4.5 MMO Rift Review TheElder11 | 23/04/2012 | See all TheElder11's reviews (2) The game is everything you want from an MMO with great character design - which is very unlike WoW. I played WoW for a year already and its the MMO to beat and after much frustration I was relieved to play Rift. Now I cant even summon the motivation to log into WoW because it just lacks something. Rift is the best MMO at the moment and I hope the population of WoW change and support Rift since its much better and deserves to develop. The character you create is much cooler and personal - plus there is a real uniqueness about your abilities that really tailor to your personality. Its cool that you can have a mount at level 1 and all the characters look really nice.Negatives - There are not as many races - but with updates there will be. There is not as much content but you have everything to play for with updates etc. There is not as many armour options - the armour isn't quite as epic as WoW's top end gear but even so, I prefer the design in Rift. The level is currently capped at 60 since its the first episode in the game.Overall - WoW would get an 9/10 as an MMO (But its quite childish atm) and Rift would also get 9/10 because its lacks the same breadth as WoW. Titan is the new MMO from Blizzard (Creators of WoW) and this promises great gameplay with up to date graphics. Rift is a great filler if not the change I needed. I would probably recommend WoW for first time MMO gamers and Rift when you get bored or frustrated!
