Technically, imho, the game blows everything else away. It's just that personally I can't stand the setting.

[I'm very much a 'systems' person, and I was simply blown away by what the devs have achieved there]
I played RIFT during the Beta and bought the collectors edition of the game. I subscribed to the game for the first 6 months of its existence. I believe I am still Grandfathered into one of their monthly sub packages, if I ever do decide to go back to RIFT.

While the game is outstanding as far as graphics, it is only a glorified version of WOW with a slight twist. Don't get me wrong, I love RIFT, and I would still be playing if I could afford multiple subscriptions, but by NO means its the BEST MMO to date.

RIFTS real weakness, if not major flaw is in its lore and storyline. These two concepts in a MMO is THE most important aspects of any MMO. For example: Guild Wars - Granted its an older game and inferior graphically compared to RIFT, TOR, & STO - Yet its lore and storyline is very compelling and I am looking towards GW2.

If you compare RIFT to WOW, TOR, and STO in regards to Lore - the latter 3 have it in spades
