    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.

    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.

    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 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.

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

    This is a masterpiece, no less. Chaos rings 2 can give you so much emotions, that any stupid arcade-puzzle game like angry birds can not give.This is a masterpiece, no less.
