I have to say that this is the best and most favourite of all the gaming novels I've read ^_^ seriously can't get enough of this story.

The fact that this also has a stable update is especially satisfying (2 chapters everyday basically).

If you want action and humour, with a good amount of OPness in the characters mixed with martial arts and commonsense breaking, this is the story for you!

I've never been turned off so much by a novel so hard initially you think this would be something like moonlight sculptor but nah after he receives his initial batch of money that attitude swing was like dafuq? And really tho whats with the abs does nobody else have abs its kinda creepy. It mostly feels like the authors writing about his fantasies and pretty much unreadable even if you can turn off your brain but thats just imo.

This may be even worse than mmorpg:rebirth. I was excited when I first saw all the 5 star ratings on this novel when it first came out. The first few chapters were decent however, it quickly became another wish fullfillment story after. The MC's ingame name is Iron Bull, which is the same as the author's name.

The MC is some poor sap martial arts expert, which apparently are extinct in this day and age, he gets looked down upon by everyone and is not able to find a job, his... more>> wife has been supporting him all this time. He complains all the time about how poor he is and wants to make money. He plays a class that rarely anyone plays and is considered to be trash just like how people think of him in real life, but it turns out that the class is OP.

This is when the story takes a dive. He becomes one of the first to solo a tough boss and all of a sudden he thinks he's tough sh*t now, acting like some rich billionaire because he made a few thousand dollars by selling some low tier items to rich players that he goes giving away tens/hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of skill books and gear to people that he just met or to rude players trying to scam him. To top it off, apparently other classes innate skills has no effect on him such as stealth (thief/assassin), which is just stupid that they would not patch something that would pretty much make a class useless. MC can somehow "sense" invisible enemies, catch arrows with his bare hands, and can somehow dodge 100% of hits when confronted by a dozen or more players, what a joke. Note that we only 30 chapters in, who knows in 100 more chapters we'll see MC facing 1000 players by himself.

Don't even get me started on his real life. To prove that the writer is just here to full fill his fantasy, the female tenants somehow always catches him working out and showing off his s*xy body and at one point he lets them touch his naked chest/body so they can "feel" his muscles. Apparently fit men are extinct in this novel aside from MC. This guy already has a wife whom has always supported him while all he does is work out and eat, what a ungrateful SOB. Seems like the MC will have a harem in real life or will cheat on his wife. One of the female tenants even stated she's a gold digger and wants a sugar daddy so she can laze around, so they aren't just some innocent virgins fawning over the first guy they see.

Don't waste your time reading this, unless you really enjoyed mmorpg:rebirth.

MC personality:

Chapters 1-10~ = Some poor guy that is trying to find a job to support his family and not have her wife do all the work.

Chapters 15+ = Some arrogant cocky guy with white knight syndrome that thinks he can do anything he wants and give away rare items and skill books worth thousands to strangers because he thinks they're "trash" and "protecting females ingame while killing everyone that isn't in his sect or is a female. <<less

Words cannot describe my disappointment. Having read the synopsis, I went in expecting an at least decent, if a bit cliched, novel mixing martial arts with VRMMORPG elements...

Instead, what I got was an MC so overpowered he was able to ... more>>
Spoiler

kill a boss with a ??? lvl when he was level 6, owned only beginner equipment and had one single skill. Did I also mention he was alone at that time. Simply ridiculous.

[collapse]
Needless to say, I'm dropping this novel. The only redeemable quality is the translation and the fact that the MC was already married, sparing us from the melodramatic scenario of his crush thinking of him as trash, as is often the case with Chinese novels. <<less

Horrendously mega-overpowered MC playing a game and being absurdly better than everyone. It's competently written, and it doesn't violate its own rules, which is a huge plus.

On the downside, that's about it. Nothing interesting has happened in a hundred chapters. Just him being OP and waving his big d*ck around.

Frankly, I enjoy it, but by now, I expected the MC to encounter a setback. Good, and entertaining in its right, but ultimately, it's like reading about Superman in the Olympics and winning 80 gold medals. What is even the point?... more>> I don't mind reading a story about the very best man in the world, but the author needs to get off his own MC's d*ck. By which I mean his own d*ck, since the MC has the same name as the author.

So. Here's the question: How much you can tolerate watching the author stroke himself? <<less

Well, I will makes you understand 1 thing

This is not a " Serious MMORPG world " But A COMEDY !!!!

Its like saying in the anime one punch man It is borring Saitama will always win his opponent its pointless to watch there is no opponent that can win him and all his opponent say " I'm too stronk etc " and still die in the end in one punch....

... more>> This is a comedy about what " VRMMORPG Novel do "

If you thinks something with a MMORPG that being serious read Legendary moonlight sculptor or overgeared

If you want to have fun this one is pretty nice !

Normally I'm too lazy for reviews. Howe've this novel is one of the best I've seen, in terms of VR novels. This novel really implemebts real life elements into the VR world really well.

The use of martial arts in the VR world of this novel is never before seen I'm others, plus with how others look down on the MC, there are many face-smacking scenes which is just fun too read.

Don't let all those 5* reviews mislead you... This novel is decent only if you are willing to turn off your brain while reading it. The MC is way too OP and he became like that with 0 effort in the game part. I have no idea how are they ever gonna give him troubles. Throw him 1 v 100 enemies? Tell him to slaughter whole city alone?

You want some examples? Sure, here we go, from memory, so can be not 100% accurate.

... more>>
Spoiler

-MC starts the game 2-3 days after it was already released, meaning other ppl had 2-3 days of a headstart compared to him and yet he is somehow the first ever person to finish "beginner village" and trigger update of the game. So at this point you look at this and are like- heh, MC is so godly OP, there is no way in hell that other ppl can catch up to him.

-MC is soloing boss that is more than twice of his level (MC was around level 12-13, boss was said to be above level 40, since he dropped level 40 sword). He does it effortlessly... He levels up by grinding mobs that are also near 10 levels higher than him, narrator keep on describing how noone else is able to do that. We get it even more now, our MC is godlike character that cant be ever compared to other players.

-Now the best part! MC joins a guild, sure, why not? And in that guild there are magically a bunch of ppl who are lvl 14, while our godly MC is only lvl 15 himself. How? How is it possible for them to be so high level if our MC was first ever person to reach lvl 10 and he keeps on grinding on mobs and bosses that are impossible to kill for anyone else? How is this supposed to be logical? Those people are also nowhere near as skilled as MC so how they got to this levels so fast?

So... If you want to read this turn off your thinking. Godly MC is soloing bosses way more than twice his level and I bet he will keep on doing this while a bunch of "normal" (highly skilled but not "godly") players will be somehow able to keep their leveling speed near his.

[collapse]

EDIT:Another one of strange things- MC plays the game to earn money coz he wants to help his wife (they both are living off her earnings only- basically MC is a martial arts neet incapable of normal work) and yet he gives out for free few items and skillboks that would be worth quite a bit (he saved few grills ingame and killed a boss, gives them drops coz he is a nice guy, reject when said girls wanted to pay for items). How can it happen if his main motivation is being able to help his wife and share her burdens?

TL;DR This is the biggest issue, if you create "godly" MC you need to create a bunch of godly side characters (his friends and enemies), otherwise it is just dumb how normal people are able to keep up with a god. <<less

Unlike some famous VR novels where the MC is a DAMN DENSE SINGLE, the MC here has a wife and seeing their interaction, it's kinda sweet :)..

Although this is still another OP MC with lack of common sense, it is still good for FIST IS THE BEST WAY OF INTERACTION BETWEEN MEN. Haha

Getting unnecessary flak, if you don't take it too seriously and just enjoy the read it's not so bad. Him being so overpowered is just the nature of the story and setting, it doesn't make it bad, just one of those types of novels.

Slightly comical, interesting enough to keep the reader's attention. While it's not stand out, it's still fun to read and I personally will continue to do so :)

here it came, , , the new gaming WN, really love this new series. The MC is frickin’ OP, because he’s basically undefeated master of martial arts eventhough he’s completely in the game. The independence control system in the game makes MC can give all his potential of martial artin it. Can’t wait for more chapters. 5 stars so far.

From what I've seen so far, nothing has made me want to invest in the novel. For one, I don't like this type of blockhead OP MC who unconsciously do amazing things. What I hate the most about is that we have to sit through people reacting at how amazing the MC is and you could even add a little "you're a newbie?!" at the end for a little more spice.

Quite frankly, I'm just tired of this whole trope of people getting amazed by the MC. The fact that the... more>> game is broken af does not help at all. 10 chapters in and the MC is already pretty much confirmed to be the strongest player in the game seeing how amazed the control panel was at seeing him solo a Boss. I figured there's probably not much else to see here since he's the strongest ingame anyway.

While others praise the novel for having an MC that is actually already married, I don't really think it's all that special. Sure, it's quite a novelty that hasn't been seen yet in this genre but the novel doesn't really do anything special with it, or maybe it tried but failed anyway. The whole chapter shopping with the wife was quite honestly very painful and cringe-inducing.
Spoiler

He's made money from the game and so he took out his wife to shopping without telling her that he finally has money. The poor wife was all worried the entire time since she didn't have much money to pay for them. I don't know what I was supposed to feel about this, should I have been "ohohoho, wait to be surprised girl!"? And some other things happened but basically this entire event was just disappointing.

[collapse]

The conversations.... feel weird. It's something I've noticed in other similar novels. The people talking doesn't feel like they're adults, and by saying this I'm trying to insult their IQ. Every line has some kind of emotion added into it and it just makes the whole thing look ridiculous and exaggerated. It's like everyone has to shout and talk with exclamation points. I just skimmed through a chapter right now to see the number of exclamation points and I laughed at how I didn't notice it earlier.

Now back at the whole game balance thing.... To be honest, a novel doesn't need sets of elegant and complicated rules and mechanics to be good, in fact most of the times that backfires because it can easily go wrong with the novel having too much info dump and the author being more prone to inconsistencies. However, that doesn't mean that the opposite is good. A braindead game by no means make the novel good, unless it was originally intended to be braindead in the first place. Otherwise, a game where there's a class that's labeled as basically useless is just a bad game. There's only 7 classes to choose from, they could've at least tried to make all 7 balanced. But of course I haven't really seen yet how much of a broken class it is yet since all I've seen was how amazing and cool and strong (cue kyaa have my babies) the MC is at it. Which brings me to my second point which is that the MC is stupidly strong. Not the first time I've seen an OP MC, but my gripe about it is that it's making it out like there's no other person who's as strong as the MC. He's so good at the game because what, he knows karate? It's like it's saying he's the only person who's practiced martial arts in the entire world, or at least the others that did were obviously nowhere as good as him since the game mods were speechless at how good he is. Basically, this is just bad writing that shows how hard the author is at trying to make his MC look cool.

Now if there's one thing I want to praise this novel at, to the point where I would even be willing to rate it 2 stars just because of it, was that particular scene where the MC makes a joke at how fake the NPCs are, crying at one second and then laughing the next line. Now when have you ever seen an MMORPG Novel where the NPCs are not actually highly intelligent AIs that gets bullied by the players who think nothing more of them than just some cleverbots? I've always hated that trope and although this isn't really much of a big deal, I still appreciate it a lot.

All in all, it's one of those novels mainstream novels like IRAS and Shadow Hack that forcefully lowers your IQ for you to be able to read it. I might've enjoyed it back then when I wasn't too familiar with novels in general yet but now I just can't ignore the absurdities anymore. Still, I wouldn't be so heartless as to rate it 1/5. It had some mildly funny moments between its painful/boring to read fillers and I actually didn't rage quit. I just suddenly said meh and decided to drop it because it wasn't worth it anymore. Overall, 2 stars. There's not much going on here. The plot is unoriginal and the writing is bad. It didn't see much of a potential and I don't see how this novel could've turned into something good. <<less

This is ok, and was growing on me- but is now getting tiresome. It had quite a similarity to Legendary Moonlight Sculptor- though it's not a rip-off, more 'a similar world' mechanics and setup (though slightly inferior).

'Magic VRMMO lets cash-strapped protag be OP in the VR world. Everything goes his way.'

more or less.

The background and characters are slightly unusual- The MC is happilly married, and though there are rumblings of potential harem-ness, it's highly unlikely to happen. the characters are somewhat developing- but so far, it's a great deal of... more>> 'we're all jerks, but you like us anyway' as a story premise. Seriously- the author's gone out of their way to paint every affiliated character as selfish and/or reprehensible, and no one seems to care because 'they're nice to me' (I guess).

The plotting is pretty good, with minor issues on things shoehorned in for convenience- but altogether entertaining so far. The MC has a likable personality, and is clever- though some of his clever 'crosses the line' when he's supposed to be a noob as well, but it doesn't really 'break' anything (since MC=OP already).

I finally figured out why I keep reading this besides the 'why bother- it's average at best...' and the 'this bit is interesting- wonder where this will go...' imbalance- and it's the 'A plot', 'B, C, D... plot' imbalance.

The 'A plot' (the main story abut the protag & his challenges) is pretty average and predictable- at times sub-par. Add to that the crap personalities and antics of most everyone around him, and this is a 'drop'- easily.

The 'B plot' (& others) are also pretty average too- but there are enough of them, and they are somewhat interesting, and they fit in with the 'A plot' (more or less) in occasionally unexpected ways. This keeps things from being fully predictable- and surprisingly this is where most of the 'nice' characters are.

Be warned though- this doesn't exactly elevate the whole- just serves pretty well as a curiosity feeder. I guess it kind of suggests the writer is better at writing soaps the VR fantasy.

Speaking of the VR side- this 'game world' is supposedly a PVP server (as far as drama is concerned), but the story mechanics pretty much show the author only has a 'better than vague' idea of what that entails. It's PVP 'when convenient'- but otherwise the 'despicable characters guild' (Quan Zen sect) pretty much has free movement and is ignored by everyone (for reasons of story convenience & despite their universally being hated) till the writer feel like 'things should happen'.

I guess to 'damn' the author for this when it's not uncommon for the genre would be excessive, but trust me- the list of 'liberties taken', 'luck awarded', and 'expertise excelled in' is pretty long (and effortlessly gained for the most part).

It may be your cup of tea, or not. Worth a look at least- it is different. <<less

It's really great.

Well, I am one of those who read many, many novels and manga over the years.

And this is fresh in:

  1. MC got a wife and their interaction is similar to real life interactions.
    Elsewhere it's usually just "Girl X having this thirst to see or touch MC again",
    "Girl Y admiring MC endlessly", "Girls X being jealous of girl Y".
  2. The MC has normal interactions with other players. Not just speaking to NPCs.
  3. The MC is not mentally broken or twisted or just hungry for power due to feeling insecure,
    like it's the usual norm in most other novels.
It is really a fresh breeze after reading so many other novels. The downside here is for the time being that author is not that capable at portraying the MC as... more>> "powerful but dumb" (to make him not too OP).
It would be more believable if the MC had more goals in the game (like, you don't care about MC being dumb if he has many social goals and would say it's rather "slice of life type novel")

I really look forward to reading more. <<less

I don't hate OP characters but for some reason this novel didn't click to me.

Well it might be due to the reason that this novel might also follow the cliche of the MMORPG OP Mc? Where the Mc's would start as OP in the game and breaking it's game balance? One hitting all of the field bosses or something along those lines, getting all of the hidden quests at just the start of the game add in the fact that he would also get those legendary items.

Hmmm but what I... more>> don't really want to see here is that if ever, the MC would for some reason have a secret identity/past where he was a part of a big family, an assassin or the likes or perhaps there would be some aliens at the end of it? Idk I just can't really enjoy reading this novel. Sorry if this kinda end up as a rant <<less

It's like mini-Superman tried VRMMORPG for the first time and wooow. Eh.

This isn't a serious level-up-through-hardships type of vrnovel, but it isn't comedic either - at least for me. Idk where it stands.

Feel free to read and judge it for yourself.

OP MC who is brand new to games and yet is ridiculously competent. He hasn't died once in 30 chapters which is a typical OP MC template but most of the others who never die have been experts in other games or were reborn and start playing again. For a complete newbie not to die once is unbelievable, especially when they're totally clueless when it comes to game mechanics. His wife has inside information, even though she said she's basically just customer service or receptionist or something similar at the... more>> gaming company; no idea how someone like that would know the exact coordinates and spawning method for a boss.

MC ran away from his martial arts family/clan/ sect to marry a normal woman so I'm guessing that will come into play later in the story. I'm really liking that he's already married before the novel starts; their interactions are great. Normally Chinese web novels focused or games or cultivation are terrible at romance and its nice to skip all the awkward introduction, misunderstandings, 'accidental' rape and the like.

hopefully the story stays this way and doesn't devolve into the MC screwing everything with boobs (like the housemates/farming group). Honestly, it will probably gain an extra star from me if it ends up not being a harem, just for novelties sake. Right now I rate it between a 3-4. <<less
