GameSpot's E3 2005 Editor's Choice Award
" Rifts: Promise of Power is going to be a lot of fun for complete Rifts noobs, too. If you enjoyed Final Fantasy Tactics Advance or the Fallout series, it might be worth looking into an N-Gage in the near future, because this game looks as though it will combine the tactical depth of the former with the atmosphere and exposition of the latter."

Gaming Horizon
"With expansive hours of gameplay and good variety with enemies and options, role playing fans will definitely want to look out for Rifts as it releases later this year for the N-Gage."

"[ ... ] it looks like Nokia and Backbone Entertainment are making great progress toward delivering on the astronomical promises they've made."
"For fans of Kevin Siembieda and his pen-and-paper role-playing game Rifts, the dream of a video game based on the popular franchise has long been unfulfilled."

"Thankfully so, as Rifts: Promise of Power is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated titles of 2005. Backbone’s commitment to translating the pen-and-paper role-playing game shows in its depth of gameplay and richness of presentation."
