Chaos Rings Review: Exquisite J-RPG From Square Enix Stuns and Amazes (Video)
I know that Chaos Rings dates a few years back, but I didn’t have the opportunity of playing this excellent RPG. A few days ago I took advantage of the cheaper price tag of the game, 50% less thanks to a reduction and bought it for $4. The title was tested on Samsung Galaxy S4 and worked great.
The game comes from Square Enix, who have a huge experience in the RPG segment and as usual it resembles a Final Fantasy title. We’ve got turn based battles, exploring sections and lovable characters, plus a lots of items and weapons. This JRPG finds your main characters in a mystery place called Ark Arena, where they must battle both beasts and human foes to gain immortality.
There are 4 scenarios to play in this game, for over 12 hours of gameplay and fun. Chaos Rings relies on a two character party and your attacks can be performed in solo mode or pair mode. The magic is done via Genes, that are taken over from the beasts you face. You can associate various genes to your equipment, like mouse genes, tiger genes, dragon genes and more.
There are also puzzles to solve and chests and characters to interact with. Boss battles were included as well, plus elementals that greatly affect battles. Ice enemies are vulnerable to fire and fire enemies will react badly to ice, for example. After battle you get the local currency which is ohnz, that you can use to buy items and weapons at the shop. The graphics in Chaos Rings are very nice, old school in a way and the music is a big sinister and gloomy, fitting the theme of the game.
This is a perfect Final Fantasy replacement, that from us gets a 9.5 out of 10. You can download it from here.
