tl;dr Recommend you read up to and finish vol 9 Alien Resurrection and skip the rest.
... more>>
Spoiler

Chinese Gantz (author admitted he was "inspired" by Gantz) rips off all the worst movies and anime in the past few decades, including all the worst tropes. Characterization is garbage with rampant sexism and characters ripped straight out of battle shonen. Story was 2nd rate to begin with (peaking at Vol 9 Alien: Resurrection), then went to shit after Vol 10 Resident Evil: Apocalypse (didn't finish it but heard the ending was just as shit as Gantz's). Writing is 3rd rate throughout - serviceable but none of the lines are quoteworthy.

Take a look at these gems:

>This message is not coded using 0 or 1's. The source code is not a computer program. It's created with characters and symbols. When a computer breaks through the limit of 0s and 1s, artificial intelligence will develop.
>the latest genetic studies show that this evolution only took 120 years. Not several million, not even several thousand, it's merely 120 years. Humans evolved from dryopithecus to the early man, australopithecus. our evolution exploded only for 120 years, then it was sealed off due to various unkonwn reasons. It has nothing to do with biological evolution. Our evolution has come to a stop.
>The era was after World War 1 and before World War 2 started. There weren't any silencers in this era so they don't have to worry about people noticing the gunshot.
>this city has a diameter of six hundred kilometers. A normal big city is only two hundred kilometer square, but this city is several hundreds.
>Have you seen the map of the distribution of the bugs? Why do they surround three directions and leaving one open? Because they are giving us a hope of escaping.

So the context of that last quote is that they're in starships and the bugs have surrounded them IN SPACE. How the fuck do you get surrounded in 3 directions when there are 3 other directions to escape to? You can tell very little thought went into the factual accuracy and realism department. The author apparently just loves blatantly making shit up that does not make any sense. You don't even have to check it to know that pretty much all the "facts" in this series are completely wrong and nonsensical. What would have been good is if the author simply left out all this bull that was inserted for absolutely no reason, because it makes it look stupid and breaks the immersion. Lots of fantasy novels don't bother with any scientific explanations and they work just fine. It's when you try to add science but you don't actually know any science, that you end up making yourself look like an idiot.

The biggest problem with this novel is that it stopped being exciting about halfway into the story, which was where everyone got resurrected after getting wiped in Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Before then, there was tension and excitement that came from knowing that anyone could die at any moment, and that death was REAL and happened to your real physical body. There was actual tension and feeling of danger in the Grudge, Resident Evil, and Final Destination because important characters were getting killed off left and right. I consider Alien: Resurrection to be the peak of the webnovel, from where it just went downhill. The beginning of that arc was so amazing and exciting start that it can't be compared to the rest of the webnovel - it was original, interesting, creative, exciting, tense - it was all of those and more. I don't want to spoil it so you can just go read it for yourself. Unfortunately the story went straight to shit thereafter. Immediately we got Resident Evil: Apocalypse which was an utterly illogical arc, with everyone getting wiped. As soon as everyone on Team China got killed I realized there was no way to salvage the story anymore. It was not like when Xuan sacrificed himself for the sake of the team in the Grudge, there was no way out of this hole that the author dug for himself. At the point there were 2 ways to go - either the author made their deaths permanent or he resurrected everyone. Unfortunately he chose the latter option, turning it into just the same as the Pain arc in Naruto. Everyone died and then got resurrected just like that. See, the problem with resurrection in a SURVIVAL STORY is that it removes the one and ONLY source of excitement and tension in the novel, which is the sense of impending doom. Not only does resurrection make all the characters sacrifices pointless because they can just be revived, it takes away all suspense and tension because once you know that characters can be resurrected you know that whenever an important character dies the author is just going to resurrect him again. This was the definitive point from which the novel went to shit. All the plot exposition, chapters upon chapters of rehashed movie footage and talking about some evolution bullshit or how Imhotep is actually a good guy that just wants to revive his wife. Yes that was boring too, but the fatal mistake was the mass resurrection. Once that was done, there was no longer any sense that death could come any time and therefore no longer any source of tension or excitement. The Mummy, Jurassic Park, Vampiric Mask (literally shamelessly ripped from Jojo's bizarre adventure), Starship Troopers and Lord of the Rings arcs was pretty much just standard battle shonen garbage, basically consisting of punching enemies until they died for points, it was either that or plot exposition. It's boring since you already know that nothing bad's going to happen to anyone. Once that is established in a survival horror there's no sense in reading anymore.

The characters are overcliched as fuck. Zhao YingKong is literally Killua. She's edgy. She came from a clan of assassins. She can harden her nails too JUST LIKE KILLUA like holy shit dude you literally cannot make it more blatant than that. Oh and also she's super moe and has big boobs too. First of all why the fuck would assassins clans exist in real life. I'm not saying you can't rip anything off other works of fiction, but at least make it believable. YingKong is supposed to come from the real world, like 21st century Earth, not some parallel universe with assassin clans and shit. What the fuck. And why are there so many fucking assassins in this story? There are at least 3 assassins in the story from the various assassin clans somehow. The author has obviously watched too much anime. Secondly why the fuck is her backstory so cringy. Her best friends got killed by her "brother", who is some stereotypical "I want to destroy beautiful things" cardboard cutout sadist. She's normally calm but loses her mind every time she sees him. So basically Sasuke/Itachi in a nutshell.

You can describe all the characters in a single sentence. Zheng is "moralfag MC", Xuan is "devious smart guy", Lori is "MC's sex relief toy", Zero is "that guy who's good with a sniper rifle", WangXia is "patriotic guy who's good with mines", ChengXiao is "pervy comic relief medic", Kampa is "hairy Russian mercenary dude". They are not developed beyond that and that is actually very sad because survival type novels hinge around having solid characterization to make up for the unoriginal (in this case entire setting ripped straight from Gantz) and frankly unbelievable setting. When literally every single line spoken by the characters is just plot exposition, it's not interesting or fun to read. The characters are about as fleshed out as the mercenaries in Predator. Even if characters don't talk you can still flesh them out by examining their expressions and subtle actions which reveal their state of mind, at the very least you could reveal their inner dialogue like in Reincarnator, but this is not done in this novel except for very few occasions like Xuan vs Neos, and there it's not done sensibly. The lack of a Psychology tag for this novel says a lot - it really does not explore characters' psychologies at all. Very lackluster compared to Reincarnator and Dungeon Defense which are both excellent in the characterization department. There's also the pervasive sexism where all the females in Starship Troopers are described as being cowardly medics which is completely contrary to what actually happened in Starship Troopers where women served on the front lines in combat roles just like the men did (the message that all are equal under military service is actually a central theme in ST, something TI's author seems to have missed). All the female characters are written like shit. At the beginning Lan is supposed to be some analytical type, later on she defaults to just fawning over the MC all the time; also they all have big breasts as we're constantly reminded by the author, maybe that's his fetish.

I think the author tried to make up for his lack of characterization skills by resorting to forcing in slice-of-life-y scenes like Xuan agreeing to go fishing with MC even though that was completely against Xuan's character (the author even said that Xuan would never waste his time doing something like fishing when he could be poring over weapons designs or producing weapons instead). Then the fishing scene that he forced in consisted only of Xuan beating everyone else at fishing and that was it. I was like WTF am I reading, is this some shitty Japanese light novel. Let's get this straight. This is a survival novel where each character only gets 10 days to prepare for the next movie. He could be spending his time cultivating Qi or practicing blood energy or studying weapons designs or building weapons or practicing combat drills or working out possible side missions or how to counter enemy tactics or what to do when enemies are immune to sci-fi weapons and so on. Instead they are fishing and just chilling out. A productive use of time. I can understand the others doing something like that but Xuan, well I'm sorry but characters need to be consistent and the author seems to just completely disregard that. Also, they keep doing this even after they get wiped. And the slice of life scenes don't even flesh the characters out either. We didn't get to know the characters better at all. They could have at least told us some stories or any lessons they learned or anything, but no, it's literally just comic relief moments like people competing to pull up bigger fish and ChengXiao getting slapped for staring at the girls' boobs.

Characters often act in the MOST PSYCHOTIC WAY POSSIBLE even where it's not realistic. A college student, faced with danger, chose to blow his hostage's head off so that he can get killed by people who are chasing him, instead of, say, pushing her away and running around a corner to give himself a chance. Why the fuck would he take a hostage if he was just going to kill her off without benefiting himself in any way. He never met them before and they did not know each other, so he literally had no reason to act like that at all other than to be edgy. In the Alien arc the guy who was told to be the bait chose to blow himself up along with everyone else over having a chance of survival. Not very realistic.

Let's talk about Xuan. Xuan is the only person who actually acted realistically at the start of the novel. He explored the limits of the lifeform creation system, he looked for recipes to build equipment out of cheaper materials instead of buying them directly from the system, he looked through all the possible options and determined their advantages and disadvantages. THESE ARE THINGS ANYBODY WITH COMMON SENSE WOULD DO AND YET NOBODY OTHER THAN HIM DOES IT. This is because the author wants to set him up as some kind of super mega ultra genius and had no way of doing so other than by resorting to making all the other characters act like complete retards. As someone once mentioned you cannot write a character smarter than yourself and Xuan is the best example of that. Plenty of times Xuan makes stupid plans like having the useless guy act as the bait, and then the useless guy blows himself up injuring several people. Another time Xuan gave the MC a dagger to take back to the real world with his tracking device on it in order to get data back to the real world, without telling the MC. If the MC didn't take out the dagger, didn't get caught in time, or destroyed the tracking device, or did any of a number of things his plan would have failed, and the MC only managed to get back because he was lucky. There was about a million other better ways of doing that, for example he could have asked Zheng to send an item somewhere whilst hiding the tracker inside the item, without arousing Zheng's suspicions. I mean let's be honest Zheng is not the smartest tool in the shed if he couldn't even recognize that was a tracker blatantly tacked on the knife. Plus with this method he could continuously relay information back to Earth by not arousing Zheng's suspicions whereas with his method, not mentioning the extremely high chance of failure, even if Zheng got back he wasn't going to take back anything given by Xuan ever again and everyone else would be cautious of him, so he just blew his chances of communicating with Earth ever again. Later on he starts making implausible deductions based on zero evidence, which turn out to be wrong, and yet everybody still thinks he is a genius. And also, God should definitely have wiped both Xuan and Zheng, there was no way it would have allowed such an obvious loophole to exist with its advanced technology. The author appears to treat his statements as canonical fact because nobody rebukes his random "70%" estimates which are based on literally nothing, and anyone who questions his estimates are answered with "you cannot possibly understand my plans with your mortal intelligence". It's obvious the author has no idea how to write an actually intelligent character. Xuan either says things that are COMPLETELY OBVIOUS to everyone or deduces things that absolutely cannot be concluded from the available evidence, and his reasoning process does not make any sense either so I strongly suspect the author simply wrote the story backwards to make the events suit Xuan's predictions. Most notably, the characters do not engage in critical evaluations like - why did we fail that last team fight, what could we have done better, etc. They do not form and test hypotheses that even 3 year old children would do, they just assume things are as they would expect and just act as what they think is true without bothering to do any tests. For example, everyone thought killing the brain bug in Starship Troopers was a bonus mission, but it wasn't. Then they concluded that there were no bonus missions on starship troopers based only on the fact that killing the brain bug wasn't a bonus mission. How can they be so certain based on such flimsy evidence?

Characters do not act realistically. For example in a lot of movies they did not even consider really simple ideas like in Lord of the Rings they could have asked Gandalf to just ask the eagles to fly them to Mordor. But nope. They didn't even consider these really simple ideas that could have saved them going through a lot of danger compared to going to Morder the long way. They could have told the guards in Resident Evil about the laser defense system so they didn't get cut in half, this wasn't forbidden by God, but instead of that Zheng just says "there's something wrong with this corridor" and gets dragged in with them. Also, when it was obvious that Zheng knew about the laser's scanning patterns but didn't tell the mercenaries about it, instead of getting angry One regards Zheng as his savior. WTF? He should at least have gotten suspicious about how Zheng knew about the laser. And how the fuck did Zheng manage to get 10s of thousands of points under the noses of the other Devil team members, especially when he was only in the first unlocked stage? And why did God match Team China against Team Devil when China practically got wiped in Final Destination and required Jie's sacrifice just to get out the few remaining members out alive?

The way the points are rewarded is really inconsistent as well. Killing a bug using a gauss rifle gives points but using a tactical nuke doesn't? On one occasion Xuan stated that you get points for being clever, well in that case why didn't they get points for killing the pygmies by burning down the entire forest only for killing pygmies by shooting them with a gun, clearly burning down the forest was smarter. Why does it even matter whether you kill monsters by shooting them with a gun or by burning them anyway? It shouldn't make any difference.

I hate how the author just makes shit up, even in-universe. What the fuck is a "creeper" (original text 爬行者) supposed to be in Resident Evil, there are only lickers how did he translate that into creeper, what the fuck. When he mentioned "艾罗格斯金属" I Googled it and nothing came up. Who the fuck knows what it's supposed to be. From the description it sounds like something he just made up - I couldn't find anything in the original LoTR that corresponds to the description. I can understand making monsters stronger than usual or changing a few plot events, but treating completely new minerals that he just made up as if it's something that was in the original story is just wtf.

4 stars for the solid first half of the story, it was fun while it lasted.

I’m sure you’ve all seen movies of which the world the movie was in gave you the feeling of “I sure wish I could live in that type of world”.

Well,

This is a horror series relying on movies as a big part of the content. Specifically movies with horror or thriller elements. The type of movie world you don’t actually want to live in.

Basically it’s an enjoyable thriller series with all the horror elements you could possibly imagine. Or rather, all the elements that could’ve been in all those movies (and... more>> more).

There’s actually quite a bit of worldbuilding over the course of the novel, but instead of that slowing down the story, the action inside the story is usually fast paced and it only slows down inbetween movies. Which will actually give you the feeling of a breather, which you and the characters in the novel need. Trust me.

What happens when you’re dropped in a ‘horror’ movie world?

Well … you try anything and everything to try to survive it. Not all of the movies are typical ‘horror’ movies, but they do share elements which could be horrifying if you were in that movie.

Spoiler

The main trick is that once you survive the movies, you gain points which you can use to upgrade your body and mind. Think of stuff like vampire bloodline, Qi, magic, mental powers.

[collapse]
These are the type of movies that are being covered so far. (not adding sequels)

Spoiler

Resident Evil, Alien, The Grudge, The Mummy, Final Destination, Jurassic Park

[collapse]
And my main advise is. Read the parts per volume. It’s much better for your heart and more relaxing for the mind. (so you might want to wait for a volume to be finished before advancing)

Each volume will 'usually' cover a movie and the aftermath.

We’re currently (as of this review) upto Volume 12, so you’ve got some reading to do! <<less

Currently reading multiple other stories, and a lot of them. Once I decided to check this out and try it, all others were put on hold. Binge read all chapters currently out and depressed that there isn't more to read. If you like most of the tags, then this book will be amazing as it takes them and puts you on the edge of your seat with each adventure.

Easily one of my favorite series I've read in a while. If you've ever enjoyed the premise of Gantz you'll love this one. The initial premise of "going into horror movies" kinda threw me initially, making me think "can the author really not come up with his own material?" But as you get into it, it makes for a really interesting read especially if you're familiar with the movies some of their missions take place in.

Where this series really shines is in some of the intellectual battles that take place... more>> between the respective team leaders and their counterparts. This is probably one of my favorite aspects of this series, is how some of the characters use their knowledge of the movies to hypothesize ways to exploit the plot to their advantage. It's done really well and lets the reader think about some movies in ways they never would have thought about them before.

This coupled with the absolutely fantastic upgrade/loot system makes for a really exciting read. Really looking forward to future updates. a0123 does a fantastic job with the translation. Definitely a highly recommended series, one of the most interesting I've read in a long time.

If you're getting sick of the same old xianxia, inner qi cultivation, sect story line this is a nice breath of fresh air. There's not very much in the way of good sci-fi, alternate stories out there being translated so this makes for a good one. <<less

I'm actually sorta torn on this story. One the one hand, it's leaps and bounds more original than most of the stories listed of novelupdates, on the other hand, if i compare it to a normal, properly edited story, it just barely rises to above trashcan level.

there are several areas where it really suffers:

the mish-mash of real poorly-understood-by-the-author science, fantasy pseudoscience, lots of factual misconceptions acquired from 'folk knowledge', and just general nonsense that the author mixes together to create his universe.

the story also starts out as if... more>> the people brought to the horror show belong to the 'real' universe that readers inhabit, which is good, but then the author completely deviates and just goes off the rails in his vision about how humans really evolve.

the characters have a plethora of powers, abilities, bloodlines, weapons, etc to choose from and yet, so far at least, the choices are fairly lackluster and dull, compared to the fun they could actually have with them if just a little bit more creativity was used.

sexism. it's not as bad some stories listed here, but it's certainly fairly obvious. it seems that pretty much every Chinese story of this genre listed on this site is just rife with it. it's getting kinda concerning with just how pervasive it seems to be.

survival of the fittest BS. i'm getting a little tired of seeing this excuse used to be unnecessarily cruel and/or ruthless to others. it's not so bad in this story, at least at first, but it's starting to crop up more and more it seems.

i could go on but ...

anyway, i do enjoy the different powers and universes that are visited but that's honestly more of a pro for the original creators of those verses. still, this story is at least fairly entertaining at first. as it goes on, the author starts to run into several problems as to where he wants to take the story.

and of course, kudos to the translators. <<less

I have to say that I loved Terror Infinity in the beginning a great deal... but recently that love and anticipation for the next chapter vanished. Many other reviewers pretty much say why TI fell from its initial amazing beginning, for me it was everything after volume 14, but how I would best sum it up is this. I don't envy Team China anymore.

I always imagined myself entering God's Dimensions, going into movie worlds, getting enhancements, growing stronger and evolving right along with them, but that is no longer the... more>> case. The fun, excitement, and longing I had to imagine myself as a player like Zheng is gone. The spirit of actually getting super powers and gear from fictions is gone in recent volumes and I blame the author. He had a novel with more potential than any other I've ever seen, and he settled for... what it is today.

Its a shame. <<less

I agree with korendir, this is a better version of Gantz but don’t think of it as a copy. I really like the western style of writing, it’s way more realistic than dumb and ruthless characters of xianxia and not at all like whimpy Japanese characters with faulty logics and over-exagerated morals. Still it has some plot holes like taking no lamps into dark places, value of gold/diamonds and not ideal pick of abilities but that’s minor stuff, I gave it 5/5 in order to support the rating but comparing... more>> to the other stuff earlier I gave 5 this really deserves it.

Edit: I was so hyped back then coz this started a new genre and was hence original, it was pretty damn good up to volume 10 and then drop by drop chapters ruined it for me, also seeing how the MC is stupid didn't help either so I'll try to be fair and reduce it from 5 stars to 3 <<less

This novel catapulted to the top (and I mean Number 1) of my reading list.

I spent two days reading it straight destroying my productivity at work. I used to read xianxia style novels (ISSTH,ATG, TDG, etc) and this isn’t like one. But one can imagine just how great this novel is as it easily defeats everybody’s favorite ISSTH.

Though this may not be everyones favorite due to it being a horror genre, it will surely keep you entertained and wanting for more.

I agree with Korendir in saying its like Gantz... more>> but way better. Way better because this story shows how the MC evolves. Story wise, its easier to understand, simpler to appreciate and unlike Gantz with sooooooooo many plot holes, (seriously. I couldn’t sleep right after having read through and completed the manga due to the many plot holes, left out elements, and forgotten characters) this novel considers all elements, and even has a lot of room for your imagination to go wild. Read this freaking novel. I beg you!

Also, as far as the story goes, (right now I’m at Vampiric Mask saga) i suggest watching the mummy and the mummy returns as a major essential part of the story takes place there and it would be good to have seen resedent evil and apocalypse. As for the rest of the movies, getting the overview is already enough.

anyways, 5/5 for me! <<less

Terror Infinity has well realized characters with their own distinct voices, motivations, and character growth. It also has some of most tense and thrilling battles I've ever read in a CN. It's especially nice if you've already seen the movies the characters a fighting in. Though that isn't completely necessary since the author does a good job of filling in details of the plot. A great thing about the premise of the story is that dangers scale to the strength of the characters. If they're having... more>> to easy of a time something will change to put them under more stress.

The danger rises, so the characters never really become OP. It makes for a fascinating read. I highly recommend it. Just finished rereading this series for the second time. Very enjoyable and well worth reread. <<less

Very well done! I basically binge read this in two sittings, can't put it down. There just seems to be endless possibilities for this novel, since it can draw on any movie for inspiration for its worlds.

Spoiler

Actually, at some point, the author merged the environment and characters of The Mummy with storyline from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, showing that even anime can be used as an inspiration. It also really cracked me up when they gave one of the newbies whose only talent was for piloting an "anime bear mecha" (which I imagine is Beargguy http://i.imgur.com/7IElF4s.jpg ) which tho cute was equipped with Gundarium alloy making it hella tough.

Highly recommended, especially if you're tired of the usual xianxia / xuanhua <<less

The most interesting novel I've read as of late. Even though it's similar to Gantz, it still gives off a fresh feeling. It's also one of the few CN novels that has character development.

I like this novel a lot that I've took some time to write a review which I don't usually do.

To be honest, I picked this up to take just a slight breather from the xanxia novels that I've read, currently reading, and will be reading... I thought the plot was interesting so I decided to start reading volume 1.. ugh, who knew I would read all through volume 4 in one sitting? (I stopped halfway on their grudge movie mission because seriously it was already midnight and I kept imagining that lady and the boy from the grudge..)

The flow of the story is great and it's nice (for the... more>> characters as well as to the readers) to have a little breather after every movie mission. As far as I have read, character growth is good and it was interesting to see how they come to terms with their fear, adapt, and how the MC come to terms of what he thinks is right and what's the best possible approach for his survival and his team's. Overall this is a great read and yep, ISSTH, ATG, TMW and TDG will be put hold until I am done binge reading on this.. <<less

When this novel first came out, I read a couple of chapters and then dropped it. I regret it like hell now.

One of the best stories I've read, both online and published. The characters are well developed and you can relate to the MC. He isn't a stock xianxia sociopath, neither is he a 'I won't kill anyone' type character.

There is a good balance of seriousness and comedy. The MC's plot armor isn't very thick. You can feel that there is a genuine struggle to survive against horrible odds.... more>> He even fails (gasp) every once in a while, and makes bad decisions.

Actions have consequences in this novel, and power comes at a price. It is a refreshing change from perfect OP MCs with good luck falling in their lap. <<less

Read this novel, then read Gantz --> Terror Infinity >>>>>Gantz; no doubt :)
I'll just be simple an say: "this novel is gold, read it, buy it, reread it, and your soul shall be freed! "(just kidding)

I don't think there is any (many) plot hole (I don't see them). I like the plot, and since I read this before reading Gantz, maybe my soul was preserved (because I seriously could not stand the manga) and I enjoyed this novel fully.

I like the MC as much as I like... more>> other characters. I shall even say I like Xuan better then Zheng (the MC). Xuan's story... What can I say, how can one hate such a person after this... How one can blame someone of being heartless when he does not have one. *sigh* ... *sigh*

Spoiler

At the Alien movie, I prefered xuan decision better (even if it failed :P) because it's rational, wise, and I support the idea of vote for any decision, including own sacrifice.

[collapse]

Yep, I'm sick too. Ha Ha.

The autor manage to write a book where smart people is OBVIOUSLY smart (not like some novel where the "average" mc got an miraculous, awesome idea". And that the MC is starting to be smart to. I mean, he still has some improvement to do, but he can do it (not like Xuan, because Xuan is god)!

I love the whole story, not one thing is bad. there is just one thing that bother me, it's that it is supposed to be an horror novel, and except The Grudge, i feel no horror, just a little anxiety and a lot of adrenaline. Yep im definitly Xuan, there is nothing to be scared if it can be scientificaly explained, tested, and mesured. Even the dragon is scary. <<less

Practically stability perfection(i think i found 1 really insignificant contradiction only which is considered really good to me compared to the novels I've read), and since its based on horror movies the author doesn’t need to waste too much time for world building in that stage cos it already has a template and lets the author focus on other stuff and have more free words to write stuff, and i’m not saying it has no world building outside of the so called “templates” instead I would rather say that overall... more>> world building is a strong point of this novel so the overall world building is also part of the “more free words to write stuff” a total win-win situation.

The progression goes at a really nice pace and the conversations between characters has a good flow unlike some other series which doesn’t understand human conversation flow. As for the characters they will only be as smart/creative as the author is and in this aspect the author is pretty much a genius, for example a character with average intelligence(not referring to the stat intelligence) would probably suggest things that normal people like us would suggest when they hear a question they are non specializing in, as for above average intelligence characters like the main char he thinks it through somewhat and would be similar to normal people answering their specialty field, as for the strategist kind of people/geniuses they always think of out of the box kind of stuff that even if we tried to think about it we would probably never think up of it, yup one of the main reasons this novel is good is because of the smarts,creativity and strategies.Also as for the battle system i’d say its a mix of a rank abc kind of system + usage of technology + unknown factors(mostly legit dont worry).

Oh yeah and if we’re talking about how dark it is out of a rating of 10 I’d say 7/10 the dark setting is kinda a big part of it but not the only focus so yeah gd luk n have fun reading <<less

5/5

I'm surprised there isn't that many readers for this novel yet. If you're a fan of American horror movies, likes upgrades, evolving characters read this. This novel reminds me a bit of gantz, but with no retarded psycho kids raping or killing everything they see once they got a taste of power. The characters get sucked up into "gods dimension" as test subjects, here they get points for completing missions in various worlds such as the mummy, grudge, final destination, jo jo bizarre adventure ect.. Get 50k points and you... more>> can choose to leave and go back to your original world with limitless power and wealth.

This novel is about survival and teamwork, and many of the characters are quite likable as you read on.

This novel is about survival and teamwork, really good read and has many interesting arcs. <<less

In a country, where US copyright infringement incurs no legal ramifications, the Infinity Genre exists. This is an ancient and powerful Chinese technique, which borders on fanfiction, in order to pander to people who hadn't actually watched the original movies.

However, as it turns out, I really like this genre roflmao. Anyway, Terror Infinity is the one that started it all. While it may have a whole host of problems, it's still one of my favorites. It's obviously not for everyone. You'll know if you like this kinda story or... more>> not in the first few chapters.

In my opinion, the real story doesn't really start until volume 10ish, while everything before that was more like a prologue :P. <<less
