Chaos Rings II Trailer (Video)

Square-Enix is preparing to jump into the iOS arena once again, with the "Reveal" of Chaos Rings II. The video bears all the hallmarks of classic Squeenix fare -- stoic men wielding large swords, fearsome monsters, swirling rays of light, and everyone's favorite, a Japanese voice actress yelling in highly distressed tones -- helpfully superimposed at times over an iPhone, just in case you've forgotten what that rectangular gizmo in your pocket looks like. I haven't played the original Chaos Rings, on account of my current "complete lack of Apple products," but if the reviews are any indication, it's definitely worth a go. The game was critically acclaimed, earning four stars (out of five) from GamePro, 9.5 from Destructoid, and 9.0 from IGN -- the latter of which gave Chaos Rings their "Editor's Choice" award.

While the idea of a cell phone RPG may seem superficially absurd, I'm of the belief that a good game is a good game, regardless of the platform -- I do, however, share David Lynch's very NSFW view of movies on cellphones -- despite the fact that I find it less immersive as the console experience. That aside, in the context of the legions of casual games on iOS and Android -- the latter of which is a particular point of frustration for me -- it's refreshing to see games that not only have higher aspirations than their myriad counterparts, but are being produced by experienced highly-regarded developers.

im a big fan of the original. dungeon crawling. simple puzzles without the distraction of random battles. never finished it though, it would KILL my battery, and it just took up too much space.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
