I think I am a real fan of Xian Jian because I want to play every single version of Xian Jian game to support the Xian Jian team.
Even almost everyone says Xian Jian OL is horrible, I still payed and get the cdkey for the game.
Here are some screen shot I took during the game. The open beta just started today at 8:00pm PST (12:00pm in China)

In the end, I have to say that I did not enjoy the time when I was playing this game :(
It's far below the point I was expecting.
I mean, yea, the graphic is little better than Xian Jian 4, but, compare to all other mmos, (and I'm not even thinking about compare with WOW.) the level of graphic system is still too poor. I wonder what were they doing all these years.....

I turned everything Highest with biggest resolution.
My laptop:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2.3GHz
Graphic Card: nVidia GeForce 9600M GT 512MB
4GB RAM

Why does it seem that XY and Linger were just put in there as gimmicks?
Seriously, they look like they were in there just to sell the game. As glad as I am for there to be continuation to the story, it just seems like they were stuck in there just to make a reference to the original Xian Jian.

The graphics... well I never played Xian Jian for the graphics. I suppose they could have done a better job on the hands but to me, Xian Jian 4 was already good enough.

Is the story any good?

And how did Linger come back from the dead?

i think with the budget to make Pal OL. better they remake xj1 to nice 3D graphic, sounds, and story add ons maybe they can make it same quality as final fantasy XII or another choice make pal movie like final fantasy advent children :P

That would have been nice! But yeah.. I guess they already made the XP version of PAL1 and that was kinda considered '3D'?

I know that they're going to stick in Pal 1 and Pal 2 characters wherever they can but is it likely that they will put in Pal 4 characters?

Also I agree that the budget could be better spent on another rpg. A sequel to Pal 2 that would set a better stage for Xianjian online would be more appropriate than trying to tack it onto the train wreck of a story that was Pal 2.

Mannnnnnnnnn
Is this the best graphic Chinese MMORPG can produce?! I mean honestly.
Look worst than zoomed in WC3.

And does this actually forward any plot? I mean how would that work with an MMO + Pal 5?

I mean after World of Warcraft there won't be Warcraft IV, because all the plot progression will be through patches and expansion, and WoW has a lot of background for that. But for XJ can you really accomplish that much...I fear for this game.

And how is Ling Er still alive?

Why, with the characters looking all so gorgeous in Pal 4 that they can't make these characters look just as good? I mean really..

Uh... idk. When i saw it i thought Linger's hands were funny... looked like blocks.

Yeah XJ4 graphics were gorgeous but I guess Softstar just doesn't have the budget of some other companies out there.

I secretly deep down in side want this to fail. If it works they'll start using it to do the plot lines and i can only imagine an entire forum harassing seanluusa for the plot.

Also the plot through the MMORPG won't be as good. They'll release it episodically with no consideration for the grand scheme of things.

If this flops i think they'll just go off on a different direction with the MMORPG and perhaps have Pal 5 give some real plot.

There could be many reasons Linger is alive pick your poison:
1. Fairy Yao revived her
2. Softstar called upon her to help market XJ online
3. They stuffed her with worms too, just like YR
4. magic
5. she's not alive, it was a really long hallucination

I feel that the team already tried their best designing this game. It isn't an easy task in the first place. I see they tried to insert some storyline into the gameplay.

I played ZuOnline (蜀山OL). I would say the graphics in Zu is really much worse than this. And in Zu, after the quests are completed, the whole storyline is abandoned totally. It become totally chaotic in the English server, when people just start using money and exploiting bugs in the game, totally ruining the gameplay. Does that happen in Xian Jian OL?

hahas. Quite eager to try Xian Jian OL actually. Anyone know where can I download/register for it now?

however I heard the game is totally ruined by 9you (which is the agent in Mainland China) and the Taiwan version is much better so you may also want to try this:
