And it  is called Rifts. being packaged as the new next gen mmo. It`s set for april as a release. if it`s as good as it looks.. i may truly not go back to WoW come that time.

And what pray tell would delineate this game from the Dablo-style skill trees and otherwise standardized practices of the MMORPG?

Played it.

Might as well be WoW: Alternate Dimensions. :/

Seriously..aside from the Class System, it's not that impressive.

Aion had pretty graphics too, but that really didn't compete well.

"It's the next WoW" or "Its the WoW-killer" has been a catchphrase amongst MMO Developers since, well, WoW came aobut. And every single time the result has been underwheaming, disspointing or just plain bad. Rift is just another face in the crowd; a game that offeres niothign that WoW doesn't save for a different art style. It's not a bad game, but it's not original, exciting, new, dfferent or interesting in any way.

Of course, to me calling Rift bad is just saying it's the bottommost design on the bottommost section of the gaming totem pole. :)
