Good story, not very unique but a great read

The original story (Apocalypse Now) was a great read, and this is turning out to be a pretty great revamp.

So a bit more in depth:

Style;

The style of the story is great so far, not come overly far but judging from the author's other works so far as well as the original, I think it's safe to say that the style is of good quality.

Story;

Well, the story hasn't really come in to play yet, we know his long, long-distance goal (Saving humanity) but we don't know much else since it is so early. It is also a small minus that the story isn't very unique. While it is a great read it is basically a combination of two different books (Reincarnator and AN) and so far I think it would just be better to read those two seperately. But I do think this has good potential

Grammar;

Not much to say, the author has never really had any problems with grammar as far as I can tell. Some small mistakes from time to time, but nothing distracting.

Character;

This one I rated a bit lower just because we haven't gotten much character debelopment yet, we ARE only 30 chapters in, but it seems that the author is trying to pull in other characters from the start which hopefully pans out and doesn't end up with empty characters with one objective.

So tl:dr, not really unique, more of a revamp of another of the author's book with big elements from another book, but with great potential. Almost no grammar mistakes, a smooth style with quick character introduction.

great style and story so far.

only thing i will say, in the chapter when Shin kills the Golden Merekai you say that he "turns the safery off" on a glock 19. A glock 19 has only a Trigger safety. 

if you trully want Shin to turn the safety off for dramatic effect as in anticipation, you could switch his glock fo a Beretta 92, also a reliable 9mm gun. (im not really a gun nut, just know some stuff in case... well the zombies and shit)

I should start this off by saying I enjoyed reading it. But. BUT. ItFeels like a translated bad Chinese novel from webnovel. So much fluff and repeating things to get word count up. Also, very much a case of telling not showing

It is good to see that author is publishing elsewhere besides signing off the creative rights to qidian international. 

Author admits that it is inspired by Korean novel reincarnator and the similar vibe can be felt on the first chapters. But it's just general theme (survival of the race, removal of internal enemies, getting allies, etc.)
So if you've read Reincarnator, Master Hunter K, etc., it's another book exploring similar themes. 

The story is just starting but I think it is going to shape up as a decent reading material. (Author also writen evolving from nothing, so I'd expect something eventually hitting the tops of the stories.

Plot is great but those.. redundancies..

Well, i really like the setup and plot.. But there are two things that freaks me out..

1) Author repeats full pharagraphs of descriptions EVERY FEW chapters. It takes only 5-10 minutes to read between them. It feels like author thinks that his readers are brain dead or a goldfish. Few times i even had strong feeling that i somehow opened one of the previous chapters and started a new because he didn't even bothered with alternate spelling. 
2) For some reason author repeatedly zones out from the current situation to write full chapters of flashbacks and almost meanless ( like my first point ) or overdosed with information descriptions. For example we have POV of the people in dangerous situation, MC intervenes and saves them. After that author switches back to MC and insted of interacting with them he zones out for a full chapter to remember for N-th time what were his reasons, why he won't help them futher, his desctiptions of skills and abilities and so on. 
Its not like i have something agains flashbacks or inputs of information every time and then but it should be MUCH MORE seldom and short.

A little disappointed

This story feels worse than any of his previous works.

It suffers alot from the need of the author to write every little detail and reason for any specific action by the MC ( the symptom of "telling instead of showing" how many call it).

Many things are being repeated and repeated again for no clear reason.

I would expect this kind of storytelling from a new author, not an experienced one (even though the grammar is fine).

All in all im still enjoying it, mostly because i liked apocalypse now and am happy about reading more like it.

Story/Plot

Most people probably wouldn't consider this a spoiler, but I'll be describing a few aspects that this story has, without spoiling specific events from the story.

Spoiler: Spoiler

Writing Style

Despite all that, I'm hesitant to recommend this novel because the writing style almost makes it read as though it were the direct transcription of a comic book. My primary concern in this regard is that action scenes are filled with crude forms of onomatopoeia (e.g. "WHOOSH", "SHKKK", and "CLANG"). Second, the main character's exact thoughs are far too present for my tastes; thankfully these thoughts are delimited in single quotes and attributed to the MC (rather than simply being used as narration, as many Royal Road novels are prone to do), but I still dislike it and consider it a violation of the "show don't tell" adage.

Of course, take this with a grain of salt because different people have different thoughts on writing style. Although I gave a low style rating, that's just based on my personal preference, not some official style guide. All of my biggest concerns appear in the first chapter, so if you're worried about style just give that one chapter a read and see what you think.

Had promise. Ruined.

I really want to like this story as the idea sounds interesting and not overly done on RR, as well as the author already having tried a few novels previously (failed, but still tried), and eventually you just want the guy to succeed. But some things just really tickle my pickle and not in a good way.

This goes into why i've given this story such a low style and overall score.

So, it's already been said many times in other reviews, but this reads like a poorly translated chinese novel. Overly descriptive. Overly dramatic. Takes itself too seriously. Every thought of the MC is written down, and when it's not, it's alluded to like it's some huge secret the author wants to reveal later on and tries miserably to keep you in suspence by trying to make the MC sound mysterious and "cool". Every single tiny revelation is written in its own mini paragraph to emphasize it, like it's some big information that's getting revealed. All it does is make it feel like a bad, clichéd anime and gets very tiring very quickly.

Next, the author's obsession with making the MC sound "cool". There are many POV changes in this story, however, all of them have to do with the MC in some way and all of them are there for the sole purpose of making the MC sound "badass". Entire fight scenes are repeated in different chapters, first with a bystander's perspective to show how cool the MC is, then with the MC's perspective, just to show off how smart he is in coming up with the plan.

Random soldier POV: wow this guy's amazing, I wish I could be like him.
Commander of squad POV: wow this guy's amazing, he saved our lives, I need to train harder to be like him!!
MC's companion POV: proceed to write an entire chapter about how mysterious and amazing he is while adding in the barest hints of romantic feelings because the guy's just so amazing, I mean how could she not want some of that, right?

It gets to the point where I've skipped entire chapters because I'd rather not sit through another sigh-fest.

Now comes the most important part of this whole review and why I keep wanting to drop the novel...
The author. Doesn't. Change!!!!!!
There are hundreds of comments and tens of reviews all mentioning things that could be improved upon. Many of them going over the exact same thing. The author refuses to change, hasn't improved since the first chapter of this novel and continues on with the same glaring flaws that people keep pointing out. Many of these flaws are even in all of his previous novels. Even I've written comments hoping to help him with his writing skill. But nothing. Ever. Changes. I am frankly astounded that he's managed to close his eyes to it all and ignore everything. I get not being a good writer. I get being new to the scene and still figuring things out. But not changing or improving yourself after years of writing? 

That's just letting your readers down.

 Truthfully I loved the older story that was in earth and had TITANS but I am happy to see that the story kinda continues the legend of the life orb master. Fighting

Feels like a translation

 Decent read, nice story line ( although I've seen similar storylines in other novels, but its a pass ).

 

But damn ... the writing style reminds me of those translated chinese wuxia novels you find on Qidian... its suffering so much from a case of "describing instead of showing it" that i can only describe it as unhealthy for my eyes. If you are into chapters fluffed up with unnecessary "descriptions" that feel like it was added to make chapters feel longer and really awkward borderline cringe  scenes, go ahead.
