A really good novel. To sum it up its the better Ultimate Evolution type novel in MC, characters, setting, logic, story telling, and action. I compare it to UE because they have many similarities and both suffer from the disease called Info Dumps, but at least in DC its only restricted to item descriptions.

Personally I find this novel closer to the 'infinity' Genre rather than a Virtual reality or MMORPG genre. 'In a infinity novel, they usually go on a mission in a life and death environment. Missions would have tasks needed to be completed in a set environment. Upon completing the mission would they be rewarded with Benefits, money, etc. The benefits acquired during the missions are used in a trading environment in a safe zone. Difficulty would progressively get hardier as the story goes on.'

While there is some Virtual aspect such... more>> as the game, leveling up system and trading. If you readied Terror infinity, you can see the similarly between the two novels. Compare to Terror infinity which uses movies as the mission setting, the author uses his own worldly setting for his missions. The combat, mission, overall feeling basically points that this novel is more Infinity genre than a Virtual reality novel.

The Positives:

1. The mission setting are quite interesting, wouldn't say its fantastic but doesn't have too much issues.

2. The Main Character has guts and a brain, really rare these days.

3. Actions that are logical.

4. Battles are quite interesting, During a battle with a group of soldiers, he at least knows the bare minimum of a squad set up.


  1. As a LE personnel, there's slight unrealistic moments, but its only my perspective and doesn't hinder the novel in any way.
  2. Doesn't have any major faults, not for now at least, probably will edit this if there is one.

While this is a VRMMORPG type novel, at this point, it has used a more modern setting. The details of what is going on haven't completely unfolded, and there is potential for some big changes as the MC is still in the tutorial stages. A lot of the world, both in game and out, has yet to be revealed so it's hard to make a judgement.

At this juncture the in game setting reminds me of IET's Swallowed Star, but remains more grounded in present day and reality. That is to... more>> say, people are't flying around, guns are still considered deadly, and have yet to encounter mutated beasts. Just people doing bad things, at least that is my understanding at this point. <<less

This is great story. MC is smart and decisive. It does not feel like virtual world at all, it's more like another world. Death is real, and you can't quit the game. NPC characters have intelligence and personality, and so players call them natives.

I don't understand why this story has so low rating, it's definitely one of the best novels here. It might be because it's on Qidian, same goes for other stories like the castle of black iron.

C33 marks the end of the first arc. An entertaining read that it's style stands out from other game element novels

Its like reading a game of Metal Gear Solid. ... more>>

MC gets same skill set as Snake, and the first arc is like completing an extended mission.


Action is nice, and story is somewhat intelligent. It looks like MC will stay weaker than his challenge and require brains to complete the missions.

A few things bothered me. Stuff that broke immersion of feeling the game world, that the author choose to ignore or add to move the story along.


1. MC doesn't full explore gaining skills, which can boost his stats. Sure there is some, but there are some serious misses in this category. For me, I would try out everything to get as many skills as possible, and since this didn't happen, I couldn't help but cry out after every chapter, please use a blunt weapon, try throwing knives...

2. MC does really well on his noob starting area that has golden opportunities, so what happens, he gets penalized by changing it from 7 days to 3 days. He could unlock so many skills, either by performing actions, help out NPC, which could lead to learning and unlocking skills, or killing military experts to loot skill tomes. All these of course would raise his stats.

It's just not good... or rather, it's not a virtual reality novel. I went into it expecting a virtual reality novel based on the tag and description, but it doesn't feel like virtual reality at all... the author doesn't do a good job of distinguishing reality from virtual reality, NPC from human, etc. Even with a realistic game that has no protections and can kill you (i.e. Sword Art Online lol), you should still be able to clearly distinguish reality from virtual reality. If you like other VRMMORPG novels, and... more>> are looking for something similar, this is not for you. If you like Terror Infinity type novels, this is more in line with that. <<less

There's nothing much to say as of now.. It looks pretty good, the start it's pretty fast paced and has some potential regarding the story. Have to see how it's going to develop in the future chapters.

It's a decent novel, nothing particularly unique or well written. It's nothing more than stat porn, as the MC shifts from one scenario to the next without any meaningful interactions, thoughts, or actions. All you get is the MC killing a random one dimensional character, getting stats, then going to the next zone. Which is not bad, but this novel is not thought out in any way. I've read Let's Plays of rpg games that have more depth than this.
