Great MMO for those bored of WoW5
played WoW for the past 5 years and I am pretty much done with it, nothing ever changes in the world other than new instances and armor that takes 1000000 hours to get. Eff that noise. I personally have had enough of the WoW formula, so I gave Rift a shot. I must say, it has me hooked. The graphics are great, kinda like Aion's style. Combat is pretty much the same as any MMO, click attack press hotkey to use ability. The quests are your standard quests, kill 5 of this go get this from here, but the major difference in this game, are the Rift segments. Randomly around the world a Rift will open up in the sky and plop down monsters coming to destroy you and everyone around it. Your job is to go to it and kill everything that comes out of it, closing the rift and earning rewards. The BEST thing this game did is make it so that if someone is attacking a monster that you need for a quest, if you attack too, it counts! No more waiting for a respawn only to have it ganked again. You automatically join into a "Rift group" when you enter a rift, no queing or invites, you just go have at it. The Class system is unlike any I've ever seen in an MMO. You start off as either Warrior, mage, cleric, or rogue. Then there are 8 sub classes per class you can choose from after earning their "souls". You can use 3 at a time to make cool combinations to fit your fighting style. There are also a host of abilities in each subclass and talent trees. Like I said, if anyone's sick of WoW and wants something just as good, if not better in some areas, then grab Rift.Report this review
Rift - Bargain5
The game looks beautiful, plays well and so far have I have no issues will it. The fact that this came bundled with an 8GB pendrive at this fantastic price certainly helped persuade me to buy but all things said the game or the drive are both worth twice the selling price. Great deal Zavvi.Report this review
