S&S; Mobile Review: Chaos Rings II

Title: Chaos Rings II

With major console releases slowing down (not for long though), this gives leeway for playing through various mobile games.  Chaos Rings 2's classic JRPG mechanics and cool story made this an easy playthrough.
S&S; Mobile Review: Chaos Rings II Presentation/Story:
Chaos Rings II takes a while to get going, but when you start to know whats going on, it becomes one of the best stories on the iOS.  Your main character Darwin ends up being kidnapped, and then forced to fight numerous battles.  I have played the previous game, and its not as team based as the Chaos Rings 1, Darwin wil be the center of focus for the sequel.  The narrative continuously drives the game to new heights and always keeps you interested.  Visually, the game is superior to the previous game, and many other games for the iOS.  Environments, are also impressively rendered, resembling Final Fantasy 7 at times.  The Japanese voice acting is OK, I wish the team would have gave us English voice work, but subtitles get the job done.
S&S; Mobile Review: Chaos Rings II Core Gameplay:
Chaos Rings II is your basic Japanese turn-based style RPG, and it works great.  With a few cool new innovations like the ability to attack in pairs and switching between a numerous amount abilities, this is the best of its particular genre on the market.  Your HP refills with each completed random-encounter battle.  The magic and summoning system have been changed as well, the new Sopia and Advent attacks are generally the same, other than the new coat of paint.  Your special attacks or your Awake attack, becomes very useful as they deal the most damage.  You'll learn new Awake attacks each time you level up.  
S&S; Mobile Review: Chaos Rings II Final Thoughts:
Square Enix boldly priced Chaos Rings at $17.99, which is pretty steep.  Its a solid JRPG with a cool story, with gorgeous visuals and solid Japanese voice acting.  If you take the deep plunge, you won't be disappointed.
