I actually downloaded it, I couldn't get to your server though.  I played for about 6 hrs.  It is definately fun.  I was just glad I was able to DL 20 gigs in an hour!

So is it a RIFTS clone?
All this happened... more, or less.

No it isn't.  It's very much its own thing but it does take some things that RIFT does very well and I'd say improves on them, like the event system etc.  The whole game seems massive as well.  My only complaint is that at times I wasn't sure what the objective was.  Normally I'd have to say that once I figured it out it was fairly obvious but you we'll see how that pans out.  I am really enjoying The Secret World too.

Having played both, I would say it is very unlike Rifts, although Rifts had a more rudimentary version of 'events'.

There are many innovative PvE concepts, plus 3-way realm PvP (where you are bolstered ala SWTOR), as well as 'structured' PvP, where you are set to max level (including equipment.) So gear plays no role in sPvP except the choices you make.

WvW is very fun, with siege engines, war golems, taking and defending keeps, etc.

I didn't get a chance with the PvP unfortunately.

Not sure I'll have time for this, with all the stuff I have going on in STO.
