I never remember Rift looking this good although I was running it at absolute max settings.

@BigAndShiny

Have you visited Iron Pine Peak?
It's probably the most gorgeous looking zone in the game (so far) and it indeed does look as good as that screenshot suggests.

Rift has some of the most impressive environments, they look so good you take them for granted and don't really think about it, its a shame I don't enjoy the game anymore

Rift has pretty impressive graphics period, and somehow screenshots look even more impressive than the actual scene does ingame. I'm not saying that as a bad thing since it's gorgeous either way, but I was always pretty stunned when I looked at the minute detail on my screenshots after I took them. Characters, lighting effects, environments, even mounts... Most games seem to be the opposite, like I feel screenshots never do WoW any justice compared to the actual gameplay.

I have to agree, gorgeous game and a lot of fun while it lasted for me, but I just lost track of it and can't make myself go back and re-up my subscription.

I used to be amazed at gorgeous ingame scenery screenshots like this. Then I discovered the real thing is so much better looking, and the game ones suddenly seemed less interesting.

@h4ngedm4n

Very true. While that screenshot is nice, nothing beats the view in Olympic national park in the summer or winter. (Smile)

@h4ngedm4n If only the real thing were always so accessible. I'd pay $15/mo. for that.

Very good looking zone, also the area that made me start to question the game.
After the third time of going back into those caverns I'd had it. But at least at that level it wasn't the only option unlike earlier levels.
