I have recently read an article that has stated an older game called RIFT created by Trion Worlds that is at least two years old has flopped in their previous trails to envelope the MMO community. But in these recent times Trion Worlds has seemed to be working on their game really well that ones that can beta test this game have really nice things to say, but can it compete with the release of the MMO that everyone and thier pets are waiting for SWTOR.
RIFT is in the genre of D&D style, a truly fantasy like world, but can we accept a game like this with so many other games in the same world, Vanguard, LOTR, and DDO. I don’t know, maybe. I can say that I am intrigued in a game that rereleased itself so it can have fighting chance in our Massive Multiplayed World. I’m picking a copy, are You?

Here is a snip:
RIFT and Star Wars are extremely similar in how they handle classes, and, not surprisingly, neither method is very original. At the core level, both games have four initial classes. Those classes can then be diversified further through specializations and the distribution of points to beef up particular abilities. If you’ve played World of Warcraft or Age of Conan, you know the drill. Star Wars takes it a small step further with the addition of light and dark side points, which can offer abilities unique to your moral alignment.
