I think it's the best IDE nowadays for game development, mainly in Unreal, but it's also the best one in cost/benefit for Unity. It might not work for people who prefer a more lightweight IDE, it's still pretty heavy and its indexing takes around 2~3GB of ram, but it's worth the quick indexing and IntelliSense.

Our experience of JetBrains Rider is that it is very good for both standalone C# applications and for developing Unity games. Its C# refactoring suggestions are useful most of the time, and it also has specific Unity recommendations that are helpful to close the gap between experienced and less experienced Unity developers.

If working with legacy code, then Rider includes a really good debugger that works with .NET Framework and Mono. It also has built-in support for JavaScript, TypeScript, HTML, and CSS, which is very useful if your project is front-end technologies related. In case of a project that is very heavy on SQL and databases, then better tools exist on the market.

Rider can pretty much be a drop-in replacement for Visual Studio in most scenarios. The development experience is wonderful, and I have rarely had problems with building, running tests, and debugging applications. You might need to keep around Visual Studio to publish or build installers, but the Rider team is constantly adding feature parity and new features, so the future looks even stronger.

Rider works great for all .Net development. For what I am using it for, it's way more performant and stable than full visual studio. It has support for Xamarin (Android and iOS) as well as VB.Net and F#. While I have not done any desktop development, it does support it. However, if you are using some 3rd party UI controls, you may run into some issues getting those control references into the project, and you may still have to use Visual Studio to add them.
