5+ years.

 

i'm glad it works for you though.

To be fair, while the Guardian side starter area is extremely reminiscent of WAR, the Defiant side is less so and the further you get out of the starter zones the less of that "vibe" is there -- though, granted, visually it's always there to a degree. 

Honestly I would have been happier if Rift actually had been more like WAR and less like WoW. As it is, while it lacks any of the charm and a fraction of the content, the gameplay is so similar that while you may not be in Azeroth, you can be forgiven for needing to check the map just to be sure.

It really is the best fantasy mmo at the moment . It does remind me a little of WoW but in a good way because it reminds me of what WoW used to be but isn't anymore .  This is about as close you'll get anywhere to Vanilla WoW or the TBC era WoW at the moment in any mmo .  Unlike WoW its not facepalm easy . Also if you like the WoW bgs Rift has some similar ones to WSG and AB they take place on slightly bigger maps and they look at lot better . Downside is Rift doesn't run on every PC no matter how low the spec is .  I would also say it proberbly doesn't have as diverse a game world as WoW just yet ( it may next week though once the expansion is out ) . I'm not someone that calls every new mmo a WoW clone but to some degree Rift is but what it does is it just lift that type of game up a notch . For instance I play Walock build and its very similar to the WoW warlock but I can mix it with a chloromancer and that makes it very different because I now have some healing abilitys . Or take my marksman its very much like my WoW hunter but then I mix it with assasin and it takes on some of the rogue abilitie you would get from a rogue in WoW .

When I first played the Guardian starter areas I though so too also the first warfront reminded me a bit of a Warhammer one . Other than that there really no relation between the two games apart from the events being a vastly superior version of the public quests . I would actually love to see Rift emmulate some of Wars keep sieges they were fun .

Im just curious as to how you feel this is.  The talent trees do work a lot more like Vanilla/tBC, but I think the game is much closer to WOTLK/Cata in endgame structure.
