I felt like I was dreaming, kind of in a haze and by the end of the book I woke up. This novel's reading experience is sometimes slow, sometimes fast. The first arc is around 30-40 chapters long. Personally, even though I enjoyed it -- I realized it didn't need to be dragged out that long. The second arc was what made me go 'ok I can do this, I can read this novel' -- but then I went through all of the arcs and felt that reading this novel... more>> is like the experience of 'dreaming'. Sometimes a scene is very vivid, sometimes it's slow/you can't remember anything. Nothing is typical, each story took it's own turn. Even some of the typical types like 'zombie apocalypse' or 'fighting the zergs' has it's own spin. It's a very pleasant, very smooth ride up-hill. No need to worry about anything, even less annoying teammates. The romance is set in stone around... well, the third arc? After that, they are together now and go through all the scenes together. The ending is abit abrupt, but I'm not mad about it. In the end, I had a very good dreaming experience. <<less

Honestly, I thought this story was really good at first! I especially liked the first arc a lot~ That arc fully explored the game mechanics and had a relatively slower pacing. But by the second and third arc the pacing completely turned around and became a bit of a mess. By the end of the third arc the progression was 75-85% “Telling vs Showing”, making the chapters a real slog to get through T.T Anyway, I’m holding onto hope that this will improve in the next arc? Hopefully 😭? I’ll... more>> come back to reread it when the translation is further along to find out! The story is pretty fun to read, so I’m hesitant to give up on it just yet.

I’ll write a more detailed review when I do that, but the basic gist is that the MC and ML find themselves in a survival game setting where they are given tasks (i.e., killing barbarians). These tasks have to do with completing the main mission but they also give lots of bonuses when completed (i.e., dropped rewards, increase in physical attributes, etc.). The MC is not the ambitious type, he’s very careful! But he ends up paired with the ML, who is surprisingly hot-blooded (always eager to chase after gains and wins). <<less

The downward thing about this novel is, that it's quite monotonous. Sure, the first 3rd arcs (up to chapter 70) are exciting, and I admit I read every chapter expectantly, however, as I read on, I find my excitement couldn't catch up with the later arcs. The survival plots are still exciting, but the survival methods and ways to advance are relatively monotonous and aren't new or surprising, hence unable to evoke my interest.

That said, for those who mainly search for survival novels, just want to have some fun... more>> and read survival stories while do not expect a high requirement for rare plots, and feel alright with any type of romance, then, this novel is suitable for you. Because I myself finished this whole novel just to pass the time, and while I was in the mood of reading survival games.

But for those who seek perfection in plots and romance, then my reviews below would perhaps add more consideration to whether you want to continue forward, or put this novel on hold, waiting for the time your mood for survival games appears.

Before coming to the reviews, I would like to thank the translator here to bring this novel to novelupdates, regardless of the translation's quality, without their effort to put the novel here, I won't be able to locate this novel among the thousands of Chinese Novels out there.

Now, let's get to the review.

Perhaps If I read this when I haven't read other masterpieces, I will still find it amazing, so blame me, and lament the fact that I didn't read this novel much earlier that it failed to keep up with my excitement, lol.

While the survival plots are interesting, forgive me but the romance is quite... flat.

Once again, blame me and blame the fates that I didn't read this novel early on, since after reading other romance masterpieces, my weary heart could only skip all over the paragraphs containing MC and ML's supposedly "romance development". Why? Because it's flat and again, it's not new that it's worthy to evoke my interest in their romance development. It's not bad, really, but it's so-so.

Spoiler

Sure, I can understand the part where the ML is only soft and kind in front of the MC while being fierce and unreasonable towards others, after all the MC is his comrade who has shared life and death with him, it's natural to be biassed towards this kind of teammates.

I can also understand the reason why even when they're still in the 1st arc, ML was already hostile towards a girl who wanted to hug MC's thigh and ride his coattails. After all, if it was me, I would also feel annoyed if there's suddenly a handsome guy who barged into the comradery between me and one girlfriend. I'd be afraid the handsome guy will become baggage dragging us down, and even more afraid that the teammates whom I had been comfortably cooperated with, suddenly might be hooked by the uninvited guy, I'd have no good feelings towards the guy no matter how handsome he was, LOL.

However, in the next arcs, the ML's hostility towards others who actually just wanted to make friends with MC, had gotten me annoyed. This is just my own personal taste, but I didn't really like a Gong or Seme who had strong dominance.

[collapse]

My last dissatisfaction with the romance is the pace.

Spoiler

The MC and ML here met in the first arc, then they got separated in the 2nd arc, and met again in the 3rd arc. The ML has already shown ambiguous advances since the first arc, and finally, they dated in the 3rd arc.

[collapse]

But of course, it's probably just due to my own personal taste. When it comes to survival or action-based novel, I really didn't like early romance. I would rather like action or survival novels to have a slow build-up and gradual change in relationships. In that way, I would feel happy to focus more on the plots, while also following the step by step of their relationship change.

After all, in my own personal opinion and my own logic, in the world where your death is waiting for you like the Sword of Damocles hanging on top of your head every day, the mentality of humans would be survival first and love later. To build a close friendship in a dangerous world setting might already be quite hard in my opinion, much less experiencing lovey-dovey entanglement. Therefore, in this kind of setting, I would rather have a romantic development with the direction of: friends--- to a trusted partner with a favorable impression--- and gradually love realization.

I will compare it with other survival or unlimited flow novels, that are popular and more people have probably read them, for my reviews to be understood better. It's not to disdain this novel while elevating other novels, but to make a comparison, of WHY I have to evaluate this novel as average, in my own personal opinion.

An example of slow-burn romance is, of course, Earth Is Online, a survival novel where the MC and ML can be truly seen and described as acquaintances, to friends, to partners, and finally lovers.

Even if the novel has early romance, at least, the interaction should be natural for me to like it. An example of it is, Supernatural Movie Actor, a novel where MC and ML have begun to date since the very beginning, however, their interaction is very natural, and not cringe-worthy. The meaning of cringe-worthy here is when others read it they won't feel like they were about to roll their eyes. The couple is harmonious, and the affection shower is not awkward or inviting any face-palming motions.

Of course, in the end, what differentiates it was the way the authors wrote their MC and ML's interaction, and how they tweaked the details here and there to make it appear natural, and not ambiguous. I prefer a natural way rather than a highly ambiguous interaction. Even if it was ambiguous, then I prefer to have the should be ambiguous interaction turned into naturally created.

An example of a novel where the MC and ML already have an ambiguous relationship from the start is MDZS. However, the scenes where it should be ambiguous, like, how LWJ caught WWX's hand, were turned into a natural scene because the author didn't add unnecessary details like, "LWJ's heart beat faster. WWX's hand is slender and white, it's nice to touch and grope", etc. LOL. Another one, even if LWJ and WWX ended up sleeping in one bed and one room in the Inn, the author once again didn't add unnecessary narration like, "WWX's heart beat faster, he could feel the temperature of the person beside him. He woke up in LWJ's arms in the morning, and shyly evaded LWJ's eyes" etc, etc, LOL!!!

Instead of adding the cringe-worthy narration, MDZS just goes forward with the plot. The author lets the readers cry in surprise and squealed happily, but then aloofly and calmly advances to the plot. The author gives us ambiguous scenes but just lets us imagine the details on our own, thus stimulating our excitement, without adding those UNNECESSARY narrations, lmao. That way, even the ambiguous interaction would be natural and not cringe-worthy...

That's right, the addition of narration from the author is what makes the MC and ML's interaction in this novel, in my opinion, causing me to facepalm, and later skip them all and just read the paragraphs about the plot, lmao. <<less

this is OK, but my attention started to wander after the third extended quest popped up and forced them to continue with the barbarian scenario instead of letting them finish the novice game already. I was done with it by that point and wanted to move on, but there were still another fifteen chapters to wade through before the end of volume 1 (each game world is divided into volumes on jjwxc). Going to stop here for now and maybe try again some other day.

I agree with a lot of people in this about how it did get a little too smooth and monotonous after a few arcs. The selling point of this novel for me anyway is that it's got quite a few unique and really interesting "worlds" or tasks. Additionally the MC is not a crazy person who adapts super easily in the first world and is instead led to overachieve by the ML who doesn't settle for less. Though that's only really for the first arc because they become crazy op... more>> after said arc due to all the extra points from the beginner stage extended quests.

The extended quests were really exciting at the beginning, but because they happened at every arc and you knew they were coming without fail and that the main couple would always pass, they lost traction after a while. It's just too smooth with no setbacks ever. However they were very interesting still sometimes even though I expected it and I really liked reading the progression of them like "leveling" up without the monotony that a lot of cultivation/fighting novels tend to have with boss fights and such.

I was mainly reading this almost with a slice of life kind of attitude in that I was relaxed and not really expecting very much tension from this anyway so it was good. Like I didn't really mind that there was nothing much or unexpected happening because I knew it wouldn't. I liked the uniqueness of certain arcs bad how mc/ML sort of solved them and I enjoyed the way the MC broke down gaming logic as he's a game designer himself. Idk how to explain it- you have to go into this knowing that the mc/ML pair will just succeed at whatever they do. It lacks the complexity and tension of a lot of other survival games on this website so don't go expecting that. Not many returning side characters of any interest besides mc/ML couple (except for the short amount of time they had a third teammate person who was like a hacker but it wasn't very long in my opinion nor was he expanded on very much). I appreciated the fact that they sort of had to work to find each other kind of (like they didn't remember the identity of the other person after the game but the ML found him through some descriptions MC gave of his life).

Romance was also ok at best. ML kind of is a little crazy (like the tiniest bit yandere without actually going there) because he doesn't really care about people excluding MC which can be argued that neither does MC, but he's like a little too ok with death and killing and stuff I guess? Idk how better to explain like he's toeing the line at being a little bit psycho. He gets pissed at people for even wanting to be friendly or just the most basic interaction with MC which sometimes is common in webnovels but that much jealousy honestly makes me personally feel like the relationship could get abusive (even though I know it won't in this) because it's such a red flag in real life. I also do agree with other reviewer about how it progressed a little too quick and was also kind of annoying to read the two of them after a while. I really hated the descriptions of their interactions after a while cuz its like the same thing over and over- like I found myself skimming so much of their relationship and other stuff going on outside the survival arcs (and that's usually some of my favorite parts like seeing them grow and the plot in the real world also progress, but on this there was basically no real world plot anyway).

Spoiler

like technically the ml's family tried to murder him which landed him in the survival game in the first place, but literally handled in like a couple chapters. Like probably gave that plot line like 2 paragraphs between every arc and that's it. Besides that, it was entirely just mc/ML being "romantic" but with little substance IMO.

[collapse]

But overall, I think this is a good novel to read if you like the survival genre and are lacking content. Its actually pretty good and I liked it, but it just couldn't live up to the better novels in the genre like Card Game and The Earth is Online. It's kind of it's own thing and not really the same as a lot of the survival/horror in that it's really not as complex or serious IMO but that could also be considered it's positive because it doesn't have a lot of convoluted logic or plot that sometimes make those novels tedious. Treat it less seriously and something to read if you're bored since it's interesting and quick. Horror tag doesn't really apply except like one arc or something. <<less

This is honestly really good???

I know the romance was pretty bad-- I mean, it was practically one of those love-at-first-sight kind of plots, but the premise of the story itself was amazing. The second world will probably always be my favorite one because the MC was truly the main focus there. It is first shown that he is better with long-ranged weapons (like a bow) than fighting melee style. However, there were multiple instances where he was still very proficient with a knife, despite the fact that he had no... more>> previous combat experience and that it's one of his weaker fighting styles.

The MC is not someone who needs to hide behind the ML all the time and receive protection, instead, he's someone who can protect himself:

Spoiler

In the 2nd world, MC was all alone and managed to use his amazing combat abilities to become the "King" of some game and receive the "God Xia" title. It showed that even on his own, the MC is able to triumph over everybody else.

[collapse]

Other than the nonsensical way that they fell in love, everything else was pretty good as they were genuinely considered to be a "power couple". <<less

Xia Ruize is a game designer that is pulled into a series of savival games. Throught which he grows stronger along with the ML

Its a good read but not one of the bests. There some great reversals in some of the arcs and the overal premis on why and how the savival games came about is good but the characterisation was a little flat. It started off quite well showing how mentaly Xia Ruize was changing over the first couple of arcs but after none of the few characters really... more>> developed other than gaining new skills. Things ran a little too smoothly, expecially in the last couple of arcs, it didn't feel like it was an increase of difficulty. Just a longer period of time needed to complete the task.

If you like OP characters and some interesting reversals this is for you, just don't experct much on the character interaction side. <<less

I love it. Compared to other novels where the characters directly became overpowered, this is different.

There is a clear gradual process of their strengths and growths.

Ex;

... more>> At first chapter, Xia Ruize was panicked and afraid at his inexplicable encounter but after some experiences he became more active to solve hidden missions and more calm to understand the situation.

I really the fact that the Author didn't let them meet in their second mission after their novice world. It made Xia Ruize grow more and become more independent from Cheng Huaiqian.

The plot is good and the worlds in their mission, love it.

I love how they had one more teammate excluding the two of them.

The romance is not slow which is I'm happy about. It's not too fast just right.

And when the couple become official, the Author didn't flaunt the sweet like the novel is all about romance, which is another point I'm happy about.

You can see their love to each other throughout the novel with them just doing the missions, it didn't say they kissed, f*cked.

The writing quality of it is okay. In raws, it was understandable. I teared up a little when it ended.

Anyway, left this story happy that's all that matters.

Recommended when you're looking for unlimited flow/quick transmigration with BL. <<less

The premise of each arcs, item and skills drops are interesting enough. I also have nothing to say about the Leads. It's just you'll see that the author had no sense of pace, the arcs got drag on until it became boring and monotous that you'll just want to skip it. It's fine if the authors wants to do long arcs, but they clearly didn't have the capability to do it properly.

I'm gonna rate this a 3.5/5

I really like character of both ML and MC. They both are powerful but not overpowering. It is logical for them to be powerful as they start growing from the reward after finish the mission in each world. The story for each world is good too, the plot and how they finish the task is splendid. However, the end of the story is too rush, it as if the writer want to finish the story asap.

... more>>
Spoiler

After finish the last world, they learn the truth of the world then back to reality and then get marry and end. No mention about how the company, research that they developing will be or have they contact their old teammate or tell him about the secret of gold zone and no mention of how they will take care of the mission world in the future, at least it should be few more special chapters. Everything seems to be rush compare to how the story proceed before, the end of the last world and the end of the story are in the same chapter.

I read this via MTL a while ago so I might miss something but this story is ok overall. I'd rate it 3.5* but there are parts that I like enough so I'll be nice. The main selling point of this novel is not the main quest itself, but the reversal they did for the hidden tasks and the many ways the author make the copies with the theme 'survival'. In this novel, the survival is mostly against being they can actually fight.

For example:... more>>
Spoiler

other humans, mutated animals, competitions, money. Only one copy have 'evil spirit' as the 'enemy' but, like every other copy, there was a reversal at the end.

[collapse]

One thing that stood out for me is the lack of conversation between everyone. The sadest part is
Spoiler

the fact that MC really only befriended ML (who became his boyfriend) and one hacker specialist side chara. Too little character pool. There are other players mentioned... but just mentioned. They get maybe a paragraph worth of existence? Yeah...

[collapse]

Also, it was too smooth? No suspense whatsoever. Main reason I was disappointed:
Spoiler

It was even revealed that they were basically nurtured by the main God of the world. Soo yeah.

[collapse]

However, I do think the reversals are interesting. Bear with the first arc (the worst and honestly just a block of descriptions for the most part), and wait for our CP to reunite
Spoiler

in the 3rd copy
