Probably not supposed to be posting these, but alas I don't listen very well.  Beautiful looking game so far.

Ya, WoWish.  However, I kinda like the way things are done in this.  It's quite different than some of the other MMRPG.  I'm still wrapping my head around it, so I'll give move feedback as I play more (only been playing for about 30 minutes so far.)

Gaining in levels.  First glimps of a rift with tentacles.

The graphics seem pretty nice, but if the world has limitations that is always what brings me back to uo :)

The rift instance encounters are kinda fun.  This one popped up right in the middle of the magic users school.  It's easy to jump into the encounter and participate.

Unfortunately, I'm not a PvP person so I can't give you any advise.  I'm stilll playing this however; it's pretty good.  People claim it's a WoW rip-off, but they haven't played it much then.

just by what ive read and seen on youtube its definately not a wow rip-off and i'm not the one so quick to judge something i havent played. its just i pretty much play anything for the pvp aspect of it but i guess a little bit of new is always refreshing at least for a while so i think i'll give it a go

I'd like to hear more about what UOer's think about this game. My buddy who is a pretty avid gamer loves it and has been playing the hell out of it, but we disagree on games somewhat often.

I've been thinking about checking Rift out myself. The screenshots do look like a less polished WoW but if you guys are saying they are nothing alike I'll certainly bite.

Retnuh, did/do you think the pvp in WoW is a drag? If so, I'm just curious what about it you don't like. I have characters I'm leveling exclusively in the battlegrounds and I am enjoying the hell out of it but it does get redundant, kind of like playing TFC. I was going to try out a pvp server to see how I like that.

Hmm, I think they are more polished.  The graphics engine is much better in Rift (same as Warhammer).  In order to do the quests, I haven't had to look at sites like WoWHead, all the necessary hints are built into the UI.  Those kinds of refinements go on and on.  I can't believe this is a "new" game.  The level of polish and stability is amazing to me.

If you play Rift just gently, you'll think, "man, this is a total WoW rip."  However, it takes a bit of time to see how they are so different.  I asked that question to my WoW God-Friend, and he definitively stated they two only look similar.  If you stop and think a bit about it, WoW is a rip of EQ2 which was a rip of DAoC which was a rip of EQ1 which was a rip of UO. Frankly, Rift is a great blending of the best parts of all the games so far.  You just have to give it 20 levels to start really seeing the differences clearly.

My friends are having a ball in the PvP area; they are actually dragging me into it tonight.  Will be the first time I've PvPed in a 1st person MMORPG.  This should be interesting...

TM please do give a brief review how you think PVP is. I've heard good things but as I said, want more info from fellow UO players.
