As the years start running out, you often find that life has left you completely alone. This is what has happened to one military veteran who’s lived through many of history’s “flash points”. In order to inject some color into his final days, the former soldier signs a contract with a company that has developed a fully immersive virtual world.
Project Alpha Rome is a multi-level city plagued by endless wars between humans and mutants. You can play as either species. The best argument in favor of living here is the firepower and the reflexes of your weapons. Our hero chooses the nickname “Volper” and sets out on his path alone, preferring not to fall into the ranks of an existing clan.
Thanks to this strategy, he manages to spot things other players have missed, even in the simplest of locations, meaning he progresses much more quickly than they do. His attentive and reflective attitude to his surroundings prompts him to ask more and more questions about the purpose of the project. Why has Alpha Rome really been created?
I really enjoyed reading this military scifi litrpg book. It has a seriously cool MC that figures things out on the run and does not take prisoners. The setting is in a game where there are sixteen floors. Floors five and below are considered contested. Enemies abound, from mutated animals to mechanical drones they constantly keep the MC and his allies on their toes. The translation is excellent and I am looking forward to reading book two.
Some odd artifacts from the russian translation, but overall, it was a very good book, and one I think would fit well into any LitRPG fan's library or read shelf.
Alpha Rome is my favorite litrpg. Im anxiously awaiting book 2 and hope the translation is better.

Great read, can't wait for book two. Some of the translations are a little odd but the book is still extremely good.
I read this in the earlier version and was always disappointed at the whiners that let a little bit of grammar ruin a good series. I always assumed folks read for entertainment but you wouldn't think so from all the whining. I am glad the series is finally coming back, good deal I guess the whiners will just have to find something else to cry about.
