    The iOS platform matures once more thanks to the Chaos Rings series as the third title in the series proves itself to be a true sequel complete with revisions and tweaks to the basic formula, while adding more depth the the gameplay and managing to pace itself with confidence; it's not a match for the greats of the genre, but it's without peer on this platform.

    All in all, Chaos Rings II is a great RPG for iOS that has restored some of my faith in the platform for carrying more serious games instead of casual diversions.

    What makes a great JRPG? A compelling story? Solid, turn-based fights? Chaos Rings II is got them all, and it's also packet with superb graphics and sounds.

    In many ways, Chaos Rings II is the quintessential JRPG. You will spend a lot of time grinding. You will be gently but firmly led along the story's path to its inevitable end. You will see all of the familiar JRPG tropes. However, that's not necessarily a bad thing, but your decision in regards to whether or not you actually want to purchase the game is going to be dependent on this. For all of its flaws, Chaos Rings II has done more than ample justice to the formula. It's refined, it's meaty, and it's definitely worth the high price of entry.

    It should also be noted that Chaos Rings II is an audiovisual treat. The in game soundtrack is paired perfectly with the most gorgeous graphical display I have yet to see on my iPhone 4.

    Chaos Rings II is an excelent J-RPG for iOS devices with nice mechanics and brilliant narrative; just the excesive price tag could be an impediment for many potential users.

    I would be remiss if I didn't take at least a moment to talk about the game's visuals, because they are stunning. The way Chaos Rings II depicts a world without time is breathtaking, with droplets from frozen waterfalls hanging suspended in space and time and cherry blossom leaves hanging in midair, their voyage to the ground interrupted. This is the sort of game that makes you wonder just how impressive games can look on an iPhone, and if we're just scratching the surface of what the device can truly do.

    A brilliant JRPG that builds on the successes of its predecessors. Chaos Rings II isn't quite perfect, but it more than justifies its premium price tag.

    A beautiful, full-featured RPG that highlights what Square Enix can do on iOS. Clunky storytelling and a high price prevent the game from reaching its full potential, but gorgeous environments and an expanded battle system more than make up for it.

    Chaos Rings II confirms once again the ability to dream in the Square Enix fans with their longevity to a title, featuring a deep storyline and above the level of its predecessors Final Fantasy.

    Chaos Rings II isn't exactly a major renovation of the original game, but it doesn't need to be. A must-own for JRPG fans.

    While it does little to push the boundaries of what an RPG can be, Chaos Rings II is still perhaps one of the better, more solid examples of the genre.

    Despite its shortcomings, remains deep and complex. [Issue#122, p.111]
