Tried Rift - what do you guys think?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I played it for about half an hour. Feels way too much like every other MMO I've played (although layed out almost exactly like World of Warcraft in the skills department) and I just couldn't get ahold of it, so I logged out and started reading the internet again.

What I liked about it: graphics were okay (by okay I mean 6/10), text was rather attractive to look at (UI gets a reasonable score here, 8/10) and it felt like a seemingly large world.

What I didn't like about it: casting spells felt stiff (I was a cleric,) moving was very corny related to walking and jumping (as well as turning. Who the hell turns with their feet both on the ground in a video game in the year 2011?!,) and a lot of the skill systems felt very WoW-esque. And the game was in serious need of a heavy dose of polish. (Though what game isn't, anymore?)

Anyway, I really usually want to give games an honest to goodness chance, but they're going to be charging for this? I just.. blah. I dunno. Should I give it more than thirty minutes?


Also I looked four pages back for a Rift-related thread and couldn't find one, so here's a new thread for all ya'll.

So far i have had to download the client 3 times now.

Either i get some random error message that no one seems to know what it is or means or my connection gets interrupted and the recover files system does not work properly. Many people have issues of the game crashing when they press "Play:.

My advice is to stay away from this game until the first month subs have ended. If the game has fixed its issues and there are still many active players then go ahead and buy it.

I can safely cross this off my list of games to be excited for.

I stayed up last night & played a Dwarf Warrior & I gotta change my initial Impressions here. I got farther into the game & it really started to shape up a bit. I played up to 10 on a few different classes/characters but even till level 10 it was kind of Meh to me.

Anyways like I said I got alot further into the game got my first mount & I actually started having some fun last night. They def have some work cut out for them tho but I can now say that I do see myself getting more involved into Rift.

I like the way the Talent Tree's are being used in the game. It is very unique in my opinion.

If I had to give a score id say 7/10 just because alot of it doesnt feel new at all. Alot of it is a Rip off of current MMOs

Saying Rift needs a heavy dose of polish, even in its current state... makes me wonder what the hell you played.

I got into the beta and so far I have to say its okej.

But as bfish said they need to polish it up quite a bit but I do like the style of the game so I will buy the game after a couple of reviews.

Dude, it needs MASSIVE polish. It is so rough right now it's sad. Here's hoping they can properly patch it up for a proper retail release.

I know a WoW clone when I'm playing one....it's boring. I love the Rift idea but I was so bored out of my mind after about 2 hours of playing that I just quit and uninstalled and this was my first time playing during the first day of the Beta.

I've played a lot of rift (every beta so far). Once you get in to the 20s the game really picks up. From 1-20 is pretty much like any other MMO. You learn how to play the game.

In the 20s though, you really start to think about your builds. Which souls you want for each of your roles. You have to start thinking about the roles you need for the different places you fight and different things you do.

Rift is great in that you aren't "stuck" with a role. You can play a warrior and be a dps role, support role or a tank role. You can play a scout and be a dps role, support role, or tank role. A cleric can be a nuker, a melee, or a healer. A caster can be a nuker, a support, or a healer. It's pretty awesome.
