Publisher's Summary

The near future. A UFO appears on Earth's orbit. Ignoring all contact attempts, it showers the planet with priceless artifacts. Choose: perfect health, $10 million, or seven years in prison, per the new amendment.
The night of the meteor shower, Paul and his friends run around the city, engaging in quick fights with citizens gone crazy, trying to obtain one of the artifacts.
But is it really selfless help the mysterious aliens are offering? What awaits a human who holds a precious crystal in his hand? Where will he wake up tomorrow? What if the first thing he sees when he opens his eyes is the blinking line of text "Loading location: virtual training ground Kubinka-Digital. Welcome, cadet! You're now space fighter pilot!"?

I just don't know

I don't really know what to say other then I like what he was trying to do but i just does not have that magic of his other books.

Maybe it's that he bogs you down in the minutiae of the world and forgot about character development. For most of the book i was lost. I didn't know or really care where they were going and why they were going there. The whole leveling system in this book seemed overly convoluted and lacked any real in game meaning as to awesome perks and abilities.

Good

I really liked the Play to Live Series. This one however didn't have much in the way of world building.
To really make a transition meaningful you have to contrast each world type. This one seems to rush into the part they wanted to write about without as much character development or meaningful setting description.
