    Chaos Rings Ω might be more of the same, but in this case that's a very good thing.

    While not as stunningly original as the first title, Chaos Rings Omega is still a great RPG that manages to polish the formula even more thanks to an engaging storyline and minor gameplay improvements.

    Personally, I think it's worth the price for anyone looking for a good RPG to have on-the-go – assuming they aren't already loaded down with iOS role-playing games, that is.

    When I played Chaos Rings on the iPhone, the visuals seemed razor sharp. On the iPad, it looks like the game's environments were simply enlarged from lower resolutions, hence the fuzziness.

    With a 10-12 hour story mode, an optional new-game+, and a fairly high difficulty curve to tie it all together, CRO is a robust - if not all that replayable - RPG.

    Less a prequel and more a rerun, but this remains one of the most fully-featured and best presented Japanese role-players on the App Store.

    A decent enough game for those who enjoyed the first and want a harmless time waster. Compared to the original, however, Chaos Rings Omega is significantly lacking. It copies mechanics, re-uses assets, and mimics the entire plot of the first game, but it lacks the originality and surprisingly original characters that allowed the first to be a charmer.
