But the Rifts are in the equation, so what's your point? All that statement means is that Rift doesn't have much in common with other games because rifts are in the equation.

Err... actually, what it means is Rift has a lot in common with other MMOs despite Rifts being in the equation.

Crazy how you spun that. The kind of mental gymnastics required to translate Rift being a very standard, WoW-template MMO with one twist - Rifts - added into the mix to mean "not having much in common with other games" is mind-boggling.

I enjoyed Rift's very polished gameplay and the setting, and the Rift invasions are a nice diversion to break up the monotony of questing (and boy does it get monotonous in that game). But when you get down to it, it's basically a repeat of most MMOs to come out in the last 8 years, but with one new feature on top of it. And really, Rifts aren't really even that new. They're a spin on Public Events, which had been done before Rift. They just weren't the namesake of their respective games).
