The Great Thief


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

He had never invested in shares or bought a lottery ticket, and neither did he have any experience in the general business industry. Lu Li found that the only thing he could do was play games.

Luckily he had experienced rebirth, and was one step ahead of everyone else. Luckily, games had been developing extremely quickly, and there were many people who had become rich through playing games.

In his ‘past life’, he had spent countless nights awake, in grief and anguish. However, although all of this had been washed away, so what…? This life, he was determined to make a fierce counterattack against fate and stand at the very top!

This review is coming from someone who is heavily biased towards anything LitRPG. Anything Litrpg automatically gets +1 star from me.

This novel is pretty damn terrible. Copying WoW's system and changing a few things here and there is a pretty good idea. However, this author decides to copy way more than that. Every single dungeon is copied from WoW, all the bosses have the same mechanics and skills. The story ends up becoming more like someone's edited WoW diary. This author is one of the most uninspired writers I've... more>> ever seen. You'd have more fun playing WoW instead of reading this.

The characters are one dimensional and get almost no development. This usually isn't too much of a problem in LitRPG's where the focus is on the game elements. However, the game elements are complete shit and the characters are completely boring.

The story is basically a XianXia with twists you see coming from a mile away, arrogant young masters who pick fights for the most retarded reasons, never-ending revenge chains, countless beauties who serve no purpose in the story and a main character who is nothing more than a plot puppet.

As crappy as Rebirth of the Thief and Zhan Long are, at least their game mechanics were more interesting.

TLDR: Even if you have time to waste, go waste it elsewhere. <<less

It's your typical vrmmorpg novel so far:

1. MC is poor
2. has a family member who's sick
3. rebirth advantages
4. Was able to get some sort of upgradeable artifact early in the game (because of no.3) which will probably be overpowered in the future.
5. Entitled rich kids who's out to get him.

With regards to the story of the game, it borrows heavily on the lore of the World of Warcraft franchise. I'm not sure about everything mentioned so far, but the artifact I mentioned on no.4 was made... more>> by Cenarius. Malfurion, Illidan, Ysera, and some other stuff were mentioned as well. I'm not really an expert on warcraft lore, so I'm not so sure if some other things he mentioned were from warcraft as well, some other game, or his original concept. Some people may not be bothered by this but I prefer things that are original.

With regards to the the game mechanics, it's like a modified version of WOW.

That's pretty much it I guess. It's an ok vrmmorpg novel. Nothing really new so far that breaks the typical vrmmorpg trend but it's an ok read. <<less

So currently there's 18 chapters that's been release and i can say that it isn't bad. The story is another Rebirth VRMMORPG type of novel however it's definitely more polish compare to others in this category. The story is simple as it gets, Someone who started the game after a year of its release however due to misfortune and betrayal, he lost his stable life and it got progressively worst when his younger sister was ill. So he travel back into time so that he can saved his sister, and... more>> also he hates union cause their assholes that's all you need to know.

So first i will definitely have to say something about the translation, Felt smooth and it felt like there wasn't any real inconsistency, only rare minor typos if you were really trying to search for them.

Second, the main character even when he got the knowledge of his past life, it doesn't feel like his overpower at all even though his called an expert, although that's only being said since it's was like two days since release. He switched into another class, his skills aren't overpowering, and when he actually started to play the game before the rebirth, there has been a lot of updates to the game so that means that even though he know the method of something, the results are different so it doesn't give as much benefits as when he does it. Overall, it gives you the impression that what he does can be consider impressive however isn't overbearing powerful to the point where he can solo a boss, fight a group of people by himself or go beating experts left and right. (At least not yet)

Third, the overall Virtual reality MMORPG isn't bad although i don't play much MMORPG so i can't really comment about this but it seems simple and straightforward.

Can't really say much about the novel just yet since there's barely any release as only when around fifty chapters could you truly see if you wanna continue reading it or not and it's potential. Although i have to say that the main character isn't cruel however also isn't idiotically kind, simply level headed. He needs money for his younger sister future, so he won't get involved in things that aren't unnecessary. To maintain that quo, although his giving some good equipment to the other Union so, he could have a better relationship and have a stronger team for future raids as the Union his in right now is only necessary to play the game. Yeah so it's a pretty good casual read if anyone is interested. <<less

As of now, it has a Taming Master vibes of it or somewhere between Ark and Shura's Wrath and Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed the World.

Story focuses mainly on the MC for now. There too few chapters to tell whether this shines or goes deeper into the rabbit hole.

Will change the review until Chapters reached 100.

A Classic VRMMORPG novel. There's a rush in introducing some of the characters in the first few chapters but I think this is better than Rebirth of the Thief who roamed the world.

The levelup of the character makes sense. Equipments are upgradeable. There are no special classes. Records in dungeons.

This is a Slice of Life genre then the progress of the character is just right for every chapter.

Entertaining. About what you expect from a VRMMORPG novel. Not unique in the genre, but a good, classic example of this type of story.

EDIT 3/23/17: no change in stars, still 4 stars. I am starting to get annoyed though. It feels like tons of characters are being introduced, but among each group of say 10 or 20 characters, only 1 matters. Same with unions. Also, the whole idea of unions annoys me, it should be guilds. A lot of the terminology doesn't make... more>> sense. I think that this is probably a good novel to binge, but reading it day to day is killing me. <<less
