This will be the tightest comparison of membership plugins because they are both really close in features, ease of use, and solid backing. If I was to give an edge to one, it would be MemberPress because I have personally experienced better support from them, more personalized support, where I really felt like they wanted to do anything to help me. I am not saying the RCP support is bad, because it's not, but it's not as great as MemberPress. Features, prices, etc are all going to be similar, but even though I am giving the edge to MemberPress, you really can't go wrong with either.

MemberPress Things To Consider
MemberPress comes at an annual cost, not one time. Really though, with a membership plugin, you want access to timely support and rock solid updates, so paying an annual fee is completely understandable.
My biggest issue with MemberPress has always been the plain looking checkout form. It ugly big time. And if you are not a developer, it's not going to be easy to improve it. I have raised this concern with the developer, but they haven't done anything to improve it.
Restrict Content Pro Things To Consider
On the surface, Restrict Content Pro seems reasonably priced, but when you start to dig into what comes with the various packages, you start to see that it's an expensive solution. Many features that should be standard are only available in the $249 per year package. The most notable missing feature is content drip.

MemberPress Review Summary
As far as membership plugins go, you will be hard-pressed to find one that is better then MemberPress. It is very simple to setup and manage membership websites and their support will be there for you when you need them.
Restrict Content Pro Review Summary
Restrict Content Pro is a serious plugin to consider using for your membership website. Sadly many basic features are only available in the $249 per year package. Now if you are a web developer, and are going to use RCP on many websites, this cost is not that big of a deal, but if you just need it to power 1 website, it's expensive.
One of the interesting things is that this is just about the only reliable membership plugin for WordPress that still offers a lifetime plan, but at a fairly steep price, $499
