Question about Rifts graphics...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So I'm sitting here trying to chose if I'm going to buy Rift on Steam or not. While doing this I'm browsing different forums trying to get a feel for what others think. In one forum I come across a post that said Rift uses the same engine Warhammer online used. Is this true?

I really hope not b/c honestly imo I thought Warhammer was so freaking ugly it was unbelievable. Now I know graphics do not make a game, specially MMO's but that thing was such an eye sore I don't think I could do it.

Thing is I've heard for a mmo Rift is beautiful. I've seen screen shots of some members on here and some did look great and others just looked bland as all get out.

What do you guys think? Screen shots of you gaming out on Rift would be greatly appreciated!!

I don't know if i would go as far as saying that Rift's graphics are as nice as Aion but they definitely are one of the best.

To the OP, I've played Warhamme Online extensively, and this game does not look anything like Warhammer. You'll notice the same "feel" to character movement but don't worry, you wont get stuck on every little pebble though.

honestly, i say give it a try, it's totally worth it

I played it for the first time yesterday at 1920X1200 on ultra graphics i think it looks great.
I am at work so i cant take some screens sorry. but there should be enough out there if you look.

the graphics definately arent as good as Age of conan or Aion, but they are not terrible. Anyone claiming otherwise is flat out bull****ting you. AOC is in fact one of the best looking games made to date, anyone who has been in thunder river, or around khitai knows that.

The characters and armor is rather bland, but some of the monsters and the world itself are very well done artistically speaking.

Engine doesnt determine the graphics, fyi look at UE3 it is capable of many things other than unreal tournament/gears of war graphics.

It is definately a solid mmo offering. tons of content, tons of character building. Its a mix of old school mmos like everquest, and the newer ones like wow.

For me it isnt worth the $50, but i got it for free. To other people, its probably just what they are looking for.

Character movement and UI seems to be very poor.. and spell effects are not even good at all. Also there are so many classes... why so many damn it!

Think I am going to skip on that one : /
