SUMMARY: A true RPG for the iPhone

Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

RPGs have been on the iPhone for almost as long as there has been an app store. There have been some great games released like Dungeon Hunter, Ravensword, and more, but nothing that truly brought a real RPG experience to the iPhone. Well, leave it to Square Enix, the godfather of all RPG developers to create the next level.

Chaos Rings is an RPG created specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch and has definitely raised the bar for the genre on the device. The game plays exactly like an older-style console game. It features a custom soundtrack, some amazing graphics, and hours of awesome content to wade through. There is so much to discuss in this game but I'm going to keep the review to my usual snippet style.

The controls are the best I've ever seen for an RPG on the iPhone. They were smooth and responsive, much better than the Final Fantasy port that hit the device earlier this year. The only negatives I could really find with this game were the somewhat simple storyline and mundane battles, but even those weren't as bad as I thought they were going to be. I'm not much for RPGs, but this is one of those games that charges a high price and is worth the money. If you love RPGs, definitely check this one out, you won't be disappointed. .
