Read it up till chapter 315.
You are not reading the story of a hero, but that of a villain.
The MC is a opportunist through and through. He always makes the choice that gives him the biggest advantage.

Another terrifying point of him is, that he can lie with a straight face. Not only does he create a lie, he is living it to the end flawlessly.

A plus point for the plot is that the author slowly explores the different power systems. Magic vs Cultivation types.
At least it hasn't... more>> happened yet that MC goes somewhere new and picks up the top cultivation method on the side of the road.

The story is definitely inspired by Warlock of the Magus World. At this point in time he comes to a world that is similar to that of WMW. Only that he lands on the Dungeon and Dragons side. <<less

I always don't know how to go about starting a review. Mostly because I am incredibly hard to please and it's most certainly a negative one. I should start by saying that I went into this one with surprisingly high hopes. On webnovel I got to read the first 40 chapters before it actually started translated regularly and the two week wait after those 40 chapters were read was exceptionally excruciating. So the question is then, "Why the sudden change of heart?".

I'll get to that, but first I should explain... more>> the premise so that everyone is on the same page as me. The main character has his 'home' world and he can 'jump into' other worlds. It's not really clear from this chapter number how exactly this happens but from what is stated the main character can pay a certain currency to choose what overall type of world he is 'born' into and various other 'electives' that can be chosen. This is a rudimentary explanation of the novels premise, it's obviously more complex than this but you get the idea. Now, onto the reason you're reading this review still.

The reason why my review is negative instead of positive is because of how lopsided the story is thus far. At this point in time the author has spent much more time world building, character building and plot telling the "fake worlds" the character is visiting and completely neglecting the main characters actual home world. To expound upon this even further, the main character is, in his home world, something like 16-18 years old. A College student with an over protective older sister. Yet in only these early 59 chapters, the main character has lived entire lives in other worlds bringing his mental age well into the 100 year mark if not higher. Even if we completely neglect the maturity that comes from such a large mental age, (which the author completely does by the way, the main character shows zero growth in maturity what so ever) the majority of the time the character has spent in these 'other worlds' has been spent killing, pillaging, and otherwise spilling blood. Granted, for story purposes, this is all fine and good and a certain amount of suspension of belief in required in a novel of this typical genre. All of that being said, the problem here is that the reader becomes attached to characters in the story that for all intents and purposes do not exist whatsoever.

This novel is a novel about other novels. And the characters in those 'other novels' do not exist in the original novel.

What this means is that, Author, if you happen to read this review, you are a cuck. <<less

Like the review from @forevermtl, the character is not much of a hero at heart. Into the worlds he simulate into, there are cases where he acts or "becomes" a hero to the general population. Though he always do what is best for himself and his own wellbeing in the main world.

During the first 100 chapters, slight plot holes are shown in some places, though later on the plot holes are patched up and properly explained.

There are a considerable amount of time skips, such as going through months, 10 years,... more>> or even a century at most so far. A story telling format that explains what has happened during those time skips and how everything turned out.

Summary - spoilers
Spoiler

World 1

Spoiler

The first world he visits is a classic eastern version of the Knights/Magic world, where there are knight and wizard systems in place. Rather than the classic forced to a certain system, the wizards are self learning "scientists" who rely on themselves rather than an entity or structure for their magic. Knights are trained through talent and hard work, in these worlds only talent decides how far you go. The main character frequently revisits this world with different bodies, knight, mortal, and wizard.

[collapse]

World 2

Spoiler

The second world he visits is a Chinese multiverse cultivation world, without the limitations of the heavens. No tribulation or other forces to prevent ascension or leveling up, other than the enviornment lacking spiritual qi and resources. The main character was able to score a good body in one of the runs but unable to really get far down the cultivation chain due to the limiting and dying world he was at.

[collapse]

World (s) 3 +

Spoiler

The third kind of world (s) was the world of gods. The power of faith and the ability to gather godheads through different condensing of laws. A world with gods who have been silent for quite a while, though the followers of all religions run in a feudal society. All of the worlds covered so far are quite big, with no real size given for comparison. In these worlds, the introduction of knights and wizards are also seen, though slightly weaker than the wizarding world. A hint that there was once wars between worlds or another worldly being came and spread the teachings.

[collapse]

The constant simulations can really affect a person, and at the start the main character took note of this and had to often stabalize himself in the main world. Though later as a threat became apparent, he could no longer afford to waste any time.

[collapse]

The author is currently still writing and at 351 chapters at the time of this review. No signs of being dropped as the author is getting a decent fanbase in China. <<less

This author is the king of blue balling.

There are big arcs and small arcs inside each big arc, which are supposed to be the simulations, but it's clear they are true worlds the MC transmigrates to, so the title is dumb.

In each arc the MC begins and ends a new life with new sets of power. For most part the world building and characters are good. There's a little too many time skips and tell don't show but that can't be helped with so many arcs.

The problem lies with the... more>> climax of said arcs. The Author will resolve everything in one paragraph in the most boring way.

"So after leveling up he started reclaiming the continent which was plagued by the demon, killing him after 3 months of fighting." this solved the entire arc where a demon was controlling all sorcerers in a continent.

There are several more likewise.

Imagine that you spent dozens of hours doing quests for and RPG, getting involved with the characters and story, and when it's time for the last battle everything comes to an end with a dark screen and a line "The heroes defeated the last boss with their powerful abilities and the world regained peace. The end." It's this novel.

Plot holes are also abound and the way the Author wrote the end of the first big arc is just dumb and illogical in every way, destroying all hope I had for this novel.

The premise is the template: MC transmigrates to a parallel earth with martial arts, but in this place he's younger and the world is in danger of being destroyed. He gets powers from each transmigration to get stronger and stop the world from being destroyed.

Spoiler

Then the Author finished this main arc telling everyone was already dead and were dreams that were reliving their deaths which was caused by a big hand in the sky.

Then why the hell was this world full of martial arts and demons while the original world had none? Then why spend so much time messing about with martial art college and tournaments? Why create so many plots in this world that won't matter in a few chapters?

It's obvious the author just got fed up with the initial template and decided to bury it all. The characters and progression up to this moment were all thrown out of the window and he starts a new world big arc.

[collapse]

The end of the first Big arc was disgusting, and I couldn't help but be a little annoyed no one mentioned in the reviews. So here's a warning! It's GOT last season levels of bad. <<less

I'm not sure if I like this, it's good in many places, since it has potential, creativity, benefit oriented MC and such.

Sadly, it's dragged down by the fact that the book turns into a bragfest in many parts. Oh, the MC is so cool and fantastic, standing there looking at the air. Many women came to him but he rejected them all, that's how cool he is. His glistening hair hung loose, as many noble ladies kept admiring him.... This sort of description goes on and on for 2-3 chapters... more>> at a time, and it not omly ruins the pacing but also the feel of the novel (the MC is so benefit oriented but the author acts like he's writing a generic xianxia) <<less

Honestly not a bad novel with the premise. Our MC transmigrates with a system, the world he transmigrated is a modern world with a martial arts twist but with the system he is able to 'simulate' (reincarnate temporarily) into other worlds and learn their power systems and bring back certain things he's obtained (eg. Weapons, cultivation, techniques). However there's a twist towards the end of the initial quarter of the story.

... more>>
Spoiler

It turns out the world he transmigrated into is already dead and is just the dream of a dead world and as a result, using the simulator's power he physically sends himself to another world (think the World of Gods from Warlock of the Magus World)

[collapse]

At that point the rate he gains power speeds up - a little too much. It's a common issue in many world-travel novels of universe-scale, power level rises but the corresponding threat still feels the same. Take Top-Tier Providence for example, you don't feel a difference when the MC fights a Nascent Soul cultivator when he was Foundation Building and when he fights a Zenith Heaven as a Deity Realm or when he fights a Great Sage when he's Freedom Sage. Dragon Ball suffers from this issue, and so does this novel towards the end. The youtuber Hello Future Me did a good video on how to handle power escalation (a good resource if you're looking to write your own stories).

But overall, the characters are interesting enough to give attention to, albeit some end up being forgotten, and the MC's adventure is diverse enough to keep you hooked. <<less

The story is interesting, but I don't get why the Author keeps alternating between fast pace and slow pace super randomly. Also can he stop with these cringy descriptions of MC ? Why does the MC need to complimented about how 'Tall' he is (I swear to god it's almost every single chapter, any time the novel transition from any other scene to the MC, it starts with his figure), and about his handsomeness. This extremely redundant and annoying description alone lowers the story 1-2 stars.

LASTLY, WHY DOES HE KEEP LOOKING AT THE SKY AFTER EVERY DAMN THING HE DOES?!?! He finished talking with someone? Starts staring at the sky. Scene transitions to MC? It start with talking about someone tall handsome young starting at the sky. Lol

A pretty decent story among those tr*shes out there.

The stimulated worlds are interesting enough to explore.

The base world later changed as the author realized the MC was too OP for the original world so he had it destroyed in order for MC to travel to another base world.

So... an okay premise that sometimes draws you in more than you think it should.

More accurately, this should be considered an anthology of isekai/tensei stories with a somewhat tenuous linking narrative rather than a complete tale, since the framing story is kinda weak, even after the author's soft-reboot around Chapter 250 or so.

Some of the various "Simulations" are more interesting than others, and it's frighteningly easy to get caught up in the story within. Because some of those sub-stories last for multiple chapters, it becomes harder and harder to become... more>> invested in the framing story.

And to those people sperging over the MC's moral character or lack thereof, keep in mind the audience that this webnovel is targeting. As I have fruitlessly attempted to remind the pearl-clutching overly-moral foreign fans of various franchises over the years, you and whatever religious or cultural framework you live in are NOT the intended audience.

Therefore the author has NO obligation to fit the story to YOUR world view.

However much a harem story "triggers" you because monogamy for the purpose of reproduction or whatever your holy book has dictated, or some edgelord mu*derfest gives you the sads because gore and effed-up moral compass, the author and the publisher don't care because the property is doing well in its country of origin and any further attention by filthy foreigners is just gravy or pocket change.

That being said, the MC has been designed to appeal to Mainland Chinese readers, and as such, amorality and self-interest to the point of manipulations allowing for mu*der and non-consensual fornicating if it doesn't touch the MC's bottom line being a driving factor in the MC's actions is considered perfectly acceptable and even admirable from the standpoint of a Mainlander reader.

Because yes, to a Mainlander, the MC IS A HERO, and someone to aspire to, despite displaying what other peoples or cultures may consider morally gray if not outright villainous behavior.

So maybe treat it as a teachable moment or insight into the mentality and (a) morality of the intended audience (Mainlanders), however disturbing it may be to you and your own ethical framework. And if it's too much, maybe walk away rather than give it any more of your attention.

tl;dr: Overall middling story with some good and interesting bits, if you're able divorce yourself from the MC's more questionable decisions and actions, or rather, look at them objectively as an insight into the twisted psyche of the Mainlander audience for whom the author wrote this story.

Also tl;dr: better sub-stories/"simulations" - 3.0 to 3.5 stars. Earlier modern day kung-fu framing story AND THEN JOHN WAS A ZOMBIE - maybe 2.5 stars before it went to pot. "New" WORLD OF TEH GODZ framing story, NOW WITH MULTIPLE PERSONALITY DISORDER, er, I mean, CLONES - 2.0 stars, but mostly because tl;dr. <<less

Spoiler

this is probably the authors first novel and it shows

lots of inconsistencies, for instance they keep referencing all this stuff from the first "Simulation" that the author never told us about, alot of which he switches up whenever its convenient

"MC always ran away when a True Knight was around"

"MC once sparred with a True Knight before"

"MC once killed a True Knight, but that was with alot of people otherwise he wouldn't of been able to"

The MC doesn't seemed fazed at spending decades in these worlds at all, These "Simulations" are not games with graphics worse than reality, they are straight up worlds to the MC because he is too weak to notice there is a difference or they are just other worlds

im not that far in the novel, so I cant tell if the MC can tell the difference in later chapters (i was wrong SPOILER they are other worlds)

he also just seems to hops back into normal world with a perfect memory of what he was just doing right before he left and acts like nothing ever happened

[collapse]

spoiler for length not spoilers

long story short

TDLR - These "Simulations" basically mean nothing, they a just long filler that give the MC an excuse to have op skills

--- --- --- --- ---

alright, so...

as someone who read webnovels, I dont have a life and was bored, so I skimmed my discard pile of novels and decided to read it again

i got to the part that all these spoilers are about, chapter 250~ish

and I have to say unlike what the person above me at the moment is saying, I loved it, dont care if it was a whim because the author got stuck and didn't know how to continue his main worlds life, it was amazing

anyway my initial review still stands

and according to other reviews this is the part of the novel where it goes to shit, so keeping my 3 stars

Update - yeah shit, ever read the last 400 chapters of Warlock of the Magus World? thats sh*t right? well it was to me, I hate power systems where its not really the MCs power, as in all of his power for the foreseeable future is Faith based, ya know Gods faith Holy Healing shit, hate it

thats what also went wrong with Warlock of the Magus World, besides the rushed ending the World of the Gods 400 Chapter ARC was complete shit, basically everything changes from Actual Power to -Beta Male Japanese Friendship and love- belief power

not saying the MC is a beta cuck, just his power is

There are things that are interesting about this, but I just find the MC to be really distasteful. It's not that I am against a MC who is ambitious, manipulative, and only caring about benefits. Or even a MC who is basically a sociopath. But this MC is so unaffected by emotion that I find it hard to be invested in him. Like, he seems to care so little about anything that I don't care either.

The disconnect between his superb acting and his lack of actual emotion is kind of... more>> jarring. He spends entire lifetimes in simulations (including marriage and kids), and yet is able to seamlessly slip back into the role of a high school student. (Also, the fact that this is his second life seems kind of pointless. How did he die (?) in his first life? Does he have any unresolved regrets? Why does he not seem to have any trouble now existing in a cultivation world?)

Also, it's kind of annoying how there is so much more investment/character development/world building in the simulated/other worlds, yet when he goes back to his own world, everything just falls kind of flat. Honestly, his so called "real" world feels like more of a simulation than the simulated worlds (and he acts just as fake there too).

Perhaps I am being too picky about the MC. It's not like I read these stories for logic and realism. But at the end of the day, I just found his personality and actions to be uncomfortable and it made the story hard for me to enjoy. <<less

It was interesting at start but has gone downhill from the moment he entered 'world of gods' as its just not too interesting to read for many reasons like all new world he visits are totally boring and also don't really add much to the story, you can just skip and you won't notice and difference. Another factor is writing has downgraded an level. It's kind of expected when reading on MTL but I think problem is with the source material itself as I have read my share of MTLs... more>> and also the fact you see the quality of the writing declining as the novel progresse <<less

story starts out pretty decent and then kinda goes downhill for me after the transition. I enjoyed the exploration of the first three worlds but ... more>>
Spoiler

once it transitions from exploring magic/ cultivation/ martial arts to faith, it gets messy. There are clones all over the place, including the first with the acquired elf blood, which I wonder if the author has forgotten since it was never mentioned again, even in passing. Honestly I find the faith system far less interesting than the first three

[collapse]

everything comes easily to this very handsome and tall MC so don't expect anything like the pretense of struggling. This is a very morally gray main character where everything is fine in pursuit of his own power, which might trigger some readers.
Spoiler

i wasn't too impressed when he basically became a s*ave trader in one of his lives.

This is a bad novel for me.

I hate when things happen and then something happens to make the happened things not happened or loose all their meaning.

This book does something similar. The MC is able to enter a simulation, live there and do quests to gain power. After he leaves the simulation he can bring some of those powers back with him.
Spoiler

The author took his time writing about those simulations. Even shortest ones go on for several chapters. The MC lives in there. He experiences things, meets people and interacts with them. And after reading and getting invested in the story, the simulation ends and it's like it never happened. It felt like I read all those adventures in vain.

[collapse]

not my cup of tea. Dropped.

Finally, a pretty solid work from Qidian! The translation is very readable, besides some slight confusion between names of the MC's avatars in a few chapters—honestly understandable though, given how many identities this man has. The unlimited flow theme of this story is quite satisfying, and the MC is able to grow exponentially more OP as he unearths more uses for the simulator. Appreciated the diversity in each world and the MC's personality in being cautious and steady whenever he acted. Ending was very open ended with entire arcs of... more>> material left in the new universe. The extras going back to the older worlds was unexpected but quite satisfying, though I think it would have given more closure with like 1 more chapter. Ending it just like that was a little abrupt. <<less

Fantastic serial transmigration novel, heavily inspired by Warlock of the Magus World (WMW).

Short Summary, The MC has a system which allows him to transmigrate into different worlds and live out entire lifetimes. The greater an impact he has on these worlds, the more points he earns. These points in turn allow him to travel to new worlds, unlock better starting characters, and increase his own personal power.

The MC is well written, he is an incredible pragmatist with no fixed morals or beliefs. He will just do whatever benefits him the... more>> most. I wouldn't say he is a villain, as he generally makes morally righteous choices, but that's only because by RPing as the 'Good Guy' he is able to build factions easier, which enables him to have greater impact on the world and thus earn more points.

There is a dramatic change to the novel around chapters 256 - 260. The Author abruptly ends the Frame Story, nerfs the powers of the system and does a soft reboot of the entire novel. I can totally understand why the Author did this, as the Frame Story was pretty weak and not enjoyable to read. But the abrupt nature of the shift results in the novel feeling a bit disjointed, it takes about another 20 chapters for it to start flowing smoothly again.

My personal Opinion. I think the Author overcorrected. The main appeal of this novel was that it was essentially a anthology of condensed webnovel stories (Think 1001 Nights). His overcorrection shifts the balance, with more time spent in the 'Real World' and less time spent in the 'Simulated Worlds'. But I am still sticking with the novel in hopes that it improves.

Overall I highly Recommend. <<less

Time sure flies. Back then, we had about 200 chapters translated, so I continued to read RAW up to about ~560 chapter where the author was at, I remember it felt a bit fillerish.
Last week nostalgia hit and after I read the whole "I Hijacked a Timeline" (a great novel), browsed some of the older novels and noticed this one is completed. Decided to eat it up. Albeit I consider it a bit worse than the other one, it was a nice read to me: the ending was also... more>> decent, quite left open, which I enjoyed. This novel has some parts that are worth it. The one I engraved in my memory and will associate with the title are the scenes related to the alternative martial world and the process that was unveiled before reader, be it early on which was quite sad or in the last chapters of the novel where we got some additional explanations.

As for one of the other comments, the author did not forget about
Spoiler

his clone, it was just not necessary to mention many things and he included these in the last chapters.

[collapse]

The novel surely could have been better if e.g. Author expanded various sub plot lines and side characters as it could be further developed. Then again there are many more novels and there's no need to regret it, things come and go, this novel brought us something interesting to read. <<less
