Rift:

 

Pros:

Good controls.  Great graphics.

 

Cons:

You can now jump on massive cliffs and take no damage when you land.  That's dumb.  Let's jsut hold the players hands, so we can lead them to 60th level.  What the hell.

 

Patches:

Patches mostly just to make the game hold your hand more, like 4th edition DnD.

 

Unbalanced:

Whatever.
