    CHAOS RINGS takes full advantage of the iPhone and iPod touch’s capabilities. Using a classic game system that any RPG fan will enjoy, it presents an epic tale consisting of four different scenarios, all brought to you with gorgeous sound and unbelievably smooth 3D graphics.

    The story revolves around a tournament where combatants fight for their lives: the Ark Arena. Upon choosing a pair of characters, one male and one female, you will then have to fight against the other pairs. Each pair has their own story, and the truth behind the Ark Arena will not be revealed until each story is completed.

    +Reviews of the iPhone version
    Chaos Rings is the only title I will be playing for quite some time, outside of my normal review requirements.

    The turn-based fighting is gratifying and never got old, and the story and character development remains immersive even in short play sessions.

    The iPhone finally has its own triple-A Square Enix RPG that actually reaches the heights of a Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger.

    The story, and characters found within Chaos Rings are the most interesting and intriguing I have come across for the iPhone, and perhaps I have to go back to Final Fantasy VII to find it’s equal.

    Chaos Rings was a singular achievement on the iPhone, and it continues to impress on the iPad, even with its upscaling blemishes.

    Chaos Rings is not an amazing adventure game for the iPad. It is an amazing adventure game – period.

    So when it all comes down to it, what you have here is a classic Square Enix RPG that you can play wherever you are, without having to make any major compromises in your expectations. Sure, it costs more than the other icons on your iPad and, yes, its control scheme is weirdly out of place.
