The game is called Sphere, more specifically Sphere: Reborn for english users. I remember reading about this game eons ago but they had not finished beta testing and their first release was in Russian. However, the game is twitch-based pvp with various classes of magic users and melee users. Apparently, it's skill-based as well, and as you level you just allocate points into skills you use. I need help finding the English installer because I know there is one but I can't find it. The one off the website installed it in Russian and I think there is an option for English somewhere because other English users have played it and I can't get past the tutorial part to ask people. Also, quite a lot of people play but they are mostly Russian so we could create a clan. Also, you can own land and build houses. Since original release they have revamped the graphics. Notice the insane jumping because they put skill in jumping lol. It's also 100% free.

open pvp? loot upon death?

WizGamer

Yeah i think it's open pvp and definitely loot upon death.The major attractor is realtime fighting.

I don't know, is this (http://www.sphereonline.ru/en/files.php?PHPSESSID=7def089d1fa299fa22f3 cb846b5dd75d) the Russian or English client?

Looks English to me. Didn't bother to download, though.

If it didn't had the jumping i would try it,there is no point in jumping and shooting mid air,better play an fps.

I want massive battles on the ground ,i want terrain tactics that matter ,i want sieges and walls. how can u have all of them when someone just can jump over.

Too bad cause it seems a nice game (without the jumping)

WizGamer
06-05-2008, 17:59
well the battles are massive...they just aren't physics-controlled all the time.

Pretty good graphics and interface... for a game that's 10 years old :)

And yeah the jumping sucks.

But still okey I guess, not bad for a free game. But I can't be bothered starting on an other realm atm that I know nothing about.

I liked the song tho, anyone know which it is? the first one.

No offense but Russians usually make shitty games, and no I don't count Ukrainians as Russians. I may try the game since I know Russian.

Can someone that has played the game, give us a quick run down on the game basics.

Races.
Class/Professions.
First 10 levels.

The site does not give very much information at all and I cannot find a forum for the game.

Thanks

lol that movie has one comment by me (xmaxdamage)
I tried the italian version like 1 year ago, the game is not instanced (only dungeons are), it has pretty nice weather effect, day/night ad nice "atmosphere" I also asked time ago about the crazy jumps that were in movies but not ingame and some ppl told me it's a bug, other said it's an advanced skill....the bad is that u cannot attack if you dont have a monster or an enemy player in front of you, and the monsters are a bit buggy, u will find a lot of black knights floating in the air in the dungeons; dunno if there's full loot.
the game is skill based, meaning that u choose a char then u become warrior, mage, blacksmiter, bard ecc, depending on where u put ur stat points.
there are tons of professions.

It's not actually in the game according to everyone here who has played it thus far.

06-06-2008, 09:14
if u kill the kittens in the city u first spawn in (but they'r everywhere) ur alignment will turn bad, then at your death u will respawn outside the city and probably near some ohko big monster.
in fact when ur nub (and if ur alignment is not bad) there's a "king protection" that fires a meteor from the sky that ohko every mob that tries to attack you outside (but near) the city...this because it would 1hko you, since you first have to make dungeons inside the noob city and level a little.

Are you playing the Italian or Russian version? Because I'm fluent in Italian so I could play that.

And to the bitchy bitches, jumping is fun. Do you hate jumping because you're so fat that you can't manage to jump at all?
I bet you people played Quake and bawwed about it not being realistic. It's people like you that ruin games by forcing devs to remove things such as bunnyhopping.
