View Full Version : Chaos Rings Series

1st Jun 2012, 01:40
To me, it feels like Chaos Rings holds a lot of potential as a series.

The series is in a position to start fresh - focused in where it goes, free from any conceptions fans have about it as a whole. Though better left for a more appropriate thread, this is a major problem I believe the Final Fantasy series now faces. And better still, Chaos Rings begins in a time where it will always look great, and can freely tap into the sensibilities of modern RPGs.

I feel like all the little things CR II has introduced so far really goes a long way in showing the potential Chaos Rings has as a series. Plot-wise, it gives a completely new situation of world-ending importance, while still keeping the high level of personal drama the series has held. And all the metaphysical concepts of parallel realities and endless cycles still seem to be present in the new story, even though it's a completely new situation, and possibly even world. The series now has established kinds of magic, growth and battle systems, while adding limit break-esque techniques and summons in the form of Awakenings and Ophin's. It even has a returning 'mascot' character within Piu-Piu, who I'm sure has a good reason to be kicking around in the second game with lost memory.

The writing and characterization seem to be very well done through the series so far as well. It's down-to-earth and understandable, even the characters are placed in truly fantastic situations. Whoever is handling the series so far defintiely cannot be critized for the same reasons that many JRPGs are nowadays.

Overall, I'm just really pleased with what I've seen so far. And really excited for the potential Chaos Rings the series holds. As long as the series stays focused and knows what it's doing, there is definitely great things to come.

(P.S. I haven't gotten very far in Omega, as I was put off by the retread nature of the game, even though I did like the greater focus on a single story. As such, please mark Omega spoilers reasonably clearly. Thanks.)

Not sure about iOS, but Chaos Rings and Chaos Rings Omega is on sale at the US/Canada Playstore for 3.99 each. I finally caved and bought them both.

Just started CR. Simple, but entertaining enough. I try not to let myself get swept up in graphics, but whoa, the graphics are pretty amazing for a mobile game O_O

What a great game. Just beat CRII. Well, finished the story. This truly is what I have been waiting for from square enix. Simple yet complex. The story is above average, too. Just a great title. I would recommend for ANY fan of JRPG.

What the Android system requirements for Chaos Rings? I bought the game on Google Play, and although it said my device (a Kyocera Rise) was compatible, when I'm playing there are frequent freezes and crashes.
Any help is appreciated =)

so when you play at battle mode , you can do special battle and anything more at every level ?

18th Jun 2015, 14:57
I really want to buy this game, but two things would have to happen first:
1. MFI Controller support - seems like a big oversight, why would this not be included from the start? Are there any plans to actually implement this?
2. iCloud sync - as of right now, if you play on iPad your session does not carry over to iPhone - are there any plans to address this?

These are two very basic things that shouldn't have been missing from the final version of an iOS game, otherwise it *looks* awesome!

From those who have played the game, are there any touch-specific activities or any reason why MFI controller will not be added in the future?

Dear Square Enix Team.

My name is Benny, a very big fan of your CHAOS RING title. Had played all of the Chaos Ring series on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Android). The best series among all three, Chaos Ring 3 is my favorite. I was impressed on how much changes, improvements on the gameplay experience, graphics and even the story line. If Square Enix is planning to make CHAOS RING 4, i hope my suggestions below can help. It's also something that i hope to experience in the next series of CHAOS RING 4!

• Party

I personally really like how the party system had change from the "Tag team" in the previous series of Chaos ring 1 and 2, to "3 in a team" in Chaos ring 3! Now that's what i call RPG!

• Card Gene

Card Gene combination and upgrade system is acceptable as many RPG out there do have such play style.

Things i might hope to see in the next series are...

• Battle style

All the 3 series are using the turn based combat which were very old fashion of play a RPG nowadays. How about a change? Something like Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core in the PSP or Final Fantasy Type-0? Yup, maybe Square Enix can consider changing Chaos ring from old fashion RPG into ARPG? Below are some drafts of ideas i drawn.

http://i62.tinypic.com/35d2ngx.jpg http://i59.tinypic.com/wrxkb6.jpg

• Mini Map system

I really really glad that Square Enix had changed from the squarish map in Chaos ring 1 & 2 to the radar map in Chaos ring 3. Please maintain the style from Chaos ring 3 for the next series.

The squarish map sometime was kind of confusing where the radar style is far much more detailed and easy to read.


• Solo / Multiplayer mode

Hope that CHAOS RING 4 can have both Solo & multiplayer modes. To let Chaos ring Fans have the option to play either one. When we have wifi access, we can play multiplayer mode. When we do not have wifi where we are and we can play solo mode.

Hope my opinions might help, and i am looking forward that CHAOS RING 4 will have a big chance to impress your FANS!!

So I take it no one has any answers?

I just purchased Chaos Rings 3, it doesn't even start on my iPhone 6s plus!!

Please please please please fix it already.

After bypassing the startup crash with airplane mode, the screen is stretched on iphone 6s plus, it's barely playable.

When can we expect a fix?

30th Nov 2015, 02:40
Are you ever going to fix this ??
