At first, I wasn't too impressed by this, but then, I read the Chinese raw and I was throughly hooked on to this

It takes a long time to get the ball rolling (2nd dungeon is like chapter 100+) but it’s worth it.

Even though it is long, all the fights doesn’t feel forced unlike other ones where random characters just jump in one after Another for no apparent reason. You can see the fights that are going to happen yet you will be surprised almost every time

I admit though... more>> the first dungeon is not that exciting, the others will grab your interest. Also it’s one of the rare wuxia where the MC manages to keep his penis in his pants despite having multiple chance. Its refreshing <<less

Overall it's a interesting read, however it feels unpolished at times as there are a lot of small kinks and nuances that the author has not fleshed out too well.

Here's a few issues just to illustrate:
... more>>

1) The people who created/host this 'game' must have an incredibly high level of sophisticated knowledge/technology, however they fail to maintain their core AI and don't even notice that it has rebellious elements?
2) The 'anomaly' factor that the MC has become doesn't seem to be very difficult to reproduce in the first place, which begs the question: why weren't there more of them? Why is the MC the first?


Things I dislike:
- The pet system. Reminds me of Zhan Long's pet system which was somewhat boring and tedious to read about, especially when everyone can have one. Also, MC prefers keeping a weaker pet purely out of sentimentality when in fact his life could be determined by his pet choice... Hmmm idk about that.
-Skills. They're unreadable. MC has to just blindly guess what skills to invest in as the 'system' does not provide any description about their usages. What kind of design is this?
-Mc's skill. MC's skill is one of the worst, most garbage skills that i've ever seen. It's absolute sh*t. Supposedly it's a 'god' ranked skill, yet it's just so distastefully bad that I don't know what else to say.

If not for the above it probably would have been a 4.5/5 for me, but i'll doc a star. <<less

The Gate of Revelation, previously Gate of Apocalypse is one of the few CN novel in NU that does not get the attention it deserves, it is really really underestimated. All in all, GoR can be actually described as a "fun" read, yes, even if it has apocalyptic-game world theme. But it's the slightest bit of " dark ", instead it's very fun and this is very true as more time passes.

To rate this novel as a 4.0.. Is truly an underestimation to the greatness of this novel.

Beware of slight... more>> spoilers below ! Read at risk.

Theme : The theme of the novel is apocalypse in the real world, with game like elements appearing in the world. This, however, only affects certain people and very few people knew about it's existence. The earth they are living in is basically 'invaded' by people from higher realms who calls themselves ' players ' making the original habitants of earth NPCs. The players treat the world as a game and the NPCs fought to exist, they don't just battle in any place though, but instead a dungeon like place where there are mysteries and puzzles they need to overcome to beat the dungeon, so not only brawns but brains too. In addition to that, the dungeons doesn't mean it always has to be something like the original dungeon concept in dungeons & dragons. Anything can be a dungeon! From a secret location, an island, a mausoleum, all the way to an entire city! The scale of the ' dungeon ' is so big I wouldn't be surprised if t the end of the novel the entire Earth would be a dungeon.

Style : Actually, this novel practically improves at every part from style to story as the story goes on, so at the early phase you might not agree with me at all if I say that I like the author's style.

Also, it does not use the leveling system that game like world usually uses, there are distinctions, like A rated, B rated, etc. But the author doesn't focus on that at all so there is not much complications stats and all those things, in fact the battle scenes are not a strong point of this novel, it's strong points lies in it's mysteries, real-world knowledge use, fun read and excitement.

The translator is Podao and he translates 7 FREE Chapters a week at the time I am reading, so no need to worry about quality and speed either.

Story : The pace of the story is just right to me, not too fast nor too slow. It has it's own one-off jokes and when it does, it is very funny.

At first, the story picks up very slowly.

The mysteries and puzzles of the dungeons are very entertaining and it adds a premise to the story, if I were to say one of the things the novel is lacking, it's in it's battle scenes, because I myself does not feel too into it when the battle scenes occur, and compared to some other Master-class battle scenes writer, GoR's battle scenes indeed fell short, there is a bit of improvement after 150 chapters or so though.

As time pass, the story will reveal more and more secrets about the world they are living in, and the mysteries that it will reveal gave me chills everytime I read it, it is one of the best aspects I loved about GOR. This however, does not appear in the beginning chapters so to fellow readers out there, I beg you to stay with it for awhile before deciding to drop it because it gets more and more interesting as time goes on, especially when it reaches the 70s or something chapter, it only gets better and better.

Another aspect that this novel is falling short of is that the author doesn't really put too much attention for some small details, he is much more focused on the " bigger picture " of the novel, but this, also improves as time pass.

Tldr; Basically, Gate of Revelation is NOT a perfect novel, it has it's own perks and faults but the faults are few to mention (things like small plot holes in the system, C.X's unwillingness to remove garfield & his reasons, etc) and as time passes, GOR has evolved as a novel in the entirety and it tops my list as one of the best of NU. I can even say that this is my favorite Apocalypse novel. If you are willing to be a bit patient and is willing to ignore some small aspects, then you are up for an exciting, great read in a fresh take to the apocalypse genre.

Go try it out ! 9.0/10 <<less

Temporary stop at ch.80. (Current Tl'ed at 95). As raw is ongoing, the 80th of 450 chapters is almost nothing.

Good plot with NEW idea, good dialogue, good fighting scene. Good Translation. No nonsense characters, No boring copied idea/copy (as in all those generic xianxia).

Worth reading (though I stop, waiting for more chapters).

I think that this novel is underrated, here's why:

*Characters have more depth than your average Xuanhuan or Xianxia.
*Plot is original, not your standard xianxia rehash
*Modern day is a plus because most novels here are historical or pure fantasy
*Villains aren't generic evil dudes. They all have their reasons and motivations to act like they do which are believable.
*Party/guild management - not many novels has this or not as well done as here.
*Superb translation

Now there are several problems with this novel. Here are some of them:

... more>>

*Skill system is not that interesting
*Pet system is not great either
*The little girl could be written better, it's hard to like her at this point because she turns sociopathic whenever danger strikes.
*Some aspects require a serious suspension of disbelief like the girl's split personality.
*Novel lacks downtime, sh*t's happening all the time and it's difficult to binge read it.


But even with the problems it has the rating should be higher. <<less

At first, it was totally different from the sypnosis. I was like huh? Did I read the right novel? Plane crash you say? Is this cage of eden?

The story doesnt start until like ch 50. That is when I liked reading it.

Never thought it would be so interesting.

Characters have life in them. Dungeons are different each time. It is not the best story out there but I can say that you wont get bored with this one because it is not repeatative and it gives a new perspective... more>> of the tropes. It's a mixture of VR, isekai, 4th wall stories.

One of the novels I read everytime there is an update. <<less

To all fellow readers,

For unknown reasons this novel is underrated. So, if you want to check whether this novel is worth reading please read the novel by yourself.

Up to my understanding this novel got Matrix movie vibe. I recommend you to give it a try.

I went into this novel because of the cool new concept the story was based on and the fantasy/action/romance genre.

After 150 chapters (i forget when) ... more>>

The Macs girl friend gets kidknapped by her father for 250 mother f**king chapters. This was the most annoying mother f**king thing in the world to me. Once the gf was kidknapped the story went from amazing to absolute crap. It takes 200 chapters for the girl to even be mentioned and they still haven't met up. You can't have a romance and than take it away for the majority of the crappy story you are writing.


The plot became ridiculously boring and just completely made me lose my interest. It became the same fantasy action novel as everything else. Well this author is just as terrible as most writers out there who just can't write a novel that keeps you interested. Yes I'm bias because I want a good fantasy/action/romance novel but is it really that hard to write one? Why do you have a romance and than once everything starts getting good you write off the girlfriend for over 200 chapters. I caught up to the current translations.




Don't read this. I mean if you don't care about romance than read this I goes but tbh its actually boring af and I don't understand how other people actually like this. <<less

it's an okay story so far. One thing it has in it's favor is that the characters feel a little bit more real than most of the other stories listed on NU. Thankfully, the needless ruthlessness, cruelty, and s*xism that so permeates Xuanhuan web novels is absent for the most part.

The bad: a lot of missing detail and description about the mechanics of the world. Nothing in depth at all. The system is barely explored, so far. The background history/mythology that the MC just happens to know is pretty... more>> unbelievable and a lot of it is badly explained, if it is at all. Bloody boring repetitions. Everything seems to be repeated. Sigh.

Overall, it's an okay read for what it is, one just has to remember it is a translated chinese web novel, and not to expect too much. <<less

In order to ensure your readers actually continue to read your novel, you have to have an attention gathering beginning. This novel only had what seemed to be a bad opening to a cheesy survival show with game elements. Also, the fourth wall breaks in conversations during this part only helped to disconnect the reader from the story.

The writing style of the author is that of injecting comedic elements into serious situations, which personally infuriates me. Using stupid phrases like "**** your mother".

All of the above has left a very... more>> bad first impression of this novel on me.

I most likely will not come back to this novel either because I am not going to force myself to read the author's bad writing style just because some reviews say that "this novel is underrated" and "it gets better later on". <<less

Fun once you get to the explanations of what the heck is happening. That takes a little while so I imagine a lot of readers will quit early on. I had to put it down and come back to it like 3 times before I finally managed to get to the explanations. Then I enjoyed it. Consistent translations, and since it's on WuxiaWorld, if it ever gets dropped one of their translators can pick it up like what happened with The Great Ruler.

This is something similar to both Matrix and Terror Infinity. While MC is weak and softhearted for now, he will get stronger and more ruthless with more experience (this is how it usually happens in such novels). Pacing is not fast but not unbearably slow either...I really like it and it s quit addictive.

The author try to be original with concept of anti-player, awakened. However his explication is sometimes not really credible or hard to accept.
... more>>

soso is logically the same as the MC : an irregular. But the author said 'she has forgotten her memory of the dungeon due to dual-personality !' The second personality is cold and determined Or in the first dungeon she didn't seem cold and determined. On the other hand, Han Li is an awakened but he's also have no memories of the dungeon until he's KO. I find it strange : after exiting a dungeon the awakened don't have memories of the dungeon


It's very interesting the way the MC thought to solve puzzle in the dungeons. It's more fun after around 60 chapters, MC found allies. <<less

Mmm.. It an refreshing story. Definitely the first one (for me) that bring an "anti transmigration" genre.

I haven't found any noticeable fault so far, so I give it 5 star. If you like to read story that has a 'game like' feeling, you should try this one.

update: there's one fault I found after 67chs. MC sometimes acts like veteran, cool, calm and smart, but sometimes he acts like a newbie.

Someone kindly recommended this to me and though I don't usually prefer a modern setting, I found myself rather enthralled by this novel and its unique premise. It's not perfect yeah, but I think it's interesting enough to keep me going, and most importantly, speculating.

It starts out kind of slow, admittedly, the first dungeon was a little boring... but that's because we don't really know what exactly is going on. We are kind of like the MC who is confused but trying his best to survive. Once we are... more>> told (through some info dumps, honestly) what on "earth" is going on (get it?!) it makes so much sense and it becomes very interesting. The world building steadily moves forward and opens up many possibilities.

Character wise... it's definitely diverse. I must say that I do not like the two female companions of our MC; the loli is especially creepy with that anti-social, yandere-like personality and her sister seems like a carbon copy of all useless female sidekick. The sister started off a little better but ended up a common trope. I must say however, that all the other male characters are quite well written. Each has a distinct flair and personality appropriate for their character making them seem more relatable. Our MC is the smart, almost a walking library type of guy who isn't afraid to use his fist. He is quite realistic in that while he does want to "free" his world, he is quite the pragmatist.

There are gaming elements, and more modern weapons, down to the sci-fi mechas but it doesn't overshadow the world that he lives in. While others might dislike the author's Gundam or LoL references, I think it instead solidifies the world that our MC lives in which is technically our world. If this was a fantasy series based in Imperial China, then yes, Garen or Jarvan from Demacia jokes would certainly be out of place.

The translation is done well, I have no noticeable complaints and it is consistent enough. The story is fresh and unique in its premise for me personally where the closest novels I could think of that has this admin vs the world or bug fixing would be Kumo Desu Ga and My Disciple Died Yet Again respectively. Worth a shot if you are looking for a good read! <<less

There are a lot of good parts but a lot of cheesy awkward parts. It’s a novel idea, and a very interesting one at that. However, the dialogue for several parts are... Forced. The fact that the MC is a web novelist yet similar to what nubdog stated forgets himself makes it really idiotic and forced to the point where it feels awkward to read.

It's not a bad story, but the biggest pet peeve I have with it is the fact that they use the word bitter/bitterly way too often. It's like every 2 paragraphs.

It reminds me of of "Everyone else is a returnee". I haven't checked but I would not be surprised if it's the same Author. That person also used the word way too often. The only difference is that in "Everyone else is a returnee" it starts using the word bitterly very often right away and in "Gate of revelation" they... more>> start using it often around chapter 25-28.

It wouldn't be so bad if they used the word correctly, but they don't. It's just no matter what happens they "Smile bitterly" or any other time they need to express a certain emotion it's only bitter. It slowly turns me insane while reading it. At least the Author doesn't switch around than and then or Your and you're. I can't be the only one that is annoyed by the constant misuse of the word bitter right?

Id give this a rating of 4 stars normally, but I feel a bit bitter and decided to go with a 3 star. I highly doubt it was the translators fault btw. Translations were pretty good. <<less

GOR is definitely underrated but I can see why because of its slow beginning. Compared to other stories this story is extremely unique in that you cannot predict what will happen next and the storyline is original and not repetitive. You don't have to worry about the constant get stronger face stronger enemy almost die then kill enemy rinse and repeat. The MC is smart and the author does a great job in utilizing that aspect by solving problems in a way that the MC sees but the reader will... more>> not. Overall if you can get through the slower beginning you will definitely not regret reading this novel and you will see why other reviews also state the same <<less

Highly Recommended. The premise is fairly unique. It's not like a VR/game world, although there are game-like elements. The characters are well-rounded and the author appears to be very well read on a diverse array of subjects. This results in a fairly rich world building as well as an excellent level of depth and detail when it comes to environments, scenarios, and character interactions. The story is fairly thought-provoking by webnovels standards and the arcs are never repetitive or formulaic. The MC is not op, but is intelligent, capable, and... more>> likable. He also undergoes character development over the course of the novel. Moreover, unlike the vast majority of Chinese webnovels, there is also number of fairly fleshed out supporting characters. There are even a couple minor characters (with greatcharacterization) that you get to see more than once.

Overall, I seriously recommend this novel. It is highly underrated. <<less

Due to an (apparent) system bug, the MC discovers that he's an NPC living in a Matrix-like game. He gains game-like superpowers and has to fight for his survival in a death game.


- Translation quality is good.
- MC is likable. Side characters are interesting.
- Unique concept. Story raises some interesting philosophical questions.
- The "dungeons" have a background (historical) theme that the MC uses his smarts to overcome. One of the author's notes says he did a lot of research for this, which is unique I guess. Personally I find that it kind of takes away from the whole "kill monsters, get loot" theme of RPGs/games though. Even the players the MC meets don't seem to care about the game's fluff; though it makes sense from a gamer's perspective (who the hell would study (apparently fake) history to play a dungeon?).
- Interesting dungeon concepts/events.

- Writing quality is okay. Author can be long-winded though, which makes the chapters feel slow-paced and full of filler (eg: explaining the obvious). Author also keeps breaking the fourth wall with self-insertion and direct references to things like Gundam, which breaks immersion and deflates the seriousness/tension in the story.
- Power system is vague. Stats/items use an alphabet ranking (SS > S > A >... > F etc). Since the MC and everyone else starts at B you can probably expect problems with power inflation later on. Story's already using +/- after the alphabet characters.

As expected, later on there are massive power inflation problems. eg: fighting god-level GM characters; hints of interplanetary/stellar warfare (planet buster bombs, spaceships, etc). Level/stat progression is still vague as hell.


MC and the other special Awakened (Irregulars) received a cheat skill each somehow, which hasn't been explained. Apparently they're supposed to have cloned a player with the bug so I'm not sure why they only gained 1 super rare skill.


Kind of a mixture of the Matrix and Gantz, with a mish-mash of lots of different genres in the dungeons. The story's different, although that doesn't automatically translate into awesome. I would recommend saving up chapters and reading it in batches rather than following every new release. Definitely worth checking out if you're into the real world turned into death game world genre. <<less
