To give you a little info I was in the last 3 closed betas, and the open Beta.

Lemme start off by saying the game is fun! By being a late comer to the mmo market they had a chance to steal... erhm, borrow a majority of the best ideas that are out there and incorporate it into their own game.
Then they added a very chaotic based system on top of that, in a good way. You can have just about every class do just about everything (mages still can't really tank, and warriors can't main heal, but that's about it), and the world is full of randomly spawning RIFTS that may appear on your quest mob, or even the town you're hiding in.

The bad is that the game isn't fully polished, there needs to be a bit of balancing for classes (I'll leave that to the rift thread to get into) both for pve and pvp, some of the designs are a little stilted and not that visually enticing, and so on.

But overall it's a very expansive and immersive game, tons of work went into it, and it shows. High level content I can't speak to, but for the most part it's well worth a try!
