Talk about Montezuma's revenge. You should be safe as long as you don't drink it.

I'm getting a bit disappointed now.

Every type of rift we see is a bunch of tentacle-y bits in the sky with some unique particle effects and a different spawn table. They all look the same. Do they all play the same?

You are forgetting certain things.

Each rift has a different otherworldly ideology

Rifts are not just "instances" they are, literally factions that wage war against each other. You can ally yourself with one rift or another, you can log into the game in the village only to find that it became a battlefield between fire and water.

On other hand not all rifts that appear act violently. For example rift can spawn on top of village, changing the enviroinment, npcs, quest types and monsters around it

As time passes this game seem to interest me more than GW2. I was very thrilled to hear what they plan for PvP in their podcast 2 days ago.

Wow, someone is taking their goth a little too seriously: "Cabals clad in the skins of children, chanting in tide pools by moonlight". Blech. Lovecraft wannabe much?

Uh, read a bit more into them.

Plane of Water - yes, VERY Lovecraft. Cool.

Plane of Life - Natural selection on overdrive, also hedonism.
"This is a place of beauty, but no peace, where eternity is one long, bloody chain. Childlike in loveliness and cruelty, a faerie torments wildlife with illusions and traps, until plucked from the air by a leaping raptor and chomped to bloody gobs. Plants pulsate and grow in around the reptile, forcing it to flee until a forest troll snatches it up by the tail and breaks its back on a tree trunk. As the troll feasts, the tree— actually a treant’s leg— uproots and crushes him flat. The treant moves for the first time in centuries, seeking a new spot to root until it succumbs to the poison of sun-bright flowers."

Plane of Death - The Underworld
"While death is the natural end to life, there is nothing of rebirth and healthful change in Regulos’s realm. The Plane of Death devours, it erodes the flesh from living bones, stealing vital energy. Its denizens spread slow, painful rot through virulent diseases, or infect the mind with fear, nightmares, or outright compulsion."

Plane of Fire - Chaos, and the cycle of destruction, regrowth, and destruction over again.
"The red dragon is chaos incarnate. Any goals beyond sowing turmoil and ruin are a waste of his time. While many of the other dragons of the Blood Storm have additional motives controlling Telara, Maelforge sees anything beyond the cycle of annihilation, regrowth, and new destruction as decadent self indulgence."

The Earth Rift has been shown in videos, but no lore info yet. The Air Rift hasn't been shown yet.
