For added excitement, enemies from one type of rift will usually fight enemies from another rift if close enough, even with swarms of players beating on them both. If you're feeling ambitious, you can even open one yourself provided you find a "tear" in the landscape. Yet if you and your fellow Telarans fail to close the rifts in time, the monsters start terrorizing the whole countryside, down to the quest hubs that story progression so desperately depends on.

Rift does a lot of things right; others, like the dull quests, err a bit on the other side of average. Its main boasts - the soul subclasses and the dynamic content - are fantastic ideas that occasionally go clunk every now and then, but the core there is solid and makes the game feel worthwhile. As with any MMO, there's very little that can't be fixed (or broken) with time and updates.

This is an online RPG in which you spend your time rushing from rift to rift, completing quests, and joining your guildmates in dungeon runs--not checking the official forums to see when the servers will be coming back up or wondering how long it will be before the auction house is added. If you're burnt out on fantasy MMOGs, you may not be able to look past Rift's more derivative aspects. But if you seek a comfortable blend of the old and the new, this is the online RPG you should be playing.
