"First off, I like to say, I don't have this version of the TV series. But I got a different version back in China couple years ago, along with Chinese Paladin 4 (the game) when it came out. This show basically introduce me to the world and culture of PAL. I watched the TV show before I play the original RPG, so I tend to side with the TV show. But from my perspective, I think this TV series is very very good, it match with most of the story line in the RPG (at least to the levels which I get through, never beat PAL 1 ).
It is a martial art / magic genre. So not your traditional Jinyong or Wong Fei Hung stories. Which made it special in some senses.
Even though the graphic is not really that good, it is acceptable, since it is based off of a game. Like that the Chinese Paladin RPG series, the main focus is the story. It is funny, sad at some points... the soundtracks are awesome. The casts are also very great. They used the original ending in this, I know there are multiple endings out in newer version of the game, but they stick with the old one in the TV version. Personally, I don't like this ending. But maybe it is this ending that made PAL famous...
Definitely recommended for people who love PAL. But 50 USD, this is quite expensive... compare to the 18 RMB I spent. And it is legal too, but it was just the economic version that is actually affordable to local living there (Bought in a super market).
Can't wait till Chinese Paladin 3 come out this summer!"
