To be honest, I kind of expect a VRMMO genre because it was recommended by a fellow member but, it came that this was a zombie novel. It's pretty good, though I am not inclined anymore for this kind of plot, anyways, since I started reading it, I hope for a big and unexpected twists as I progress that will give me "WHAT THE F*CK" reaction.

The only reason this has a low rating is because of the qidian hate. The novel is actually pretty great upto where I have read. No recycled crap. No OP MC. The novel is genuinely scary. I recommend you try it even if you are not into horror genre.

I don't understand why the ratings are so low for this. It's rare to find good horror stories in general. Terror Infinity started out pretty good, but loss all sense of terror after a few volumes and became some ridiculous action story.

5 stars if you enjoy horror, otherwise 4 stars. Ignore the ridiculous number of 1 star votes. I don't think these people even read more than one chapter.

A really nice novel with murder and mystery, along with elements of the supernatural. The MC is kinda a psycho though (scratch that, he IS), and he's aware of it. Since he's used to killing, that helps him with what's happening.

Anyways, I really like the concept.


The Dreadful Radio is basically like forcing the people involved into a horror story.


And I like how it hints at something greater. There's some serious stuff going on here, and as for now, we're only getting glimpses, but it looks promising!

If you enjoy horror webnovel like Apartment from hell, Dreadful radio game might intrigue you too. This also reminded me of that as the MC must persevere through a number of great predicament for his survival's sake over these supernatural events, except that was all about an apartment and this is all about the mysterious radio segment, also the MC in here is a psychotic person who's addicted to murder, so I think he will put a fight in every scenario he needed to. There's 10 chapters currently, I'll see... more>> how the story shall progress for now. <<less

A biased and disorganized review, with a bit of spoiler.

A short synopsis of the novel (since the description always seems to be vague as hell) :

Dreadful Radio Game is an interesting novel that revolves around the concept of a survival game ("A powerful entity forces the main characters to fight for their lives in an organized competition") with some mystery and supernatural elements mixed in. Our MC Su Bai is somewhat like Dexter Morgan from Dexter, in the sense that he's a psychopath that constantly has the urge to kill people; instead of randomly killing people, he focuses his urges on to people that have committed some sort of a crime (regardless of whether or not their crimes are worthy of the death penalty). After killing one of his targets one day, he gets drawn into a survival game known as the Dreadful Radio Game (the real world is like a hub, and he gets drawn into instances in order to complete certain tasks to earn points and power up). The instances, seem to be based on mysterious/supernatural events/crimes that occur in the MC's hub world. The novel sets up some sort of an unsolved mystery/crime (that happened in the past, whether it be distant or recent), and sends the participant of the game in to complete certain objectives. The participants in the game pretty all seem to be out of the norm, and wouldn't be someone modern society would consider as being "normal" (our MC is a psychopathic killer, and there's this guy around chapter 50 that claims to be a teacher and gets aroused by f**king other people's wives).
What I really like about this novel is that, it manages to convey a certain feeling of dread and chilliness (as opposed to many novels with the Horror genre) ; it could be due to the fact that the MC is still relatively weak at the moment, but I really do hope it maintains this atmosphere.

The main complaint I have so far about the novel is the translation/writing style (or maybe a combination of both). There's just something about the english translation that makes it a bit awkward to read (it just doesn't feel smooth).

  1. Trying to enjoy this... The novel seems really interesting and has a gantz feel to it, but there is a problem that I just get past, that's making it so hard not to drop at this point.
  2. The MC is portrayed as smart but Is definitely not. He is a psycho murderer but has 4 people who knows of his murders and just doesn't care. So obviously doesn't care about being caught.
  3. He is involved in a death game type scenario and know literally no rules. NONE. Has a person who saves him who obviously know the don rules and proceeds to ask no questions and continues on like a blind idiot. It's like wtf. There's not even an explanation as to why he ask no questions. It really zapped all of my enthusiasm for this novel.

A Chinese horror story with its own personality. This novel is quite unique. The entire world building, the role of the radio, and the twisted world that it encompasses leaves a shuddering impression of impressive mystery. There is no normalcy in this world, only legitimate fears, around every corner, under the bed, and in the slight crack in the wall. Everything poses a threat. In this world arrives, a relatively powerless, yet mentally suitable protagonist. With his mindset, this world seems to be almost designed for him. What do I... more>> mean by his mindset? Let's Just say that our lovely protagonist titters on the brink of becoming a serial killer. Wait, he already is one!

Why rate three stars? Too early to Judge, but if this marvel continues, it's definitely five stars. <<less

This novel is really underrated.

Up until now (c154), I find this novel really interesting. World building is good and so character building.

MC is not some typical MCs, but a psychopath who enjoyed killing people. At the start, he's a person who struggles surviving the game while competing with other audience for benifits. But after c130+, his traits as a psycho who does what he wants starts appearing, but not in a bad way.

... more>> MC is a calm and calculating person, and somewhat similar to leylin.

Side characters are also interesting, they're not some cardboard cut-out. They acts like a person.

Side characters are not disposed, they appears at some points.

What I really love about this novel is the MC. <<less

Story in itself is perfect, great character building, kinda reminds me, and is a better version of Terror Infinity?... Nah, thats just my subjective bias, never liked Terror Infinity. MC that actually feels like a "human", not a robot programed to fit the story. No major plot holes. Though we don't have an actual goal yet, just surviving takes a lot and gives you quite the thrill. Anyway, the only problem is the slightly jumbled release speed. No offense, but, if you can't keep up, just slow down, whats the... more>> point of releasing a bunch in a week, and then a month nothing? Keep it steady, at least. <<less

Awesome story with an incredible word building and a horror theme that manages to make you feel at least a shiver while reading it... at least this is what I believe the author intended to create when he started writing his story. Why do I say I just believe it is so? Because the translation is f**king butchered. This f**king retarded company, Qidian, doesn't have quality control and just ejects new chapters at a fast speed not caring if the western readers can understand anything. At first I somehow went... more>> past these problems, yet after the second even the translation feels even worse. If they don't hire an editor for this story then I will leave it in my dropped folder forever. It is unreadable as long as you understand English better than a preschool kid. The story with its potential still slightly unrevealed gets 4 stars, while the translation gets 0.5, as it barely holds together. <<less

What if a young college student murdered 7 people and is a psychopath? Those people did bad things but by law they didn't deserve to die. What happens when you have to survive in a horrific game with other participants who are not quite the normal humans, and they have powers beyond logic and science? You are transported into a story world, the 'creator' of DG gives tasks to complete in exchange for points to redeem awesome powers, tools and body enhancements. But the world is not nice and so... more>> is the game, it loves to screw with the participants, not giving out the task at the start and going blind until someone activates the task, failure to complete and it's your end forever, and to top it all off you are free to kill other participants without consequences in the story world. So what's gonna happen to our smart MC whose body can't be enhanced through conventional ways like buying upgrades from the game shop, then how is he supposed to survive against the natives of the story world and the other participants? Only way to find out is star reading the story. <<less
