This novel is quite generic but also entertaining to a point.

The characters in this novel is decent, they are the generic side characters you'd see in a generic hunter/gate novel.

Everything in the novel is convenient for the MC, and the villains are all s*upid and useless.

... more>> The world building is also very generic, it's literally the same as any generic modern world hunter/gate novel.

The powers are also generic, I won't use spoilers but those powers honestly doesn't make me excited to see them being used.

The jokes are sometimes funny, but most of them are weak and not good enough to actually be one of the main motivations for reading this novel.

The MC is decent, he's a troll and is pretty fun to read at the start but gets old quickly.

In short, this novel is an inferior solo leveling. Or it can be said to be a very generic hunter/gate novel. If you've ever read any hunter/gate novels, you'll probably recognize the similarity at once, and I don't feel like reading the same thing twice. I guess you read this to waste some of your time. <<less

its a great book, the beginning is like second life ranker, but after the defeat of the frost queen he gets frozen for 25 years, and after he wakes up (in the middle of a museum display of his frozen body which was funny) he learns about how the world has changed, and that he has to get more powerful to unfreeze the other 4 heroes, so far, with little information, I can only recommend the novel to new readers, but if the author continues with this quality of writing,... more>> and reaperscans keeps translating it in the same quality, this will be a great and engaging book.


the info dumps are actually engaging and not just a block of text which is amazing, it kept me entertained while teavmching me about how the world was and how it changed after 25 years, which is understandable



another thing about the character is that he has regressed back to his original values when he was level one, with a powerful skill but not being able to use it in its entirety, which is a breath of fresh air from what the authors usually do with a powerful MC and I love it


sorry about my lack of punctuation with that, but in short, great book, definitely would recommend to anyone wanting a good read (also the notes from the translator are either useful or funny bc they will crack jokes in them, or explain stuff unique to the korean language) <<less

Return of the frozen Player is surprisingly good like good good lol, the good kind where it is almost at the level of SCO Gluttony and Moonlight sculptor or those top tier SK novel from my perspective AKA pure subjective. (It is impossible to have pure objective review anyway)

MC is smart and likeable, companion and friend is quite useful. Though MC had a quite severe hero complex but it is not dragging him down. He is careful and considering his decision in taking action, and most importantly proactive searching... more>> enemies by gathering information not just passively waiting to get attacked and crying later when friend died due to surprise attack and vowing to revenge bullshit.

Though the best element of this novel is its PACING. Story progression and pacing is top tier, the best even that I've read in a while. There are many exciting things and action and after sweaty chapters the author give the reader down time or rest for the MC and readers. These down time and rest chapter is sooooo gooood, they give us nice interaction and fleshed out the character even more like treating deteriorate mental health and fatigue due to constant near death battle, like hanging out with friends, talk about the experience, had a good rest or good amount sleeping (THE MOST IMPORTANT).

It is also not constant battle after battle with the MC seemingly alive by their skin of teeth every time and always on the backfoot and disadvantages. There are times when the plan perfectly executed and gives us a good satisfying beatdown to the enemies.
Antagonist is quite good, though MC get strong but the enemies had a headstart for 27 years while MC forced sleep so he is struggling against them atleast the leader of the human killer organization, and each tower floor is different strong and transcendent of their world or planet like God Emperor of Warhammer 40k so he is not sweeping the floor with them. It is currently ongoing so 5stars, if the ending is good and authordoes not drop the ball for the ending this will stay. :) <<less

Normal KR Dungeon Novels: Start > Fast leveling > God-tier End

Frozen Player: Start> The MEAT >>>>> TBC

Unlike other dungeon novels that skip all the interesting stuff on their quests to kill God. Frozen player takes it's time to build a world, powers and characters. It reads almost like playing the Witcher, the MC will pick up a bunch of side quests and ignore some.

... more>>

He gets notes for introductions to nobles and just never uses them (as of ch280). Instead he tries to be a defendant for Troll homicide.


It's worth your time if you care more about the journey than the destination. The manwha is very good and the raws are pretty decent. <<less

I'll give you a warning, this novel has a good premise, a cliche but still good world building, characters are great and characters development is going well, but the villains are like those Chinese cultivation novel, they're arrogant, useless, c*ckroach (hard to die but useless the story) they're just there to level the MC (well of course that's normal)

Btw, this is an incomplete novel, usually a korean webnovel don't reach 1000 unlike the chinese counterpart or Japanese, at the middle part, you will be bored to death to typical... more>> cliches scenarios.

The last chapter 530 made me really turn my view to this novel. It was a real garbage for a 2019 written novel, still no updates from author to this day. <<less

It isn't perfect, but its damn well better than a lot of the other stuff in the same genre.
I'm only at chapter 68, it probably gets worse.... most of these stories have decent starts mediocre middles and either a cut or sh*t ending.... heres to hoping it stays good.

Pretty generic novel per my standard. The story is bland the same as other novels. It's too heavily focused on combat and ignores character development altogether. He's going solo so no character interaction either. They're also not much thinking in the head nor explanation to justify why the MC's doing it this way. The overall story progress is rapid which makes any past events unimportant and forgetable. I already forgot about the previous 2 dungeons as there is no notable consequence.

The MC is a pure arrogance incarnation, acting like he... more>> can solve everything and know it all which getting on my nerve a bit. Speaking some awesome cliche sentences at everyone to assert dominance "I'm so OP, I don't need your support/money/good weapon". The totally wrong way of getting the reader to like the character. <<less

Pretty awesome. A smart MC with good values. That alone makes this an interesting read.

Normally, you find that authors with a smart protagonist tend to equate that with being a massive dick. Which is slightly depressing. Thankfully, the author doesn't give into this sad trope.

The world's pretty interesting and when "real" locations outside of the author's home country are brought up, it's neutral. Let me explain. There's not a lot of detail to them. In fact, it's clear not much research was done to ground them but what's there isn't... more>> condescending. It's neutral. What little nationalism is there feels normal. Like a subtle pride. A welcome change from the more common, and aggravating, extremist kind.

It's very good and as with all good books, the wait is painful. <<less

It's entertaining but it's also exactly what you think it is. Another generic korean dungeon WN. One thing that bugs me a lot is that the MC either doesn't have any of his old titles for some reason, or we're supposed to believe that the strongest person in the world at one point never gained any titles. He lost his levels because of plot I mean because he ate some orb, sure, but why would that cause him to lose his titles? Even more annoying is that he retained the... more>> title for killing the frost queen, so by that logic he should have all of his other titles, right? Wrong. No explanation, no justification, nothing.

This review ended up being just me ranting about a plot hole but whatever, that sh*t really gets on my nerves. <<less
